    What an incredibly classy way to end an article
  • Hexateuch - October 6, 2010 7:10 p.m.

    How many people you wanna bet get stupidly offended by that last one?
  • SwampRock - October 6, 2010 7:11 p.m.

    just try living in utah and dealing with the mormons, major cult they be. Spreading their "gospel" but really they just want to control people and have them do their bidding and give them money, pretty sweet deal for them.

    Wow. Ballsy. Good job.

    I'm catholic and I'm not very offended by it. I actually laughed
  • boxmeizter - October 6, 2010 7:29 p.m.

    the treeminder picture is trippy, "woooaah" (keanu reeves)
  • oneshotfinch - October 6, 2010 7:34 p.m.

    MOst Catholics don't actually believe in that sort of crap you know. They're just in it for the sense of community.
  • LastPariah - October 6, 2010 7:35 p.m.

    @ninjaedbear You know what's rude is religious people trying to cram religon down my throat and say i'm going to hell(The Worst place you can end up in their beliefs). I say it's fair that we take a jab at religion every now and then.

    i never saw the saturnine in bioshock. were they in bioshock 2? ambrosia is the virus in deus ex that the government created.
  • paganpoet - October 6, 2010 7:42 p.m.

    Cult of Kefka > all of these. stay pressed. x
  • JohnDagger - October 6, 2010 7:45 p.m.

    I'm sorry Jim Sterling, Imma let you finish, but the Raincoat Cult in Dead Rising was the best Cult of all time....OF ALL TIME!
  • Christopia - October 6, 2010 7:49 p.m.

    I can think of a few more fun cults, Los illuminados in resi 4 is a good one! Fair play on the Catholicism thing, I don't belive religion should be immune to criticism, after all, if people will hold an outdated and inaccurate belife in the face of overwhelming evidence, why not poke fun?
  • Eluros - October 6, 2010 7:51 p.m.

    Okay, first off, the Cult of Kefka should have been on this list. Thanks to paganpoet for mentioning it first. Second, I am fairly confident that mainstream Roman Catholics do not believe there are monsters in hell. Hell is a place of torment-- why would demons want to be there, if they would be tormented? I get the sort of humor you're going for, but the last entry is very snarky and low-brow. I expect better from games journalists-- or, for that matter, my 17-year-old brother.
  • NelosAngelos - October 6, 2010 7:55 p.m.

    By Odin's name! Thank the great wanderer these are all just fictitious beliefs!
  • NelosAngelos - October 6, 2010 7:58 p.m.

    And what about the cult of the Damned from Warcraft 3? Pretty twisted there. They believe in their "paradise" is to be reanimated into rotting hulking monstrosities and serve their king for all eternity in a glorious world of shadow and necrophiliacs....eeeeeeeeeeh *shudders*
  • wampastompa - October 6, 2010 8:02 p.m.

    One thing I learned from minoring in religious studies in college, the 'real' ones are almost as crazy as the made-up ones! Not a slam at religious people, I'm all for whatever gives you hope!
  • Kingsman - October 6, 2010 8:03 p.m.

    Ouch on that last one...though I haven't seen any one froth at the mouth yet.
  • kyle94 - October 6, 2010 8:08 p.m.

    Technically, the Covenant aren't really a cult. Considering it has complete control over planets, several alien races, and probably billions of individuals, it's just a religion. A cult is any religion that is either small and/or recent. I don't think the Covenant is either. It's kind of like calling the Catholic Church during the Middles Ages a did that too... Never mind then.
  • vanguard - October 6, 2010 8:14 p.m.

    Weird, an atheist is taking offense to a dig at a religion he doesn't even believe in. Poser, anyone? I've never seen the Bioshock cult myself, but I might have just blasted through them just to get some Adam.
