For the second time before its release, EA's upcoming gothic adventure game Dante's Inferno finds itself the center of controversy. The first episode was the result of an elaborate hoax by the publisher, who hired fake Christian actors to 'protest' the game outside the doors of E3. Now the game has come under fire from another special interest group, and while unusual, we assure you that it is not a hoax. The International Nanny Association (INA) has caught wind of a special achievement in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, and they are not pleased about it. The achievement, called 'Bad Nanny,' is won when a player slaughters a certain number of unbaptized children. You see, in the original Divine Comedy, one of the levels of purgatory is inhabited by dead demon babies who passed away before being baptized. Whether or not it is appropriate to make a video game about such a thing is still open to debate.

It is very strange that games are the center of controversy
