Absolving and punishing demons for their sins and the slaughter of babies in hell is just some of the game play content featured in Dante's Inferno. But what's fun for some might be extremely offensive to others.

It's no secret that Dante's Inferno has aleady had its fair share of controversy. The INA (International Nannies Association) opposed the game after the 'Bad Nanny' achievement/trophy was introduced. They claimed that the achievement was "offensive to real nannies" and that it promoted "real-life violence". I think what people forget is that the creators of Dante's Inferno aren't sending a message to the world to kill unbaptized children or to cause problems for nannies. It's a fictional re-telling of a poem written more than 700 years ago. Is there such a thing as perspective anymore? Sometimes, I wonder.

So the religious undertones and the bad nanny reference might be unsettling for some. To be honest, if a group of toddlers with knives for arms were making their way toward me, I doubt I'd be asking if they wanted to play 'peek-a-boo'. I mean that would be kinda lame and not a whole lot of fun. Is the message (if indeed, there is one) in Dante's Inferno really as controversial as some people see it? Or is it just another case of people taking what they believe in a little [I]too[/I] seriously and projecting that back onto the entertainment medium?

Dante's Inferno is one hell of a game (excuse the pun) and having finished it, I can't wait for the next instalment which allows you to play co-op multiplayer with a buddy taking up the role of St Lucia. Double the carnage! I think Dante's Inferno is sending out the message that nothing, not even religion or babies in hell can be exempt from being included as an entertaining way to let off some steam. I for one can't wait to go back to hell this April.
