rebelling against low expectations

Should Christian teens play violent video games?


SETH WRITES: Should we as Christians play video games that are deemed violent (e.g., Call of Duty, Halo, Battlefield, etc.)? Should we even spend our time on video games at all?

Video games aren’t reality, I know, and may or may not affect our real-life decisions, but they are a significant and demanding part of our society today. There are so many genres in the video game industry, and sometimes it’s hard to discern whether certain video games are “bad” or “good.”

The Bible tells us not to waste our time, and really, ANY type of video game, “bad” or “good”, is just a waste of time, is it not? So should Christians even play video games?
