The world of video games is vast. However, there is a stand-out trilogy. “Bioshock,” “Bioshock 2” and “Bioshock Infinite” are games produced by 2k Boston (now Irrational Games). The first two games are set in an underwater, art-deco, steampunk world called Rapture. However, the third game takes place in a city named Columbia that sits above the clouds. Each game starts the same way — with a lighthouse and a pod that either takes you fathoms down in the depths of the ocean or thousands of feet into the air.

The games are in the first-person shooter format and are full of action. Each game took roughly 10 hours to complete and was very fast-paced. The game ran very well on my laptop and each objective was clearly stated. The enemies were enough of a challenge to keep you on your toes and entertained. Each game has its own features and puzzles exclusive to them, so it didn’t feel like playing the exact same game three times in a row.

The storylines are interesting and easy to follow, apart from “Bioshock Infinite,” which gets a little confusing at the end. I highly recommend these games to anyone who enjoys atmospheric and action-packed games.
