It’s been about three months (at the time of this writing) since the game had been released. Bioshock Infinite was released on March 26th 2013. On March 27th, 2013, the seed of obsession began to germinate.
I had been seeing the commercials on TV and hearing from twitter how amazing Bioshock Infinite is. My initial thought was “yeah, that looks like a neat game but… I don’t know…”. My hesitation was based purely on the cost of the game, as well as my perception that the game was only available on consoles. I currently own 2 consoles, a Wii (for Netflix), and a NES/SNES clone. This should give you a good idea of my “gamer” street cred. I am a gamer, there’s no doubt about that; but I carefully choose the games I’d like to play, because they are wallet draining. Fine, I’m cheap! There I said it, now I don’t have to pay a therapist. Score!
