A few years ago my brother introduced me to a game that I played a lot. This game was based on Greek mythology and in it there was a character (which you play as) which was considered a god astaġfiru -llāhᵃ. I was explaining to my brother something and I called him a god (astaġfiru -llāhᵃ). I don't remember if I said "in Greek mythology". I was really young back then and did not even know the word shirk and had no concept of it. This question just dawned on me a week ago. Also I never thought of him as a real god (astaġfiru -llāhᵃ). Did I commit shirk? Please if there is any hadith or Ayaat of shirk being forgiven please tell me in your answer.

playing this sort of game is sinful, but since you were young and ignorant you are pardoned so long as you don't play such a game in the future and repent from any previous sins regardless.
