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

Spam
Spam can refer to two different things. Most commonly, it's the term for unwanted, unsolicited messages -- the internet's version of junk mail.

In the context of video games, spamming refers to using an ability repeatedly in a short amount of time. Frequently this is derogatory, as it implies that the person spamming the ability isn't playing well or they're flailing around like an idiot.
