Quite an interesting article on the philosphical underpinings of the background in Bioshock (original link from Blues)

I did enjoy the comment:

"We joke that everyone should have known that a game about a pseudo-objectivist dystopia would be a huge hit,"

I found that an extrememly interesting article.

For me, Bioshock was an experience that really made me think about morality and philosophy and the choice of "two evils". I always wondered why people were so hyped over it, i thought they were all crazy, then one fateful day i went to a LAN and borrowed someone's PC and tehre it was...

It was fun in a kind of oh-my-god-i-don't-know-how-i'm-playing-this kind of way, but the more i played it the more i realised that it was making me think as well as get better at shooters ;) , it's an experience i'll definately remember.

(don't worry, i'm still definately an Unreal fan-girl ;) )
