Ethics and Video Games Podcast

Apr 26, 2022

We’ve done 40 episodes about ethics and video games and the word “God” or “Religion” never came up.  How do religion and video games connect with one another and what can the religious ethics of Paul Tyllich tell us about how to approach video games?


Our guest, Benjamin J. Chicka is Lecturer of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Curry College. His work connects classical American pragmatism, process theology, and ground-of-being theology.  Playing as Others: Theology and Ethical Responsibility in Video Games (2021) is his book on how moves toward greater diversity and inclusion in the video game industry can inform theological ethics and conversations about diversity and pluralism
