Sister I had the brother show me World of Warcraft, and walk me through it while he explained. I saw no benefit in using this as a vehicle to preach the Gospel. I asked how many has he seen converted? He said no one, but he has planted seeds. I then asked how many seeds have been planted in you since you been playing this game? His eyebrow went up, eyes got big, and all he said was "whoa."

Exactly!

I used to play Doom at a job I worked at in the 90's. All of us did, especially the boss. It was a work hard/play hard atmosphere... but I had to stop playing that game.

Doom is (or was) a game where you shoot monsters. Seems innocent enough, but you are also bombarded with satanic imagery.
