I haven't read this yet, just want to answer the question posed in the topic - no. Edit: for clarification, my answer is NO, we shouldn't keep religion out of games.
Killing God in Xenogears was a very memorable thing to a young teenage me. Religion is rarely portrayed in a good light in games. Whether it's some generic made-up church, cult, or an actual religion being represented. They're always scheming or plotting world domination (just like real life huehue) - no religion should be out of bounds. And honestly, as a non-religious person, I really like some religious themes, especially in my roleplaying games of yore. They usually make interesting bad guys, or late game bad guys turned good.
i couldnt be arsed reading all that, i have a hang over and will read it later, but my answer is no.
this guy makes an awesome argument 'IT OFFENDS MEEEEEE!!!!!!!'
This is like asking if Mickey Mouse, SuperMan, etc... should be kept out of video games
After his showing in Superman 64, yes Superman should still be kept out of video games.
Fuck that noise, I want Gilgamesh, Mithras, Ra, Tiamat, Anansi, and Hanuman as playable characters.
While skipping the article, and going for the question, I'll say negative. Keep it around. If it's a game I dig, I could give a shit what it's about in terms of 'Mythos'. I'll play it to death if it tickles my inner gamer.
I think these people are severely underestimating Hindu nationalists' capacity for fascism and other forms of asshatery.
I suspect this game is well on its way to causing riots.
I want to play as Bad Jesus; turning wine into water and such.
You can play as Ra. There's also a little Chinese monkey god name Sun Wukong.
Did a GIS on Bad Jesus.
Just like Jesus, my post had a second coming.
Four armed blue bitch with tig ol bitties for the win, John.
I read nothing, just saw the picture and it's awsome. If it's any good I'll buy it.
Okay, online multplayer, so I won't be buying it. Anyway, fuck it, throw in Mo' and Jesus and everything's square. Boss characters could be Odin, Chronos, Bramha, Yaweh, and Allah.
Nice. I bet the game is educational, giving a brief story of the characters. I also want to play as Quetzalcoatl!
Without religion assassins creed is nothing
Is there a Vatican I and Vatican II... playable skin and story?
