Sounds like Spider-Man 2 mixed with True Crime. What shit.

Did you guys even read my OP? I'm saying that RE5 isn't racist but that some people are apparently uncomfortable with it...

#5 Posted by IHeartUnicornsAndRainbows (91 posts) -

The whole argument just seems stupid to me.

How is killing Africans in Resident Evil 5 any different than killing Spanish villagers in the 4th iteration of the series? The fact that people are critical of RE5 for showing "white on black" violence just shows that the culture that we live in is still blinded by prejudice and racism. The continued shying away from anything that is potentially offensive not only perpetrates racist notions (No one complained about the mexican, russian, and asian stereotypes in a game like Crackdown because it was not "taboo") but also is holding back gaming as a medium.

As with sexuality, the fact that gaming feels unable to capture a questionable subject matter is what stops it from becoming as mainstream and totally accepted as film. With movies like American History X, Traffic, Training Day, American Beauty, American Psycho, and others that are able to tastefully handle a potentially offensive subject matter Film has gained maturity and shed being "for kids and rebels" just as Rock and Roll music once did long ago.

That is not to say that games are immature in any shape or form but until game developers becoming capable of tapping into potentially uncomfortable topics they can make no real progress as a medium. Even Wii which has captured a new audience of grandmothers and parents is regarded as serious as a board game. If we want games to progress we need to be able to handle minor "racism" which is not even evident similar to how Mass Effect was able to tastefully handle sexuality.

A little rambly....but what do yall think about this?

His first job with the team was to hire a new manager, Grady Little. Colletti's notable player transactions, as GM, include signing Takashi Saito, Jason Schmidt, Juan Pierre, and Andruw Jones,

Because he was the main character in the critically acclaimed film Eraserhead.
