Hey, guys!
Recently I read an article in my local newspaper that said that they are now releasing games about the Bible. In one game, you run around smiting (is that spelled right?) your enimies. Also, you can gain "The Armor of God," a special ability that sheilds you from all blows. Instead of the baddies splurting blood, they get down on their knees and pray when you kill them. The baddies are Roman Soilders who are possessed. Sad, huh? What are your views on this subject?

My views: If they wanted to remain true to the Bible, they would need blood, gore, and sex, because the Bible is filled with all of that stuff (not saying its good ). Also, I don't think kids will buy these games. It will give them a good laugh, of course. If you want to teach kids about Religon, then do it the old fashion way. Heck, beat them if you have to!

Reply, please!

theres a game called Bible Adventures on NES. Not only is it the worst games ever, but it has nothing do with the bible. David would fight squirrels in the forest! Just one example of a religious game.

Xenogears almost was not released to the United States because it has it's weird funky religious content.

What's sad about that? If a game about jesus is so bad then why are films about him ok?

i was going to make a game called Jesus 2000: Judas Must Pay or something, in which you track down and kill judas la kill bill. i might still do it... the acronym would be the best though, "J2K:JMP".

Not acceptable, unless I'm god. Like in Actraiser.

I started making a game once called Pope Fiction. It was a matio clone, but you played as the pope. Instead of growing bigger when you pick thigs up, you just get a hat that makes you twice as large.

Well, like most of my games I did the engine and graphics and couldn't be stuffed to make any levels. I might finish it one day.

While we're on religious Tarantino parodies, I was thinking of making a game called Reservoir Dogma.
