    how can doom1 get such a fair mark ( 41% ) in comparison...

    i guess its cos ur killing the hell spawn... shouldnt we be forgiving ?

    either way im not gonna try and argue with religion. Too many people lead their lives by it...

    you cant directly relate a bad dream to a video game! it could've been caused by many other things, like the high level of violence in the bible, or something similar...
    'Surely I come quickly' - Rev. 22:20 - i dunno, i saw it on a badge n it made me laugh...

    i dream about mowing down old grannies with my easy listening turned up on the stereo, then hacking down some coppers with a chainsaw. then i wake up and there's this sticky patch on my bed sheet.

    Loopy, sorry, didn't mean to come across so harsh.

    I agree that it should perhaps be re-titled, and I think his main driving point is how suitable those games are from within a devout Christian context.

    I have no problem with this, if his thoughts are that a particular game is not suitable for devout Christians then that's fair enough, he's providing a guide for those with similar beliefs.

    I think that with religion in general in decline, and with it having far less influence on everyday life than it used too, that devotees of any religion would welcome a guide to what would be suitable for their tastes. It's just a highly specialised review aimed at a particular market.

    As for the dreams, I think games CAN impact your dreams. Play enough of a game and it will bleed through into your subconcious, especially if you're stuck somewhere in the game. One of the missions in Mafia crept into one of my dreams once... and I've dreamt of actually paintballing in the Opposing Worlds level of UT.

    After a particularly intense all day DM session on UT with Zak he went out to dinner and was straffing instead of walking and even trying to left'click to switch from knife to chopsticks... ask him about it!

    true nuff, i've had the occasional game-related dream when i've just picked up a new game & played it solid for a few days!

    also, "just popping down the shops" becomes slightly hazardous after a few hours of GTA3 / vice city cos u occasionally get the urge to ram ppl ut of the way...managed not to succumb to this one tho cos i'd get killed if i got home with the bonnet missing & said "GTA made me do it!!"

    praps a bible-based RPG would be more suitable, eg. moses has to get the israelites across the desert from egypt to the promised land with various satan-based obstacles in his way.
    energy provided in the form of manna capsules
    various plagues & boils sent to harass u on your journey & cures for these found from prayer energy (<--nicked that idea from B&W)
    bonus points for destroying golden calfs, burning bushes hidden en-route which offer up secrets....multiplayer pits u against an opponent who plays as the angry pharoah & his mob....i could go on!

    anyone got the phone no. for eidos R&D
    if it ain't broke...fix it till it is
