movies can cover racism but games can't? grow up people complaining about this seriously.

HammadTheBeast1249d ago

Racism is history. Get over it.

Racism is history... to white people.

HammadTheBeast1249d ago

Look at the space beside your comment.

There are no white people. Unless they're albino, but those guys don't get too much racism :D.

*Should be history.

Unfortunately....Murica!

No @ below, this game took place in 1908 - even worse than the 50's.

It should be history. But sadly, people like this still exist...

What makes it even worse is that these people aren't even anonymous on a forum or something. They've posted these things on their twitters and facebooks, for all their friends and family to see. D:

/sigh

Unf. as a part of Freedom of speech, we can't really teach these idiots otherwise.

With each generation, racism is decreasing luckily, though not nearly fast enough.

Agreed...so tired of all the moaning and groaning. Like that which was said, it's okay for Hollywood to pitch this theme, even in reverse...

What's plaguing are the constant reminders in our society of the need for "white guilt". Rediculous! What holds society back is not the fact that we know our past--but that we are constantly reliving it. People need to let go and move on.
Not saying some elements don't exist; but there's been plenty of time that has passed, creating a disconnect from the racist issue as a whole. Lets not make a connection for the sake of division itself.

So long as there are those who are 'different' to another person exist, there will always be hatred towards them. It is a fact that is old as history itself.

Bioshock covered racism more maturely than the majority of the websites and reviews who were critical of it.

It's pretty ironic that the people who bash on about Games being taken more seriously as an entertainment medium are the ones too childish to understand when a game is attempting a more grown up approach in writing.
