So, news around various internet camp-fires is that Bioshock 2 has been completely 100% confirmed. This, of course, does not surprise me. Once EA bought out 2K and…wait. I keep forgetting that not everyone plays and keeps up with video games. Excuse me while I laugh at you. Sorry. Anyhow, Bioshock was and is my Game of the Year 2007. So good. But I fear for Bioshock 2. As was the case for the Matrix and Pirates of the Caribbean, just because something was good does not mean it needs a successor. I’m sure some parents love and enjoy their first child. And since it was so much fun the first time, lets have another baby! And, thus, why so many 2nd born kids end up being horrible people. Sometimes the first time is the best, and I firmly believe this to be the case of Bioshock. They don’t need to make one. The first story was complete and fine in its perfection. And wasn’t Bioshock pulled from System Shock and System Shock 2? So, we are actually going to get System Shock 4? The point is, I doubt it will be good. My advice for the developers? Sand. Go the opposite route. Be bold.
