Abstract

The article explores influences from Old Testament and Gnostic sources upon Japanese video game culture and also discusses the relationship between the player and the played in said games - from a perspective rooted in an exegesis of such texts. It also concerns the pop-culture climate of the 1990s and early 2000s in this context.
