    "Game Characters Are Too White, Too Male"

    Lack of non-whites in video games may cause "identity formation" problems in minorities.

    I'm sure all that's needed is to turn on the television, go see a movie or read a magazine should fix anybody in a "identity formation crisis" right up. What about the identity crisis that is happening across the Western world in regards to anybody who is white. I can't recall the amount of times on a daily basis I see media which subtly or even unsubtly links white people to being negative or bad. Or what about becoming minorities in lands where traditionally we have been the majority. That's the real identity crisis!

    The stupidity just keeps coming.

    Most video games are made by Europeans and Japanese, so of course the characters are going to be European or Japanese... And since Japan does not live in a multicultural society, they make video games for white people when they do it for our markets.

    I am unsure about the woman thing. Many games feature women, but like movies, it is almost always sexual and for a male audience. The article cites that women make up 40% of the consumers, but the fact is they mostly play casual games like the card games included with Windows. Males - mostly white - buy all the games, even if they are just 60%. I do not even have a single male friend who has never purchased a game before, yet most of the women I know do not.

    So to be blunt, if Negros and "Latinos" want games, then they should make them. We are not their servants.

    Most purchasers of video games, and thus most gamers are White. As such, it is only logical that they will identify more with a White character than a Black character - since surely if playing a White character leads to a "identity formation" crisis in Blacks or Hispanics, the same would hapeen with Whites when playing with a Black or Hispanic character, no?
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    So, when I chose to play the dwarf in Sacred or WoW I get a serious identity forming problem?

    It's so ridiculous, on one hand they're whining about all the evil 'killer games' and then they start to whine - about the very same games - that there are no blacks to 'identify' with?!? s t u p i d

    Well, I play roleplaying games from time to time and it´d be just laughable to play a black elf or a slant-eyed sorceress. If I was forced to play a non-white character in a game I´d boycott it for sure. Many famous fantasy universes (like "Das Schwarze Auge", "Dungeons&Dragons", the "Conan the Barbarian universe" or "Lord of the Rings") are constructed on our European/Western medieval age, extended with some magical and mythological elements. There´s nearly no place for non-White elements. Conclusive inclusions of foreign elements are hurting the athmosphere and logic of the game.

    By the way, in games like "GTA 4" people were forced to play with a male black gangsta character. How many "identity formation" problems arised because of that anti-white restriction? I´d never play such games, anyway.

    What´s the reason for a white player to create a non-white character in a game - besides hate against the own kind/race and exaggerated political correctness?

    It's the same thinking as in converting Vikings from Germanic to Negro. History is twisted to avoid offending non-whites. Logic doesn't matter anymore. All that matters in these sickened societies, everything that is done, has the scope to make these frigging non-whites feel better about themselves. Whatever the price.
