I'm kind of curious about something. I haven't played any of the Bioshock games, but the previous installments all had that huge robot thing and the little girl. They also looked like they were set in the future. This one looks like it takes place during the civil war. What's up with that?

Nah, not really the future but more of a steampunk setting. Bioshock 1 and 2 are set in the 1950's in a high-tec underwater city.
Bioshock infinite on the other hand, is more of a prequel to the original Bioshocks and takes place during the early 20th century.

All of these games were really good games, but however, I feel the story in Bioshock Infinite is sort of confusing and mind boggling, with all that time travelling and dimension stuff... Hurts my brain trying to figure that whole darn thing out, even argued with my friend for an hour just to justify how the whole story is.

Character wise, my favourite is Subject Delta from bioshock 2. Reason being he's a big daddy. Period.

Uh... But for Bioshock Infinite, I like the Songbird alot, reminds me of the bad@ss big daddies in the old bioshock series. Really loved the series because of these dudes.

Yeah, the first two seemed to be related... Then they pull all of this other crap into the series. I was actually going to buy Bioshock Infinite and jump clear into the series, but now it sounds like I ought to go back and play the first two. Thanks.

First game took place in an underwater city, second game was a milking the series game made by another developer. Third game went back to its awesome original developers and they created an actually amazing game.

Not a prequel. The games may or may not take place in the same universe, but their stories are almost completely unrelated.

The only reason I would suggest playing the previous ones first is that they heavily improve on gameplay, so if you play the third first, then my might find the first game a bit boring in terms of game play. You can play the stories any order you like. Also, if you are short on money, just skip the second game.

True... Both have relatively different stories, but all of them are from the same world/universe/multiverse thing...

You even get to visit Rapture in Bioshock Infinite... But that might be in another time-rift Elizabeth created. Not sure if anything from the game has anything to do with the early Bioshocks. Sides, I kind of agree with you that this is not a sequel, but more of a spin-off but in an earlier era...

Heck, I keep on joking the System shock series is the future of the Bioshock series!

Yes, it may take place in the same multiverse, but the event in both games have nothing to do with each other (other than the small scene with rapture in infinite).

Spoilers obviously

Rapture is actually in a different timeline, so it's probably just a variable. This is proved by Voxophones where Fink explains he got all his ideas from seeing tears of Rapture.

But yeah, they take place in the same universe.

Finally got to play the game on PS3.

I liked it. It was pretty cool.

I even got the original Bioshock for free along with a copy of Infinite, so I'm playing it right now.

And I got to hear Fortunate Son in the game! I love that song! One of the many good Vietnam War-era songs.
