I'm Mexican. Am I Supposed To Be Offended By Guacamelee?

Kotaku - So I finished Guacamelee, and I think I am supposed to feel offended.

Story Quality - WTF?

Like this Website - No

Yes because no one can research or display Mexican culture other than Mexicans, no one else is allowed to talk about it or use it in games unless they are from Mexico and born Mexican... /s

It was so offensive, they just advertised Taco Bell through the entire games dialog, tacos, tacos and tacos! All the characters just made fun of Mexicans also with border crossing jokes... /s

I can't believe how long that crap is, such a stupid article. I can't believe how many people actually agree with it also..

I don't see people writing articles about Mario and how Mario is made by a Japanese person, who isn't Italian, who doesn't live in Italy either. How on earth could Miyamoto do something so offensive! /s


That's because Mario is white, check your privilege.

Mario is Italiano. Anyway, I love guacamole, tacos, chimichangas, and margueritas. Doesn't mean I hate mexicans.

Italian/Italiano or whatever isn't a race, it's a culture.

Edit: TheFallenAngel's comment below actually does a good job of explaining the difference between race and culture.

Actually, Italian is also an ethnicity, as is British, Irish, Swedish, Russian, German etc. They're not just cultures.

"a game made in Canada, by a team mostly comprised of Canadians, laughing at a farcical luchador who gets his powers from a talking goat."

Dear lord... now THAT's an elevator pitch

churros, huaraches, tacos, tortas, chilaquiles, enchiladas, pepitadas y tostadas

Better question. I am an intelligent gamer, should I be offended Kotaku can still post here?

Merrill3808d ago

I lost two bubbles for pointing out how terrible Kotaku's articles are and that it's curious that they never lose any stars on this site.

The rating system doesn't work for them(Kotaku) on N4G.

b_one3808d ago

i voted them down several times, still no effect.

b_one3808d ago

some mexicans was involved in developing this game, ask them...

admiralvic3808d ago (Edited 3808d ago )

That doesn't matter. Bros before Hos was still "sexist", yet it was named by a woman.

Veneno3808d ago

Guacamelee isn't offensive, the best part of it is when they translate all the references into Spanish. "Nino de Carne" "El Linko" are my favorite ones LOL.

Weirdly enough my white buddy found the name of the game not to be offensive, but stupid. I guess I kinda agree but its nothing to rage over.

I personally found nothing that is "negative" toward mexican culture throughout the game, just silly and dumb stuff.

You're kotaku. You're supposed to be offended by EVERYTHING!

LOGICWINS3808d ago

For some reason, this article makes me want to play Guacamelee even more lol.

Thatguy-3103808d ago

adorie3808d ago
