I must admit that Bioshock looks fantastic and I love the Art Deco setting.... but I just found myself getting bored after a while. I've only done about 40% of the game and I've never like the Unreal Engine's game physics...always seems a bit "clunky".

I have been playing R6Vegas2 and i have notoced the same thing about the "clunkiness". My fav physics are on the source engine. theres something just so satisfying in seeing a body do 3 flips when they are hit with a nade

No and unfortunately you shouldn't have said something in the first place. Your post was no where near on topic and it was a complete waste. Go flame in someone elses thread.

Anyway, Bioshock was an over hyped game for me and from what I saw. All this hype died after the game was released. Army of 2 was another one. My office was really looking forward to it but after it came out, heard nothing but moping and bad crap about it.

Bioshock was definitely overrated, it was great but didn't live up to the hype, then again most games don't. A few games that I know that lived up to their hype were Goldeneye, Half-Life, Portal, Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun and the original as well.

WHAAAAAT?!?!Well I guess everybody has their opinion eh? I thought cod2 was amazing.

For me the most hyped game ever is...CS and CSS, **** why so hard? Its like you play for 1 minute and wait for the next round for 3 mins. Im sure that its because the vets are godly good..but where do us newbs in css go?

CSS is tough when you first start out. Play it consistently for a couple of weeks and you'll get the hang of it. Nothing more satisfying than getting a few headshots in a single round in Counter Strike.

edit: Well, almost nothing
