Why One Player Demanded a Refund For Bioshock: Infinite

Forbes - The second scene of Bisohock: Infinite is one of the most disorienting and visually arresting moments in the game. We’ve just been blasted into the sky from a lighthouse in the middle of the sea. We’re in a church where a thin layer of water covers the ground, reflecting hundreds of flickering candles. White robed figures walk through long aisles. It’s our introduction to Columbia, a land something like our own but also wholly different. And it’s where one player decided he couldn’t keep going with the game.

The story is too old to be commented.

i heard about this from review tech usa,and i think this is just pure stupidity,and sensitivity.

Once again the issues with religious fanatics rears its ugly head.

Conzul1949d ago

Um....Infinite is about religious fanaticism. In part.

MikeMyers1949d ago

Which is likely to get even more backlash from religious fanatics.

This is the same person from the article from earlier correct? I'm just hoping there was this one irrational person and not two.

No....you really don't. The PC doesn't have to care any more about the 'setting' of this game...because Booker only cares so much about it. It is not important in the end. In the end what was important was Elizabeth, Booker and Comstock. The rest of it is just a very interesting setting and plot elements. Everything in the game revolves around Elizabeth's powers. The story changes multiple times in the story.

Again, if people will let themselves get offended by a video game which portrays religious madness which happens in the real world...just go away. Never mind the fact that the Christianity isn't even present in the game except for 2 or 3 sequences involving baptism and Comstock's stealing of Baptism.(start of the game)

This game is entertainment, if they are going to use Racism and Religion...that is fine. It does not have to 'address' anything properly. They are at face value because that's how stupid Racism and 'cult' attitudes are. Just stupid. They are delicate area's which the 21st Century are supposed to have moved on from. Not carefully threading waters around such topics from very real and idiotic perspectives. Ie: If you want to join a cult...go ahead and be stupid, if you want to be a racist, go ahead and close your mind to your retarded beliefs.

It honestly makes me wonder what kind of games this guy is actually able to play without becoming offended.

He's a Christian and complains he had to go through a Baptism before he could shoot people ... How can you apply morality to one thing and then ignore it for another? He doesn't mind murder as long as he can do it as a Christian. It's odd that the most 'Christian' minded people I've ever met were atheists.

Disappointments and offense are everywhere. I hated the ending of the last Starship Troopoers movie because of its Christian themes, and so it left me incredibly offended.

However, it probably left others incredibly happy. I can't just go asking for a refund when something offends me, as I could have asked around and done my research first. Not only that, but diverse opinion should be respected, even if it offends you to extremes.
True art will always be divisive.
