I think BioShock deserves a solid spot on the "most overrated game stories of all time" list, but that's another discussion for another time. But even through writing BioShock seemed to be a case of "man has deep thoughts after reading Ayn Rand for the first time," the goofier, video game-y parts were actually much more interesting than the self-serious narrative on top. For instance, the big "Would You Kindly?" plot twist at the end serves to totally contradict what a video game is. After all, what makes games unique is the physical participation aspect. What if someone told you all the free will you throught you were exhibiting was a lie? Pretty wild stuff.
