    BioShock Infinite is the history lesson gamers deserve

    [top]Made in America



    According to Google, "Boxer Rebellion", "Pinkerton" and "Wounded Knee" have been trendinglately. BioShock Infinite is teaching gamers about the American history that often evades classrooms, churches, and homes. After years at botched attempts at American commentary in games, either failed or cancelled, and much discussion in the academic crowd, Infinite finally delivers subtle, insightful, and fair commentary on America but it feels like no one is noticing.

    The internet doesn't need another editorial on BioShock Infinite's narrative, I can imagine you thinking upon seeing this article. I thought the same myself, until I realized that most writers are focusing on the violence of the player's actions or the science behind Columbia. On my second playthrough of Irrational's stellar first-person shooter, it became clear that these are only bookends and it's unfortunate that what comes between them isn't what is being focused on: America.
