Game: BioShock Infinite

Place: Columbia

About: An impossible city in the sky, Columbia was the brainchild of by religious fanatic, Zachary Comstock and designed by physicist Rosalind Luteca. Though the city appears to float on balloons, it uses quantum levitation that allows it to suspend itself in the sky. Built in the late 1800s, Columbia succeeded from the United States and in its own isolation gained more and more contempt for the “Sodom Below.” Declaring himself a prophet, Comstock turned a possible utopia into a dystopia, fostering racism and classism.

Why Visit: Columbia may be a dystopia, but visiting it will get you thinking about modern-day social issues. The architecture and graphics are absolutely gorgeous as well.

Must See Areas:
• Go zoom around on a sky-hook. It’s like a roller-coaster ride.
• Help the Vox Populi over-throw the government in Finkton.
• Head over the Welcome Center and visit the Columbia raffle and fair.
• Have a good time at Soldier’s Field by visiting the beach in the sky and the ever-fun Battleship Bay.
