I play games like Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 online where your screen name can have a tiny avatar next to it. Would it be inappropriate to pick a picture of a saint for this? On one hand, you’re bringing Christianity into public media where it has little exposure; though I’m concerned that people wouldn’t take it seriously, or that it would distract them from the game at hand.
As a fellow L4D player, I say do it!
By all means it sounds like a splendid idea. If it distracts them from the game it will be distracting them to think about the saint, and thus God, which cannot be a bad thing.
sounds like a good idea! there is no wrong place to share your faith with the world.
And if it distracts your enemies, all the better to get your frag up
Please, the only way it’s gonna distract them is if they’re blatantly anti-religious jerks. :rolleyes: If a ton of gamers I’ve met can get away with using pentagrams, anarchy symbols, and gangsta images then you can get away with a complete opposite. It’s a free world (in-game and offline ).
Who are you going to post up as the patron saint of zombie slaying?
St. Michael of course!
Why would you post an avatar of a Saint in a game which promote war, death, & gore. Especially with a title like Left 4 Dead:shrug:? I think you shouldn’t to it.
Answer: Cuz it’s a game. Nuff said.
That’s good. While I was reading the thread I was thinking “I hope that guy picks an appropriately action-oriented saint because it would be really weird to go around killing zombies with a St. Francis avatar.” Michael fits much better.
