I would add Dragon Age: Origins in that list.

witchcraft is not even religion, it was made up in fairy tales, as which are the games also supposed to be taken

you could grab any children's book, for example three nuts for cinderella, and say it TEACHES WITCHCRAFT OMG

I'm baaack..

Ok, so I'm not the only one who noticed the religious theme that pervades certain games in the gaming industry. I guess I think it's insane when some people go all crazy and nuts over a religious game and stuff.

Yeah...and Christian games DO tend to be quite annoying too! I think the main problem with many of them is that they tend to "copy" other people's ideas almost to the point of copyright infringement (ie Super 3D Noah's Ark [Castle Wolfenstein clone, anyone?]) How about Spiritual Warfare where you run around in a park, throwing fruit at "heathens" and demons pop out of their head or when the end boss (the devil) gets defeated by a cluster of exploding grapes?

Overall, I'd say that Nacah, Saints of Virtue, and Captain Bible are, so far, games that I'd give a good recommendation to.

R.u.s.s, maybe he meant Wicca when he said "witchcraft," but still, I don't see how it was an actual theme of the game, although there were motifs, i.e the standing stones/dolmens etc. But those are relics of a long-gone culture which neopaganism has adopted.

Now once again, I am going by the screenshots of Simon the Sorcerer; didn't he ever mix any portions, learn how to cast spells, and similar stuff like that?

just like when that evil fairy teaching witchcraft in three nuts for cinderella casts her powerful spells and turns a pumkin into a coach

this book should not be read by christians because it corrupts their minds i think

Achievement unlocked. You can now be proud of being in the same league as Kevin McCullough, Martha MacCallum or Jack Thompson: ignorants criticising games and their content without having ANY first-hand experience with them.

I'd enjoy watching you reap the shitstorm you've sown, but there's such a thing as too much of a good thing. Therefore, I'm going to restrain myself to locking this thread.
