A look at the end of Bioshock Infinite and what it all meant.
Why is the title in question form?
I kinda don't get why there are so many articles talking about the ending and what it all meant and making sense of it or whatever. I thought it was a incredible ending and it was pretty straight forward what it meant and what was implied. Maybe I just think I know what it means but even if I'm wrong it's still a great ending. A ending people can get different things from and be content with is a hard thing to achieve and Infinite did it.
Spolier!!! First, the ending can be quite complex. Also, its hard to know for sure whether the paradox forced the universe to eliminate all other possibilites other than booker living with baby Anna (which has its own issues...did the even eliminate gambling debts etc.) Or whether the ending just flipped him back into the never broken circle and it just starts all over. These choices in themselves offer to us the idea of a constant vs. Hope. Anyway, what really blew my mind was this. It becomes obvious that Booker hasmade this trek we r on many, many times. I actually like to think that the vigors were added at some point to help him. But, with the #77, the heads coin flipping we know that some things r constants and will never change. But its crazy to think that booker couldn't do it with elizabeths help, the twins help or the vigors. What he needed was our help, the gamer. It isn't until we get involved that he is able to push through to the end. Yeah, I could go on and on. I hav thought about this ending so much today its hurting my mind. Now, to start 2nd playthrough.
