Wait, There's a Video Game Based on Ayn Rand??

Apparently, the answer is "Yes." And the game is called BioShock.

From the Wikipedia entry...

BioShock is a first-person shooter video game…designed by Ken Levine. It was released…on August 21, 2007… Set in an alternate history 1960, the game places the player in the role of a plane crash survivor named Jack, who must explore the underwater city of Rapture, and survive attacks by the mutated beings and mechanical drones that populate it.

The game received overwhelmingly positive reviews, being particularly well-reviewed in the mainstream press, which praised its "morality-based" storyline, immersive environment and Ayn Rand-inspired dystopian back-story…

2K's president Christoph Hartmann stated that BioShock could have five sequels, comparing the franchise to the Star Wars movies.
