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 would honestly LOVE to see the harpy level screeching these same people would do if they ever had to play a game that restricted them to ONLY dark skin and natural black hairstyles.

Dude, that would fucking rule! Even as a white dude living in Hicksville, Texas, I know there are so many black and people of color role models to pick from and emulate.

Though I find it interesting that someone upthread stated "races" when, in fact, there is no such thing as different human "races", scientifically speaking. We're all Homo Sapiens. There are varying phenotypes, certainly, but that means jack shit to anyone who isn't bigoted to Hell and gone.
