Many System Shock 2 players roundly criticised Bioshock for not following closely enough in the footsteps of Irrational Games' seminal title.

Irrational have been digging through their box files and the original pitch for Bioshock has come to light in all its glory. Want to know how videogames are born? Then here's your answer.

Bioshock was distinctly different back then. Hackers infiltrating Biomechanical organisations - but interestingly the pitch does show the very first seeds of the entity that would eventually grow into a Big Daddy - here referred to as a "Man o' War".

Worth a look methinks. Sometimes you wish publishers would just stay the foch out of the design of games though, right?
