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.

Summary: You've probably heard about Icarus, the man who fashioned a pair of wings for himself. In this version of the story, he found and fell in love with Nyx, a winged woman who lived high in the clouds. But their happy life was ruined when a column of fire came from the sun, scorching the Earth and melting Icarus' wings. Distraught, Nyx left her cloud city to find her love, but when she reached the ground it was already barren and burning. Now alone in a broken world, she is the only one that can stand in the way of Helios destroying the Earth.

Today's Glossary Entry

Cheating
In computer games, cheating refers to giving a player an unfair advantage. This is usually done using cheat codes*, some sort of bot* or a method of altering their game's code, such as a hack or mod*.

Cheating in a single player game is usually ignored (and to a degree, expected if the game features cheat codes*). However, cheating in a multiplayer game is usually frowned upon and may result in the cheater being removed from the game (also known as kicked*) or banned* from playing the game altogether.
