Difference in adam from saving a little sister and harvesting one

#1 Posted by BigDaddyJack (11 posts) -

Does anyone know what the difference is betweent these two. I am going for the good ending but would like to know how much adam I would get if i harvested one of these little sisters

You get twice as much, but I believe in the end you can get just as many plasmids because the lady sends you gifts filled with adam and free plasmids

If I remember correctly, roughly twice more if you harvest them. Both endings are terrible in relation to what a great story the game weaves, so don't worry so much about the ending rather than enjoying the experience.

You get more in the long run if you save the little sisters. 

By harvesting the sisters, you get Adam frequently.  But if you save them, Langford will give you Adam bottles and different plasmids from time to time.

When you harvest them you get more ADAM (obviously)...I believe twice as much, but you oftentimes get gifts containing ADAM if you rescue them. But overall, harvesting them gets you more ADAM...just a not so happy ending.

For every 3 (I think) Little Sisters you save you will get a little bonus that basically means you get more for saving them, but you just have to wait for your reward instead of immediate gratification.

Yeah, there is a chart someone did for this somewhere, but essentially harvesting starts off strong and tapers off, whereas saving them starts off slow but finished strong.  The total sum is greater if you save the little sisters.

Harvest= 2x the ADAM than saving, but gives you bad ending
Save= You get half of the ADAM than harvesting, but you get the good ending.

Definitely save them. It may seem like you're getting less ADAM, but with the presents and plasmids you are given, it's really not that much less.

I'm with him. It doesn't matter because bother endings were bad.

They're not that bad. I wonder which ending they will go with for Bioshock 2.

I loved the good ending. I would never harvest the little sisters, so I watched the bad ending on youtube and I thought the bad ending was lame... But I thought the good ending fit really well into the story and thought it was a good wrap up to the game.
