This article examines how religion is critically depicted in the acclaimed digital game BioShock: Infinite from 2013. The game plays with popular notions of evangelical religion, mixed with themes related to so-called dangerous cults and sects. In this construction, BioShock: Infinite strangely vacillates between a biting liberal caricature of religiously fueled nationalism and a nod to widespread moderate mainstream values in which unusual religious movements are negatively portrayed. The article argues that a critique of a mainstream religious movement such as evangelical Christianity is not possible for a multi-billion-dollar industry which is wary of critical topics that may potentially estrange its broad consumer base.
