1. I am

If I were to pick up only one game next year, this would be it.

2. I have not played the Bioshock games.

Are they action horror? I watched a few minutes of the second video, and it looked a little creepy.

Are RPG elements present?

Open world? Side quests?

3. I've onlyplayed the first

but it was a good game, I'd certainly recommend it. It did have some horror elements, genetic experiments gone wrong, all in a crumbling Randian utopia underwater. What's not to like? More than straight horror, I think "creepy" describes it much better. Incidentally it's on sale on Steam today for 75% off.

It's in the same vein of the old System Shock games, if you know those.

Can't tell you anything about Bioshock 2, never played it; the story just doesn't quite "click" with me.

There are some RPG elements, in that you can acquire tonics that give you certain special abilites. The game as a whole is linear, you move from one area of the city to another, and you have to remove certain obstacles before being able to move on. I think you can travel back to places you already visited though (although my memory is a bit cloudy), although I don't remember there being any benefit to it.

4. Looks great.

Haven't watched all the preview vids yet because I try to stay away from spoilers, but it certainly promises to be a great game. Can't wait.
