Firstly, I have never played a Bioshock game because they looked weird. Weird zombie children with glowing eyes don't appeal to me all that much. I'm sure everyone is sure to correct me but that is my impression of the game. This one looked somewhat less weird, but still. From what I can tell it's some weird twisted version of history where America is all evil assholes. This has led me to not care for this unless someone can explain what Bioshock is. I'm just so confused. :confused:

That isn't the current version? I kid.

To truly appreciate it. You must play. :)

Bioshock 1 & 2 have a lot of conflicting philosophies at play, leading to a utopia gone wrong. And Big Daddy fights are just awesome.

The historical significance surrounding Bioshock Infinite's story in particular is separate from B1 & 2 and will make more sense if you're familiar with American history around the period ending the 19th century leading towards WWI. The USA had just spanked Spain in an imperialism war in 1898 and was high on being a new top dog on the world stage.

it's all about utopian dreams gone horribly wrong. the reason for the children is that there were no ethics restricting medical experiments on helpless children.

Well, you have to go out now and get them! They're great! I think the first one was more epic, but the second one is pretty damn awesome as well! Seeing is believing, in this case!
