The uncanny similarities between the original BioShock and Infinite (gallery)

This article contains spoilers for BioShock Infinite.

The recently released BioShock Infinite reveals many possible realities through the tears that Elizabeth opens. We also learn that Columbia is only one of many worlds. Others lie beyond countless lighthouse doors.

It’s kind of beautiful, but these worlds and the people who inhabit them are parallels to each other. Some are good; some are bad. A million versions of Booker DeWitt exist in a million dimensions.

When you compare the cloud city Columbia to the underwater society of Rapture, you start to see all sorts of similarities. GamesBeat spotted a bunch and collected them in the gallery below. Did we miss any? Irrational Games developed both titles, so many different connections are possible.
