I would so buy that game

A pointless and absurd fuss has been brewing in Manchester over Sony’s use of the local cathedral as the backdrop to a shoot-em-up game.

In an attempt to simultaneously conjure up the ghost of Mary Whitehouse and give the Muslims a decent run for their money in the ‘taking offence at really stupid things’ stakes, the god-botherers are trying to get the game withdrawn. Daft sods – if a building I spent my Sundays at (e.g. the pub) were included in a computer game, I’d be fucking delighted.

According to the cleric leading the crusade campaign,

“We still fear that the next buildings to be cloned for virtual desecration could be a mosque, synagogue, temple or other church.”

I would so buy that game. You could have loads of different levels, playing as the KKK, neo-Nazis, Gujurati Hindus, Pakistani Muslims, the IDF, the Romans – the possibilities are near-endless. In ‘expert’ mode, the congregation fights back…

“Worship Desecrator IV: how many can you burn? Out now on PS3!”

    Hmmm. If it’s on the PS3 then it’ll hardly sell at all. Put it out on the PC… have people getting caught playing it at the office. You’ll generate a much bigger furore.

  2. You want to give Rome: Barbarian Invasion a go mate – all the Christians you can crucify, and then some.

    Oh come on chaps, let’s wake up and get with the programme:

    “World Of Worship”
    “Halo”
    “GTA: Vatican City”

  4. Worship Desecrator IV sounds fantastic!

    At the moment, I’m developing a game called Rivers of Blood. You play Ken Livingstone, fighting your way through the race riots of Brixton, Bradford, and Leeds, until you finally head to Wolverhampton for a showdown with Enoch Powell.

    I’m oldschool, which is why I’m doing a Praia da Luz mod for Quake.
