About, damn, a year ago, I posted an article about an upcoming video game that might have some troubling, racist imagery. Actually, my article was about how depressing it was that hundreds of video game fans seemed completely unwilling or unable to see how any aspect of the game could possibly be seen as racist. One of the few valid points on their behalf was “the game’s not even out yet, everyone’s getting all upset about a trailer for the game. The game itself might be way different.
So, the game (Resident Evil 5) has been out for weeks now, and here’s an article by a guy who played the game and discusses the game’s depiction of race and ethnicity. Thorough and thoughtful. And only a little nerdy.
