Left Behind - the video game for kids

  1. May 31, 2006 #1
    Here's a interesting, and very disturbing, new development from the Left Behind novel people.
    http://www.talk2action.org/story/2006/5/29/195855/959 (warning - disturbing, extremist website)

    You assume this is obviously a hoax, something from the Onion? In that case, even MSNBC fell for it:

    Official website - http://www.leftbehindgames.com/pages/press_room.php

    Our European friends might be surprised to know that this is not a tiny fringe group in the states - the "Left Behind" novels have sold 40 million copies here.

    uhhh.... this did happen already and there wasn't as much as a 30 second news clip on the media.

    haha its funny (yet predictable) how you're acting like this game has already sold 80 billion copies and people are playing it on big screens in churches already and that only extremist WACO types buy the game. And who cares what europeans think. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    It's just highly ironic that it's being marketed to the very same people who usually, very vocally denounce violent video games.

    This game is for people who are "left behind" at school.

    Anyway , even my mother has the series.......:yuck:
