BioShock was Unmissable

Although to be fair most of the people who played Bioshock won't be able to play System Shock 2, because System Shock 2 wasn't made to be played on a twin-stick controller, with your feet. Thus it is difficult to get on with if, for instance, your idea of "aiming" is to stand on the spot, swivelling gracefully around one axis at a time. Then overshooting. And overcorrecting. And generally acting like a complete tool, which is what consoles make you do.

The same thing applies to Far Cry 2 - not trying to be the same kind of game at all, of course, but I interpreted it as a spirited attempt to do something rather special that was destroyed by the demands of five year olds with Playstations.
As you may have realised, I resent this.
