Click to read.Tired of news about BioShock? We hear you. While our review is still baking in the oven, getting crispy on the edges, we came across a neat little factoid for all you fans of the old jest: \"My game is better than yours, ha, ha!\" For it appears that BioShock not only has become critically received as one of the best games of all time, not only this year. According to www.Gamerankings.com, BioShock has supplanted Resident Evil 4 in the #4 highest ranked game of all time, just below The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64), Soul Calibur (DC), and Metroid Prime (GC).

What does that mean? Game of the Year?

This is very high praise. It\'s very possible that BioShock will achieve that phantasmal award which gets pulled from the ether as if a white bunny from a hat. BioShock certainly deserves it.

However, on the IGN run Gamestats.com, it comes in at 16th.

What it means is that after years of hitting critical hits, but commercial flops, Irrational (2K Boston / 2K Australia) have finally received the critical and commercial success that every game studio wants. Kudos and congrats to Ken Levine and the crews at 2K Boston and 2K Australia. You\'ve made it, you\'ve finally made it.

On a side note, PAX had this massive statue of a Big Daddy present near the Microsoft Booth, as gamers played the game on both Xbox 360 and PC. In some pics it looks like he\'s drilling into one player\'s face. Cool.
