Girlfriend Review: BioShock and BioShock: Infinite

To read my latest video game review, visit here

For those of you who don’t know about the Girlfriend Review… My boyfriend is a gamer. He is a writer/podcaster for He plays a lot of video games while I write or read or play Flow on my iPad. I catch most of the game play, but I don’t pay a lot of attention to it. After he beats the game, I write a review based on what I saw of the game. So it’s basically a review by someone who hasn’t personally experienced the game. I would equate it to someone reviewing a movie based on the script alone, without having seen the film itself.

Gamer’s Girlfriend

“Gamer’s Girlfriend” isn’t just the title of a screenplay I’m writing. I actually am the girlfriend of a gamer. And my gamer boyfriend, who is a contributor to, asked me to write a segment called “Girlfriend Reviews”, where I gives my thoughts and reactions to a game from a different perspective.

I have played video games in the past, but I am not a gamer. I don’t understand the difference between PlayStation and Xbox (except they’re made by different companies and have some exclusive games that aren’t available on the other console. So my bf wants me to write reviews of the games based on me watching him play. It’s kind of like Mystery Science Theater 3000, now that I think about it a little…

Anyway, my first review is on the new Tomb Raider, which came out last week and which the bf beat last night. I’m going to link to it in this post when it’s live. Please visit the site. Comment on the story if you feel compelled to. And if you play video games, let me know what you think about it!

EDIT: here’s the link!
