Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is giving the trolls and haters some attention for a change. Normally we ignore the haters. Normally we ignore the trolls. I felt like giving them some attention for a change. Why would I do that? For a couple of reasons. One – I am open minded. Two – I believe in honest, transparent, and genuine communications. Three – I believe in challenging others mentally. Four – I care about others. Five – I want everyone to get better. Six – I want them to turn from their evil ways and come to a relationship with Jesus Christ. Am I throwing pearls to pigs?

It does not shock me to see all kinds of evil things said about me, and everyone else associated with Family Friendly Gaming from haters. It saddens me that they are not capable of recognizing their own hatred. I want to be very clear. I do not hate them. I do not hate them when they are saying all kinds of horrible things about me. I find it disturbing that they do not connect their entertainment choices with how wicked their tongues are. I am shocked they are not performing self-analysis. Going to other haters to reinforce their radical, extremist, zealot beliefs is not reality. Trying to diminish people of faith exposes them even more. I am not insulting them by speaking these truths in love. I want the haters to stop hating.

Some of the comments that I find most interesting is the disbelief in the opinion that evolution is a religious belief. There are plenty of resources that discuss this opinion that can easily be found online for anyone with an open mind and willing to listen. I did so and came to an informed decision. Another popular complaint is this game rated higher than that game. We have said for a great many years we give a diverse opinion from the worldly gaming sites. We also believe in obedience to God as opposed to rebellion. So our opinions refuse to join in the rebellion. Another fun comment is related to games are just to have fun. This has been dealt with in the Video Game Lies book, and in the magazine multiple times. Again anyone open minded can take the time to research that if they are open minded.
The drive by complainers are not doing their due diligence when the answers to their questions have already been provided. Maybe my expectations of them is too high. Maybe I give them too much credit. Ultimately the haters are proving me completely and totally right about their entertainment choices. All of their venom and hatred are not making the world a better place. We focus on as many positive things as we can. That makes the world a better place. I was once like them, and wonder why they cannot celebrate my diversity.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.


God bless,

The level of company propaganda is getting worse. Each and every one of the major companies that had press conferences proved they are not listening to families. The level of macabre and morbid content remained high (Nintendo was an exception, and Square Enix did decent). There were no Christian video games at any of those press conferences yet again. How can they listen when that has been asked for by the super majority of Americans for years? The truth is they do not listen. The truth is they spew propaganda at these rigged press conferences. They do not care about us.

Family Friendly Gaming has told these companies in emails, phone calls, and in person conversations what our close to nine million readers want. Not one of them provided this year. This is not the first time this has happened. It has been going on for four to five years now. They get up there and claim they listen and provide for everyone. NO YOU DON’T! My ancestors would have called them forked tongued devils. That is being nice to them as well. The E3 lies are something that continue to bother me because we stand for truth and integrity. Something that is missing from too many of these E3 liars.

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is bringing back a popular series on the dark side of gaming. Thanks to your feedback this series is continuing. This time we are exploring the practice of black listing. Are you familiar with this practice? It is a way for video game companies to discriminate against those they do not like, disagree with, and/or want to punish. Too many in PR and Marketing view the gaming media as unpaid extensions of their marketing department. They view us as being there to make them money. They have this entitlement mentality that sabotages honest and transparent communications. When we say something they don’t like they knee jerk react.

The discrimination against Christians and conservatives in the video game media realm is entrenched. Family Friendly Gaming experienced this and has written about it. Nintendo is the best example. Nintendo decided to attack traditional Biblical marriage, and embrace the blowing in the wind changing standards of man. This obvious rebellion against God was bad, what was worse was their double speak where they claim to provide for all people. They obviously do not provide for Christians, as history has shown. They extended their discrimination to black list Family Friendly Gaming because we dared point out this fact. Nintendo could have engaged in the dialogue. Nintendo could have apologized for their systemic discrimination against Christians. Nintendo could have tried to debate it. Instead they showed themselves to be petty, and small minded. This is after Family Friendly Gaming had done all kinds of things to help them out and make them tons of money for nine years.

Say one thing someone within a company does not like and you could find yourself being shunned. Exercise your First Amendment right of Freedom of Religion, and Freedom of Press to be treated like a third class citizen. The lack of diversity of thought within the video game industry is closing in on Holly Weird levels. It makes me wonder if these people in these companies are violating the First Amendment. Are they violating our civil rights? Their behavior is bad by any enlightened system we follow. Sadly there is not punishment for their black listing behavior. There is no appeals process to their acting like judge, jury, and executioner. There is no checks and balance on their faulty decision making process. So this evil, vile, and wicked behavior continues in the video game industry. What solutions can you see this major problem?

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

The BIBLE Game on the Playstation 2 (PS2), and Xbox is a serious contender for Game of the Year on both systems. The gameplay is a mix between Mario Party, and a trivia game. From the start the player(s) (up to four can play in a game) are allowed to pick from a diverse cast of characters. Then the hip game show host appears for the game of: "Do Unto Others." A game board has quite a few boxes with different point values. Select a box, and get either a mini game for yourself, all players, or a trivia question (please note all trivia questions are from the Old Testament only). The second turn the player can pick again or pass to the next player. The reason to pass is one of those boxes is - The Wrath of God. A wrath of God will take away all points that player acquired during that round. Hence there can be some amazing strategy involved.

Graphically this game has bright, and colorful graphics. The character models are not the most advanced on the market, but they are also not hideous either. They are quaint. This game definitely encourages a relationship with God without being preachy, and without shoving it down anyone's throat.

The BIBLE Game ROCKS! The music is from a plethora of diverse Christian musicians. Crave Entertainment picked some of the best songs from current Christian artists like Toby Mac, Newsboys, and Jeremy Camp. The voice acting is done well, and the game show host is humorous at times. The awesome sounds, and music was the first reaction this reviewer had of this game.

This game can be replayed until the cows come home, or until Crave Entertainment releases a sequel. This version of the BIBLE Game is selling for $19.99 as well. This has got to be the best game for that amount of money on the market as of press time. Frugal spenders will get their money's worth with this game.

The gameplay on this game is spot on perfect. The balance of the mini games, and trivia questions is perfect. Some of those trivia questions can seriously humble the player, especially when one puts the game on the higher settings. Do not worry though because on the easy settings most of the questions are answerable. They are multiple choice as well. The controls work well. A couple of mini games take a few times of practice to understand how the game works, but once that is attained they are smooth sailing.

This game is amazingly family friendly. The only docking is for a mini game where snakes are shot with a staff from the Old Testament. The music is safe, the voice acting is safe, the trivia questions are very appropriate, and it has great teachings in it. This game was a joy to play, and we are still playing it. We seriously want some sequels to this game. The more the better in this reviewers opinion.

It is very encouraging to see a game like this out on the market. This is the kind of game that the video game industry was created for. It is our hope and prayer that more video games like this are released. This game receives our much desired Family Friendly Gaming seal of approval.

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is bringing back a popular series on the dark side of gaming. Will there be more issues in this series in the future? That is up to you. If there is a massive support for this series and we can come up with new ideas to write about then the answer is yes. If there is not much support, and we can come up with no new ideas then the answer is no. It is a scary time in our world and in our country. There are those that have embraced the redefinitionist movement and embraced redefined words, morals, ethics, deeds, institutions, roles, and more. In almost every case those that have embraced these redefinitions are actually openly rebelling against God. They try to terrorize anyone who stands up for God. They attempt to silence anyone who embraces traditional definitions of words, morals, ethics, deeds, institutions, roles, and more. We are seeing this in the video game industry as well. In some ways it has gotten even more scary as there are people actually embracing darkness in the video game industry.

Look at how many of the “popular” games on the worldly gaming websites and magazines have you play the bad guy. Look at how many of the new “AAA” titles have morally ambiguous choices the player is expected to enact. It used to be a few evil, vile and wicked games here and there. It has become a trend where evil is being celebrated, and good is being shunned. What does that do to the brain of the players that immerse themselves in this radicalized belief set? What kind of punishment will God doll out to our nation for this open disobedience and rebellion? What punishments did God give out to past civilizations for this kind of dark behaviour? Why would anyone want to bring that down on our heads? What can be done to correct the course? How do we get the entire industry to move away from celebrating darkness? Family Friendly Gaming constantly tries to educate everyone to join us into the light. We won’t force you. We won’t coerce you. We won’t brow beat you. If you choose that path that leads to destruction we will pray you turn from those wicked ways.

I talk to a variety of different kinds of gamers to understand where they are coming from. I talk to a variety of people in video game companies at different levels. I talk to a variety of PR and Marketing people to see what trends they are seeing. The troubling trend of embracing darkness over light is strong in the video game industry. I openly admit this trend is scary on multiple different fronts. I have sounded the alarm. You choose how to react to it.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is answering an important question. Are we Moral Guardians? Is Family Friendly Gaming a Moral Guardian? What do you think? The quick and easy answer is we are not Moral Guardians. We freely give out opinions that show diversity of thought from the corrupt gaming media outlets, and the radicals trying to make this industry extremely liberal. In fact if there is any websites claiming we are Moral Guardians you might want to look closely at them. My experience is these accusers are the real Moral Guardians.

Our standardized approach to the video game industry based on honesty, transparency, and hope is a threat to any hardcore haters. There are also those that hate us because we submit to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Persecution against Christians has been around for a long time. There are also those who hate us because they perceive us as being conservative. In reality we are moderates politically. When they keep trying to redefine the scale to move it farther and farther to the left they then are guilty of attempting to redefine us. Family Friendly Gaming has stood up against the redefinition movement for a long time now.

We do not hide our lights. We are open and honest about who we are. We give our opinions on entertainment based on the foundation of the Holy Bible. Our opinions on a particular product should have no impact on your enjoyment of it. If you feel guilty about objectifying women, spreading hatred, spreading violence, or some other evil that is between you and God. We are not judging you. Doctors tell you certain things are bad for your health. You then make the choice to listen or to ignore. We do not brow beat anyone into making choices that are better for their eternal souls. We give you the information and you decide.

Family Friendly Gaming brings a lot of diversity of thought to the extremely slanted and imbalanced video game media outlets. We are constantly looking at products from a variety of different perspectives. We present those in a professional manner that you can embrace and celebrate, or ignore. The attempts to silence us from real and true Moral Guardians does harm to the entire video game industry. I expect these emotional toddlers to throw a tantrum when this article is published.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is pointing out a serious problem that is happening in society today. This article will touch upon the horrible, evil, vile, and wicked war on men. That is not the complete focus of this article though. The war on men is a serious problem going on in our culture today. The attacks on these men over and over again is extremely troubling for anyone who cares about freedom. The attitude coming from the extreme left is an attitude of unforgiveness. This is alarming as well. We have all sinned and fallen short. We all make mistakes. We all put our foots in our mouths. When you fail to forgive then you will not be forgiven. Which makes this even more concerning.

It is extremely scary that the entertainment culture has gotten so hostile to men, Christians, and conservatives. The constant attacks from too many in the entertainment industry is creating a backlash against them. There are people looking up anything that was said, or written by people. These busy bodies will go back ten years to find something someone said or did. Then they expect there to be outrage. Then they expect the person in question to be fired. What lesson are they teaching everyone? If you say or do something the extreme radicals on the far left does not like they will not allow you to work. You will have to become homeless living under a bridge because of a mistake that was made a decade ago. Where is the forgiveness from the entertainment industry? Where is the forgiveness from the radicals on the far left?

One of the ways we learn is by making the wrong choices. That is part of being human. The modern day Pharisees and Sadducees are holding us to an unrealistic standard. It is a standard they themselves do not follow. They are trying to force everyone from saying things that go against their rebellion against God. Obey God, and they want to ruin you. Do the right thing, and they want to destroy you. What kind of ethics and morals is that? The level of venom and hatred attacking those obeying God is horrible. How can they sleep at night spreading such destruction? I refuse to join them in this kind of behavior. Instead I take the path less chosen. I forgive them of their attacks. I forgive them of the destruction they create. Why? Because I want to be forgiven for my mistakes. I forgive so I will be forgiven.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is asking a very important question in relation to the video game industry. We know all about the corruption in the video game industry. We know all about the swamp that needs to be drained. We know about the issues with the ESRB. Have you thought about the adult only nature of industry events like E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo)? If you are under eighteen years old you are not allowed into events like E3 without special approval. So why is E3 adult only? If you have ever been to an E3 event you know this is not a family friendly event. The E3 event is supposed to be the Super Bowl of video games. What does this say about the video game industry as a whole?

If you watched the press conferences before the E3 event started you probably noticed a plethora of bad content. You probably heard quite a few people who need their mouths washed out with soap. So why are these people so salty? What is their beef? Why do they feel they need to be as mean, hate filled, and nasty as possible with their language? Why aren’t they professional with their language? At their age why don’t they grow up? Why are they acting immature? Why are they so angry? Is it because they drown themselves in video games with evil, demonic, wicked, and vile content? Is it because they surround themselves with the macabre and morbid? Have they been infected in the worst way possible? What reasons do you think there are?

I want to go back to the final question in the first paragraph of this article. The adult only nature of E3 tells me this is what the powers that be in the video game industry want. They do not want family friendly games. They do not want Christian friendly games. They do not want kid friendly games. They hate things that are wholesome, good, and honorable. They support the vile, wicked, and evil things. They support pride over humility. They support gross over good. They support immature over mature. They support bad over good. They support anger over peace. They support hate over love. They support greed over charity. They support death over life. They support rebellion over obedience. It took some years away from the propaganda of this event for me to be able to see it clearly. Why do you think the video game industry has become adult only?

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is shocked that Nintendo has come out and attacked marriage. One radical (Tye Marini from Mesa, Arizona) stirred up social Internet circuits on a campaign to radically change Tomodachi Life. What did he want? He wanted Nintendo to redefine marriage in this Nintendo 3DS game to fit his extremist views on homosexuality. He wanted to play homosexual in the video game. His campaign was recognized by Nintendo of America in their statement on May 9th.

“Nintendo is Committed to Fun and Entertainment for Everyone

Redmond, Wash. -- We apologize for disappointing many people by failing to include same-sex relationships in Tomodachi Life. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to change this game’s design, and such a significant development change can’t be accomplished with a post-ship patch. At Nintendo, dedication has always meant going beyond the games to promote a sense of community, and to share a spirit of fun and joy. We are committed to advancing our longtime company values of fun and entertainment for everyone. We pledge that if we create a next installment in the Tomodachi series, we will strive to design a game-play experience from the ground up that is more inclusive, and better represents all players.

-- Nintendo of America“

Nintendo immediately drew fire from the super majority of Americans who do not want marriage redefined. Nintendo also faces some major hypocrisy. When have they provided for Christians? In fact they have demanded Christian images be removed from games (crosses taken off tombstones). They have denied licenses to companies making Christian games (remember Wisdom Tree). Nintendo has a long history of discrimination against Christians. For a decade they have been asked to include a church in Animal Crossing. They have been asked to put God in their games instead of a false goddess. Nintendo continues to fail in terms of providing for Christians.

Yet Nintendo has never bothered to apologize to Christians for all of the slights. Why is that? Why is their culture so hostile to Christians? I guess Christians are not part of the everyone they are talking about. Every single time we ask Nintendo to be inclusive of Christians they completely ignore it. Other organizations have made the same request, and Nintendo ignores them as well. Yet one radical stirs up a militant redefining group who attacks Christians and they quickly issue an apology. Talk about a major double standard.

Nintendo is completely wrong. They can not pick one side of a hot button issue and provide for both sides. Putting redefined marriage into a game is going to offend billions. So they will make a few people happy, and offend many more. Nintendo would have been much wiser in keeping silent on this issue. Because now they have opened themselves up to all kinds of problems. They have attacked traditional marriage. They are admitting they arrogantly think they know better than billions who have accepted the definition of marriage for thousands of years. Nintendo is saying they do not want money from every single person who believes in traditional marriage. Their apology slaps traditional marriage folks right in the face. How will Nintendo provide for traditional marriage folks?

World Vision recently took a stance like Nintendo and it hurt them. Chick-Fil-A took a traditional marriage stance and it helped them financially. If Nintendo cares about their business they will take note of what has happened with these two companies. One radical is not going to keep their business going over the long term. When will Nintendo issue an apology to Christians? BTW will Tomodachi Life include a church, pastor and/or priest?

Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is sounding the alarm on a very important issue within the video game industry. No it is not how men are being discriminated against. No it is not how conservatives are being discriminated against. Both of those are very important issues that need to be corrected within the video game industry. This article is not even about the rampant corruption within the video game industry that must be systematically dismantled. This issue is the discrimination against Christians. Family Friendly Gaming has written about this before. This issue is nothing new. The evil, vile, and wicked haters must stop their horrendous deeds. They must correct their mistakes. The must turn from their dark ways. They must do this immediately. They must do this for a better video game industry.

We have noticed here at Family Friendly Gaming how the attacks on Christians within the video game industry have gotten worse. We have noticed Christians being treated like third class citizens within the video game industry. We have heard from fellow believers who are mistreated within the video game industry. Family Friendly Gaming has experiences a wide array of discrimination from those claiming to be tolerant of diversity. They do not tolerate Christians though. They attack us. They persecute us. They treat us like third class citizens. They tell us to sit on the back of the bus only. No front row seating for Christians within the video game industry. They lie to us. They break their word. They prove they have no honor. They expect us to join them in corruption. We stand for truth, honesty, keeping our word, having honor, having morals, and staying clean.

These attacks on Christians bother me personally and professionally. I do not like them. I do not feel they have a place in the video game industry. Christian gamers have a lot to offer the entire video game industry. There have been great games from Wisdom Tree. There have been wonderful games on the Personal Computer (PC). There were cool games like The Bible Game, and Larryboy and the Bad Apple. CCGR, Clash Entertainment, Christian Games Now, and Family Friendly Gaming have faithfully served the video game industry for many years. Those accomplishments are just at the tip of my tongue. There have been plenty more that have come from the Christian video game community. When will the evil haters acknowledge the truth? When will they turn from lies, propaganda, and fake news stories? I look forward to the day when Christians are celebrated within the video game industry. I look forward to the day when the entire industry shuns anyone who discriminates against Christians. What needs to be done to get to that shining city on a hill?

Kid Icarus Uprising has the player taking on the role of an angel. This angel Pit serves a goddess. Yes Nintendo has gone all goddess crazy in their recent games (Zelda Skyward Sword being another one). Pit is fighting the underworld to stop Medussa - a dark goddess. Not really clear why this was missed in the regionalization with over 80% of Americans believing in God, and not goddesses. Maybe Nintendo is targeting that less than 20% only with Kid Icarus Uprising.

...

The spiritual aspects of Kid Icarus Uprising are what bother me the most. I expected the violence. I did not expect all the goddess religious teachings. Nor did I expect all the idol content. I already mentioned the lack of regionalization in this area. There are so many creative ways this could have been handled for the American audience. She could have been an arch-angel fighting off demons. It is my hope and prayer that Nintendo regionalizes the religious content in future games.
