Christian bloggers attack EA over E3 Dante's Inferno "protest"

We had a feeling that some real Christians might not care for Electronic Arts' recent viral marketing stunt for their upcoming action game Dante's Inferno. As we reported last week an apparent protest of the game at E3 2009 last week was later discovered to be a publicity stunt with actors portraying Christians opposed to the game.

GamePolitcs reports that at least two Christian bloggers have attacked EA's portrayal of the protesters in the stunt. InsideCatholic blooger Margaret Cabaniss states, "It's been clear for a while now that the entertainment inudstry views Christians on the whole as priggish, thin-skinned fun-killers." Meanwhile the Catholic Video Games web site posts up a note saying, "Gamers of all varieties will buy this product if its, well, actually a good game. So instead of engaging in a shamelessly anti-Christian stunt to promote your poor excuse of a product, maybe you ought to work on making this game, you know, something better than a blatant God of War rip-off and make it, ya know, something worthwhile?
