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)
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)
3 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. 4 And look out for one another’s interests, not just for your own.
