PC Game Reviews

Recommended Games Only

Video games are often derided as conflicting with Christian moral values, and in some cases the way parents are informed about video games paints the medium in an extremely black and white manner. Most of the time, it seems like well intentioned and goodhearted people are simply painting with too broad a brush. I'm not going to argue that games that conflict with Christian teachings don't exist -- they certainly do -- but the truth of the matter is that there are a great many quality games out there that are reasonably compatible with Christianity.

When I review a game and find that it's one of these good, wholesome titles, I mark it with my "seal of a approval". This stamp is visible in listings and on the review itself, making it hard to miss. To make things even easier, I've prepared this page, which lists every game I've marked with this stamp. In my opinion, none of the games here conflict with a Christian worldview to a significant degree.
