8 Best Games That Are Religious Metaphors

Were you able to find the holy symbols in these games?

If you’ve ever taken a critical thinking class or studied mixed media in general, you probably know what an allegory is: a story with a barely veiled moral message. Common allegories in books, music, movies, and yes, even video games, show religious morals in a variety of ways.

Depending on how much you know about faith, archetypes and allegories can be found in all video games, though some are much more obvious to the average person. It’s also rare to find a game with a religious allegory that runs through the whole thing. Usually, a Christ-like figure is the only religious part of an otherwise secular story.
