BFME, great game, lasted me for quite a long time, but eventually I got bored with it. I kept being angry that mordor and Isenguard got all the good siege equipment, but my mother didn't want me playing them because they were evil. Eventually I got tired of this, and played them anyway. I always tried to keep it a secret, reasoning that it was just a game, and it didn't matter what I did. I got to the point where it didn't matter to me who I was playing, it didn't matter if what I was doing would ethically be in question.
In retrospect, I probably would have not done this, if only to avoid that one question.
My mother finally caught me, she didn't punish me, she didn't scold me, yet she did the most punishing thing she could.
She asked me if I would have done the same things, if Jesus was sitting next to me.
If I would have butchered the elves men and dwarves, if he was beside me.
This made me realize, I let my lust overwhelm my ethics, instead of a golden calf, it was a golden console. To this day when there's a good or evil decision in a game, I always pick the good, because being evil in a game is just one wrung away from being evil in real life.
So I ask you, would you play GTA while Jesus was sitting next to you?
And is there a Golden Console in your life?
