Got Jesus?

Wired has an article up on how some publishers are working on faith-based games that subsitute fun violence for learning and the finger of god. Instead of pwing yor enemies by thrashing the hell heck out of them, why not pray for them or use the "finger of god" to convert them? Can't you feel the world becoming a better place? It will be interesting to see how violent some of these game get. What would be the difference in a Passion of the Christ video game or the violence in Halo 2 for instance.
The startup companies hope that games with biblical messages can parallel the recent surge in the popularity of Christian music and cinema. But don't look for multiplayer smiting or wrathful vengeance in their offerings: The games that will show up on retail shelves in time for Christmas emphasize narrative stories and learning rather than action.
