I Just Played Bioshock Infinite

I just finished Bioshock Infinite, and you should have too.

I don't want to get too deep into it lest there be spoilers, but I'll say that the game has the music direction since Bastion and the best art direction since, well, Bioshock. The choice of setting the story in an early 20th century American Exceptionalism dystopia is really refreshing and makes me wonder how many other times and places in the planet's history are going underserved in modern media.

Also, any game that gets me to refresh my memory of the Boxer Rebellion and Wounded Knee (and not come off as pretentious in so doing) must be doing something right.
