3. Bioshock Infinite
Bioshock Infinite takes place in the skies in the flying city of Columbia, far from the depths of Rapture. In the game, players take on the role of a former Pinkerton agent and gun-for-hire who lends his services to the rescue of a certain Elizabeth, a mysterious young woman with the ability to alter reality.
Like the original Bioshock, Infinite intends to offer a cerebral experience rather than one grounded in simply shooting people up. Jingoism, racism, and American Exceptionalism are strong, overlying themes this time around. Given the recent upsurge in popularity of movements like the Tea Party Movement, the game may well serve as a critique of modern American society, with these agendas taken to their most extreme.
