Dissecting the narrative of BioShock Infinite

Casually Addicted's Justin Levenstein takes an in-depth look at BioShock Infinite's riveting narrative.

"Having just recently finished Bioshock Infinite for a third time, I think it goes without saying that I’m a big fan of this game. A game hasn’t resonated with me this much in quite some time, so I felt compelled to write about it. After coming to understand most of Bioshock Infinite’s mind-bending conclusion, I found myself struggling to wrap my mind around the meaning of what I now consider to be the most profound piece of dialogue in the entire game, delivered by Elizabeth (or as we soon discover, Anna): “There’s always a lighthouse, there’s always a man, there’s always a city.” As I began to search for meaning behind these words, I came to the conclusion that their significance encapsulated much more than the Columbia, the city in the sky, and Rapture, the dystopian empire under the sea." (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
