As the title says *SPOILERS BELOW*
I just beat this and man that ending was straight out of an acid trip of self discovery.
I figured that Diwitt was her dad from the audio logs but him and Prophet being the same dude with the crazy thing with the doors and lighthouses. Did not see all that metaphysical existential stuff coming at all.
People are sheep, they bleet and whine and wait for someone else to do the hard work, then when it happens they celebrate like they won a great war all by themselves.

Use the spoiler tag friend
And I considered it decent.

I would not say mind blowing from the LP's I have been watching. But certainly pretty good.

Pretty darn good - it's not so much that it had "an amazing twist at the end" (although the twist was still good) it was more that the plot was so well crafted. Paradoxical plot lines are very common in Sci-Fi, but the writers were definitely pushing the boundaries of game story telling - I would go as far to say adding another dimension to it in fact.
Put it this way, the plot of Half-Life seems like the plot of Pong in comparison to this, as it really is a step in the right direction.
Very quickly.... I will say I was a little disappointed in the graphics (although NOT the art which was amazing, if that makes sense). With options at full I rarely dropped below 130 fps, and a lot of the textures/artwork looked like they were from a dx-9 card [insert dig at consoles here] I almost wish it could have been released on the next gen of consoles and THEN spruced up to PC levels... Still, I should be thankful, without the console market you'd never get production values like these. Oh yes, loved the music too.

Well, the ending is kind of trippy. Spoiler:
You're Booker Dewitt -and- Comstock. From what I understand, you were baptized in one dimension and became Comstock, and bought your other dimensions daughter that did -not- die. The brother and sister Lutence, I assumed they were alternate dimensional versions of each other. One born a boy, the other a girl, and a brother and sister in point of fact. I'm not sure if that's the case or not, but it's what I'll go with. Are there alternate endings besides you dieing and Elizabeth disappearing?[/Spoiler]

There's a warning of spoilers in the topics name, hence why I didn't use the tags originally. Please calm down.
Apparently Comstock getting killed in his baptism prevented Anna ever being sold and becoming Elizabeth. Think she'll still grow up to have those weird powers? Also, think Booker and Comstock had different wives? Comstock's survived childbirth but the baby died, so maybe it was the same woman but a reversal on what happened?

There were so many amazing little details to watch and enjoy if you took the time to explore and not rush to the end. This game rewards that amazingly well. Like in the basementSpoiler:
when you pick up the guitar and start playing Will the Circle be Unbroken and Elizabeth starts singing, I was just stunned by the beauty of that simple moment and even more stunned when I realized just how major a role that song played
