The only philosophy game I know (insofar as any game is not a game of philosophy) is Battleground God, which forced me to deal with this little chestnut:
Bite the bullet and say that it is possible that God wants what is sinful (to reiterate the argument here - she must want to reduce suffering; she could make the reduction of suffering a sin; but if she did so, what she wanted (reducing suffering) would be sinful).
I think I lost interest somewhere around the nested parenthetical, but see how you do.

My brain hurts. Why did you do that to me?
I did okay (bit one bullet, took one hit) but felt I was shot in the back with the evolution "theory" nit.
You suffered 1 direct hit and bit zero bullets.
* This compares with the average player of this activity to date who takes 1.37 hits and bites 1.10 bullets
tmonkey, I'm more internally consistent than you!
Brought me back to the SAT days where I played the game rather than get played by the game (and got burned a couple times). Where the test doesn't really sit well with me is the idea that it assumes that having a higher standard of proof for two different theories is a bad thing. Bad enough to be shot for.
