I'm gonna try the game, but I think I'll have an immersion problem because you play as an african american. Go shout "racist!" but that's not it -- AT ALL! What's it then? Well, can't put my finger on it...

Yeah, man, that's the same reason I could never play Mario (I don't have a mustache) or Doom (I'm not a space marine) or Deus Ex (I'm not a monotone cyborg) or LittleBig Planet (I'm not a stuffed animal.)

I can only play The Sims, because I can make a perfect little mirror image of myself and watch him do the things I do, like sit at a computer.




If it isn't racism, what is it? You're clearly incredibly hung up on skin tone, likely more than even whether something is human or not. And you call it an "immersion problem" but you're playing a game in 3rd person with a HUD and ripping limbs off of things...
