Games to Reality....how did it apply?

As I have played many video games in my life, at the beggining things were quite simple, but as the gaming advanced things started getting a little more realistic, not talking about the graphics either, but more like religious backgrounds not in too much detail but shows some. The games that I play usually have deep dialogue and an interesting story to tell. Even tho it is wrong, they make there own god's in some of these games, but it's not the god that I focus on it's the situations that happen on that planet. When there is war, it takes something so massive as an unknown attack or disaster that puts everyone's life at risk, and seems to pull everyone against there fights against each other and focus on the tradgedy on hand. This sort of reminds me of what our country goes through...like the September 11th crisis. I might have already mentioned this in another post, but disaster seems to be the only way people can actually get together without having conflict with each other on the ridiculous topics of their lives. My application to reality and fantasy might be off, but that's how I noticed things.

Hurricane...a sign of faith? or misfortune?

With the events going on in New Orleans, the area as we all know it is devastated beyond what we can only see on television. Is this testing to see if the people living there have enough faith to make it through or is it just an unfortunate event? I think that this might help people build stronger faith and sometimes devastation is the only way to bring about stronger faith. Other times when people say that God was responsible for the hurricane, I think of it more of Satan's work instead, since he is evil and likes to make people's lives miserable. What do you think?
