"I am Andrew Ryan, and I am here to ask you a question. Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

'No,' says the man in Washington, 'it belongs to the poor.'
'No,' says the man in the Vatican, 'it belongs to God.'
'No,' says the man in Moscow, 'it belongs to everyone.'

I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose…


A city where the artist would not fear the censor,
where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality,
where the great would not be constrained by the small.

And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city, as well."

―Andrew Ryan

BioShock. A game that is flawless in every way. Great game play, Imaginative aesthetics and setting, and above all, a story that can be compared to great literature. Bioshock delivers a story that is engaging and characters that are fantasticly written. The world of Rapture pulls you in from the first time you see a Big Daddy to encounters with characters like Sander Cohen. With many different ways to play the game, tons of weapons and plasmids, and endless character customization with tonics, BioShock provides one of the best video game experiences that will ever be made. Not only do I believe that BioShock is the best Xbox 360 shooter, I also believe it one of the best games ever made.
