Anyone know if there's an "Easy" mode?  I want the game, but my lack of time with school, hobbies, and the fact I suck at FPS's makes me just wanna enjoy the experience without too-too much hassle.

This game is looking really, really sweet and like it'll live up to what they established in Bioshock.

BioShock was way too hyped in my opinion. I loved the ideas behind it, but much of the narrative just leave me with the sensation that both games were pretentious and it didn't help either that the multiplayer in BioShock 2 was pretty annoying.

BioShock Infinite doesn't seem to be just full of ideas with questionable execution. We'll see.

I got the "One Tin Soldier Rides Away" song stuck in my head now.  SPANKS.

Apparently has some "12 Monkeys" feel to it... we'll see if that actually turns out true

So many tweets today from people who have finished it already. Kind of makes me want the game slightly less. Although, games people tend to complete in 5 to 10 hours often take me 20 to 30 hours to finish, so who knows? I often wonder why that is, anyway. Maybe because I tend not to play games for more than 2 hours at a time, so a lot of my time is spent remembering what I was doing? Who knows, a subject best left for another topic.

In summation, I'm sure the game is wonderful but it doesn't seem like it has the length to warrant paying $50-60

Some of the reviews I've read mentioned 15-20 hours.  Most seemed enthralled in the world and took the time to see all the little details instead of rushing through.

I've never played Bioshock before but probably going to download the Steam version this weekend.  I'm pretty interested.

It's short, but I readily admit that I blew through it because I wanted to see where the narrative was going.  I could have spent more time exploring (I had damn near 30 lockpicks left at the end, so I know I missed a lot of shit), but the story is what was driving me forward.  If you wanted to take it slower and explore the world, then that option certainly exists.

I'd rather have a mindblowing 5-10 hour game than a 20 hour game with some serious doldrums

Same here. At least I get a sense of accomplishment in a reasonable amount of time. Longer games just take too darn...welll...LONG.
I'm like Mr. Klutz above, though, in that games that take other people 10 hours end up taking me double the time. I don't know if it's all the starting and stopping, or what, but even short games take me weeks to play through.

Gonna be hard for any game this year to top Infinite in my book.  Had a wonderful time with it and loved the ending.

100% in agreement.  I'm also glad I grabbed the PC version where I won't give a fuck about achievements.

I finished the game today and what an amazing game it is. For me this is easily among best games I played this generation.
The ending is really well crafted, without spoiling anything, I loved how it all wrapped up together.

Only thing sad, in me, is that I'm not the kind of people that usually can dissect a story as you go through it and point the details right away, I have to either let it sink in and think about it or read some constructive arguments about it.
So, if you are in someway like me, I recommend doing as I did, play in max in a 1 to 2 hours session and let it all sink in, thinking about what is happening and the game can be much more enjoyable then it already is.
