BioShock was my runner-up for game of the year last year, and I feel it’s one of the finest games available for the Xbox 360. I know most game movies are terrible, but given the setting and style of BioShock, I think they might be able to pull off something spectacular. I just really hope they don’t play with the story or themes too much, because the game is a true masterpiece from both visual and storytelling standpoints. If you own a 360 and still haven’t played BioShock…I hate your face.
