    Absolutely loving it and a big +1 to Valve for understanding the complaint and acting accordingly. Also to the gamer who complained, nice one. He approached the matter correctly and hence the query was resolved. I'm glad that I read a lot of reviews first because I too would have been in the same situation if I hadn't done that. Maybe games need to contain ratings for prejudice/blasphemous content so that gamers who care about this sort of stuff can be properly warned before buying it.

    Yeah and then after the giant warning labels that will set every person on the planet at ease about everything they find offensive, there may even be space left for some cover art.

    Wait. Isn't killing people against his religious beliefs? Because in Bioshock, you do a lot of that.

    Yet he would have no problem killing in the game, which clearly goes against the 6th commandment in the bible, hypocrite much?

    Ja, that's quite a gaping hole in his argument isn't it?

    I lol'ed.

    Rampant killing is apparently fine, but a character in your videogame being baptized isn't. How very, very funny.
