Op Ed

  • The Verge - Elden Ring’s character creator fails Black players. Thanks Max.
    "This isn’t just an Elden Ring problem; it’s a video game problem. For many years, players of color have had to mod in things like kinky hairstyles and better, more authentic-looking skin tones in order to have the kind of representation that white players get by default. Games with a customizable protagonist are nearly always represented with a white-passing avatar. And when games do include Black hairstyles, it’s almost always only a fade and an afro, which are the go-to styles whenever a character creator wants to give the appearance of inclusivity while not actually being all that inclusive. (Looking at you, Mass Effect.)"

I agree. Devs should cater to narcissists of all types, so each player can change their hero to look exactly like them, and truly admire their meta-self. That's why I only read books in which the protagonist has my name. I'm just flabbergasted that authors dare to write about anyone else.
If it's narcissism when black players want to be able to play black characters but can't, how much more narcissistic is it when white players actually do that? And therefore more importantly, why doesn't that bother you as much as black players saying they want to do what white players already can?
