‘Don’t worry, your genetic code is being re-written, just hold on and you’ll be just fine’ Said Atlas ever so calmly. My response: ‘Yea, ONLY MY F******* GENETIC CODE!’

I am a harsh critic. I rate games very vigilantly and it takes a lot to convince me on something. But Bioshock, it takes the biscuit. Not only did it utterly thrill me, it physically got me jumping up and down as I stepped out of the Bathysphere for the first time. (Thought I was going something bad didn’t you?

It’s weird reviewing a game that I played a decade ago. All I can remember back then was being scared of Sligs, and laughing at how you could make the main character fart. To be honest, 10 years on, much has changed.

I’m not afraid of Sligs anymore.
