January was a pretty heavy month for articles, blogs, and news in the geek world. As this column highlights posts that mix spirituality with our geeky habits, I’m proud to share with you the highlights of the month of January 2016 that I found on the net. I hope you check out the various websites and blogs mentioned.

Gaming Articles of the Month

  • If Jesus Christ played video games, which ones would he likely play? Find out from the writers of GameChurch, who give us 2015’s “Games Jesus Loves.” [GameChurch]That-Dragon-Cancer-Build-e58c518-1_14_2016-6_38_23-PM-e1453049281303
  • A Christian game that played like Doom was released some time ago, where players help animals in Noah’s Ark! See what it’s about in Geeks Under Grace’s review of Super 3D Noah’s Ark. [Geeks Under Grace]
  • Those looking for an introspective game that deals with real life and faith need look no further. That Dragon, Cancer, the long-awaited title by Ryan Green about the death of his son and how he got through the dark times, has been released. It’s not only a game, but an experience, and Zachery Oliver of Theology Gaming gives us his thoughts on it. [Theology Gaming]
  • A more detailed review of That Dragon, Cancer that may lead you to pick up this title. The writer explains the emotion and faith that went behind the game. [Geeks Under Grace]
  • I love analyzing video games, so when I saw that Cooper wrote an article dedicated to the process of analyzing video games, I was excited. He talks about themes, mood, allusions, foreshadowing, and other concepts we see in our favorite games. [Geeks Under Grace]
  • Did you ever think The Binding of Issac had a lot of religious imagery to it? Maurice breaks down every single one of these images with his Backloggery Beatdown of games he’s utterly conquered. [Geeks Under Grace]
