BioShock is a first person shooter developed by Irrational Games and published by 2K Games for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. This game is set in 1960, following the story of a man named Jack, who discovers an abandoned underwater utopia. BioShock gameplay includes RPG and stealth elements, a formula that helped the game get a good reception around the world.
This title had a sequel, called BioShock 2, released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2010. In this game, the player assume the role of Subject Delta, a genetically enhanced human roaming around Rapture to protect the Little Sisters. The game received critical acclaim after release, because of its narrative, art-style, characters, ending and gameplay.
The last chapter of the series is BioShock Infinite, released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on March 26, 2013. In contrast to the limited space of Rapture, this videogame features a larger location, with more dynamic combat challenges.
The game is set in 1912 and it sees former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt looking for a young woman called Elizabeth in the floating air city of Columbia. BioShock Infinite won over 85 pre-release awards for the trailer showed at E3 2011, and it’s generally considered one of the best games of the seventh generation of consoles.
