The Wonderful BioShock Infinite Trailer, In Case You Missed It

I don't get attached to many video games. Especially first-person shooters. I play most of them, offer myself the cursory dip into their experience, and shelve them or sell them. But the BioShock series (including BioShock 2 and Minerva's Den, mind you) is always with me. The games remain.

I've got a slot for BioShock Infinite on my cabinet, right up next to the first entries in the series, for when I can get my hands on it. I won't adorn Infinite with a bunch of praise because, as we all well know, it hasn't earned any yet. And Irrational Games takes a lot of risks when making such heady games, so there is the chance it could crash and burn and drown in a giant pool of ambition.

But I will say this -- nothing kicks me in the gut like a BioShock trailer, and this new one does exactly what the others have: tugged at the small part of me which is elusive to all other video game experiences. And that gives me a measure of hope.
