** From the ride down to the city in the bathysphere, the film starts with an ad: "Fire at your fingertips!", for the incinerate plasmid. That was how [[Creator/AynRand Dagny]] [[Literature/AtlasShrugged Taggart]] described cigarettes. And the ad shows a man lighting a cigarette for a woman who looks very much like a young AynRand.

* NoiselessWalker: The Wrench Lurker tonic has this effect, as it completely silences your footsteps, no matter whether you're walking, crouching or running full tilt. It also increases the [[WrenchWhack wrench]]'s [[BackStab damage to unaware targets]].

** The Rapture of Sophia Lamb is presented as the ultimate collective not too dissimilar to late-stage communism. Yet in the end, Lamb herself proves to be as selfish and self-centered as Ryan was.

Added DiffLines:

* CompilationRerelease: ''[=BioShock=]: The Collection'' consists of all three games and their DLC in a single package. In the case of the physical release, the first two games are in a single disc, while ''Infinite'' gets its own separate disc instead.

Added DiffLines:

* ConceptsAreCheap: The Bioshock games are against extremism and utopias but never quite defines coherently what particular ideas are utopian in relation to, or what ideas are extreme in relation with, mostly because it categorizes extremism as a separate notion rather than a point in a particular spectrum.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: The idea to creating an undersea city isn't too far fetched, and there are in fact underwater hotels. In fact, the tech has been around for quite a while. As for Rapture and Columbia, there's been an idea to combine the two, basically traveling ocean countries that goes via Libertarian principles, such as Laissez-faire.

** Also building an objectivist (or in this case Libertarian) haven in the middle of the ocean has been attempted before with micronation of Minerva. Minerva was a plan to build a city on top of the Minerva reefs, which may or may not be in international waters. Before the project got under way it was shut down by Fiji who claims the reefs as their own.

** Also noteworthy is the fact that the design for the Splicers in Bioshock 1 and 2 was based on the real life work of Dr. Harold Gillies, a post UsefulNotes/WW1 surgeon who practiced many surgeries on disfigured veterans. His intentions were to make them feel less ostracized by society, to do so he created a face from the remaining tissue as well as prosthetics. His work was revolutionary for his time, getting him hailed as "the father of plastic surgery." However, his works seem pretty primitive and borderline macabre now. A gallery is available but fair warning; it's fairly Squick-y [[http://gilliesarchives.org.uk/pcofweek.htm]]
