As many of you have no doubt picked up on I am a Christian, saved by grace not by works least any man should boast. What will be less well known is that I am also a gamer; in fact, I’ve been a gamer longer than I’ve been a Christian. The latter being nine years and the former only about four or five. As gamers go I’m quite a keen one, I’ve registered 300 hours on just one game (over a course of three years), I’ve topped my fair share of scoreboards on multiplayer games and I follow the latest news in the gaming industry with interest. As hobbies go it’s quite a main one.
It is to my shame then that it was only last Christmas that a question suddenly occurred to me: how should I game as a Christian?
