What A Great Year! – Thank You For Your Support

by Yo Snyder

Wow! What a year! The Guide isn’t even a full 12 months old
yet, but looking back it feels like we’ve been doing this for awhile. Our heart
for this whole endeavor was to give you a resource to use to not only help you
pick out good movies and video games (which is a very important part of what we
do because we don’t want you to waste your time or money), but also to give you
something that you could use a springboard for starting Biblical conversations
with people. These stories we see in movies and video games are almost like
Pop-Culture Parables, and we try to highlight that for you so you can use them
that way when talking with others. It’s our sincere desire for this be a useful
resource that will encourage and edify you as much as it educates you on what’s
happening in today’s movies and video games.

That being said, this isn’t as easy as it may seem. Sure,
some may this “job” as just goofing off while watching movies and playing
games, but it’s so much more than that. We thoughtfully process everything we
view, sifting it for those little gems of truth that may lie hidden within.
Also, it isn’t always easy to always views things with an eye that’s constantly
gauging quality and excellence. It gets wearying and in short; we’re tired. We
need to recharge spiritually and mentally for the upcoming year. So, we won’t
have any updates in the next couple of weeks, but we’ll be back with gusto come
2012. We hope you won’t begrudge us a little time off, and during this down
time, please share with us ways we can make The Guide even better for you in
the New Year. From all of us here at The Guide, Merry Christmas and have a
fantastic New Year.
