Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

""Bring us the Girl. Wipe Away the Debt"

With that protoganist Booker DeWitt takes off to the floating city of Columbia to search for a mysterious girl named Elizabeth, and with that as well you treated to one of the most somber, at times depressing, deep, and layered stories to ever hit a video game. Hideo Kojima may be a master storyteller who at times comes off long winded and strange, but he can't hold a candle to Ken Levine.

The third title in the Bioshock series developed the original Bioshock team, is a 15 hr rocket ride with a fanstatic end game that will leave you speechless and moved. The game's amazing story is pushed along by characters with layers and depth to them. Booker is a haunted man, a man with almost no will to live higher than dirt. His past, and his choices haunt him, and everything comes to a head when he sets off a job to wipe away a large debt he acrewed. Not to develop much more into the story,but the characters make this game the most memorable title I have played in a long time. Booker's interactions with the people of Columbia, and the chemistry of Booker and Elizabeth is nothing short of amazing. That is owed to the awesome voice acting of Troy Baker(Booker) and Courtney Draper(Elizabeth), you feel the chemistry, and the clossness of these two with their interactions. It should be noted that Troy Baker is a highly underrated voice actor that needs to get more attention. If this title doesn't garner him more attention, then I don't know what. The music in the game is great as well, featuring some old tunes, and tunes from the last thirty years. The swing version of Tears for Fears "Everybody Want's to Rule the World" is great. Visually this game is gorgeous. The facial movements when the characters talk is nothing short of amazing. The world of Columbia is a world of steam punk style buildings, and patch worked up in the sky with interlaced buildings. Rapture was a man's dream of escaping from Governmental restrain, Columbia is a man's dream of floating above the clouds close to heaven itself. The way it's presented with its patch work steam punk design, grand buildings, and the appearance of the people you feel like that this place actually existed in 1912. The weapon designs look archaic, and ancient consisting of metals crudely welded together. A revolution in early 20th century, the weapons reflect the times, and the steam punk world that surrounds you.

Bioshock Infinite hands down is one of the best games I have ever played with a end game that still lingers in my mind days after beating it. It's story is fantastic, the characters layered, and with a majority of games these days being as generic as generic comes its a welcome and refreshing change. Irrational Games is a brilliant studio headed by a brilliant man. After this masterpiece of the game I cannot wait to see what they bring out in the next gen of video game consoles. If you haven't played this game yet(and why haven't you??) YOU NEED TO PLAY THIS GAME!!!!!
