    To be honest, he looks like any other generic Eastern European guy and for a Nazi-Killer that's sort of a dead give away. None of this will adversely affect my enjoyment out of the Wolfenstein games by any reason.​

    Ugh...it's a FPS (at least the original...haven't kept up with the other versions). The absence of player character (in the original) means that it is supposed to be YOU (or more specifically: the darker side of you). And since I'm not Jewish, I see no reason why I want to pretend to be one when shooting bad guys. And since the nazis also prosecuted homosexuals and gypsies, you could just as well pretend to be a gay gypsie. In fact, it would make more sense to play as such, as your character isn't wearing a yarmulke.

    I honestly don't get some gamers. There are plenty of games where backstory and roleplaying are a part of the core gameplay, but FPS'es tend to not be one of those. So what's the point of asking such questions? If you're playing a game of table tennis, it's not like you need to imagine playing as someone other than yourself, right? So then why should this be the case for video games? :rolleyes:

    Also, I think it would be cooler if Blow Job Blazkowicz was a blond hair blue eye that the Nazi's treated with favor, and he rebuked it, and turned against them.

    Blazkowicz sounds like a Polish name, it's synthetic, but it has the right twing to it. That said, there was a lot of Polish jews around at the time, but to my knowledge, intermarriage between Jews and non-jews was generally frowned upon. Jews are very "close-minded" in that regard and with the tenion of the war and ethnic cleansings so were the Poles. Still, it's an acceptable war-time story, the theory checks out.

    Glad to see Kotaku is still on the cutting edge of journalism.
