Well, I think that reloigious games are a very good idea, because there is only ONE true religion, and that is CHRISTIANITY, and all other religions are false (including catholicism), and the Word of God and Jezus have to be spread, and if games can help that, it is very GOOD!
Wow, I check up on this place for the first time in months, and there's a *religious post*!!
<speachless clappy-hands joy>
If you want a deep plot, religions can be a great basis for those, because they almost always focus on an epic battle between good and evil. That and it saves you having to actually *think* about the plot, lol, so you get more time to work on building a half decent game!
Problem generally with making games based on Bible stories is that by their nature, they're not really *meant* to be based on human achievement, which makes them pretty pointless. A few examples:
-Abraham chases after marauders who've kidnapped his buddy and relative Lot. With a fraction of the soldiers, all looks helpless. Oh look! God helps, so they win!
-Egyptians chasing Hebrews, situation is bleak! Oh look! The red sea parts, the chariot wheels fall off, and every single egyptian soldier drowns! Success!
-Countless hugely one-sided battles against pagan nations. Oh look! God helps and they win! Yay!
-Saviour of the world appears! He refuses to become king, or fight, and deliberately gets himself killed. *Great* theme for a game.
-Jesus' apostles get banged up in jail! Do we get a cool rescue mission? An incredible escape attempt? No, an angel turns up, loosens their chains, and voila! What great gameplay!
Those are just some ickle examples, some more obscure than others. The point is that a game is a VIDEO ENTERTAINMENT DEVICE. There is nothing entertaining about playing a position where God sorts everything for you.
It may be cool in real life, or as a story, but not as an interactive game.
Some of the underlying plots of religions are incredible, I use them is stories all the time. But games? Not a good idea.
And no, trying to get converts through games is BAAAAD. Go out knock on peoples' doors instead, lol, works for me!
Why does everyone think the bibles nothing but Jesus. Its only half . In fact there are alot of fighting storys in the bible. A Samson game would be awsome. He is the strongest man ever and all... HAHA a Moses game would be hilarious you give plagues then split the ocean into and run away. A Jesus game is pointless he never sins.
what about that other guy? the one who kills that giant with his 'ball sack'. That's from the bible, right? :S

The only way that you could think you're right is if God told you. In which case, you'd be crazy not right.
So, the church told you something and they're automatically right. Talk about brainwashing.
Dude, you're retarded. You obviously know absolutly nothing about Christianity. Try reading a fucking bible you asstard, you might learn alot more than you do from your death metal stars that want to fuck satan up the ass.
Your the retard cussing then sayin to read the bible. You read the bible!
Stop cussing and saying the bible in the same sentence.
You sound like an anti-christ and a hypocrite. You should follow your own advise.
But I unto, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is Gods throane; nor by the earth; for it is his foot stool; neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yes,Yes; No,No; for what so ever is more than these is of the Evil One.
