Video games and community have always gone hand in hand. Whether it’s playing with your friends online, when they come over, LAN parties, or hauling your console over to someone’s house.
Forums used to be big also and that’s where the conversations used to take place, but they are outdated. A new way to chat is called Discord, which connects to your online gaming software like Steam and other applications. It’s a fantastic way to talk with others about video games and other topics, but like everything you have to be careful which ones you join.
Discord consists of groups that have channels, and each channel is often a topic like anime, games, memes, general, etc. It’s my favorite way to hang out online with fellow gamers and Christians since it’s very organized and like a group chat.
I have wanted to start my own but I don’t have the time to keep up with it and be involved in the ones I am a part of. After spending some time in the Discord group, Mighty Grace Positive Gaming, I found that they are committed to caring for their members and have lots of events going on. They have a bible study, play games together like Destiny 2, Guild Wars, World of Warcraft, D&D, and Overwatch. I am a part of their team and we promote each other, so I thought it would be great to have them be Gaming and God’s partnered community. They already have everything set up in regards to having game nights with each other, are very kind, and have bible studies as well which go in line with what we are about here.
If I ever recommend a website, game, community, book or anything else, I myself have tested it out. I would not want to refer my readers to a place where they won’t feel comfortable or have any fun. I do hope you join us, and if you have any questions let me know.
