I almost made my post here about Infinite, because I know this community ranks it somewhere between Sonic 2006 and the Zelda CD-i games, and I’m… ah… one of those tasteless people who still really like it.
I agree that its politics are on the whole pretty shitty, and it’s definitely reasonable for people to dislike it because of that, but I think its art direction is top-notch and its atmosphere and worldbuilding are incredibly good (Comstock House in particular sticks in my mind). Its story is absurd but it’s absurd in an off-the-wall sci-fi way that I quite enjoy, and it’s one of only two games I’ve ever played that have made a glorified escort mission a legitimately enjoyable experience (the other being Ico). Perhaps more controversially, I think its commentary on organized religion is more nuanced than it’s given credit for, but it has been a while since I’ve played it so maybe my memory is inflating something that wasn’t really there.
That’s not to say it hasn’t been outdone since—things like SOMA and Wolfenstein: TNO have definitely done more justice by a lot of Infinite’s core ideas, but not enough to make me as down on the game as a lot of other people seem to be.
