One in particular came out this week, Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword, (called the greatest Zelda game ever!!) nintendo has made it mandatory for your character to pray to a goddess in order to save your progress. This is idolatry, and it is alarming to me that children are required to join, be indoctrinated, and be actively involved in a religion in order to participate in a game with most of this going on unbeknownst to parents. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoOd6Li-gaE
I had been looking forward to playing the game, but when I saw that my character had to pray to a so called goddess just to save my progress, I turned the game off. Now how many people will be willing to do that after paying $50? At the very least we need a new rating category for religious references! Let me give a list of games, just the ones I briefly played, that follow this same scheme.
