Learning Morals from games thread.

RE: Learning Morals from games thread.
What I learned from Mass Effect is that you can love two people at war, and it's not true that you can't love the enemy of your friend. You can see people can fight each other for reasons not intended out of malice. I also learned sometimes moral decisions are so fuzzy and complicated, there is no real right or wrong, but perhaps just a better decision. I also saw great beauty in honoring a person's religiousness even if you see his religion as false. That was particularly with the scene with Thane in Mass Effect 3. I also saw the issue of forgiveness and mercy with Garus situation over justice. I also learned the beauty of not being so nationalistic( expressed in humanistic way in the game) but extending your love to other nations( other sentient life forms).

That series would be the legends of legends in gaming were it not for it's horrible ending.

The only thing you are upset about is someone trying to do good. You probably havn't posted anything about people playing video games, but you are quick to silence anyone doing good. You will probably respond with some sort of ironic statement. This is the decaying culture that exists today. It is uncool to do good.

Look, twatchops, if you didn't spend so much time and effort on being a sanctimonious ass, you'd see me posting about people who do good and cool shit. It's just that it has nothing to do with the Bible, so you're not interested.

Also, I made a whole thread about Skyrim, so don't talk about me not posting about video games at all. I just haven't learned any morals from video games, because I'm just old enough to where I was playing an N64 when I would have been forming my beginning morals and my parents thought it was evil, so I learned the same things somewhat younger people did from books. Which I don't think makes what I learned more holy.

I won't apologize for calling out your dribblings.
