Does Black Ops 3 have a race problem?

Nick Gillham: "Recently we saw the latest installment of Activision’s bombastic war-FPS franchise Call of Duty hit our consoles and PCs. Black Ops 3 arrived on the back of generally good reviews with many saying that while the campaign was forgettable story-wise, it is still fun to play, and that the multiplayer is as good as it ever was.

The single player campaign this year made the bold move of allowing people to play the whole thing as a woman. No physical difference in terms of abilities, just appearance and voice, meaning that a whole new demographic can now be represented…. as long as you’re caucasian."

Im sick and tired of this agenda. You guys are eradicating Western culture with this nonsense.

SJW's ruining video games one game at a time.

I don't really see a problem with this opinion piece.

It seems like being anti-equality is the new group thought. No one is ruining video games because the industry and the medium isn't that fragile.

As NeckBeardBSMTDweller posted below, it has more to do with who is actually making the games. I think if we want to see more people of color in video games, we should be encouraging people of color to make more games. Become designers and developers.


Personal attacks notwithstanding, I think you are so eager to say something nasty that you aren't really considering what I am saying.

@Eonjay if you lack the ability to truly understand what the piece is meant to do you have the brain capacity of a 5 year old child.

Whoa, this place is starting to sound like one of those...not-so-nice websites =O Y'know, the ones w/ mirror-reversed Buddhist symbols & stuff O_O

Boo hoo, cupcake. Let's see your all inclusive game.

NeckBeardBSMTDweller1124d ago

Not to be insensitive, but if there were more people that were non-Caucasian in game/graphic design, maybe there would be. It would mean a lot more to see this organically, rather then applied by pressure. Plus in the Multi Player my character is currently a Chinese woman, so just because the single player didn't include them doesn't mean they didn't at all. BTW, Im a Caucasian man. Seriously though, that's like me saying, man I wish my hospital would hire more White Doctors, keep things even. By me, we have more middle eastern doctors than any other race / color / whatever. Just because there are more of those people in the medical field that shouldn't make the hospital or doctors office look bad, if they are the best at what they do.

It doesn't work that way with leftists. Only straight, white males must be rooted out.

And I am not white either and I can see this clear as day.

Eonjay1124d ago (Edited 1124d ago )

This is complete bull. No one is trying to get rid of white straight men. That is just propaganda.

Spotie1124d ago

Not trying to "root out" the straight white male. Just trying to add in the others.

That said, I don't see this as a problem, either. I'd like it if more people of my skin color were characters in games, but I'm not gonna start calling "Racism!" just because they're not.

Eonjay1124d ago


I can't believe that people actually believe that folks want to 'root out' white guys. Holy goodness. I loled so hard. Guys, get up and go outside. Stop letting people tell you what to think.

NeckBeardBSMTDweller1124d ago

And the answer is no, it doesnt.

annoyedgamer1124d ago (Edited 1124d ago )

First is was "we needs wiminz in da war" they added it. Now its "its racist" tomorrow it will be "its homophobic".

Chaosdreams1124d ago

I wouldn't be surprised if that's the next thing they point out.

NeckBeardBSMTDweller1123d ago (Edited 1123d ago )

Seriously, games are like any form of entertainment. If you don't like what you see... than don't watch/play it. For example, I don't watch Tyler Perry movies, and I wouldn't expect him to have more white people in there if I did.
