Ken Levine was inspired greatly by Half Life when creating Bioshock, it was a fantastic, original game, it was such a shame that the second one, while solid, re-used too much of what made the original good.

The next one looks particularly interesting, the whole concept behind it (a Freudian beauty and the beast love story mixed with a detective tale) looks incredibly detailed. The setting is not in Rapture either, rather a floating city, and the backstory behind that city looks really interesting.
