Reality Fighters on Vita.

I don't know that we should call them "racist" though. I think there is this mass lumping of things as racist now days, and it desensitizes people to real racism.

A stereotype in jest is totally different than the systematic persecution of a group of people based on a single quality.

I've noticed that Japanese games are more open to placing stereotypes on characters to have other characters seem superior. Yakuza series is a good example IMO.

Why the hell is there still people who think "Muslim" is a race ? It's a religion.

If you cannot recite the Punch out theme I'm afraid your parents failed you. Sorry you had to find out this way Mr MacGrath.

I'm sorry, but none of the games on that list holds a candle to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

That game is the lowest of the lows.

Haha who thinks that RDR is racist should check some history books... It represents this time period pretty good and or course there is also a little bit if irony in there. Who ever doesnt get the meaning of RDR should not write anything on the internet...

people dont get that , people nowadays are too sensitive
Gh05t  +   220d ago
People now days dont know the definition of the words they use.

And the Irish have a very gloomy beginning in this country and if you haven't heard about that you should also look up the Chinese history too (as it pertains to that time period as well).

...What are they teaching in schools now?
M83_  +   220d ago
The Irish were seen as no better than black people in many parts of the world. The UK would have signs saying "no blacks, no dogs, no Irish". There was a huge amount of racism, discrimination and oppression going on back then.

But, thankfully, that's for the history books. As an Irish person myself, I wouldn't be offended by the real depiction of Irish treatment over the centuries and the oppression that came with it, that's what happened. I think I'd be more offended if someone tried to alter history to make it seem less oppressive for us.
M83_  +   220d ago
Yep, that's history. It'd be inacurate to manipulate it any other way. As bad as it was, that's just the way it was. As long as we all recognise how absurd and wrong it was back then, we can reflect on, and depict history and how far we've come since. There's nothing wrong with that.

12 Years a Slave and many other movies of that theme are racist and harsh, but that's the reality of it, and I think that's what gives movies like that authenticity, and ultimately, their impact.
Gh05t  +   220d ago
As this website doesn't load properly and all I have are the videos and not the text I will have to say that most these videos are not racist at all but rather extremely bigoted.

Which brings up a point of know your definitions if you are going to write an article about a topic. Its good to know what the word means.
Goro  +   220d ago
RDR is supposed to be racist because that's the reality of how people were back in those days.
Sketchy_Galore  +   220d ago
I clicked this accidentally with my fat thumbs and honestly thought I had accidentally clicked on one of those cheesy fake story ads like 'you won't believe what Katy Perry did next'.

Do not forget to rate the content and the site.

I'm sorry, but how does Postal not make the list? It is intentionally the most racist game ever made.

Horrid "article" and we use that term as the author didn't even give a reason(s) as to why they find these games so offensive. Just a bunch of videos of the games.
LightDiego  +   220d ago
Red Dead Redemption and Scribblenauts? lol... is that a joke?

Custer's Revenge isn't racist. It's a love story.

I actually wish this "article" was based on ignorance, because at least then the "author" would have somewhat of an excuse. Sadly, I'm fairly confident that the "author" created this purely to get clicks and he/she should be ashamed.
