I don't think it is a really a bioshock game

What is it that makes a bioshock game to you?
There has only been one bioshock that isnt this one, nothing to base it on. Rapture was done, nothing left to cover.

well to me a bioshock game should take place in rapture

I understand your point, but it just wouldn't work if they would take you to Rapture once again in 3rd title. BioShock 2 already got a bit critic of the fact that the game took the place again in Rapture.
A game doesn't necessarily have to be in the same setting to be a sequel . . .

So in other words, far cry 3 isn't really a far cry game because it takes place in a different spot for every installment? L4D2 isn't a left 4 dead game because it has a different setting? if that's the case, then every sequel made in the last decade doesn't count as part of its own series. (alright, maybe not every one, but the majority of them)

Hmmm. I do not consider Bioshock franchise separate from System Shock (1 and 2) for, in fact, all these games are parts of evolution of one complex idea - research of a society stuck in absolutely specific condition affected by some sort of supernatural modifier by an outsider. And from this point of view B:I is entirely legit sequel, i.e. System Shock 5 :) Also: what makes you call a game bad only for being different? B:I is quite a solid game with awesome story and great setting.

The OP actually said BS:I was a good game, not bad.

well I mean if you played the game to the end you'd probably understand why it's a Bioshock game (I don't want to spoil anything)

Quoting here: " I thought BI was a good game but... I don't think it is a really a bioshock game". So, if OP thinks Bioshock Infinite is NOT a good game, what game is it?

Ah, now I got it. Ahem. Well, OP has an awesome skill of formulating his thoughts. I'm still not sure if he means that he thought BI was a good game before playing it, or after )
There's always a city and there's always a man...

City and man. Both are there, it's a bioshock game! :D

Games change locations all the time, but this is indeed a Bioshock game. From start to finish, it's impossible to not see it (also if you have finished it, you would understand the conection to the first one as well)

Concept of ...Shock game is - "a guy from outside gets into an unusual society affected by some sort of natural supernatural phenomenon and explores this phenomenon during action/RPG/FPS gameplay using a set of abilities and variety of guns. Somewhere around 2/3 of game there should be a TWIST".
