Gaming Religion: Finding Faith in Digital Games

Recording: Gaming Religion: Finding Faith in Digital Games, Mar 13, 2018

Religious themes have supported the story lines of many mainstream games from World of Warcraft to Halo. Gaming has also been described as a spiritual endeavor by avid gamers, and religious groups are increasingly creating and using games to counter religious stereotypes and teach members about core beliefs and practices. This workshop considers how video games can be used to address issues of tolerance, diversity and cultivate civility in our digital culture.
