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: While exploring Mars, a pair of astronauts discover bizarre alien plant life.

Today's Glossary Entry

Fetch Quest
A fetch quest is a common type of quest* in games. As the name implies, you're basically being asked to go find something and bring it back to the NPC* that gave you the task.

It's sort of like giving someone a list and sending them off to the grocery store. Note that a good game will make acquiring the items fun and enjoyable; often hiding the items someplace new each time.
