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.

The Stanley Parable
ESRB Rating: NR - Not Rated
My Rating: Ages 13 and up
Genre: Walking Simulator
Summary: This is the review of a game about a man named Stanley. In this game, Stanley is controlled by a person at a computer, and it is their job to ensure that Stanley follows the Narrator's instructions. By doing so faithfully, the player will see a story unfold before them, as it was meant to be. Or not, as the player has a large degree of agency themselves, much to the Narrator's dismay.

Script
In computing, a script is a set of instructions for the computer to execute via an interpreter. Unlike normal source code, these instructions are executed as they are read rather than translating them into the computer's machine language.
