I am just glad there are video games I can play, but yes, some games are too far out there for me to play.
I like the older Tomb raider from TB raider 1- 8- All the way up to Underworld.
I also like Final Fantasy, esp, X, XI, XII (Zodiac age), XIII and XIII-2. FF 9 was boring, though it was a big hit for FF.
FF 7 has a blaspheme, and takes the Lords name in vain, from what I read on this website. I got rid of the game.
Also POP is decent, just a lot of fighting, and scary monsters, so not bad, for a video game.
And I love Gran Trismo, Need for Speed, Carbon, and Nascar games.
I know it sucks when you enjoy a game and then it is ruined by someone twisting religion, or cussing, or whatever.
I agree there should be an option to turn the bad language off, and also the cut scenes, esp if those CS are offensive.
Though some video games have a skip option for the CS, which is nice. But not all games have that feature.
It can be fairly said that computer games, or at least some of them, as a form of escapism can be alright as a form of entertainment, so long as they are done in moderation and that one doesn't let them be something that starts to impinge on one doing their devotions in Scripture daily. I can quite concur, however, that quite a lot of modern games have themes that are completely inappropriate for Christians, and that can make them a snare. I DO wish that some company would take the effort to make RPGs, for instance, that are suitable for Christians to play that don't outrage their sensibilities or otherwise contain inappropriate content In the meantime, I can't recommend strongly enough that Christian parents take care to closely monitor what games their children and teenagers play or that they buy for them, and be sure to correct any inappropriate behavior or unchristian ideas they pick up for them as soon as they occur with gentle disciple through Scripture. Too many parents treat the computer as a sort of baby sitter, the same as the TV and phone, and that can be very dangerous to a child's development and emotional growth, spiritually and otherwise.I think most of the games today are focused on what people want for themselves to be honest. It is meant to be a way to create an alter ego and do stuff that you want to do instead of what we should be doing. Its why I cannot stand most of the current games. Its all about people doing what they want and so filled with negative influences that people actually start acting that way as well.
