I stopped caring about this series after the first game. Which I enjoyed thoroughly, at the time, but I don't think it holds up that well, and nothing about any of the others interested me. Wonder what they'll do with 4.

Dabbled back into the series with the release of the Bioshock Collection remasters for Playstation Plus.  It got me really interested again - the first was great all around, the second had more of the same (although arguably a shadow of the first), and Infinite was just great.  But more than anything, the environment and atmosphere still shine through and it made me want to play through all of them again. 

I'm interested in what comes next for sure.
