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.

Recommended Game of the Day

PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX+
ESRB Rating: E - Everyone
My Rating: Everyone
Genre: Arcade
Summary: This isn't the classic Pac Man game. Instead of wandering about, clearing a maze of dots, this game is about racing through a maze as fast as you can. Trails of dots appear to lead the way, while ghosts follow behind Pac Man in a dangerous conga line. One wrong turn can end your game, so stay alert and move quickly!

Today's Glossary Entry

Flash game
A "Flash game" is a game made using Adobe's Flash technology. These tend to be very simple and extremely limited, though there are exceptions.

The vast majority of games like this are found on websites and are playable for free. Over the years, this has cultivated a mindset that simple games should either be extremely inexpensive or free.

Since Adobe has formally announced that Flash is retiring, this type of online content is likely to become a piece of gaming history. Similar online games made today are made using HTML5, though the term "HTML5 game" hasn't quite caught on yet.
