I'll get this out of the way quickly. I'm an agnostic, which would mean that I'm just not religious but at the same time not an atheist. It's just that after looking through games like Xenogears or Final Fantasy 7, I have been fascinated by the story potential you can create through religious references. It also helps in making a more intriguing yet dark storyline. At the same time though, I'm aware that too many religious references can easily break a game and could feel rather... preachy. So I want to hear it from you guys. What's the right balance in the amount of religious undertones in a game? Is it fine to add in these themes in the first place, or should they just never exist in the first place? This thread is just for recreational purposes, I don't intend to offend anyone who is religious after all. I just want your opinion on the idea.
