I wonder how long that will stay up before Parker Brothers finds out about it.

Or the Take-Two people. It'll probably stay up longer than my Scientology/Disney themed mashup of "When Doves Cry," though.

"When Thetans Clear" was such a great song too.

Their choice of board game is a pretty good fit for Bioshock's overall quality.

If it helps you can just pretend we're enjoying this ironically codacorolla.

Spoiler: Halfway through Bioshock Monopoly, you find out Mr. Monopoly is subliminally controlling you, explaining why you inexplicably passed on buying Mayfair earlier in the game.

Bioshock's a good game, if you're looking for a low-difficulty FPS with some boilerplate RPG elements. I enjoyed it, but it wasn't like KOTOR meets HL2, say.

Its story and morality are vastly overrated, though.

I probably should've just kept my mouth shut, but it mostly comes from fatigue of Bioshock being held up as the best game to represent games as a serious medium when it's not very well made in most respects. mccarty.tim gets it right exactly. In this way it reminds me of Monopoly, which gets a lion share of public attention regarding board games when, in reality, it's a pretty bad game.

I apologize for derailing the thread. I hate it when people do that to stuff I post.

Is a man not entitled to the cash in the center of the board when he lands on free parking?

Would you kindly put a hotel on Mayfair?

It does have really nice art design, though, and an impressive aesthetic - which I think is probably more important when it comes to a Monopoly redesign than the gameplay.

In that sense then, wouldn't you agree that Bioshock & Monopoly are a match made in heaven?

codacorolla: "Apologizing" while continuing to do the same thing is pointless.
