  1. Salaam everyone This thread is to put together a list of video game systems that you have owned or used to own. Let me start it off with mine. Game Boy Advance (my first game system and my first handheld, SP version, I lost it) Sony PlayStation 1 (my first ever video game console, my parents threw it away two years after I got my Wii) Nintendo Wii Nintendo DS Lite (my second handheld, broke in 2013 ) Nintendo GameCube Sony PlayStation 2 (had for a short time only, original fat model) Nintendo Wii U Sony PSP (borrowed one from my dad's best friend's son in India to take during my long ziyarat trip during the summer of 2015, returned back to him when I was returning back to Toronto)
  2. For those who don't know, it is essentially an emulator which runs games from the playstation 2 online and is completely free in that you do not pay for the games, they are already violable to download online. It feels kinda cheap and scummy to do so as you haven't paid for it. Does it count as piracy and if so does that mean stealing? Is it haram?
  3. Salaam brothers and/or sisters if some of you are reading this. Which generations of video game consoles would you consider to be retro? For me its the second generations, third generation, fourth generation and fifth generation (and probably the sixth gen to a certain extent).
  4. Via radio and then searching the net, there is a book on the study of video games as, I describe it, a positive force. How Games Move Us, by Kathrine Isbister Reviews seen: MIT Press; PBS' "Science Friday" which has a 2.3 minute video. Interesting. Not in the "video games are a subversive force" genre.
  5. Salaam everyone. I am getting this odd feeling that this current age of digital technology may describe a couple of the signs foretold by our holy prophet. I mean one of the signs is that people will cary music. People are carrying iPods and other stuff like that. Next there are video games like Call of Duty which many people are starting to get addicted into. Today's youth are completely brainwashed by these games and it encourages violence. People are starting to be violent due to these games that they play on their PlayStation 3's, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One and PC. It is leading to corruption. Music is starting to become widespread and it is played just about everywhere in public. Younger kids are being influenced by this media. Could this be a possiblity that we are slowly approaching the age of ignorance? They misbehave with their peers and injustly with others. Video games are currently the fastest highest grossing means of entertainment. People chase after them including myself which is kinda tricky for my to stop myself. People are almost starting to be distracted from the worship of Allah. They start thinking about buying the latest Call of Duty. People are being addicted to social networks like Facebook and Twitter and gaming services like Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. Today's younger teens start looking at innappropriate haraam pictures. What could this all mean? I get this weird feeling that we may be close to the age of ignorance. Video games seem unavoidable and people just can't keep away from them. This is widespread in North America and Europe. Younger Muslims start following pop stars like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, PSY, Justin Timberlake among others and can't stay away from them. They are nearly compelled to go towards them. There are too many sins being committed and people are wasting their time with this Call of Duty stuff. There is too much bloodshed going around the world in the Middle East and Gaza and so many other places. It seems that our current era is being filled with curruption and injustice. We are losing some dear momins in a few places and they are being killed. It makes me feel sad. We hear lot's of problems going on around the world and it is heard in the news all the time. Does this all seem true and reasonable or are almost all of the signs of the last age are starting to come true one by one? What are your thoughts on this? It makes me fear so much.
  6. My favorites have to go to the Zelda games, I played nearly every Zelda except for Majora's Mask, Four Swords Adventures,Wind Waker, A Link Between Worlds, and those awful CD-i Zelda games. I love the Legend of Zelda series. I love some Mario games like Super Mario Galaxy 2. I haven't played Super Mario Sunshine. What are your favourite Nintendo games?
  7. I have been playing lot's of video games and they are retro games like from the 8/16 bit generations (NES/Master System, and SNES/Genesis) and some modern ones from the sixth and seventh generation of consoles. I know the NES and the Sega Master System have only a Programmable Sound Generator that outputs only square waves. Is really haraam for me to listen to video game music even if it is 8 or 16 bit even though they are computer generated tones. I know that the Super Nintendo's Sony SPC700 sound chip is PCM Sampled based so the game music uses some sampled instruments. I admit that I am addicted to NES, Genesis and SNES game soundtracks. What should I do? Are the NES game soundtrack less haraam than the Sega Genesis and SNES game soundtracks? Are all three still haraam despite the music being artificially generated by a sound generator and not using actual instruments?
  8. I just deleted all of my games and I recommend everyone else to do too, they are a huge waste of time and they are addictive. The games also made me short tempered, only when I played games did I feel lazy and tired and angry or sad. Trust me, there are many hidden harms done and there is no benefit from them. Please Delete your games and don't play them again, even if it means you will have to face boredom then do so because when you are bored and you stop playing games, you will start moving towards more useful things, like getting a job or reading a book etc.
  9. Salaam, brothers and sisters. I have a question I've been thinking long about and here it is. Is it haraam to look at female video game characters. For example in the Mario series, you have to go through levels collecting power ups and go through various castles to rescue a princess named Princess Peach. Some games have you play as female protagonists such as in the Metroid series where you have to play as a female galactic bounty hunter named Samus Aran who is in a Power Suit in where she is concealed in it and she has a visor where you can only see her face, am I allowed to look at her if she is in this Power Suit. I am a avid game player btw.
  10. I understand this topic has been touched upon in many posts but I've posted the following question as I haven't found a definitive answer to the answer I seek. I'll also be sending this question to the office of Ayatollah Sistani but nevertheless I would appreciate your opinions on this matter: Since quite a young age I've very much enjoyed playing video games and have always wanted to join the industry. I found a couple of game development kits recently and am nearing the completion of my first mobile game, which I'm hoping to release after the summer. I was wondering however, whether or not I should put music into the game. At the moment I am against the idea purely out of precaution but should I continue to pursue my ambition of trying to become a games designer there may become a time where I may be working on a game with a group of people (maybe superiors) who decide that they are going to implement music and was wondering how that would affect me? Thanks for reading (and responding). I appreciate any replies.
