Holy Headshot, Batman!
What new hypocrisy will Christians think of next? They preach 'Love Thy Neighbour', and then bring out a video game like Left Behind: Eternal Forces.
The synopsis on GameSpy reads:
Based on the renowned series of Christian-faith novels about the aftermath of the Rapture and the lives left behind in the ensuing turmoil after those who are saved by their faith in God are gone. Left Behind: Eternal Forces will put players in command of the apocalyptic battles raging in the streets of New York City between the angelic Tribulation Forces and the demonic Global Community Peacekeepers during the End of Days. Gamers will participate in events from the Left Behind book series in single player mode and battle to capture territory from other players in the multi-player online game mode.But what does this marketing blurb really mean? Well, you play a man of god who must convert the infidels (i.e. Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists and Gays) before the coming apocalypse. If you can't convert them, what do you do? Blow them away, of course. But don't forget to say 'Praise the Lord' and pray a little afterwards. Cos that makes it all okay.
The good news is, in the multiplayer mode you can command the forces of good, or the forces of the antichrist. I know which side i'd play. Do you?
