Picking Sazh over Barret. Guy with a gun for a hand... Or a guy with a chicken in his Afro.

What a racist list. Why dont we have top 12 white characters list?

Oh right, because its okay for Blacks have things for themselves, but not any other race.
Pozzle  +   192d ago
Or maybe its because most "top game character" lists are filled with white characters, so this is a chance for black characters to get some recognition for once?

If you want a list of white characters, there are hundreds on N4G alone. The only difference is that the authors don't need to call them a "top white characters" list, because white characters tend to top them by default.

They have top female lists more often than anything else, so is that sexist against us males? Get real buddy.

What's racist is seeing an article about black characters(they get props for saying "black" as opposed to "African American") and coming here and acting like they can't have one.

You can go and have your own water fountains, but throw a fit when black people get one.

Jesus Christ.

It's pretty sad when you think about it. There are barely any black characters in games to begin with, which reveals a pretty racist (or at least exclusionary) attitude in the game industry. Yet when ONE author decides to recognize the few awesome black characters that DO exist, people cry racism and demand more representation for white people. Because apparently a mostly white-dominated industry isn't enough? Ugh.
