Saints Row IV vs Bioshock Infinite: The Illusion of Choice.

VGU writes "Could Saints Row IV really have as profound a message as Bioshock Infinite's hidden behind a wall of sex jokes and hyper violence?

On the surface the question seems fairly absurd. One is a beautifully crafted tale of redemption set in a floating city and the other lets you beat people around the head with a dildo bat, but hear me out here. Oh yeah for the record…

SPOILER ALERT! Do not read this unless you have completed Bioshock Infinite, Saints Row IV and watched the Matrix Trilogy…or if you just don’t care about spoilers that’s fine too." (BioShock: Infinite, Culture, PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360)

This is an interesting read, illusion in games when it comes to choice is always interesting.

Much like morale choices in Bioshock 1 and 2 when it came to saving and or killing the little sisters.

Comparing these games is a bold move...purple dildo.

Got the platinum for Infinite a few weeks ago. Definitely the biggest letdown of the year for me. I need to stop getting hyped for games. I should expect all games to be terrible, then they can surprise when they come out.

Bioshock always wins, end of story.

Infamous series is the worst when it comes to the illusion of choice.
Instead of forcing you to "make a choice" when the time came, the game should have asked you, "good or evil" right from the start.
