Hey, you said:Eclipse Dragon said:I never said I was rejecting the game.Treblaine said:It doesn't have to, it's just a trend that reflects the ethnic background of the people who MADE the games.Eclipse Dragon said:or why the game needs to star a white guy in the first place.
Are you equally surprised that Kung Fu films made in china mainly star... people from China.
Or that Indian Bollywood films mainly star people who are from... India.
I'm not the type of berk who refuses to watch an excellent Kung Fu movie because the hero isn't White-European... I don't see why anyone else should reject any other game for the race of the protagonists because that is the very definition of racism.
Actually I never really opposed the cover art.
You're taking things too seriously.
"or why the game needs to star a white guy in the first place."
Why would you make such a weasel statement? Asking "why is it such" is such a backhanded weasel way of making an allegation and passing it off as a question. The allegation is clear: "the games need to star a white guy" to spite the many examples to the contrary.
You can't make serious allegations about race then be like "You're taking things too seriously."
Frankly I find your racial profiling inappropriate. It's not like non-whites are excluded from games, but your necessity to point out " Socom 4 has three white guys holding guns" is inflammatory while stating "Actually I never really opposed the cover art" is clearly you trying to weasel out of your insinuations. Take some responsibility.
