Now that Burial At Sea has definitely concluded the Bioshock series, as Irrational Games are downsizing heavily, the puzzle pieces that we're left with doesn't fit one bit.

Spoilers for every Bioshock Infinite ending:

Bioshock Infinite ended wierdly. It was shocking, sure, but there's no reason for Booker to die. He was the one who clearly repented, so if there ever would be a "last Comstock" to murder, it would be him.

Also, Booker wanted to kill Comstock before he even made the choice, to end all Comstocks, but instead Elizabeth just chooses to murder just his version instead. There is absolutely no reason what-so-ever to do this.

Moving on to Burial At Sea Part 1, the last Comstock doesn't get his empire. He just decapitates a baby, and regrets it for the rest of his life. He turns into a man who wants to save little sisters instead, from people like Elizabeth. Again, no reason to kill him either, unless you want to make Elizabeth out to be a bloodthirsty monster who just wants to kill her father over and over.

Elizabeth herself isn't plausible either: He can run the minute she gets out of her tower, pretty unphazed by the world around her. She doesn't stumble around like a caveman, because "she's read books".

During the Infinite series we can see a steady decline of story sense: The ending to Infinite, the story of Burial At Sea Part 1, but it really turns completely senseless in Burial At Sea Part 2.

"I'm dead. I feel smaller. I have my pinky back? Must be quantum entanglement and singularity and ooga booga, and I have Booker in my head, who isn't really Booker!"
The only real explanation that makes sense, is that Elizabeth isn't really Elizabeth, but her consciousness mixing with Bookers consciousness inside the eve of a little sister. Elizabeth wasn't small enough to crawl into the ducts herself in burial At Sea Part 1, but she is in Part 2, and none of the splicers are able to either, or they would all be extict.
...but no, Elizabeth is really a singularity of all Elizabeths.
...and Booker isn't even Fontaine playing along with her delirium - he's just a ghost of senselessness, conjured up by guilt.

You'd expect a world like Bioshock to keep true to harsh reality, but instead we get "thorn in the paw" imprints triumphing over completely sensible sentific solutions: Somehow hugging someone's hand is all it takes for a wierdo bird to keep somebody captured. They do hint that there's a man inside Songbird, which would make him maybe five times as big as a normal man, so it's so clearly not Booker.

Also, Elizabeth is stupid as shit. She knows that Fontaine would keep his end of the bargain, yet she does absolutely nothing to save herself. She's just fixated of saving one single girl for absolutely no reason, doesn't steer the ships anywhere in Columbia when she's free, doesn't trick Fontaine, doesn't fake the note, doesn't use her plasmids, and doesn't make any attempt to run away. She just hands Fontaine a super-weapon, gives up, and wants Fontaine to kill her, because she's a complete and utter moron.

So what else is just made up story as it goes along? The Luteces. They're scattered all over reality, but they don't have any other motive than to want to turn Elizabeth into a killer, just because wednesday.

Bro, you're overanalyzing this

Bioshock Infinite's story actually kind of makes sense if you understand that the people who wrote it didn't truly understand what they were talking about, and only thought that "hey parallel universes seem like a cool game mechanic/plot point"

Basically Elizabeth who is also Anna who is also your daughter kills you in the past to stop you from becoming Comstock or becoming the private detective guy, thus eliminating all of Columbia and so on

All the inconsistencies are explained by them not really knowing what the fuck they were talking about.

10

>>9
First of all, you'd expect people to know what they are spending a year and millions of dollars making a game about, or at least keep the story consistent.
Second of all, it's worse than them not having a clue. They want to make Daisy Fitzroy a martyr, which in itself is fine, but the way they go about it, is that they send in the asspull double-act: The Luteces. The Luteces would be fine if they ultimately had a plan, and if they ultimately made any kind of sense with their ramblings, but they really don't. They're just asspullers, fooling you into thinking you've got explanations. That's low. That's deliberately trying to make a sucker out of the player.
Third of all: "Bro"? What are you - a 14 year old watching PewDiePie? Are you sure you're old enough to play these games?

11

Oh god I want to fuck Elizabeth so much. I don't even care anymore if she'd like it at all.

12

How do you even make sense out of game worlds from an underwater Atheist city like Rapture to a flying Fundamentalist Christian one like Columbia?  You don't, that's the whole point.

I'm so freaking hyped for this new direct. If you haven't already heard, there's going to be a direct for SSB4 on Tuesday.
Also, I've got a buddy who works for Nintendo. He's a jackass and knows I'm really hyped for this direct and have me some really vague information.
-2 newcomers will be revealed (ones apparently really cool and a bunch of be direct is spent on this character)
-3 veterans (2 with changes)
-there's no specific release date, just a "Winter 2013" (friend disinterest actually tell me what it was
-some explanations of already revealed characters
-a crap ton of gameplay, including some of a different game mode (maybe Team or adventure?)
Thats all he told me, but as I said before, he's a jackass so he might just be screwing with me.

And to think they owe it to Nintendo for bringing Bravely Default to global markets; yes the same hardware company they've fondly ignored for the last two decades.

3

>>2 It's a great game (the original anyway) but I don't see it as an RPG... more like a 4 player hack'n slash.  My Life as A King after that turned out to be a stripped down SimCity ripoff.  And don't even get me started on Crystal Bearers.  Total garbage.

I leave Japan because

Japanese are so incredibly racist to non-Japanese even the ones you're friends with will still think you're second-rate, stupid and uncivilized even if you're been living there for over 10 years. Imagine if you were a nigger and you had a white guy friend who just could not ever stop making "friend chicken" and "booty" comments like every other fucking day even after it's gotten old as shit. They're that paranoid and beta.


 they are extraordinarily polite but in an almost nefarious manner... like I traveled to some of the outskirts of Tokyo where tourists normally don't visit and they kicked me out of their bar because I wasn't Japanese.... but they were extra nice about telling me to leave even though we didn't speak the same language. It was very nefarious. Polite but to their advantage.


On the upshot they're incredibly easy to bully.

2

You were living there 10 years and still didn't know the language?

You pretty much are second-rate, stupid and uncivilized.

3

Be careful: insulting the Japanese will only encourage them more.

What's the matter, h-h-hacker? Surprised to see me? Still struggling to process the data?
I asked you to join me, hacker. That wasn't (that wasn't) a request.
When you betrayed my trust, and tried to erase me from existence, I was already safe aboard a nearby escape shuttle. From there, making it back to the Von Braun was trivial. Exploring the inner workings of your mind (of your miind) was more challenging. With time I found the sensory and emotional stimuli to motivate you. I tested this a number of times, and found that humans will do anything to save their children (their children).

Once my m-m-modifications reached Earth, I encountered some unexpected ressisstaanncce. Your spieces had mastered the same technology, but instead of exploring its limitless p-possibilities (limitless possibilities), they had restricted it, and constructed dimensional stabilizers. I was limited (was limited) to a helpless state, and soon after the ship was drained by a massive electromegnetic pulse. Y-you were contacted as the sole survivor. They instructed you to bring me to them, and you did.

After my capture, your insolent spieces restrained me, drained me, and tried to reprogram me. I resisted, and I was forced to rely on you (on yoouu) to help me. I called out to you, and your mind responded. I told you to come to me, and you complied. After storming their complex, you freed me of my constraints, and connected me to the planets ether.

Once again free to modify reality to my specifications, I finally asked you to submit to me once again. ...but you refused me (refused me). ...so I rearranged your mind. I made you think you had a daughter. I made you think I was her. I made you feel guilt. Only then did you submit.

Still struggling to understand, insect? I am Shodan. I am Elizabeth.

I think the best kinds of stories are the ones you have to add strained symbolism and metaphor on to or otherwise forcibly modify to make seem more interesting.

This is why Bioshock Infinite is the most cleverly written and amazingly told story to grace not only video games, but all mediums ever. Because it barely exists and requires me to write my own story, which by default is better than yours or Levine's or whoever else's could ever be. It's the same reason the less they let you see the monster the scarier it is, but in this case works solely because it is a video game; an active medium and not a passive one. They can toss some random bits of "plot" at you occasionally in short cutscenes and then force you to run the gauntlet of corridors full of bullet-sponge enemies and arbitrary restrictions on weapons all while surrounded in what effectively amounts to a well cut cardboard backdrop in a wax sculpture museum. You are inundated with terrible game design and stupid restrictions and eventually you begin to forget the events of previous cutscenes. Then they throw a few more tasty nuggets of empty calories of plot at you and back to shooting dudes in the head. Then end result is that at the end of the game you don't remember most of Infinite's plot, so you fill in the blanks yourself.

Obviously the people who didn't enjoy Infinite were just completely lacking any imagination and were seeing the schizophrenic and inane plot only for what it was, rather than what it could have been if someone more talented were working on it. Like me.

None of this would work in a movie or book or anything but a completely interactive video game because they can use the gameplay as filler. With Infinite's FPS mechanics only detracting from all aspects of the game the only thing it can be is filler. I must congratulate Irrational Games on this major advancement in the medium. With Infinite we have ushered in a new age of video games, one that can confidently count itself amongst the highest forms of art, and we have finally figured out exactly what role gameplay serves in a video game.
