Pardon the dust!
This page includes some jargon that hasn't been added to the site's glossary yet. I'll be around to fix this later, but sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime.

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

Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?!
ESRB Rating: E - Everyone
My Rating: Ages 6 and up
Genre: Time Management
Summary: In this humorous time management game, the typical roles are reversed. Instead of you running around and fighting monsters, you run the smithy that makes the protagonist's weapons. This is a silly, "feel good" sort of game, and casual gamers* will probably enjoy the time they spend watching their potatoes dance away the hours.

Today's Glossary Entry

Busywork
Busywork is any unnecessary and overly tedious action that takes up time for no real gain. Like filler*, the only thing this adds to a game is the amount of time it takes to complete the action -- it's just extra work that keeps you busy.

The more busywork in a game, the more players are going to get bored and leave.
