RPG Games where priests are NOT corrupt.

Reached Armonia - in-setting Rome - and there is many corruption. Also Pope just got assassinated. At least we have crusaders fighting demon invasions. And, unlike wrath of trannies, even with corrupt leadership crusaders actually won previous Holy Wars.

Are there any games at all that feature Orthodox Christianity? or some in-universe Orthodox-like religion. It seems like stories in general that feature religion tend to be Catholic influenced, church being affiliated with the regime and wars and stuff.

BG has an Ottoman mosque, that's about the closest thing I can think of

Black Book is set in late-19th century Russia, with Orthodox churches featuring prominently:

You save your game in churches in most Dragon Quest games i played they also protect you from the evil kingdom that wants your head, cure ailments and resurrect party members. Most people that hates the church irl have never been a member of one and are influenced by jewllywood in their perception of them, i used to teach woodworking in one and even had barbecues with the priests there, cool guys.

Video gaming has its share of uncompromising priests. Trying to limit this to RPGs is going to skew the results.

I mean, you have:
  • Reverend Ray McCall in Call of Juarez, who deals with sinners wielding double colts while having the option to quote the Bible the whole time.
  • The Texttorcist: The story of Ray Bibbia - it has the corrupt Church, but you play as an exorcist Ray Bobbia who's literally banishing demons and dispensing justice in the name of the Lord.
  • In Forgive Me Father you can shoot Cthulhu monsters as a priest, because We Can't Expect God to Do All the Work (literally the quote made by the developer of the Steam forum of the team).
And these are just three examples (one of which is very recent) that I can name off the top of my head. I am sure there are more games using the archetypes of an uncompromising/pure/good/hardcore/cool priest.
