Welcome

Although video games have only been around for a few decades, they've become a staple of modern entertainment. Millions, if not billions, of people are playing video games at this very moment. But, despite the fact that they are so ingrained in our culture, there are many rumors, stigmas, and untruths being spread about video games.

Though hardly alone in this venture, this website aims to explain what's really found in video games, and explore the subject from a Christian perspective. That said, while there are many consoles and platforms available today, this site focuses on PC gaming -- ie, playing video games on your home computer. Some of these games may be available for other systems, some may not.

LOVE
ESRB Rating: NR - Not Rated

Summary: Love is a homage to old school* computer games, and as such, it focuses solely on running through various levels as quickly as possible. There's no story or point, other than the challenge of surviving the many obstacles in your way.

Today's Glossary Entry

Avatar
An "avatar" is a graphical representation of someone. This may be just a picture next to their posts on a forum* or a character they control in a video game or other virtual environment.

In real life and in fiction, AIs* frequently use an avatar to communicate with others, as they have no other means of conveying non-vocal cues like expressions or body language.
