To The Lighthouse - Bioshock vs Bioshock Infinite

BioShock Infinite is very much a BioShock game. That’s obvious from the title, of course. But the two games are more intrinsically linked than that. Characters, mechanics, and settings are all shimmering reflections off the same pool of water: the final image is slightly different, but both come from the same root picture. BioShock and BioShock Infinite are in a quantum entanglement, stemming from the same strand of DNA. As a result, they share many ideas.

In the first in this series of three articles, Lachlan Williams does his best to compare how the characters, and the themes that drive those characters, link BioShock with BioShock Infinite.

Oh, and naturally, these articles contain SPOILERS for BioShock Infinite (and BioShock the first, I guess), so do not read if you do not wish to be thoroughly spoiled. Ye have been warned. (BioShock, BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
