That bioshock triple is super tempting even though I have it already for 360.

Anyway to filter the Square Enix stuff without showing the DLC?

Seriously... I have the first Bioshock and haven't even finished it (partly cause I don't really have a sufficient gaming rig anymore although this makes me want to rebuild one). How are 2 and Infinite in comparison to the first?

2 was interesting only because you got more exposure to Rapture. The 'wow' factor just wasn't there for me, and I didn't finish it.

Infinite is more similar to 1 in that you get a new place (Columbia) plus new mechanics (e.g. skyhook) and the gun/powers combos is designed more simply plus benefits like you get to keep all your special abilities (shock, fire, whatever) instead of having to pick one or two until you upgrade your slots.

And the new story is interesting. With 2 you more or less know the story and/or it's not as compelling as the story from 1.

I would say 1 > Infinite > 2. My two cents.

Thanks for the insight! I thought I read somewhere an article or snippet that is in accordance with your view on 2 and how it wasn't as interesting as 1. Good to know either way - maybe I'll pass on this just because I still haven't even finished 1 yet! I don't even know if my current system can handle it LOL.

I'm tempted on Lego Hobbit but I think it'll be cheaper soon and I'm just too overloaded with games and little time to play them. I have all Bioshock games on the X360 and only 1 on the PC (it was free). I can't justify $10 since I've already played through them.

I'll offer a different opinion that each successive game is not as good as the prior. I just wasn't impressed by Infinite other than the graphics and detail. The gameplay just wasn't as fun as using plasmids. However, if you don't own any $10 for all 3 seems like a good price. Bioshock 1 played fine for me on an ancient 2 GHz PC with a crap video card. I can't speak of the other 2. Why do I rank Bioshock 1 and 2 up with the Dead Space series as some of my favorites? Because there are so many ways to fight enemies. It's a game where you become skillful. At first I couldn't take down 1 Big Daddy. Then I learned how to set traps or load up bodies with mines and throw them at Big Daddies or even let security drones do all the work for me. I could defeat 1-2 Big Daddies at a time and take almost no damage. Big Sisters were a challenge in number 2, but then I figured out how to take them down easily too (a good freeze followed by drill dash helps a lot). To me the variety and reasonable challenges make it a great game. Too many games are either too easy or too hard, but Bioshock progresses nicely.

Thanks! And thanks for the tips for 1 LOL. I made it to the docks area before life (and wife) finally took over and haven't played since. I have the games saved somewhere too but who knows if I'll be able to find them or they'll even load properly. I remember playing Splinter Cell on the living room HTPC and possibly Bioshock once or twice. Not sure how well it'll all run nowadays though.

2 is about as Good as the first they are very similar. Infinite is okay, it's alot different from the first 2 so it's partly preference, but I feel like the first two were better. The second one also has decent multiplayer if people still play it.

Ever try for the "Iron Balls" achievement?

Columbia (Infinite) is way less dark than Rapture (1 and 2). I liked it a lot and would jump on getting all three at this price if I didn't have them.

Yeah, excellent price on the BS bundle. I already have BS1 though and I'm holding out on a good "GOTY" price on Infinite + DLC around BF this year.
