Atlas did not care about the girls, and being overly evil that early into the game would've been bad for his cover.

After all, if the main character becomes suspicious and stops helping on his own, saying "would you kindly" every time he wants him to take a step in a particular direction would be rather tiresome.

Alright, so I finally beat the first Bioshock tonight. First of all, reading the previous comments here, all of your "would you kindly" comments now make a lot more sense. As for the game, it was pretty good. There is still quite a bit of the story that I'm not sure I completely understand, but I got the gist of it. I do think it got a bit repetitive like some people have said, but when it mixed things up it did it well. Things like fetch quests and escort missions that are often horrible in other games were done well and actually enjoyable. The final boss was a bit on the easy side, and I almost never strayed from my default setup of electricity plasmid and machine gun weapon (switching to shotgun when I was low on ammo) throughout the game, but I enjoyed it. From what I know I think I will like Infinite the best of the three simply because of the setting, as long as the story doesn't become too anti-religion; but I think I need a little break from Rapture before I start number 2.

Also, my Switch tells me I have been playing it for over 25 hours, so I don't know how everyone has said it is an 8-10 hour game.

@Xyphon22 I finished Bioshock 1 last month. I thought the first third was good, but then it got repetitive. I didn't follow the story that much. I guess it was a great game when it was first released but it's showing its age now.

I completed Bioshock 3 a few days ago and it follows much the same pattern. The first third was good but then gets repetitive. I was glad to finish it, as I had almost lost interest.

Which is best? That's subjective, but for me 1 was, but not by much. Will play 2 but not anytime soon.

@zool I think the fact that there were generally at least a few different ways you could do things made it better for me. I don't usually care for FPSs, but I was able to consistently hack cameras and turrets and rarely actually killed any enemies myself, so that was cool. And then I thought the ending saved it as well, although it would have been better if the change you make at the end actually changed more than just limiting your field of vision. Overall though, I thought it was a good game and looking forward to playing 2 (even though I've heard it is the worst one), but I need to take a break for other things first, notably finishing Trials of Mana.

So, I just finished the first two of the DLC challenge rooms from Bioshock, and if they would have implemented some of these puzzle elements into the main game that would have made it a lot better. Those were pretty fun. I've started the final DLC and completed a couple of rooms, but I'm not sure I care to complete it as it's just battling which is my least favorite part and being forced into extremely limited resources does not sound fun.

@Xyphon22 I wouldn’t say Bioshock 2 if the worst, it’s actually my favourite of the 3. It just doesn’t have the impact of 1 or the more modern-ness of 3 so it’s often left out of the discussion as the best.

@jump I don't really know because I try to avoid knowing too much about games I want to play so as to avoid spoiling/ruining them. Mostly what I have heard is that the main enemy seems to combine the strength and power of a Big Daddy with the skills and speed of a Spider Slicer and comes out at random times and is very annoying, and that does not sound fun. But I'm still looking forward to playing it eventually, just not yet.

The big sisters are not that difficult. Mostly just scary. And there’s nothing random about them. The first few encounters are completely scripted, and the ones afterwards have a rather obvious trigger.

Bioshock 2 is also my favorite of the bunch, mostly because I like the powers and techniques you get, and I like the atmosphere and the concept of playing as a big daddy.

OK, you guys need to stop making me want to jump into 2 already. I have other games that are being neglected. And I think I need something a little brighter for awhile.

I like the Big Sister fights. It gives me a chance to be cunning, I will predict where they are coming from and lay down traps and laugh as they fall to me!

Darn it, you guys! See, that's the kind of thing I was talking about wishing they had added more of the puzzle stuff from the DLC to the main game. I at least have to finally finish Trials of Mana before this, but I was planning on playing something else first, too. But now I just want to play this.

Does the physical version of the Bioshock Collection include all three base games on the cart?

A while back a user in a random comments section suggested this was the case, and I meant to go back to them to clarify/confirm but I never got round to it and can't remember who it was that said it.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

As far as I know, it more or less contains demos of all three games, and you need to download everything else.

You can play a few hours of each game straight from the cartridge but you must download to them to fully play it. One good thing is the downloads are for each game rather than a one big download, so you can download Bioshock 1 complete it and then delete it before moving onto the next one.

I'm really not feeling Infinite as much as the first two but I can't really but my finger on why. By no means is it a bad game but it feels too much like another shooter than than another Bioshock game. Oh well maybe I will finish it this time.

@jump - I know exactly what you mean, I'm experiencing the same thing with Infinite after playing 1 and 2 for the first time.
I'm not sure if it's the slightly different controls for some actions throwing me, or the new bright and (relatively) expansive world. The religion thing being rammed down my throat from the start is getting on my nerves too, but I guess that's setting the story up. (I've only just met Elizabeth, for reference.)
Amazed there is no manual save, especially as the checkpoints can be quite spaced out - means I can't just pop out the game for a quick frame or two of Pure Pool. Missing having a map too. I know a map isn't necessary but I like checking one out as I play.
Having said all that, I am still enjoying it!

I just played Bioshock and Bioshock 2 back to back, I really enjoyed them both!

I hadn't played them before, in some ways I enjoyed 2 more, but 1 is great.

I'm thinking I might have a break and some something else before coming back to infinite.
