How BioShock Infinite ripped off one of the greatest games of all time and nobody noticed

Yesterday, 2K was proud to release BioShock Infinite, the spiritual successor to BioShock and BioShock 2. A grand departure from the underwater adventures inspired by Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, Infinite takes place on another monument of man’s arrogance, but this time floating amidst the clouds.

The premise of Infinite sounds all too familiar, however.

I think the guys post on the site says it all:

something something conspiracy something something Half-Life 3 something something dark side

It's actually not too far-fetched.... well maybe a bit.

Hey, that was my comment! :D

This explains Everything.

This is going to get flamed hard lol. I actually found a original, never played Chrono trigger in the attic. they sell for 500 on ebay! Christmas came early!

Wow. I am one of the biggest Chrono Trigger fans you can find, but this article is just ridiculous. What makes Columbia unique isn't the fact that it's a floating city at all, it's the atmosphere of the city and the transportation method the game uses.

Name another game with something like the Sky Hook system and get back to me.

I'm a huge fan of Chrono Trigger too, and while I don't think the that BI ripped off of CT, there are some interesting parallels between Zeal and Columbia.

I knew i recognized the design from somewhere. Here it is folks. Why credit wasn't given is beyond me. They played it off smooth by making everyone believe it was original.

As long as they add enough freshness to it and make it their own unique thing then it's ok.

Chrono Trigger was apart of all that Time Travel stuff going on in games in the 1990's...

There are like 30 time travel RPG's.

Everything has been ripped off by someone. Cmon? Did u want them to actually give credit. They were all reading a book about the worlds fair at the turn of the century. Rapture proved the philosophical nature of Levine's story. Is it possible they got the idea of a floating city and decided to make it fit in? Sure. But all ideas come from somewhere.

See I just ripped ^ this ^ guy off... just changed "somewhere" to "someplace."
