I still haven't found out where the proper link to this is but if you add /keys to the URL of a game's profile it'll show the additional keys you have for it.

E.g. for this game: Desura.com

So in-game the pentacle means christianity, the swastika means good luck, and the skull and crossbones means... happiness? xD

There was intention, even if implied.

What if the intention was to imply the pentagrams were locking evil inside the rooms and the skull and crossbones are a warning?
You're getting off topic though, since we're talking about the implied meaning of the symbols themselves that you think MIGHT be offensive. I do admit, they could be offensive to the uneducated, but you can't please everyone.
Either way, the imagery is set to something you're trying to defeat, both the pentagrams and the swastikas. It's like those Jesus freaks that got all up in arms over Doom having demons in it when you're the one killing the demons.
It's like being offended by a WWII game because there are Nazis in it.
My original point though, was you put the pentagram under cons while stating it's a moral PREFERENCE, then explain the neutral section as being based on PREFERENCE. Basically, you're being biased in your review based on ignorant beliefs.

Brother, you are seriously being far too aggressive, calling me uneducated and stuff.

We all know what they mean to our current culture. When you see it in Doom on the teleporters, or on the skulls, it doesn't mean Christianity, it doesn't mean a ward, it means demons. Demons that run free on Mars and shoot things. I'm not saying John Romero was an expert on demonism, satanism, symbolism, etc. What I AM saying is that he demonstrates an excellent example of how they are most commonly used.
When you see it on a metal band logo, no one says, "Oh hey, they must be Christian", or "They must represent humanity", or "They must be trying to ward off something evil."
Granted, the symbols on the doors serve as a lovely early warning system, but if the pentagrams were designed to lock the monster in, as you say, should the skull and crossbones as well as the swastika not serve the same purpose? We both know swastikas don't keep people locked behind doors.

I admit, there is reading up I have to do. Regardless, you are completely bypassing the implied nature of a symbol designed to mean something that you (for some reason) seem to have a complete objection toward. What are you fighting for, bro?

So to answer your question in full: get over it. No biggie. You're getting all worked up over my IGNORANT RELIGION.
