Default Bioshock infinite

Overhyped?

I mean, I'm 3 hours in... and yeah, it's OK

Maybe it gets going when you meet the girl?

I really liked it. Bioshock and systemshock 2 both took a little bit to get going but it does a great job of setting up the narrative so that everything that happens once the **** hits the fan makes (sort of) sense.

I haven't been able to finish a game in ages. Even if I get my self all hyped about a new game, after I'm half way in I can bring my self to go on. Guess I'm too old now. lol

Lets see games I bought and was all excited about but couldn't bring my self to finish: Crysis 3, Max Payne 3, Mass Effect 3, Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim, Aliens CM, Alan Wake.... Only game I have finished in recent memory is Borderlands 2, which was just way too addicting.
