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.

Today's Glossary Entry

Hit Points
Often abbreviated HP, this is a measurement of how much damage (ie, how many hits) a character in a game can receive before they are killed.

In most games, healing injuries is depicted by restoring a character's HP. However, there is usually an upper limit to how many hit points a character can have (called Max HP), and healing them further will usually do nothing.
