I guess that videogames is a "difficult" topic in regards its infamous reception within some conservative groups. Videogames count as media such as TV, cinema, etc., so I thought it was a good idea to bring the topic here since witchcraft is implied in some manner as part of pop culture. I myself have a philosophical relationship with them (thinking the from some phisolophical topics as affections and what they bring to thought, it is a subject indeed) while spending too much time "accomplishing" goals and exploring the virtual world, etc. Got to say that when I came close to traditional witchcraft I stopped using videogames at all. I was surprised by that. Though there are some videogames that take traditional witchcraft (and not just magic) as the background or the main context of a story. Recently, there is an interesting one called Black Book launched in August 2021. The team (Morteshka) says: Also I guess that is a fun an interesting way to know from first hand ("the poeple that grew up wish these folk tales") some info that the videogame itself gathers about Russian folk witchcraft. The trailer. Technical details and presskit to see some details.
I originally started watching this just to see what it was. I love paranormal shows, just because it's fun to me to see how people react when they get what they're looking for. However, this show has me interested for a whole different reason. One of the main investigators, Hart is a Bayou raised man who, other than working for NASA in the past, also has quite the knowledge of Folk Magic, Hoodoo and Voodoo, in which he uses to help bring out the spirits to get evidence, as well as showing things like getting the perfect ingredients for your gris gris bag and getting frog's breathe to protect you. Anyone else watching?
