Would you re-play this game again, if...

...it had a happier ending or resolution?

I've been curious about what would make me re-play this game. Because, for me personally. I can't find a satisfying enough reason to want to play this game again anytime soon, unless it was to try and clarify some of the points. The combat/gameplay was good, but not enough to make me replay the entire game. There were barely any side-quests or puzzles. But the plot was its strongest point. However, i'm pretty much dissuaded from replaying because i know how it's going to end. Although if it had a more fulfilling and enlightening ending, one that made me proud to have had an involvement in. I wouldn't mind replaying this game, because it would be both uplifting and a treat to experience again.

Take for example, an RPG that has many different outcomes of how it could end. I may replay the said game, 4 or 5 times. It matters how good it is, but for the majority i'd replay it in the same manner that had the best resolution. I don't know, i guess its just my take on this, but i'm curious as to what you guys think

I don't own the game so I can't replay it, but I didn't think the shooting was very good. The gameplay was better in Bioshock and already poor there.

Would I? I already did finish it twice. Hard mode then 1999 mode. It was a great game already. Just can't wait for the DLC to come out.

No.

Most American-made stories end with a happy resolution. Why? Because we were conditioned to have happy endings thanks to companies like Disney. We got plenty of "Happily Ever Afters", sometimes I look for a more clever plot with an ending that makes you think critically, which is what most gamers don't like to do.

Anyway, want a challenge? Do the same run I'm doing

Go 1999 Mode with no upgrades, no Dollar Bills, and no Infusions. Good Luck.

Well i guess you liked the gameplay, so you have a reason to replay this. But how about from the story point of view?

I'm stoked to play again. You find so many hints and such that enrich the finale, seeing them through the lens of things you can't un-see. If anything, it is all the more heartbreaking, and all the more totally awesome.

I actually liked the story too. You just notice tiny things when you already know the ending. His reluctance to go through with the baptism when entering Columbia and him saying he should get into the profit business when he discovers Comstock gets a 50 percent at the bank. Little things like that keep me interested. I mean the story has it's flaws but nothing is perfect.

I thought the ending was pretty good as is, and noticing all the foreshadowing just makes it better the second time around.

I've already complete it twice (first run on hard, second on normal getting collectibles) and I'll be starting my 1999 run soon.
I love the ending how it is. I actually like sad endings in games (like the ME3 ending) rather than the standard *hero saves everyone and everything*. Although I will admit, I really wanted Booker and Elizabeth to go to Paris together.
