Defending Bioshock Infinite’s Violence

Jonas Jurgens, Thunderbolt writes:
There’s been a lot of talk about Bioshock Infinite in the last few weeks, and one of the key points addressed has been how it deals with violence. There’s a lot of violence in Infinite and it’s damn brutal. As a whole, it does have some issues with story and gameplay being a bit incongruent, as they’re mostly separated. Usually, you’ll have a somewhat lengthy combat section where the story doesn’t really progress, followed by some extended exploration of Columbia. However, it doesn’t suffer what’s commonly known as ludonarrative dissonance. Unlike in many games featuring adult content, the violence makes sense. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I still prefer the first Bioshock. And the violence was just as bad I believe.
