As stated by others above, these people simply don't excel when it comes to video games.

Just because they aren't video game savvy doesn't mean all Christians are the same. Whopper744 wrote: Can we please have some sort of rule about this on the site? As a Christian it's not cool to see how so many on here has basically called us stupid. This isn't the place for thing kind of stuff, it's a place to talk about video games. Can we please lock this thread or something at least? I hope none of this was referring to my comment. I mean it is generally a thing in a lot of ideologies (religious, political or otherwise) where people will only take in stuff from within their own spheres. It's also something which I personally try to avoid like the plague. My thoughts on a news site that calls itself "Christian news" covering this sort of topic are the same as they would be for one that was "progressive news", "conservative news", "secular news" and so on. I get why those sites would exist for covering those topics but I don't like the idea of a narrow viewed slant on a range of topics. It's unsettling. It just pushes everyone further apart, it's really stupid. And yes, it's unsettling because of anecdotes like that person I mentioned who refused to enjoy music if it wasn't "Christian". Immediate disapproval because I couldn't say what the artists particular beliefs were, very strange, I couldn't care less about that sort of crap. I'd have the same view if the person asked whether the artist voted progressive or conservative although TBH I doubt anyone would ever ask that. If you close yourself off like that then you're going to have a very distorted view of the rest of the world, particularly if it's news. And it's something that happens across the board and it seems to be happening even here in this thread. Calls for the thread to be locked. Seriously guys and not just the people on this forum, across the political, religious and whatever divide there is. Just grow some balls.
