BioShock (Irrational 2007)
a city like no other. Built on the seafloor of the North Atlantic
ocean, it was a place to escape the growing threat of nuclear war, as
well as government and religious interference, while at the same time
championing things like personal freedom, science and industry.
Construction began in 1945 and it was officially opened up to its
carefully chosen guests on Nov 5, 1946. With its grand Art Deco
architecture, glowing neon signs and glass tunnels connecting the
towering buildings, it was a spectacle that could take your breath away,
time and time again.
BioShock as a whole hits so many right notes and i feel it’s one of gaming’s crowning achievements, especially when it comes to its visuals. Something that’s quickly apparent is that you’ve never played a game that looks quite like this. Its well researched art direction is flawless and coupled with creepy atmosphere and the huge glass windows looking out into the depths, it has a way of mesmerizing you from the second you start playing.
