More fuel to the RE5 fire.


 More fuel to the RE5 fire.
topic by PhI|0z0pH3r - 08-01-2007, 11:52 AM - Boxden > BX GameSpot


The new Resident Evil video game depicts a white man in what appears to be Africa k!lling Black people. The Black people are supposed to be zombies and the white man’s job is to destroy them and save humanity. “I have a job to do and I’m gonna see it through.”

This is problematic on so many levels, including the depiction of Black people as inhuman savages, the k!lling of Black people by a white man in military clothing, and the fact that this video game is marketed to children and young adults. Start them young… fearing, hating, and destroying Black people.

:sleepy: . I just want some quick laughs at some of the responses. And if this issue goes anywhere besides trash bins of forums and websites then im suing for the way their portrayed my race in RE4> More fuel to the RE5 fire. - Photo posted in BX GameSpot | Sign in and leave a comment below! .

and i didn't know a game that's made for 17 year olds and older was marketed at children. this is almost as bad as when them people were complaining about GTA 4's Liberty City being based on NYC and they said that the game had drug dealing to children. SMFH

yeah but u got kids as little as 5 and 6 playin gears of war now a days cause parent dont do their job........

but I guess to them it's a lot easier just to blame a video game company then it is to actually monitor what your kid is doing, playing, and seeing.

EXACTLY. the games aren't marketed to kids at all. THE GAME SAYS 17+! there is no way that a kid under 17 without an ID can buy that game so somewhere along the line, if a kid is playing Gears or RE5 or MGS3, someone had to have gotten it for them and if a parent is watching their kid play these games and don't have a problem with it then that's another issue. @how they really did take the easy route and blamed the game companies.

Targeted towards young people? Hmmmm, i guess there is no such thing as 18+ yr old gamers in the world.

I never understood the difference, between a white guy k!lling white people in poor conditions vs. a white guy k!lling black people in poor conditions. and its not like the antagonist were bad to begin wit, they were innocent people prolly that became brainwashed.

And if somebody says the difference is that they're black then k!ll yoself. We dont deserve to be put on a pedestal, our ANCESTORS deserve to be put on a pedestal because they are the ones who've been through the worst. If you ask me, we !! ourselves over more nowadays than any other race. Got niccas k!llin other niccas over nothin and the same nicca mad cause he feels we cant be depicted as the bad guy in a video game

Whats funny is that alot of people (especially on here) think that "black people" think that the game is raciest, when in reality it's a select few of people who happen to be black that are uninformed on the subject. If you were a black person and you knew nothing of this game and saw the trailer, you might have thought the same thing. Now these people need to educate themselves before making statements tho, because thats just ignorance.

Hopefully they dont got Chris Redfield saying any racial type !! tho, I mean I highly doubt he will tho seeing as how it's a video game and they have people screening !! like that.
