EXTREMELY UNPOPULAR OPINION INCOMING: Bioshock Infinite Is, in my opinion, the WORST game of all time. Let me explain: The look of Columbia is great, gunplay is fun, the powers are varied, the levels have a lot of interesting concepts; you've heard this all before. However, while the first Bioshock's political messages were relatively subtle, BI goes over the top with extremely ham-handed anti-religious messages, to the point of a developers obvious hatred of christianity getting shoved down the audience's throat. It stifles the narrative and spreads misinformation about the christian faith.

SPOILERS BELOW

THE SETTING
The protagonist/antagonist of Bioshock Infinite is one men by the name of Booker Dewitt/ Father Comstock. Booker is the player character, a hard-bitten ex-soldier being paid to rescue a girl named Elizabeth from her abusive father Comstock. Comstock is a fascist dictator of a city in the clouds named Columbia, a town that publicly humiliates mixed racial couples, beats black people to death, assassinates chinese shop owners. Comstock secretly has a plan to destroy the world below, wiping out the entire human race. Throughout the game, it becomes Booker's mission to save Elizabeth, defeat Father Comstock, and overturn the city's corrupt government.

THE MESSAGES
Throughout the game, pseudo-christian rhetoric is spouted non-stop by the enemies, calling Booker a "false shepherd" Elizabeth "the lamb", and Father Comstock "the savior". The words "Redemption" and "Righteousness" and other religious buzz-words are constantly shoe-horned into dialogue. There are also obvious parallels to the christian faith, with baptism being required to enter the city.

THE TWIST
The surprise twist near the finale of the game is that Booker Dewitt and Father Comstock are the same man. Not just clones, but the same person from slightly different timelines. There is only one defining event that changes our hero into a black-hating mass-murdering abusive psychopath. What is it? Christian baptism. Booker eventually travels back in time and lets himself be drowned, keeping both of himselves from existing. This hopefully will prevent the radical Christians from bombing the world.


THE MISINFORMATION

Unlike real baptism which is consensual and takes all of two seconds, this "baptism" in columbia is a violent near-drowning of an unwilling victim. Unlike the anti-white sentiment from Columbia's church, real christianity originated in the middle east among Arabs. Jesus himself was an Israeli that spent his younger years in Egypt, and the disciples were told to spread the gospel "to all people and all nations". As for the fiery apocalypse planned by Father Comstock, the bible repeatedly speaks against taking violence into your own hands, instead leaving justice to be delivered by God in the afterlife. "Vengeance is mine, I shall repay, saith the Lord."

THE CONCLUSION
Given that Booker and Comstock are exact replicas of each other with the singular differing variable being christianity, the game clearly states that christianity turns likable heroes into horrible villains. While other games (Dishonored, for example) have their own versions of an evil church, none are more explicit than Bioshock Infinite, using the name of Jesus specifically in the baptism flashback scene. This anti-christian sentiment is omnipresent in the city, and the developers successfully spread their anti-religious views onto thousands of players. Most of these players have no experience going to an actual church or meeting an actual priest, and so some assume that it must be reasonably accurate, despite being in a fictitious video game. However, the fact that BIoshock includes the name of Jesus makes it clear that this is not some fictitious religion from a fictional world, but it is supposed to represent real-like christianity.

TL:DR
All in all, while I enjoyed the moment-to-moment gameplay of Infinite, the constant political/religious voice lines and misrepresentation of the christian faith ultimately resulted in a disappointing game.

While those in the comments will be quick to call me "butthurt" "snowflake" "bigot" or some other title I'm used to, I request you address my actual issues with the games's messages, rather than attacking me directly. I hope this offered a bit of insight into my interpretation of Bioshock Infinite.
