Well, Final Fantasy XIII for one. The third one. That was the whole point if that story.

In III you also fight a god-like thing called the Darkness. IV I forgot what.

VI and VII both have the final boss go all god-esque.

And in X, Sin is meant to be a god.

That's really pushing the definition of what a God is.
Cloud of Darkness is ambiguous because the game doesn't give enough information about it, but it could count as a God.
IV's final boss is just a normal dude with strong magic.
Kefka and Sephiroth are humans who got in possession of powerful magic.
Sin is not a God, he was created by humans.

Will take your word for it, as I haven't played it.

>In III you also fight a god-like thing called the Darkness. IV I forgot what.
Both of those were conceptual entities. Cloud of Darkness is a fundamental force representing its namesake (its counterpart being the Flood of Light, who the Dark Warriors defeated in FFIII's past), while IV's was the manifestation of a moon man's butthurt.

>VI and VII both have the final boss go all god-esque.
That only strengthens my point. Becoming godlike is not the same as being God.

>And in X, Sin is meant to be a god.
As does this. Being a god is not the same as being God, or being the creator deity. In any case Sin wouldn't apply, it's just an eldritch flesh golem crafted by a human. Hell, you could technically just call it a fiend since it's made entirely of pyreflies.

The problem with ''God'' is that the word has wide variations and different definitions depending on the culture, religion, ideology, interpretation or belief. The truth is that we don't really have a consensus of what God means.

Yeah we do, is it Pagan or is it Gnostic?

we actually do have some semblance of a consensus when it comes to the concept of God

Look up William Lane Craig and his debates, as well as the modern theology scenes

Hence why people like to use the word architect, instead of God.

Tell me, what stops someone from creating a religion right now where the concept of God is completely different from standard religions?If he gathers enough followers, people wouldn't be forced to accept that his concept is just as true as the one from other religions?

Wut?

Because they totally didn't enslave the jews and form an Empire toward the Fertile Crescent during the New Kingdom.

Because they definitely weren't conquered by the Akkadians who inherited a lot of their belief systems

Nigga, do you even ancient history?

The fucking Greeks made a Rosetta stone for a fucking reason, and the Greeks and Egyotians made connections and similarities between their Gods all the time. As did the Mesopotamians and the Egyptians. That's why they have so many parallel.

Wouldn't that have to be a game that tries to include Christian themes like SMT? Japan is more of an agnostic/Shintoist/Buddhist country. Compare to Okami where you're one of "the" gods (more powerful and well known) fighting other similarly powerful gods. Like if you compared God to Zeus.

>Protagonist's motives and actions are questionable
>Antagonist's nature is ambiguous.

I absolutely hate it when games, and any form of media just goes with "Protagonist = Good, Antagonist = Evil".

I want to experience emotion. All I feel when an Antagonist is just a shallow dick is anger at the awful writers.

Don't get me wrong, there's a time and a place for Joker archetypes, but it has yet to be done well in vidya.

Being irrelevant or not isn't the point. I can argue that arguing on 4chan about vidya tropes is also irrelevant, but here we are right now. Try to use your brain for once to interpret what I said, if someone can create a new religion where the concept of God is changed, it means that God's definition isn't set in stone. It's a abstract concept that was created by humans and like other abstract concepts, it's subject to personal interpretations and is highly subjective.

All you're saying is no u.
Here's the thing, humans interpreted things they could not comprehend as magical beings, some of which were deified. Slowly these beliefs evolved over time and so did the worship of these beings.
All religions of today are just the latest in along line of said worship, having cannibalized from past sources like many before them.
God is nothing more than a product of the mind, it exists solely because you think it exist.

Wha...-what game?

The 1st Golden Sun
you find out when you play as the "villain" party in the next game.
>>
Even if you stretch it to "A God" instead of "The God", there are still very few JRPG where the final boss is actually God or A God.
In the majority of Final Fantasy games, the final boss is someone who became very powerful through magic, usually a human (Tough we've seen a tree and an alien). The exception would be Final Fantasy XIII, the in the first game you fight A God and in the last game you fight The God. In some games, there are actually hints to either God or A God, which you don't fight. In Final Fantasy 1 and 7, there are churches, tough we don't know what God they are from, but both of these games' final boss is a human who became powerful through magic (And a bit of science in Sephiroth's case).
In the majority of Dragon Quest games, the final boss is usually a demon. Sometimes the demon is A God, like DQ2's final boss is the God of Destruction, however even in those cases, it is never The God. The God (or Goddess) exists in every Dragon Quest games, and you never fight them as they are benevolent (You can fight DQ7's god, but it's an optional battle and he's sparring with you, it's not a fight to the death).
In Tales of games, the final boss is usually someone with powerful magic, often from a non-human race who looks human anyway and even when the religion is evil, it's not evil because it's god is evil because there was no god to begin with.

Well, considering their architecture influenced the Greeks, and Greek architectre is seen to tgis day in Washington DC.

I'd say a lot.

Same as their math, geometry, Astrology, zodiac, and most of all, religion, since they too worshipped a Sun Messiah, born on Dec, from a virgin, who was baptized, travellec with 12 deciples, performed miracled, died, and resurrected after three days.

His name was Horus btw, not Jesus.

Ok, the Christian God is a myth.

If there is some sort of "creator" that binds us all, it's probably the universe itself. But that's inconclusive.

Jesus, the apocalypse, the Holy Trinity, Hell, Lucifer, etc... are all mythical folk tales meant to serve as metaphors for astrological effects. None are literal.

That's not what he's saying.

A better example of what he is saying, is that if every person died, and everything ever made by people were destroyed, then the "English" lanuage stops to exist. (along with other languages obviously)

So only in his example, would that be the outcome for "God" that is man made.

Not that your idea hasnt been done or isnt an actual religion (which it is)

I think that's kissing Christianity's ass too.much, and is false, considering all the shit the church pulled in medieval times, and the shit it still pulls to this day.

That said, you could make it grey, where the organization, and inner circle of leaders are corrupt, but the lower ranking people are good-willed who blindly believe the lie, but seek to do good because of it.

In short, the moral would be that for as bad and corrupt as somethig is, the lie itself, still manages to create good for how it tricks people, and the ethics it promotes but doesn't follow.

Well yeah, cause it depends on the individuals in power more than anything.

Still, by virtue of perpetuating a big lie, only to stay rich and powerful, all their brownie points for the good deeds they've done are undone.

They've caused more chaos and destruction and pain and confusion than good overall.

The lower priests are good people though, but they're just as decieved as the followers.

The church has jackshit power nowadays, so it really isn't the Vatican's problem how shitty Italy is doing.

Also, Christianity isn't even the worst of the Abrahamic Religions. They've gone past their "fucking murder everyone who isn't with us" phase, unlike the fucking youknowwhos.

Probably because Christianity got heaped upon with a lot of half-truths or plain ol' lies, many times overlooking a lot of goods it promoted as well.

From the top of my head:

>Catholicism promoted sciences and many researches in history were priests or backed by the church.
>The Inquisitorial process was actually much, much better than the alternative at the time.
>Catholicism said believing in Witches, and burning them, was fucking heresy.
>Out of all the wars in the world, over a thousand, only about 200 of them had actual religious implications. And of those, most of them were by Muslims.
>Much of the bad rep people got from the Church post-Rennaisance came from nostalgic shitlords who looked at Rome like the pinnacle of everything, and cherry picked or outright made up a lot of church corruption just to fuck with people.
>Have in mind that, by far, one of the most charitable organizations of today is the Catholic Church.

And such and so forth.

Problem is, the Church is as good as the people within, and you'd be fucking stupid to think every single minister inside to be a back-stabbing, insidious incompetent edgy shitlord.

Which, statistically speaking, is not true.

That's why that trope I hate. It fucks up with the human aspect of the church for the sole artifact of proving a worn-down, way too fucking extreme point most likely made by people who's never, ever stepped inside a church at any point in their lives.

It's like those Evil Corporate guys in fiction, who'd blow up the planet if it made them money, with the help of their unthinking, cruel, robot employees.

And people seem to agree, even though a lot of us work on corporations.

Try the Medabots games if you enjoy something Pokemon-like.

Not a crazy ton amount of outfits but the game seem to love to play dress up with the main character.

During the course of the game you will get three different female outfits for your male character, four if you count the kimono.

>Catholicism promoted sciences and many researches in history were priests or backed by the church.
Not entitely, many alchemists during medieval times and the Renaissance had to keep discoveries a secret, or twist them in a way that fit with the Church (which is why Alchemy is so spiritual), otherwise the church would have them killed. There are plenty of examples, but this is why alchemyvis codified, and why Descartes for example, said the two absolute truths of reality are that one exists and that God exists, despite the fact that his thought process would also eliminate God fron the equation.
>The Inquisitorial process was actually much, much better than the alternative at the time.
You mean being left alone?

I'd rather not be burned at the stake for refusing to follow a corrupt cult, thank you very much.

The inquisition was clearly the churches method of maintaining power, wgich was always its primary objective.
>Catholicism said believing in Witches, and burning them, was fucking heresy.
Trur, but this wasn't until they reformed the canon in 900 AD, since the bible condemns witchcraft, and church practiced burning as well
>Out of all the wars in the world, over a thousand, only about 200 of them had actual religious implications. And of those, most of them were by Muslims.
This doesn't mean the Catholic church didn't start Holy wars, the crusades, for one. Plus, they always operated behind the scenes with many kingdoms to gain influence and such
>Much of the bad rep people got from the Church post-Rennaisance came from nostalgic shitlords who looked at Rome like the pinnacle of everything, and cherry picked or outright made up a lot of church corruption just to fuck with people.
This is false. We have historical records and evidence.

Yet it's still worth billions, has priceless artworks, collects tons of money, has its leaders live in luxury, while it preaches humility and the values of Christ.

Not to mention, it's stood in the way of science and scientific progress since its conception, be it through calling heresy and intimidating people, censorship, or just outright confusion of the mass populous through blatant lies.

The pope and leaders know it's all bullshit, but they enjoy their fansy lifestyles and influence.

not going to lie most of that shit is just poitical struggles where assholes just lied and told the people it was about god when really it was about crippling their enemies and getting stronger

the hypocrisy of the catholic church is well documented and doesnt reflect religion as a whole

if you want to hate on the catholic church purely for hoarding wealth then go ahead man, hating god or thinking less of others for believing in god is pretty dumb though

that being said i feel bad for people who are raised as slaves to the catholic church they are getting robbed of a lot both physically and spiritually. some people are catholic know the guys in rome are shady distrust them and just put their faith in god, those people are cool

I'm not sure if I like it plotwise, but the fight ended up being a good final challenge

Persona 3 and 4 is quite possibly the best fag dating simulator game. You can play through the whole game without dating anyone.

It's pretty fun.

I'm pretty sure when they said god they meant an all-powerful god like the typical image of the christian god. That being said some of these are wrong even if you use the wider term of just 'a god.'

>Demon Souls
>Bloodbourne
>Final Fantasy Tactics
>Final Fantasy VII
None of those have you fighting a god as the final boss.

Not quite final boss, but Tales of Symphonia does this in a way.

I wished Gary was slightly stronger than he was. The build up to the final fight was pretty good but the actual fight was a pretty big let down.

I was just explaining why I thought it was cool in that game in a way similar stuff in, say, TimeSplitters, wasn't quite as much.

Well, not christianity but in Dragon Quest the church is constantly your ally and usually the place where you save.

Moon Prescence, pls.

Yeah, that's basically how I feel.

Some of the morals of the religion are OK, but ultimately, I do feel a world without religion would be a better place.

The lie it perpetuates causes too much confusion and chaos.

Nothing wrong with Christfags doing their own thing, every one can choose their beliefs, that said, I'd like it if more people just knew the truth.

It has the same problem, but I do really like it in Jumping Flash! for some reason.

The 3D Mario sort of triple jump is great too.
