GOTY | Number 4 — Bioshock Infinite
Before even playing this game, I probably could’ve told you it was going to end up on this list. With how I felt about the original Bioshock and the track record of Irrational Games, this one was bound to end up somewhere on here. What actually happened with Bioshock Infinite with an impeccably realized world and interesting characters you really come to care for quite a bit.
The combat ended up not being the thing to write home about this time around, don’t get me wrong it was also quite a bit of fun, but that’s not why I took the trip up to Columbia. It was the writing and atmosphere that drove me forward during the course of this adventure and ultimately what made me love it so much. Even with some potential plot complications, this game deserves its spot as my number 4 game on my top 10 list of this year.
