Can you make white guys in myplayer this time?

#1 Posted by BigBrobawski (29 posts) -

I always make my players as true to me as I can whenever I play games, 2k11 is no exception. Although making a 5'11" white guy proved impossible in 2k11. I don't know why but he always just looked awkward and not even white, more light skinned african american than anything. I hated that I couldn't change his voice either. Is that an option now?

i can't speak to how effective a 5 foot 11 guy would be, but no you cant change the voice of your guy in my player.

I'm not trying to be racist? I was just stating that I couldn't effectively make a player that looked like me. If I wanted to make Steve Nash Jr, I couldn't but I could make Michael Jordan Jr.

@BigBrobawski: Obviously it's a subtle political message from the game designers on the current role of short white men in the sport.

Has to be it. haha

Is this seriously going to be an issue? How is this racist? I'm a white guy, I want to make a white guy. I want to make Nick Burbaugh, 5'11" Irish kid.

Apparently that is racist to make myself as a white guy?

This post makes me sad. Not because of OP, but because of the people that are saying this is a racist post. I can only hope that you guys are kidding.

@Avenging-X-Bolt: form what I can assume... yeah. But bringing up "racism" period always disappoints me just a little. But I'm certainly alright with some harmless joking.

So basketball games are literally the exact opposite of RPG's I guess.

Smallest guy you can make is 6'5". And you can make him white. His voice though? Well, if that dude's white, he's very

They are just messing with you.

Welcome to GB.

We are making fun of the game developers. They are clearly racist.

I guess it all goes back to "White Men Can't Jump" haha

I'm too gullible for my own good. >.>

I made a white guy just fine in last year's game.

#23 Posted by sins_of_mosin (1556 posts) -

Well, the game has one shade of white, one shade of asian, and five shades of black. From french vanilla to dark roast. Lets face it, the NBA is a black sport while hockey is white. MLB is white/latin and the only league that is truely diverse is the NFL. Heck, last year, all you heard from joe morgan was that more blacks needed to play baseball.

Not if you make him a point or shooting guard. They can be as short as 5'10".

BTW, I was kinda sorta able to make Charlie Tunoku in MyPlayer. The only real problem was hair options, as the closest I could get to the P4 guy makes him look more like Yosuke. It looks alright, but looks more like a messier version of his actual hair. Will post pics when I get the chance.
