SOMETHING FOR YOU 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS GUYS

Until you get into this reblog, it is going to sound off-the-wall, but please give it a shot.

Grand Theft Auto stands as one of the greatest franchises in the video game industry.  The open world format was introduced to most of us through the series, even though it wasn’t necessarily the first to use the formula.  Over the years, the series has grown and even matured more than many others.

What makes the game so great?  Besides the almost unbridled ability to do what you want whenever you want, it’s the sense of power you have as a character.  Most of the time, said power has to do with being able to rain down destruction on the numerous NPCs which litter the landscape using the obscene amount of weapons available. (continued here)

The above is a “reblog” of an “old” post written by Sunrie. What’s the post about? Well, let’s try to get at that by considering the meaning of an acronym, NPC.

NPC => A non-player character or NPC is any video game character that is controlled directly by the computer.

In Grand Theft Auto, the object seems to be to abuse the NPCs, and to make it easy, the NPCs are unarmed.

Do you think of yourself as a powerless NPC? Do you want to think of yourself as a powerless NPC? No? Then finish reading ‘s post.

Note: I don’t approve of games such as Grand Theft Auto, but that does not mean I am going to pretend such games don’t exist. To discourage each other from sinning, we must discuss what makes a sin a sin.

If Grand Theft Auto is what it is described to be, then its designers would teach us to reduce the mass of men and women to NPCs, soulless shells of men and women who exist solely for the enjoyment of the players. In America, do we want to think of each other that way?

Once we start thinking of our fellows as NPCs, we forget what the Apostle Paul told us to do.

Philippians 2:3-4 Good News Translation (GNT)

Don’t do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast, but be humble toward one another, always considering others better than yourselves. And look out for one another’s interests, not just for your own.

  1. Great Post Citizen Tom! We let our children play violent games where they kill repeatedly and deny the fact that we are conditioning them to think of killing as nothing more than a game. God bless you!

    1. loopyloo305 – Thanks for the comment.

      Because of the news media, we have trouble discussing what matters. Journalists drag our discussions to sex and violence, but few of the people playing Grand Theft Auto will pick up a gun and start shooting their neighbors and raping women. That’s not really the problem with such a game.

      Why do we play games? If games serve a purpose, then they must help to make us better people. Grand Theft Auto is not so instructive. Instead, in praise of pride and power, it teaches a lies. The time we waste upon such games keeps us from interacting with our neighbors or doing anything useful.

      When parents use worthless games and entertainment to babysit their children, for the sake of a few minutes peace, they make their children less loving — hence more difficult to love. Don’t we want to instill grace and truth into our children? Then why do we sit them in front of games and entertainment that teaches them to be merciless and dishonest?

      1. Games can be wonderful, I agree it is not the game, it is the neglect of the parents and that lets them assume that violence is okay, and the continued playing without and other instruction leads to a heart that is hardened. It is like violence in any form, abuse, war, anything, it has an affect on the mind!
