Ken Levine didn't want BioShock endings

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/10...hock_endings/1

In a recent interview Ken Levine has admitted that the multiple endings to BioShock weren't his idea and that he didn't want to do them. So, just what did he have in mind?

i was very disapointed in the endings and would have preferred something a little more artistic
two minutes worth of video of little girls jumping on the baddy regardles of what you did then adding pictures of you either holding their hand or jumping on a sub is just not good enough

I was disappointed with getting the 'bad' ending first time round, it seemed that you didn't have to stray to far from the path of the righteous to be stuck with a 'you are an evil so-and-so' ending.

Still, it was a bit more satisfying then the ending of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and it was encouragement to play thorough it again to see the other outcome.

I did expect better from Bioshock though, the ending felt a rather like a token gesture, and i felt that the outcome didn't match the spirit in which i was playing the game.

Oh, like the Fallout games then? Sorry Ken, but it's already been done. Fallout 2 perfected the idea of branching endings long before BioShock was a twinkle in your eye.
That sounds a little harsh. Why does it matter that fallout did it before if it is a better system? He didn't claim it was an original idea, at least not in the extract you have in your article.

well. when you think about it, in a sence one ending would have been the right choice.


See, the big problem is moral...

Am i a bad person to molester a ingame child? Do others see me as a sick child sucking monster when i will choose the "bad" option. Or do people find me soft, a whimp, gay when choosing the "helping" option. A good person (like me) will choose the "helping" option. But if i see, for example, my brother choose the "bad" option and beat the crap out of little girls without even a wink. Does this mean he is a bad person?

food for deeper thoughts..

Just poking fun, no offense intended to him. Levine is a hero of mine!
