Game census concludes that there is far too many white lead characters in-game, and that the games industry is under representing minorities...


I'm sorry, but that is kind of silly. I understand that different people in different countries play games. But i don't see them complaining that most of their games characters are western and look nothing like them or their friends...

Will Rockstar North make the next GTA lead character a Ladyboy from North Korea called Dong just keep up the Asian balance?!

lmao

Now let's look at the demographics of who plays games and... surprise surprise, it probably fits that chart quite well. Although I suppose the Japanese game industry doesn't exactly promote Japanese people. They always seem to use Western/European characters instead. Even if the games aren't even being marketed to the west. Not sure why they do that to themselves.

And if it's not that, then it's these freakish looking anime characters of ambiguous race and gender.

Whoever wants to be the guy who makes a game about a black man wielding a chain-gun, mowing down white-people, go right ahead.

The reason is that when heartless says something stupid, he really means it and believes it.

LOL.

Exactly. Could you imagine the reverse of Resident Evil 5? A black guy and a white chick (who looks black) come to America to kill white people infected with a virus that isn't AIDS or Sickle-Cell Anemia. The main character, an black mercenary from Africa named Leroy Jenkins and his American female contact, Susie Johnson battle an outbreak of swine flu in an upper-class suburb of San Francisco. Children, women and men of the community have become ill and it's up to Leroy to contain the spread of the virus by any means necessary. Battle the infected in levels that include: Posh Shopping Mall; Busy Organic Grocery Store; an exclusive Country Club and a Catholic Church.

That would be cool. I'd love to run around with an AK shooting high-class Americans in the head on a game. It's just as fair imo as running around Nigeria shooting Nukka's!

meh, who cares? You know why most of the characters are white? Thank about who most of our national hero's/historical heros are? White men. Maybe now that Obama is in office we'll get some more racial variety. But i don't really care about playing as a black woman with a bad attitude. :-/

And, they should consider all ninja's to be asian... even the super mutant ninja turtles. But they don't, do they?

Fuck, I don't know. At the end of the day, most (if not all) gaming industries are stereotypes. There's less individuality.

Someone was telling me that the amount of minorities in advertising increased since the election. No concrete source on that though.

Stereotypes help people easily identify someone. No need to explain their background or a lot about them.

The blacks need to stop moaning. I swear racism was invented by the blacks because they were jealous of us whites.

^Also my theory on racism.
