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.)"

Excessive interest in her physical (and digital) appearance? Checkbox.
Oh, come on. Someone likes playing with character creators automatically makes them a narcissistic? That's quite a stretch. Customizing avatars, whether to look like yourself or someone else, is just game play. I've done quite a bit of that myself in games like ME. Billions of people put on make up every day while looking at themselves in the mirror. Are they all narcissists?

I almost always make the most grotesque character that the creator will let me.
But, when 90% of characters already basically look like me, it's fun to have the exception. So, if exceedingly few looked like me, I'd almost definitely gravitate towards ones that do.
