Help me make videos https://www.patreon.com/CharlatanWonder Everyone LOVES Bioshock Infinite's story... until you take a closer look at it and see that a lot of corners got cut and a lot of things just aren't up to snuff. Without going after the plot itself, let's pick apart the 7 to 10 hour long Disneyland Ride Bioshock Infinite is and compare it to the worlds we adventured into in Bioshock 1 and Bioshock 2. We'll cover everything from vigors and enemy interactions to tumblr and dudebros!
any support you can give me means a lot! https://www.patreon.com/CharlatanWonder Remember when everyone was going nuts about Bioshock Infinite and it's crazy ending? How about the scramble to make sense of it all and all the crazy Bioshock timelines that would make even a speedster flustered at the amount of tampering with the events of history in them. Bioshock Infinite's ending was a lot less than what we thought it to be; Irrational games was just really good at distracting us with Elizabeth and lots of flashing lights.

Also, SPOILERS (like duh, how could I get this into why Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea is terrible and not talk about spoiler-esq elements). Burial at Sea does a massive disservice to all things Bioshock and undoes in about 4 hours what took years to create. The stealth game play is bare bones and obviously borrowed, the fan-service moments are sloppy, and the story has about as much fluidity as tar. They do that thing where the ending gets all crazy and you need to have it all explained to you too.

Everyone loves Bioshock, and a lot of people think that Bioshock 2 doesn't get enough love. Well I think both of those statements are correct but that Bioshock 2 isn't without its major flaws that lead its game play, story, and the return to rapture as soon in Bioshock 2 to be looked down upon in comparison to the first game. Come with me as we take a look at why so many people ended up seeing Bioshock 2 as a disappointment instead of a worthy sequel.

Does anyone ever read this far? If you do, what kind of cooking recipes do you wanna see the next time I find myself doing a video on a game so dull that I need to supplement the video?

It should be a given with my original handle that I love, love, LOVE the Bioshock series. But while I love Bioshock infinite and think it was and excellent game, I can't deny that a lot of compromises were made to it in order to make it bio "Bioshock-y" which lead to the game losing out on a lot of luster. From handymen, to guns, to voxophones, Booker and Elizabeth's dynamic, and that whole "why are you scavenging when you're got a travelling partner who can literally pull ANYTHING out of thin air?" bit, let's explore where Bioshock Infinite went horribly wrong.
