Where should the next Bioshock take place?
I was thinking space, but then I remembered that System Shock 2 (and probably 1, haven't played it) exists...
Honestly, I hope Irrational tries something other than a shooter next time, and that's coming from someone who thinks the combat part of Bioshock is the best part (well, almost).
I'll go with other. Bioshock is great, Bioshock 2 was pretty grand (With Minerva's Den being even better), Infinite was fantastic.
I think they should let it go there. Ken Levine and his creative team could probably move on to different things rather than reusing the same mechanics in a new shell. That being said I'll probably play whatever it is they make next, regardless.
Having beaten Infinite now I am of the mind now that there shouldn't be one especially now that they basically tied the first two games as being just another dimension with different variables in Booker's time line playing out.
Is that even true though? Consider 1980s France - is that another BioShock story, or just another unrelated dimension? I've been thinking about it, and maybe when Elizabeth talks about a Booker, a city, a lighthouse, a Songbird, and an Elizabeth all existing; she is actually referring to variations of the BioShock Infinite story (Comstock, Columbia, etc...), rather than both the BioShock and Binfinite stories. It's not to say they are irrelevant or what not, but maybe people are taking a leap of logic in referring to them as being a metaphor for all three BioShocks.
In an alternate 1990s UK. One where Maggie Thatcher was never ousted from power. And Ronald Reagan is her secret lover.
Pure gold Bioshock material.
You team up with a man who lost his family and livelihood through the mining debacle. Near the end of the game, you find out that he is actually President Nixon.
