I read it twice to make sure I didn't miss it, but Ken never said "BioShock Rescued the Shooter".
"I can pretty much guarantee to you that if BioShock wasn't successful, there never would have been another game like this,"
Well of course not. If the game had flopped then they would have ripped it apart and said things like they "learned" from it and changed all "these" things and that's why this next game is so different and that's why we should all buy it. C'mon, this is nothing more than Marketing 101.
Now I enjoyed Bioshock, but it was no Deus Ex.
And the usual glut of "its all the fault of the consoles" comments still make me laugh.
