Rapture reconsidered


Bioshock is one of the defining games of its generation. In preparation for the release of its sequel on Feb. 9, the Vintage Game Club is playing through the original. If you'd like to revisit Rapture (or if you're visiting for the first time), you're welcome to join us as we play and discuss the game together.

Then, beginning on Feb. 9, we'll play Bioshock 2 together.

When Bioshock 2 appears, we'll open a new forum to offer VGCers a place to continue the discussion, informed, we hope, by our playthrough of the original.

In case you're not familiar with the VGC, it's for people who may have missed some of the classic titles gamers often refer to. It's also for people who enjoy revisiting older games they've enjoyed in the past. Anyone who loves playing and discussing games is welcome to join in.

As I've mentioned before, we use the term "vintage" purposely because its primary definition: "characterized by excellence, maturity, and enduring appeal" strikes us as just the right way to describe the games we play together. As far as we're concerned a vintage game can be 20 years old or 2 years old. For our purposes, it doesn't really matter.

We all have busy lives, so the VGC is a no-pressure environment. If you decide to start a game with us, but can't continue it, or if you post a comment but can't return to follow up, no big deal. The club is just a framework for bringing us together. Join in, drop out, come back...whatever. We're here to have fun and broaden our knowledge and awareness of important games.
