The Real Problem With BioShock Infinite’s Box Art: Poor Trigger Finger Discipline

Kotaku: This weekend there was a big hoopla over BioShock Infinite's newly revealed box art. Fans complained that it was too standard and boring, and didn't even feature Elizabeth, the focal point of the game. Where's the beautiful sky city? Previous BioShock titles always had the iconic Big Daddy on the covers, what about Songbird? What on this box art even indicates just how unique a game we're bound to see next year?

But I spotted an entirely different problem on this particular box art. A recurring problem, it seems, when I dug a little deeper and compared BioShock Infinite's art with some other recent shooter box art.

It's all about that trigger finger. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

C'mon please he might of fired the weapon hence the flag is on fire but its box art it doesn't need to be perfect

Right, they obviously spend some decent money for a good artist on it, so why get it right? Actually while I don't think it's that big of a deal, I think it is more justified to write about it than it is to mock the people who write about it. 'C'mon, it's Kotaku, it doesn't have to be perfect'. Also nice: 'C'mon, it's just a game, the story doesn't have to make sense.' 'C'mon it's just an appendectomy, the resulting scar doesn't have to be pretty.'

If he just fired the weopon in a different position there would be no reason to still have the finger on the trigger. If he fired it in this position he would certainly be crawling on the floor in pain and disorientation, also he might be deaf on this ear from this point forward.

A retro poster look would be a thousand times better.

I think people are having a hard time understanding that this is a sarcastic/satirical article.

someone actually spent the time to write this up? what a joke.

I wonder what Ken thinks of all these people hating on the box art lol

Jesus, people it's a joke/satire. If it were submitted by anyone other than Kotaku you'd praise them for being clever and funny.

And it's true. That is not proper gun technique. You don't ever put your finger on the trigger unless you're firing.
