Perhaps wait until a game is actually out and we know the full story before throwing it on the cross.

That's nice. Did you remember to wear your helmet today? We don't want you to accidentally injure yourself.

Just hang on to your Bible in one hand, and your AR-15 in the other. It'll be OK.

Right like kids don't play M rated games

Even better: Parents, if you're letting your children play a game that is rated for Mature individuals, please ensure that they are, in fact, mature enough to handle and understand the subject matter being shown to them.

Dude, it's a game. Most kids these day's don't know anything about the constitution anyway.

I see what you did there.

Also parents, please explain to your kids the risks of ziplining through a mythical city in the clouds. The pitfalls of chasing after a girl who is guarded be a steampunk mechanical George Washington and the dangers of firearms and plasmids.

How DARE any form of media attempt to push the envelope and present an alternate view of the world? The nerve!!! Doesn't Ken Levine know that everything has to fit inside a small box so that it's "safe" for everyone??? Gah!

Awesome. I wish this was totally true instead of three-quarters made up.

Any self respecting parent would research a M rated game before they bought it for their children.

Because you just kinda made it up. If you didn't, there'd be sources.

Im not sure Ken Levine's brain is oversized. His head looks mostly normal.

Christian [zealots] parents who don't wish free thought upon their children be warned.

I will educate my kids on all the facts of Christianity. Like how they brainwash children from a very early age, and how they are all a bunch of hypocrites. I will use your idiotic post as a prime example.

I have some Christian beliefs (keyword being "some," because I do believe in gay marriage) and I'm a defender of the Constitution, but I'm super excited for Infinite.

FYI: Bioshock 2's villain Lamb was more of a leftist, so these games don't really take sides.

Agreed!

"Parents, if your kids play this game, please educate them on the misconceptions this game may present to them."

.....or just educate them in general to allow them to make up their own minds as opposed to pre-emptively indoctrinating them.

That way you are more likely to raise a person capable of critical thinking as opposed to a mindless drone who needs to have their ideas spoon-fed to them.

Would you kindly open your mind to alternative views so your children can make decisions for themselves. Thanks pumpkin.
