    I dont understand how could Resident Evil 5 it's a racist game? and those complain so much...
    If you think Resident Evil 5 a Racist game? could Crysis also be Racist Game?

    and here few other Racist Game?


    Medal of Honor: Rising Sun
    Battlefield Vietnam
    Conflict: Vietnam
    Conflict: Desert Storm 2 Back to Baghdad
    Hitman 2 (Muslim)

    Any Battlefield game is not one, because you can play on either side, is the same. [​IMG]

    And Crysis might be of racist game, but North Koreans are too cool to care. [​IMG]

    Here's the thing. People will always complain, even if they will never buy the game, and even if they were too stupid to not look at the age rating.

    And for some reason, just because a bunch of people are killed and they notice a huge similarity, it's automatically racist. So they want the game to take place in Africa with a bunch of rainbow colored people. But you know what? The game is too violent, and they'll end up complaining it's too violent even though they'll never buy it. It's like they can't control their kids from buying games secretly(HOW OFTEN DOES THIS EVER HAPPEN???) so they blame the game companies. Now there is a time they go to a firiends house to play though... Don't have an opinion on that.

    It's because you're shooting black people in Africa.

    To be politically correct, you need to be able to shoot black people, Chinese people, Indians, Mexicans, and females.

    Also, for safe measure, put some of the zombies in wheelchairs.

    OMG! A ZOMBIE'S GONNA EAT ME! AAAAAAAHHHHH! But wait, the zombie looks black, it'll be racist to shoot him, dammit, goodbye world!


    Whether it be black or white or blue or red or green or a whole palette of colors, is there anything wrong with shooting zombies? We've killed a ton of zombies in the past, you can't even tell if they're black or white, it didn't matter, they're still zombies.


    Conclusion: It's just overreaction.

    Race doesn't matter. Therefore shooting black zombies doesn't matter.
    Therefore complaining about only having black zombies even if it is the case is the actual part that's racist.

    I don't think any of those games are really racist, you only kill those colored people because the playable character happens to be in a certain country.

    I guess everyone in Africa has to be white now.

    I mean, if I crashed in Africa with a bunch of black zombies, I'd be racist and shoot them all too.

    Lets just hope we are never going to be invaded by aliens.... it would be racist to shoot at them :|


    And yeah, making a zombie game in africa with white zombies only would be less racist....... right [​IMG]

    Just a thought but was Hitman 2 not supposed to be offensive to some Sikh people (something to do with similarities to the Harmandar Sahib in one of the levels) not some Muslim people.

    Back on topic it is intent that governs things for me, none of those games appear to have any intent of casting anyone down.

    There's "racism" (?) everywhere and in everything IF YOU LOOK HARD ENOUGH FOR IT. And that's the problem - tyoo many people actively looking for things to get upset by, and hopefully profit from - wankers
