Ok, let me first say that this is silly and meant to be light hearted. Personally, it effects my gaming habits a bit. When I’m playing a game such at Total War, Age of Empires, or Civilization I will try and make my empire as atheistic as possible. In the Total War games I delete all the churches and instead build schools and universities. If I can’t dismiss or assassinate my own religious leaders, I send them off to the very corner of the map. In the Civilization games I refuse to adopt any religion when it is invented, and try my best to avoid researching religious techs. As for Age of Empires, I build the church grudgingly to get the technologies, and then delete it the moment I’m done. (When I played I usually played online and there are other non-religious techs available at the church, so I needed them to play my best against other people). Currently I just started playing Dawn of Discovery (Anno 1404) and a lot of the NPCs are uber religious characters. There is this one lady who looks a bit like Joan of Arc who keeps telling me about how she's on a mission from god and that angels talk to her. I swear I am so going to level her cities to the ground when I get better at the game. :-p Again, this is all just in good fun and I know I'm negelecting some of the mechanics of the game, but I enjoy it. Am I alone in little quirks like these?
