Stereotypes in Gaming: Where is the Line?

"I guess what I’m wondering is whether or not it’s become O.K. to use stereotypes in gaming. If so, why? Other genres don’t get away with it, at least not to the degree video games do." - JTM Games (Culture, Guacamelee, PS Vita, PS3)

I totally agree mate. I wish there were a zombie game full of aussies but you wouldnt be able to tell if they were white or an aussie lol.

I'm Mexican and I loved Guacamele....there is a difference between cultural heritage and stereotyping.

F this PC garbage already. If the world keeps following this over sensitive BS every character will look like the Greendale human being mascot

There is no line.

Take your political correctness elsewhere Mr Sessler etc.

Stop already, we have all found out, that gaming community (including press, "journalists", etc) isn't mature enough for this particular topic.
