First-person shooter video game "Bioshock" was notable for its portrayal of a society based on the philosophical principles of Ayn Rand. The sequal, Bioshock 2 apparently took on Karl Marx. According to Adam Serwer, the third installation, Bioshock Infinite may deal with Reinhold Niebuhr's critique of American exceptionalism. Serwer writes:
I thought BioShock's take on how terrible a Randian society would actually be was well timed given the ongoing preeminence of Rand in American conservative politics. I'm curious to see how they handle the concept of American exceptionalism, which liberals and conservatives tend to interpret quite differently. It's hard to imagine, that all the recent reminders of the actual limits of American power, from the economic crisis, to an endless war in Afghanistan, to ongoing high unemployment won't in some way be a factor in how Irrational Games chooses to reinterpret an era of naive optimism, especially given the company's tendency towards using tragic irony as an element of horror. Having gone from Rand to Marx, it sounds like the third BioShock might have a sprinkling of Niebuhr.
