ABADON ALL HOPE OF REMAINING SPOILER FREE YE WHO ENTER!
HERE BE DRAGONS - AND THEY SHOUT SPOILERS - HERE!
THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE - TURN BACK NOW - THERE ARE GOING TO BE SPOILERS!
Focus on other characters. In previous titles, we've been given the chance to play as other characters, specifically the "heavy hitters" - Big Daddy and Big Sister. Well, what if we were able to take the role of Songbird and just tore the city to shreds? Or a Handyman? Or maybe take the role of a "normal" person - like master hunter Preston E. Downs, or Captain Cornelius Slate, or the infamous Daisy Fitzroy herself?
Then there is the obvious - be another Booker. Maybe you are the Booker who became the Martyr of the Vox. Or maybe your a Booker who is closer to Comstock - so you take the side of the Founders. Or maybe they actually let you explore that option a little at least. The pre-game game Industrial Revolution left the impression that you would actually get to change choice. It could be like a Fallout New Vegas where you get to back one faction, or the other, or try to take them both out and set yourself up as the new Prophet, or at least the new leader of Columbia.
I'd also like the chance to further explore a pre-uprising Columbia. Like before the False Prophet was revealed even. No shooting, no explosions - just a nice turn-of-the-previous-century city in the sky, with a lot of racism and religious zealotry. The fact is, the team at Irrational put a lot of thought and effort into setting all that backstory up, and I'd like to explore it. I'm not saying I want to be Comstock or anything, I think that would be too easy - who really stands to oppose him? But some scenario where I can explore different time periods. Even getting out into the city of the Future Lamb of Columbia, with the Boys of Silence and the Masked Founders.... More of a stealth mission type thing.
What I hope they don't do is let you play as Elizabeth. I think it would be boring to run around invincible to gun fire, and scrounge for items to throw to an AI Booker, and open tears at his command.
