Just wondering if the Pope plays Tomb Raider , the last time I saw him
on TV was quite a few months ago..... somewhere in the Vatican...
shhsshhhhh..... he's trying to get through the Tomb of Seth. :)

Indeed it does , but it was just an example that he was playing Tomb
of Seth.... I wonder if he is amongst us inconspicuously contributing
to the Forums ? :rolleyes: Perhaps my imagination is too vast. Papal life
can't be all that much fun and TR might happily pass the hours.

I await official word he plays TR :D

Yes, that is very surprising. I wonder if he passed that level. :D

Hehe :D

I suspect him to be playing TR on PDA or GBA or another handheld gaming device, which he can quickly tuck away inside the sleeves of the papal robe. Although I do remember a piece of news about Lara being way too sexy for priests ...

Yerp, here it is - something from Ananova back in 2001:

An Italian priest teaching his fellow priests how to play adventure video games has banned Lara Croft because she's "way too sexy".

Father Antonio Mazzi's weekly classes in his Milan parish allows priests to practise their skills on Tekken 3 and Crazy Taxi, but not Tomb Raider.

He wants to encourage priests to learn about youth culture.

Father Mazzi told La Stampa newspaper: "Condemning violent video games is simply not enough. We have to understand what they're about. Video games play an enormous role in youngsters' lives nowadays."

But he said allowing "sexy" Lara Croft would be a step too far.

But perhaps other rules apply for the Holy Father?

starwarsboots :Well Researched !!! The Vatican needs Lara to get a few
things er... straight :) .and I'm sure a PSP once TR gets released on UMD
would fit snugly concealed within the robe. :D

I had an idea he was already on the Forums... Staticon's blessing is most welcome -is there any chance of you being canonized this century ?? :p

Nah! He wouldn't be caught dead playing it. He thinks it's sinful.

no Tomb Raider for the pope, he wouldn't hurt a fly
he can't swing a rope and would instantly die
