Valve has refunded the money of a man who says that a certain choice in Bioshock Infinite goes against his religious beliefs. We won't mention the specifics of the choice beyond saying that it relates to a Christian religious rite, so as to avoid giving any spoilers. Breen Malmberg, who says he is a Christian, found the choice to be unacceptable.
"I am basically being forced to make a choice between committing extreme blasphemy by my actions in choosing to accept this 'choice' or forced to quit playing the game before it even really starts," Malmberg told Kotaku.
"Of course I cannot hold true to my beliefs and also commit this act, so I am therefor[e] forced to not play the game," he added.
Malmberg later wrote a letter to Valve asking for a refund because he bought the game on Steam. Valve gave him the refund, according to Malmberg.
Malmberg's biggest problem with the game is that the choice presented is no choice at all. You either commit to the act or you cannot move forward.
"The difference here is that you are forced to make a decision that violates those beliefs in order to continue with the game–which is not something I have run into very often," he added.
Valve has not publicly commented on this story, nor has Bioshock Infinite developer Irrational Games.
