@Snickersnee: I agree. There are many examples of women being good if not alright as characters ad on what they do in games. A problem that seems to be part of this debate is the neglect of context when it comes to debating the use of women. Sure, Lara Croft can be considered a sex symbol in a way but to ignore her background as an archaeologist, skilled fighter and accomplished individual is disingenuous and part of the problem. Also, people need to grow up and consider actual misogyny and degradation to women when it actually happens, instead of just throwing it around.
I usually try and not comment because I usually agree with you guys but I can't agree at all with this episode when it came to women not getting treated right in video games. Yes, most women in gaming are treated like sex toy, yes they're usually all about being rescued because they can't do it themselves. The real fucking problem is you people aren't buying the games that have strong lead females! lets look at the past female leads shall we! Mirrors Edge, a great game that was getting really good reviews that had a strong female lead. It's overall sales was around 1 million dollars. That's not nearly enough for a sequel, specially when you look at how EA runs thing. Beyond Good & Evil, this game again had a strong female lead that showed a strong female and was rated very highly, again was a commercial failure. So you expect these developers/publishers to make a strong female lead character when you won't even super them? At the end of the day if I'm in the business of making money I'm going to focus on the larger demographics that buys my games. I'm willing/wanting to hear peoples counter arguments. also if you only play call of duty your not a fucking gamer.
Yes, I agree. My beef isn't with Korey or you. But my problem I have is with the fact it's one race that seems to define who an individual is(the socially dominant one). And everyone else jus goes along with it. Why?
To defend Korey a bit, I've always learned that race was a social construct. It's something you have no choice in, society chooses what race they consider you. Ethnicity however is whatever you actually are, so if you are of mixed decent that is something that is not determined by society. It's what you are.
Colloquially the definitions seem to be different.
I feel as if Korey was trying to say, as far as society goes, if people look at you and to them you look black, you'll be treated and regarded if you are black. That doesn't mean that, as far as your actual ancestry goes, you are just black.
@Korey I'm 23 tell your girl I'm older enough.
But by saying that "a mixed person is black & thats it.", is saying I must look to white people to define my personal identity.
Why do these rules not apply to someone like Keanu Reeves? Whos mixed. Dean Caine, mixed(and the only non-white person to play Superman). It only seems to apply to people who are mixed with black.
Tiger Woods once said - "I am what I am, not what people perceive me to be"
