I think it's really interesting to see games I love in very early forms. Linked above is the first 10 minutes of BioShock Infinite shown in 2010. The game starts very differently and features a different voice cast for Booker. Columbia looks very similar to how the game shipped but the placement of buildings and nearly every story beat is different. That said, I think the final shipped game introduction is better as well as the gameplay. Some felt that the shipped version of BioShock Infinite wasn't what was demo'd and were disappointed with it but from this early footage I am very glad they made the changes they did.

What do you think, is this something you'd rather have played or do you like the shipped intro for BioShock Infinite?

Was that meant to be the original intro? It looks like 10 minutes of gameplay from what would have been near the beginning but starting with "That thing took Elizabeth" wouldn't really set up the narrative well.

But yeah even as different as this is, it makes me want to jump back in. What a great game.

Damn I remember drooling over this video when it first came out.

I saw a later video and it was really different from the final game too.
