The Talk Shit
''Les images stéréotypées d'hommes asiatiques présentés comme des guerriers pratiquant le kung-fu ou encore comme des victimes a la peau jaune sont courantes dans plusieurs jeux vidéo a succès, affirme un dîplomé en sociologie de l'Université de la Colombie-Britannique, Robert Parungo.
Richard Smith, professeur de comunications a l'Université Simon Fraser croit que l'Industrie du jeu vidéo a du retard sur les autres médias au chapitre de la sensibilité."
This is one of the biggest talk shit I've heard in a long time.
Video games are racist because they depict asian men, dressed as martial artists, and performing Kung-Fu.
Well I got news for you.
It wouls so seem that all medias are racist. Why restrain the the critic to video games?
Movies, books, radio, internet, television and magazines are racist under these conditions.
Asian victims are depicted in video games.
Well, I guess history itself is racist.
It would mean that the movie Shindler's List is racist towards the jewish people, because it depicts them as victims of the holocaust.
What about the tsunami hitting Asia last year?
Was the Tsunami racist?
Or were the news channels racists for depicting asian victims?
As for Kung-Fu. This would mean that asians studying the said martial art are racist against themselves. ???
what about boxing?
Is it racist to depict a black boxer?
And hockey. Is NHL 2006 racist because it depicts white people playing hockey?
Oh I forgot. Racism towards white people doesn't exist.
Racism only applies to non-white people.
And sexist applies for non-female people.
It's kind of hard being a white guy nowadays, working in the video game industry, to hear those irrelevant pointless illogical critics.
Stereotype, is one thing. Racism is another one.
Remember when I said that videogames were attacked because they were recent and not totally established? (as in older generations don't understand them)
Well, this is what I meant.
Of course video games are late in developing their sensibility. They are a newborn media still.
And, they adress the public that is not in power yet.
It will come in due time.
But asian doing Kung-Fu= racist. Lol. Come on. Don't make it too apparent that you hate for free.
