In this day and age, there should be no doubt that gaming is typically demonized in our culture. Any time that something violent and tragic happens, the media tries to blame video games. Though no study has conclusively linked violent behavior to violent video games, for most people there is the appearance of a link, whether factual or not.
To add insult to injury, as a whole, Christian culture does not approve of video games as an acceptable medium of entertainment. Even if your church accepts gaming in general, it is usually seen or considered a childish means of entertainment (aside from the youth pastor of course). This results in Christians who do game, or participate in facets of geek culture, to be more prone to have to defend their choice of geek-dom or gamer-dom.
