So ever since I got my Ps3 I have been feverishly reading about upcoming new games, I now have an online game rental service, and I can't wait until GTA:IV comes out this Tuesday! I am officially a PS3 Fanboy... yet after seeing a trailer for this one game, I took a step back.
Resident Evil 5 is an upcoming game about, well killing zombies, and we all know how much I HATE Zombies. Yet what disturbed me even more when watching the trailer was the Zombies were Africans!
Ok Ok, sure I am all for racial diversity in gaming. I mean the only black main character I can think of is CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and he was a "Nigger Calling Gangster from the Hood!" Now we have a game where a white man is in Africa hunting and killing down massive African Zombies. I mean really? Isn't that just a little tasteless and insensitive?
So what do you guys think? Can we get past our "past" and just see this as a game of just killing "zombies" or does the the color of there skin bother you enough to not even play the game?
