BioShock Infinite ending explained

Eurogamer: "Like a ride on one of its soaring skylines, the latter half of BioShock Infinite's narrative is a twisted and breath-taking race through the city of Columbia and beyond, moving on to expand the series' scope to a dizzying scale." (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

The ending to this game kind of ruined the ending for the other 2 games in a way. It added on to it but it was just too much.

how? this game has nothing to do with the other two...

It actually does tie into the original. The explanation is just a bit convoluted

I'm confused by how even "our Booker" is baptized right in the beginning in order to enter Columbia...

Well, he had no choice but to do it or the priest, i assume, wouldnt allow him to pass through. Initially Booker was willing but you see him not wanting to go through with it. I hope this helps, my way of seeing it of course.
Eyesoftheraven  +   780d ago
Sure, but I was under the impression that baptism is what leads him to becoming Comstock.
r21  +   780d ago
That Booker was the one who accepted baptism and because of that, he became a religious nut that is Comstock. You see the Booker that we play as is the one who denies religion as a real way of forgiveness for what he did in the past. The Booker that did accept it is the Booker we are secretly fighting against, that is Comstock.

The Booker who denies leaves his timeline and enters the Booker who accepts religion's timeline.

Yeah, its pretty confusing stuff. Head on to: www.reddit.com/r/Bioshock

A good site to help you understand more :D

surely everyone in columbia would have noticed the AD false shepherd mark on his hand when he was made unconscious by the priest and taken to the garden of eden and it would have stopped many policeman from being killed. Columbias's security was awful if one stray man can suddenly walk in from probably years of not seeing any new comers.

That too! The intro in that regard especially was really peculiar to me.

Spoilers@@@@@

Why does the ending need to be explained?

It was himself the whole time and she and other 'hers' from different tears drowned and killed him.

Pretty simple to me?

SPOILER AHEAD

If you don't look too closely then it may seem fine, but there are all kinds of issues if you start to think about it.

But that is inevitable, time/inter-dimensional travel is bound to introduce paradoxes that can not be explained.

'If you don't look too closely then it may seem fine, but there are all kinds of issues if you start to think about it.'

Thats with most games though. I rather not think too much about it or else ill be finding, if not already, a whole bunch of loopholes within the plot.

Lol, I understood less then half of what they mentioned on my own in 2 walkthroughs. I'm sucks at english. I guess i will need the english class.

I also agree with BlindGuardian a little bit. This could have been a great sad ending but making it complicated made more interested on finding out what's going on instead of try to feel what the character dealing with..

How ever, This game is a 9/10 for me because it was fun, i even platinum the game ^^ . We need more games like this that makes us think not just watch the story..

@kreate
It's not only about that. Did you read the article ?..

Sooooooooo, what was the need for this bit...

Why did he feel the need to call out "ANNA!? Anna!? Is that you?" to make sure she's there???

Even if the those universes don't exist ANYMORE. Something tells me he remembers Columbia. Wonder if Anna will too. :D

Sorta reminds me of the ending to Stein;s Gate. Retaining memories of universes that EXISTS OR EXISTED.
r21  +   780d ago
I assume its to give players an open ended scene. Is Anna there or is she not? Like that scene at the end or the top spinning in Inception. The developers doesnt seem to stop mind screwing, it seems.

I don't care whatever people say, this game is RIDICULOUSLY over rated.
