There Are Too Many Dark-Haired White Guys in Gaming

Kotaku - You know what needs to stop in video-game?

Dark-haired white guys in Gaming.

Now, we've already heard about how there are too many white guys in Gaming, and I agree wholeheartedly. However, I think it's also worth pointing out, too, that not all white guys have dark hair, either. Some of us have blonde, red, or even lighter, richer shades of brown.

Honestly, there are so, so many shades of natural hair-colors that it's damn-right shameful how present "Really-dark brown" is. Hell, even straight-up Black hair seems a rarity by comparison.

I dont care about the design of the character, I care about the quality of the character

i notice you call yourself MaideninBlack. Any particular stereotype you're aiming at there?

I didn't realise that Rochelle — Left 4 Dead 2, Naomi — Metal Gear Solid, Sarah Kerrigan — Starcraft 2, Jack — Mass Effect 2, Elena — Uncharted 2, Madison Paige — Heavy Rain, Vanille — Final Fantasy XIII, Alyx Vance — Half-Life 2, Sheva — Resident Evil 5, Farah — Prince of Persia, Faith — Mirror's Edge, Chloe — Uncharted 2, Poison Ivy — Batman: Arkham Asylum, Ada Wong — Resident Evil 4, Samus — Metroid: Other M, Tifa Lockhart — Final Fantasy VII, Miranda — Mass Effect 2, Leilana — Dragon Age: Origins, Liara — Mass Effect 2, Jill Valentine — Resident Evil and Lara Croft — Tomb Raider where all transvestites. You learn something every day

You do realise that games depict guys accurately too don't you. We're all like that

And only 3 or so of them is a main playable character. I think that's the point Maiden was trying to make. But by all means, continue with your list.

You're joking, it'd take me all day! lol

There are too many rubbish journalists in gaming who have ran out of ideas and talent.

This is the problem, not games, or devs, or publishers, or 10yr old kids whinging online (they will eventually grow up... and mature), or which console to follow or love unconditionally, but these crappy journalists that fabricate crap for the sake of hits.

Seriously?! Too many dark haired guys an issue now?! Sky is too blue in most games? Too many people speak english in the world?

If HHG can get thrown out N4G, we have more than enough reasons to ban Kotaku!

Other than white guys being the primary audience for video games, I'm going to assume that the contrast in hair color and skin color has a lot to do with artistic contrast rather than just something against lighter colored hair colors.

Hollywood image of a guy/ End

Which I'm fine with, I don't want to look at some ugly *** people in gaming, I can just look outside, or in the mirror/hurr/

LOL_WUT2163d ago

Who cares? Kotaku is seriously running out of stuff to write about.

Relientk772163d ago

"There are too many Kotaku's in game journalism "

FinaLXiii2163d ago

Pretty sure Drake as brown hair.

rpd1232163d ago

Brown is a dark color.

But yeah this shit really doesn't matter. Ima go out on a limb and say that dark haired white guys make up the bulk of gamers and audience has a lot of influence.

We need Pink-haired black guys! Problem solved.
