    I just realized...

    While reading the TV Tropes page on Bioshock I just discovered something really interesting from the "What could have been section".

    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...=Main.BioShock

    According to the original pitch of the game, you would have played as Carlos Cuello, a "deprogrammer" asssigned to infiltrate a mysterious cult based on a remote island and "rescue" a wealthy heiress being held there.
    I just realized that the originally pitched plotline became (or transferred to) Bioshock: Infinite. I guess we know where the Booker/Elizabeth and Columbia being a religious fanatical society plotlines came from which the originally pitched plan for the first Bioshock game and Infinite sound rather identical.

    So basically, Bioshock Infinite is the closest game we're going to get for what they originally planned for the first game.

    That TV Tropes reference to Carlos Cuello being a deprogrammer in the original pitch almost sounded too bizarre to be real considering that BioShock 2's dev team included Carlos Cuello as Lead Programmer....

    Cue Jack Palance's raspy "Believe it....OR NOT."
