Stanley Parable - Is It Racist?

Recently, Galactic cafe, the developers of Stanley Parable, removed a training video called the Choice, because it was deemed offensive. The scene depicts what can be reductively described as a white man setting a black child ablaze. Let me repeat that for you, a white guy setting a black child ablaze. Funny, right? Well, at least I thought it was. I have a weird sense of humor the likes of Dave Chappelle have nurtured. Racism, to me, is funny. Especially, when it is something as ridiculous as a white guy setting a black child on fire, but is there something more intellectual going on with the Choice video?

Twinfinite - Is it attention-seeking?

GentlemenRUs3886d ago

Urgh now it's leaked out of the Steam Discussion so websites can get hits...

So yeah! They are attention-seeking!

BABY-JEDI3886d ago

I think it's an interesting slant in gaming that makes you wonder why your playing this game.

Hmm, South Park could get away with a joke like that (and has) and nobody would bat an eyelid.

Its weird how people seem to react differently to stuff in games, like theyre surprised whenever satire or commentary, or dark humour is presented in game. I guess its good that discussion ends up happening but it'll be nice once people stop treating games so differently to every other medium.

That's because nobody watches South Park...

mixelon3885d ago

Im preeeeetty sure more people watch SP than played the Stanley Parable.

~3 million in the US alone, legally.. Not including all the internationals and people who torrent it.

Quantum Break
The Swapper

I think Inscryption is the best game on that list. PT and Returnal i would offer. Returnal deserves a spot over some of the listed games. Especially after chapter 3. Maybe even Alice MR? Death Stranding? Kojima all together. To much smaller degree Dead Space. I'm spitballing.

I didn't play Thumper enough to see beyond the visual spectacle. Curious choice.

SullysCigar404d ago (Edited 404d ago )

I'd add FEAR and RE7 (when Ethan starts getting visions, especially in the boat) to that list.

Edit: and Here They Lie

Petebloodyonion404d ago

What no Eternal Darkness on the list?

Only makes me think of gatcha loot crate game specifically built to play your mind into becoming an addict.
