Are these [video games] evil or is it a battle between good and evil and won't preoccupy the mind. I notice he [the husband] gets up early in the morning to play before work or church even! Some games are the Starcraft ones (sounds like witchcraft), Heroes of Might & Magic., Lords, etc. Some of the pictures are so evil!

Starcraft? Witchcraft? Heheeh... funny.

I wouldn't call videogame addiction evil, but possibly problematical.

As for the word \"starcraft\" ominously resembling \"witchcraft\" -- what about handicraft (hey, don't those women have what are called \"sewing circles,\" just as witches' covens are called \"circles\"?) or woodcraft (hey, that one even starts with a \"w\" too!)? What about Kraft Cheese 'n' Macaroni, is it evil too?

While the husband's videogame hobby may (and I emphasize *MAY*) be a problem, Jill's hypersensitivity to links with E*V*I*L though linguistic coincidence is pretty hard to take seriously.

No, Heroes of Might and Magic is not evil. It is addictive enough that it ought to come with a warning sticker ... but that's about it.

I wouldn't say, given her context, it's a problem...at least yet. It's not interfering with his life...just his wife's view of it. Of course, I'm assuming early to be 5 or 6 in the morning. If we're talking, like, Midnight, and getting hours and hours in, yeah, it's a problem.

Are you Jack Thompson's wife or something?

:p Starcraft isn't about magic using starlight. It's about space warfare. No need for shallow condemnation at all! IF you have a beef with the space warfare thing, that's OK, but none of this wrangling over "-craft" and "evil pictures".

David D.G.:

Actually, I think DemonBuster has condemned all of those things. Because they sound like witchcraft. Maybe even Kraft dinner.

This sounds like a nice, quiet husband escaping from Fundycrapland every chance he gets. A nice relaxing diversion from stupidia.

Maybe he should just stop going to church so he has more free time to play games. He won't need to get up early anymore. There, problem solved!

Jill, those evil pictures were probably of the bad guys your husband is fighting in-game. I'm not sure why you think him fighting the forces of evil is a bad thing.

As mentioned above, “woodcraft” sounds even more like witchcraft.

You know who does woodcraft, Jill? Carpenters.

You know who was a carpenter, Jill? Jesus.

So basically, Christians are all witches. QED.
