Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite and Burial at Sea are the real trilogy tbh. :V

@kkslider5552000 I'm actually playing through BioShock 2 right now (still VERY early game mind you). Other than being a bit derivative of the original, it doesn't seem THAT bad right now.

I've not played Bioshock 2 personally but the people behind the other Bioshocks didn't make it, and everything I've heard suggest its an unneeded sequel. That's what I mean more than it being "bad". Some people I know prefer it because the gameplay is better, but I play them for the story so I've never bothered.

1) Danganronpa (Trigger Happy Havoc; Goodbye, Despair; V3)
2) Zero Escape (999; Virtue's Last Reward; Zero Time Dilemma)
3) Second Professor Layton trilogy (The Last Specter; Miracle Mask; Azran Legacy)
4) First Ace Attorney trilogy (Ace Attorney; Justice for All; Trials and Tribulations)
5) Resident Evil PS1 trilogy (Resident Evil; Resident Evil 2; Resident Evil 3: Nemesis)

I could see something displacing my #5 choice over time, but it's hard to imagine the others changing, as they're some of the most narratively cohesive and satisfying trilogies in the medium.

I'm going to list games not on Nintendo systems because most Nintendo franchises are past the trilogy mark and pointing out the classics is a little too easy. I'm also trying my hardest to not point out 'trilogies' that are part of anthologies that feel like trilogies at time of release, because that also feels like cheating.

  • Mass Effect is definitely up there (Even though 3 gets a lot of trash talk, I think the game is still fantastic)
  • Baldur's Gate is definitely going to be up there (especially if 3 turns out to be great at full release)
  • Dead Space (3 is a poor finale, however the game isn't terrible and the first two are modern classics)
  • HITMAN 1, 2 and 3 (the modern ones are actually excellent games)
  • King's Bounty (it's one game but divided into three parts, I think Legend and Armored Princess are the standouts, excited for King's Bounty 2)
  • The Witcher (great games but with a lot of flaws, still hold a special place in my heart since the old days)
  • Half-Life 2 (it's a weird one and contradicts my own rule but I consider it a trilogy with its Episode format, you could say the same about Half-Life 1 and its expansions)

The first Professor Layton trilogy is wonderful (the second trilogy is great too but doesn't quite match the first for me). Also Donkey Kong Country on SNES is an obvious choice but an objectively correct one.

@kkslider5552000 @AnnoyingFrenzy. I think Bioshock 2 is functionally okay, there's just no need for it outside of "more Bioshock". Personally the plot didn't resonate with me, and I think further humanization of the Big Daddies was a mistake.

I actually have similar feelings about Dark Souls II. I'm currently playing through it and you can kind of tell that it was a "B Team" sequel. Still worth a play through, but I'm probably never going to revisit it.

I actually reckon Bioshock Infinite is the weakest of the three myself, not a bad game but it leans too much towards pretentiousness and the gameplay isn't as good as the others.

Bioshock 2 does some great stuff in my opinion which adds to the first game like seeing what the Little Sisters see, Minerva’s Den is probably the best bit of DLC from the entire series, Big Sisters were a great addition especially compared to the rubbish Handymen, it's balanced weapons and powers the best, there's elaboration on the first game lore and in terms of gameplay it's probably my favourite of them all.

@jump Infinite is definitely pretentious. I think thats the risk when there are high expectations and heavy topics addressed (rascism, colonialism, god and country, blahblahblah). I think Inifinite fails to juggle all of that while also...establishing parallels. Because it's the parallels that I think are compelling. One city in the sea, one in the sky. The Big Daddy and The Songbird. Andrew Ryan and Comstock. Infinite could have used some shrewd editing. I mean, you fight a ghost with guns at one point. What the actual hell.

But you're right about the Handymen. They felt obligatory. The chaingun toting George Washington automaton is the real goat.

@Losermagnet Yeah the gun toting George Washingtons were cool but they felt too easy to kill so they lost their specialness compared to the fights with Big Daddies and Big Sisters.

@jump it did feel like the game was a shooting gallery after awhile. I guess the aesthetic of Infinite gotta bigger pop from me than Bioshock 2. I wish I could say more about 2, but I played it once years ago and have almost no memories of it. I finished it, so I must of enjoyed it somewhat, but thats all I have from the experience.

@Losermagnet Infinite's aesthetic like being so bright actually bugs me, I liked how dark and depressing the first two games were so it didn't feel like a Bio-game to me but like you said earlier it was probably an intentional parallel.

Bioshock Infinite is mildly a mess and parts of the gameplay are a bit underwhelming, but I've spent more time thinking about its story than any other video game story, which makes it very easy for me to say it still deserved...most of the praise it got. And even though some parts of its story are worse in hindsight, some parts of it are distressingly far more credible and less unrealistic.
