The lights are on
This is the place to hang out with Christians who love gaming. If you are a Christian or an open-minded individual I encourage you to join and stay a while.
Hey, I just wanted to know for those of you out there if there ever was a time where you played a christian game?
For me it was The Bible Game and it was a long time ago. It was kinda cheesy, but the songs were some of my favorite christian songs. In my opinion I think we should have a really good and epic bible game. Starting with the events right after the garden of Eden story....What do you think?
Oh and these are some pictures of the bible game:
Stand bold, Stand strong!
I think that would be a good idea and I believe there was a game based off of Abraham or Moses on the NES. It was side scroller, but I can't say it was exactly Biblical.. Yes, I think there should be a new game based off of the Bible.
Was it like a threefer? Moses and Noah and David or something?
Eh, I think a new TV show (with CGI and everything) would be great. But a game where you play old Bible stories?... Not only would it not sell, but the people who DID buy it (who would probably all be Christians) wouldn't get very edified by playing it.
We need a hardcore game with a story, like Signs, or The Book of Eli.
agree with you there pon!
I can't say my pre-developed game has many similarities between Signs or Eli, but it's got a great story anyway. Oh, that's another thing: even if the story IS good, if the gameplay fails, it'll be doomed to lame reviews and a small group of players.
It won't be about reviews, as you know this world, people will ALWAYS attack any religious game....That is why it has to be subtle so that any one could pick it up and it could possibly guide them to GOD.
Well, the better the reviews, the more people will play the game. I guess this is where the line needs to be crossed that decides which is more important: gameplay or story (I personally think they're both essential, and even one and the same at times).
There's also another game called Guitar Praise. It's like Guitar Hero, but with christian rock bands.
I didn't know about that game... It does sound like a good idea though.
Yeah we should have more games that are like rock band for Christians. Some bands could be Hillsong, Jars of Clay ect....
I don't know about christain videogames. Most christian movies and games always come off as the blatent in-your-face type of christian. I don't know about you guys but when someone yells at a wallmart parking lot or crossection about how god is real and you need to repent, it makes me want to argue with them even though I'm a christian too. The blatent in-your-face type of preaching is a big turn-off for some people including myself.
That is why I said in another post that it has to be done in a subtle manner. Read Pon's post about Christian Games and you'll see my point.
Well, I wouldn't exactly say your idea was subtle, Cobra.... (: I personally like my masterpiece a whole lot better. And yeah, I like Jars of Clay, too. Do you still listen to that?
No the Angel idea was not subtle, but the "Heavy Rainish" idea with the multiple characters is way more subtle. Yes I still listen to all of the christian bands i listed to 15 years ago....:D
