Image of the Day - January 19, 2011

When Phantasy Star was made in the 1980s, developers were less concerned with potentially alienating customers by including religious references in video games. It was common to see priests used as a vehicle for the revival of defeated characters or saving games. Usually these priests were found in churches decorated with Christian imagery, such as a cross. This is the priest from Phantasy Star, who is a perfect example of this mostly abandoned practice. In this case, we can even see a cross on the man's headgear, a mitre.
