Andrew Ryan by LenkaSimeckova Andrew Ryan by LenkaSimeckova
I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture.

So there he is. Visionary - Andrew Ryan, my second favourite character in Bioshock.

This is really good! Your art style, in my opinion at least, fits Bioshock really well.

Sadly while his ideologies were debatably good it was the people's interpretation of the ideologies that led to the cities downfall(as well as Adam junkies) caused by people thinking his mentality meant freedom of morality to succeed in the world, and warping it to make sure they stay above people

The best line in Bioshock.

I only wish I could have not beat him to death. I mean, with the sudden revelation of being a engineered assassin and a pawn, and him being so brave as to stick to his ideals and beliefs to such a horrible and bitter end... Really got me feeling respect, even pity as he died.

Plus, you could see why he chose his beliefs. Sofia Lamb was just boring. With Andrew Ryan, you wanted to listen to his beliefs, because he worked to build something great. With Sofia, you wanted to kick her in the face.

I KNOW! The second one drove me crazy, Lamb was a pain in the ass, she was like a stuck up, nutball psychiatrist. I mean, I got the ultimate good ending in my first and only playthrough, so I was like all emotional when I saw her life spared, but DAMN did she piss me off.

Ryan was fascinating. I  completely disagree with his beliefs, but damn, the guy was legendary, suave, powerful, and too see him in such agony, staring death in the face, uttering his last lines, I hated myself for just having to watch him die. Even after all he had done, I still wanted to spare him. 

I spared Sander Cohan, I didn't give a rip about the plasmid you can get by killing him, THAT guy was epic. Steinmann was epic, completely insane, but one of the most memorable antagonists in gaming history, least that I know of.

Andrew Ryan truly was a visionary in his own making who made a dream into a city at the bottom of the sea.

While he deserved his end, the guy did get my respect for his ideals and sticking to em through till the end.

Nice job.

I totally agree with you and thank you:)

The guy who played an exploitative capitalist also played a radical libertarian...
Who would have guessed?

The character is very creepy and quite insane (before or after going to Rapture, I wonder?), but damn well put together.

Ha, i didn't know it, that's kind of funny.
He was between madness and genius and I really admire and respect him, even he did what he did (He kill Jasmine, that's the only thing, that really piss me off on him).
