Bit-Picking: Tearing through the Machine Age in BioShock Infinite

David Chandler returns to his series on close readings of video games, this time looking at BioShock Infinite and its early twentieth century influences. He writes, "In conjunction with its historical setting, Infinite asks to be considered as a reflection of its own time, and to some degree, its own presence as technology that has deep roots in the history of the machine. It asks the player to re-think his/her perceptions of both time and space as they exist in digital worlds, and by extension, our own." (BioShock: Infinite, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
