Shhhhh... nobody mention the Crusades
Actually, at the end of the day, they're both fictional anywaze.
Christianity (i.e., religion) and video games are purely ficticious and not real -- only created by people for commerical gain.
And if it makes people rich (i.e., the church(es), game developers) then hey - good on em! Just wish I could make up something that believable to market and cash in on!
you know they should just make one big CnC mod wit this
instead of the muslim extremists and christian extremists going hammer and tongs, we should just give them all computers and let them duke it out in one large online RTS.
they can get the satisfaction of blowing up the enemy and at the same time get the satisfaction of being able to go home at the end of the day.
of course it probably wouldnt work....there'd be crys of foul play and they, being pretty much detached from reality, will seek to blow each other up in real life anyway
You completely misread that. I meant more along the lines of if you believe in something, i.e. doing some action, like a "good deed" or a pilgrimmage, will bring you closer to some god, then suck it up and do it instead of wasting your time pointing fingers and making incoherent theories of how other people's beliefs are messed up.
As for the game or a bunch of hypocritic yaywhos, I couldn't care less. Just some more christian propaganda packaged differently. Pfft, fire and brimstone, door to door church advertisement, intelligent design, disgustingly bloody movies, now PC games... what'll those zany christians come up with next?
What, like Scientology? Now that's how to make some serious cash out of thin air.
"ALL HAIL XENU" etc... Oh no wait, wasn't Xenu the ruler of the Galactic Confederacy... and that makes him the "bad guy" right? Tom if you're on Bit-Tech today could you drop us a mail and confirm this please?
The fact that you added "for real" at the end of your post makes you sound like one of said pot smokers... lol
Personally, I think the game looks entertaining.
Quoted For Truth
As a Christian I think this game sounds like a rather misguided attempt by some marketing "genius" (who neither understands nor respects Christianity) to cash in on a popular series of books.
(I saw the first movie of the series but have no further interest in the books etc.)
