Christians Play Skyrim - Anvil & Hammer Blog & Podcast

Have you ever wanted to see how Christians would react in video game worlds?  Well Sarah and myself sought to play Skyrim: The Elder Scrolls V from a Christian perspective. In this unique playthrough we have confined ourselves to these rules: 

THE RULES

1. Can't use magic 
2. Can't break the 10 Commandments 
3. Must tell people about Jesus

    Hi Thomas, it was brought to my attention that in Skyrim, Alduin (the bad guy) represents Jesus. This is something to be aware of. If you are uncomfortable with aspects of the game it is best to use those things to start Bible conversations and explain your perspective to your children so they know the reasons behind your concerns. Ultimately if your conscience is grieved you should not allow your children to play the game. Hope that helps. Thanks for the question!
