'BioShock Infinite:' 10 New Things That Change The Game | Complex

Complex: "In many ways, it's a throwback to the original BioShock. Somehow that doesn't make it feel stale, even after BioShock 2 came out as essentially a retread of the by then familiar underwater city of Rapture.

"But for every way that BioShock Infinite references the original, there are three in which it deviates. So we thought it might be helpful to compile ten changes in BioShock Infinite that are literally going to change the game." (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

What!? Bio shock didn't feature mature themes? It was basically an essay on atlas shrugged and examined capitalism, free venture and objectivism. Not only this is a well understand point to the game but it was so heavily built upon in bio shock 2 with the even more obvious commentary on socialism that it should be freaking obvious to anyone writing the article. It almost raises the question of whether the author even bloody played the original.

Yeah, all of the games dealt with real-world mature themes involving religion and society as a whole. Not sure how he came to that conclusion.

But that's all philosophical and to a certain extent hypothetical. As in, "What would happen if there was a society based on these principles?" Mature, yes. Realistic? No. Racism is a different story, though, and it feels more authentic and grounded (ironic since Columbia is in the sky). That's what I was thinking, at least.

I think capitalism and communism have some real life relevance... I mean from the Cuban missile crisis to the various revolutions through out the world I struggle to see how it's not relevant.

"What would happen if there was a society based on these principles?"

I'm trying to remain understanding of you're point of view but it's difficult when you've asked that question. It's so bad I've had to come back to comment on it even though I didn't really care. I can't find where you're from but if you're American then please just... read a History book or something because there is a place built on objectivist philosophies. It's the USA and its whole damn political system is built on the dichotomy of left and right. And as for another small and insignificant nation that's built on Socialist philosophies there's Russia.

The closest sentiment I can feel is that Racism will be more accessible to the..err.. less well-read folk because most people shy away from politics and philosophy like monkeys from fire.

I had a response for you, but I had to delete it because there simply are no words.
