How controversial?

Not controversial at all.

(Except for people with anti-gay hangups)

How is this still a story?

Part of the story has been leaked from ubisoft and it has been revealed that the guy sitting down ISN'T EVEN WHITE! So the stupid people complaining about it don't have to any more. Case closed.

If you want to talk about an issue that this has raised, talk about how people were upset when they thought a white guy was sitting over a person of different race on the cover of FC4, but on the cover of FC3 when a latino guy was sitting over a white guy buried up to his neck in the sand... they DIDN'T CARE! So in their mind it's only racist when a white guy is oppressive, which makes them all hypocrites. THAT is a story.

Aren't they the real racists for noticing this in the first place, and the fact that they only get upset if the guy is white?
Omnisonne  +   461d ago
exactly, the problem is with the people that see everything in black/white, as in skin color.
They would probably even sue M&M's for not having enough brown M&M's in their bag compared to yellow ones

RE5 all over again...A non-issue blown out of proportion by a handful of closet racists.

No more or less than any other title in the series. Everybody is too quick to be offended anymore.

The only "controversy" I've seen related to this game, are these articles that say the word "controversy".

There is none. I sometimes hate authors.

I think the box art was legit and really sets home the nature of the game. No way do I see it racist at all and I'm black. lol

I wasn't aware there was any controversy over Far Cry 4 except the dumb box art shit dumped on it by people crying "pink suit: clearly gay."

The entire argument's a fucking joke and I don't think I have anything but disdain for anyone trying to push it forward.

Somebody's got to find a problem somewhere to fill a quota! The implications with the pink suit...give me a break! And the "superiority" of the man in the suit...because of___?
I certainly didn't think of anything controversial when I first saw the cover. Looks like a villain with standards, twisted they may be, but follows a code that makes him successful. FC3 was great, I expect nothing less. Take my $60 please.
I say no change to the box art, and really, if Ubi put any other human of any color on Buddha's lap, someone would bring up the stereotyping of other races...it would never end.

All the sites are just using this for click bait. Seriously when they announced the game along with the cover art all I thought was "Sweet! A new far cry.".

E3 is around the corner. There's going to be plenty of news to report. Please bury this and stop trying to create a controversy that doesn't exist.

Only as controversial as stupid articles make it out to be.

Are they going to call the collector's edition Far Cry 4 Drop The Soap limited ed. & give you a bar of soap & piece of rope?
