You do, not this game. It's physically impossible for this game to suck, YOU on the other hand... Have no problem with that i see.


No, it's not racist. Whoever thinks so should get their brains checked. WE are all humans, no matter what colour of our skins. Black White Yellow Pink Orange Brown Blue Green Red. OFCOURSE there are gonna be some more dark skinned majinis in this game... It takes place where the sun is up more than it's down. Pigmation is a very simple and logical mutation of body, if a white Swede was down in africa since he was born he would also develop a darker skin.

So all saying it's racist. Just give it a rest and see it for what it is, a videogame, an entertainment piece of awesomeness.

ME... GO... BUY... FIRST DAY..

Only the 360 version. PS3 is as clean as Jesus. Racism only occurs on evil Bill's console. Only on N4G.

1. Resident Evil 4 only had white Spanish ganados. No one complained, no one said anything. It was just killing a bunch of "Virus infected ganados." No one was black either. If there was one black person, I swear to god that black people would've screamed "OMG, they put the black guy in an all white geographic location just for the sake of killing the black guy! RacisS!"

2. Now, on to Resident Evil 5 in some third world African country. Great, you'd expect Africans in Africa to be y'know, Africans. But nnoooo, they had to throw in some latinos, whites, and south Asians to cater to the black audience who threatened to sue. How is that realistic? Y'know what, why not just forget that black people exist. Don't include them in any game whatsoever. Then they'll ***** and moan about not being represented in games.

Anywho, Resident Evil creators just showed us that it's perfectly okay to kill white Spaniards, but NOT okay to kill blacks.

That to me is racist.

Bubbles for common sense.

the game does suck indeed. also i wish it was racist just to offend all the cry babies saying it is/was racist. unfortunately capcom is gay and added asians, whites, hispanics, etc into the middle of africa.... ridiculous

cayal3536d ago

incogneato3536d ago

Viper73536d ago

We have been killing ppl from all over the world in video games, even Americans in GTA kinda games. Not to mention that in many of the games the player takes control of black skinned character killing white skinned ppl.

Dunno but as far as I can see blaming resident evil 5 any way racist is retarted.

"its not like chris is yelling DIE F*ckERS!! whilst shooting angrily".......chris isnt mouthing those words......but I know i will lool ...I purposely shoot the zombies in the face so that i can land a forceful "straight" and imagine a black illegal immigrant who is infesting my country....i have no problems with africans or with black people....they are very nice ....especially nigerians......but hey.....stay in your countries! gdamnit! dont expect to come here, have a 5 star service, rape our girls, AND still complain about the food! ....yeah ban me all you want and cancel this message , but this is the truth in my country and its a collectively felt sentiment.
so yeah.......i will enjoy re5 very much...thanks capcom for letting me express my innermost feelings

The fact is that everything is racist for blacks when it's not in their favor.When a cop arrest 1 of them it's because he's black,not because he was dealing drugs,shot someone or something else.They are always running or speeding away from cops.They claim it's because they are scared theat the cops would kill them not because they have drugs in the car or they broke another law.The worst part about it is that everyone of them are marching to protest what ever happen even when they are in the wrong.

Not far from where i live at they started a big sh*t.They had about 6 colored guys almost beat to death 2 white guys.The 6 colored guys was arrested not only for that crime but they were all on probation to.The blacks started a big sh*t.the rev sharpe even came down with the naacp and try to claim that they were arrested because they were blacks.They said that the white guys been after the colored guys for awhile and if it was the other way around the cops wouldn't have done anything.They might have been,i don't know.The fact is that they still didn't have the right to gang jump them and almost kill 1 of them and to top it off break their parole.

The same thing with the radio talk show imus.he called a colored women basketball team nappy hos.It was wrong and he shouldn't have done it.The fact is that they have colored rappers that say the same thing but worse.They say things like they are gonna rape them N hos,or kill a cop.The Fact is that al shapen didn't go after them to make them stop.when it came to imus he didn't stop till he got the man fired and the man even apologise.

They are always saying they want to be treated just like white people and they are.The fact is that they want to be treated better then white people.They say they want to be equal but every time affirmative action come up in the senate again for a vote all the colored people push for it to be voted in again.When a white senator say something like it's an old law to help black to be equal but it's now to vote it out all the colored big wigs all start hinting that he hate blacks.I work with a lot of colored people and some are my friend.The majority of them are always saying that they were slaves and before it's over the white will be their slave and they said that it has started all ready.

The fact is that not 1 of them was a damn slave.That all happened in the past.A while back they all wanted the government to pay them for their pain for being slaves.That was bullsh*t.Their isn't 1 colored person that deserve anything from the government.the fact is that they want money for not doing anything.They wont to be treated like whites then they should just stop all this slave sh*t because tyhat has nothing to do with you.

Where i live at they have mlk streets all over,hell almost every road has mlk in it.They wanted to name another road mlk a while back.The first time it came up for a vote it failed.The whites voted no because they said that they have to many already and they were right.They had a big sh*t over it.The colored people started a petition to get the whites off the boad that voted against it claiming that they don't like blacks.They had a big march over the boad failing to vote yes to name a road mlk for the 1000 time in my town.The white members finaly caved in and voted yes just to shut them up.I was reading 1 article and they want the goverment to make a national holiday in the honor of abama.The fact is that they have a president day and that include abama to.The fact is that they want every thing to go their way and when it don't it's raceist.Abama shouldn't have a national holiday.They have a lot more president that deserve their own day before abama.

they have

1-george washinton out 1st president
2-lincoln who kept the U.S together and was assinated
3 kennedy who was assinated
and others.i'm tired of hearing people compare him to lincoln and fdr.Abama didn't do anything to even be considered in the same sentence as their names.The fact is that abama was only in the senate for 3 years and out of the 3 he was running for president.he keep saying that the rep got the economy in the shape it's in now.The fact is that it was the dem to.As a matter of fact abama should blam hisself too.Abama voted for every spending bill they had,he never voted no on 1 of them.

Don't get me wrong i think georg bush is the worse president in history so far.The problem i have with abama is how he gets away with everything because the bias news is for him.When bush was jogging they said that it's a sham for him to jog when the U.S is in trouble.When abama was jogging they were writing a love story about him saying how muscular he was.They never ask him hard questions.

abama said that he wont have any lobbist working for him,he has 3 of them.The man he hired to run the U.S economy out cost the last compay he worked for billions pluse received 20 to 30 million for doing it,and this is the same thing abama said he's against.The person he hired to run the irs never paid his taxes.The fact is that abama is just another politician who lies his a** off.Abama got his trillion dollars he wanted.i agree with him that something need to be done now.The problem is that a lot of it is pork.They have 900 million $s to build a golfcourse with a private club.100 million to teach about stds.They have a few hundred million going to the same scientist working already to studt a way for clean energy.I agree with him about his energy policies.the fact is that these programs and others in it will do nothing to start jobs and help the econy now.How can hundreds of millions go to a few scientist who's working already to study clean energy help people get jobs now.Abama said that japan had the lost decade.The fact is that china borred money just like abama want to do now to help the economy out but it didn't help and this wont help either ir will only put us deeper in dept.

SL1M DADDY3536d ago

Because regardless of skin color, if I were being attacked by such I would not hesitate to cap them. Sorry, but I am not going to be picky if presented with the immediate need to kill a white, black or hispanic zombie. The first one to go will always be the one closest to me. Racist it is not. Now, the racial squabblers need to STHU. You can't even use the term Black Hole without being called a racist these days... Good gravy!

blackpanther253536d ago

but you guys shouldn't be so sad when you see other races in this game. Have any of you guys been to a country in africa. Im from Nigeria i can vouch that around where my house is there are a lot Indians,Chinese, and a few Caucasians. As a matter of fact there are a hugh amount of indian doctors in my country. Also the most of North Africa has fair looking (they either look Caucasian or Arabic) africans.

these are the type of ppl that make the situation worse....
its bad enough that resident evil 5 can be seen as a black woman helping a white man kill black ppl but, she wants to have sex with him also making her look like a whore...
