Underwater shooter Bioshock is a lot of things--thought-provoking, blood-splattered, damp--but it's not sexy. And yet, according to the game's producer Ken Levine in his keynote Q&A session at the Brighton developer's conference.: “With BioShock we tried to make the most integrated porn movie of all time."

In a sense, we get it--porn movies often feature plots that are excuses to get to the "action scenes," just like games--but in another sense, we're not seeing it. While porn demands use of the fast-forward button, Bioshock is more about hitting "pause" and drinking in the scenery. Plus, the music in Bioshock is much better. Although some of those splicers were hot in a mutant kind of way.

On a more serious note, Levine partially credits the critical and sales success of Bioshock to a simple cause: Having enough time to make it great:

"We didn't get as much time as Blizzard does, but it was a lot more than we used to get," said Levine. "Time... Lets you stop drinking your own Kool-Aid, step back and see how things really are."
