The 8 Dumbest Things About BioShock Infinite

IGN - BioShock Infinite's superbly crafted city of Columbia - rife with expertly written characters and one of the most intricately woven stories this medium has ever seen - is a place of sheer genius. Except for when it makes no sense. Here are the eight stupidest things we noticed while playing the otherwise brilliant BioShock Infinite that stuck out like missing pinky fingers. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

The only thing dumb here is this article...

Maybe it is all just memories of Bookers trip? Or the twins did everything to help him. By the 123rd trip, shit got really crazy...lol

It's not really an article, just satire.
Conzul  +   959d ago
I love everything about Bioshock Infinite, but this article is spot on. That stuff was pretty dumb. But it's lighthearted, ya know? They gave it a 9.4 already, there's no way they're gonna start bashing it.

Haha right? I actually thought those images were pretty humorous, particularly because some of them had never even occurred to me.

I thought this piece was bad and stupid because it just doesn't make sense...

1)ok, fine
2)ok, fine
3)ennemies use powers to
4)what does a flying city have to do with paying for hot dogs?
5)there are no crows in vending machines
6)yes, that's one of the themes of the game...
7)the cita is not made out of baloons
8) booker isn't always on fire...

I'm not saying I refuse any criticism on BSI, I criticize it quite a lot myself. But if you're trying to make a joke, it should have at least some sense to it.

The game has received way too much praise, to be honest, when it suffers from some real flaws. It's good to poke fun, even if you love the game.

Besides, I already played Bioshock 3. It was called "Dishonored". Bioshock Infinite feels like a spin-off in comparison.

I don't think we played the same game. Bioshock Infinite completely dominated Dishonored in terms of story and quality. Dishonored actually felt like pre-Infinite.
Hydralysk  +   959d ago
Dishonored was Bioshock Infinite if it focused on the mechanics instead of the story.

Dishonored's gameplay was great, but it's story was pretty forgettable. Infinte's story was great, but it's gameplay was pretty forgettable.

I was disappointed with Infinite, the game was good, the story excellent... but for what ever reason I didn't care for the cast of characters like I did the Bioshock the 1st. I will certainly try out Dishonored after reading your comment though :D

The only thing that I would nitpick about the game are the moments when Elizabeth reacts to corpses with horror and disgust. But then, a second later she is leaning on a desk right next to the body like it's nothing at all. That did kind of took me out of the experience a little bit. Aside from that though the game is great and I loved every minute of it.

Not only this article is lame, but it's also mostly inaccurate.
brodychet  +   959d ago
Fishing for hits. Save your time people, just pictures of the game with lame captions.

For example: Picture of Elizabeth (Hates when you kill people, gives you ammo) --- Even though she accepts the fact that you kill people after the first combat encounter '^'

And that it's not built on balloons (well, it is, but that's not how the city floats).
RedSoakedSponge  +   959d ago
im not saying youre wrong in the slightest or anything, but why are they there then? :/ confusing lol

"..The most prominent of these technologies is the system of quantum mechanics that allows Columbia to remain aloft. Although most buildings feature balloons, propellers, and reactors, these devices are only ancillary to Columbia's flight. Rosalind Lutece discovered a method of indefinitely suspending atomic particles in mid-air, the "Lutece Field", which her colleagues lauded as "quantum levitation". Lutece reasoned that if an atom could be suspended, larger objects such as buildings could as well. Columbia is the end result of Lutece's work...."

"And yes, we know it's a video game at the end of the day. Relax and have some fun". Did anybody read the article and not just look at the pics, chill people, its just a fun article lol, found it quite funny lol and yes I enjoyed the game

I'll agree somewhat with the superpower bit.
dmN_114  +   958d ago
Before more people hop into this "trap"...It's just for fun even tho abit stupid and aimed for some clicks I guess.

[That superpower bit is really somewhat true since most enemies just have guns...]
EditorAtGNG  +   958d ago
Some of these are just plain stupid. I guess the author was gunning for a funny sort of article but I don't think it is THAT funny.
smashcrashbash  +   958d ago
Okay first of all he wasn't the only person who used the powers.Remember people also used fire as well, the crows and the guy you toke the electric power from used it as well.Also the corpses are of people that were once alive and walking around so I am not sure why they wouldn't have fresh food or anything in their pockets? Who says they were dead for any length of time? Also Elizabeth didn't like what he was doing but does that mean she is stupid enough not to know that he was her only way out.So why wouldn't you help the person in any way you can to freedom especially since she was much more frightened of being dragged back to the tower. The perfect paradise if you are white just hearkens back to all types of slavery where the cities and monuments were built on the backs of others so people could live in luxury.Why do you think the Vox Populi were revolting? If you are going to be funny at least TRY to be clever too.

This is one hell of an overrated game
Lvl_up_gamer  +   958d ago
I agree.

Bioshock 1 was much much better.
Bumpmapping  +   958d ago
Boring gameplay just shoot....shoot and shoot! Good story and characters didn't do anything we haven't seen before.
