Rationalising video games

Video games are so unrealistic it’s hard to imagine why there are people out there dedicated to stamping them out on the basis that they cause crime.

Not only is gravity in Mario’s world in an iterative state of flux – it’s completely implausible that an Italian plumber could run around bashing his head into blocks of bricks. Bricks that are suspended by nothing more than skyhooks…

Cracked set its readers the task of bringing reality back to the gaming world.

And ghosts are totally irrational…

No Duck Hunt is complete without a PETA protest…

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.
