Grand Theft Auto: The Valley of Maggido

In an earlier post I made reference to the Left Behind series of apocalyptic literature and how Kirk Cameron has been adapting the books into movies.
Last night while watching The Daily Show I learned that the books are also being adapted into a video game.
Could this be the next big trend in video games?
There are lots of possibilities to combine biblical themes with strategy and advanced 3D graphics.
Imagine a game in which as part of the gameplay, rather than having to maintain your health levels, you have have to maintain your piety levels by going around and washing the feet of lepers and fasting.
And then, once you build up enough piety so as to be considered without sin, you can stone a hooker to death...
