BioShock Infinite is absolutely stuffed to the brim with subtle nods at popular culture – but it’s also packing a few Shakespeare quotes, too. You may have noticed a strange whispering sound when using the game’s Possession Vigor, but did you know that these seemingly incomprehensible noises are actually lines from Romeo & Juliet being played in reverse?

The voice murmurs softly: “Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow'd night / Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die / Take him and cut him out in little stars." You can peruse the evidence in the video embedded below. Who says that games aren’t educational, huh?
