Racial Diversity in Gaming

Posted on July 27, 2018

Listen to the show!

This week on the show, we’re talking all about racial diversity in video games. Perhaps a difficult topic, but an important one, we discuss the importance of having racial diversity in such a popular and important medium, and talk about the games that do it well… and those that don’t. Join Cam, Elliot, Jian and special guest Yasin as they discuss the importance of creating racially diverse games and the problem with so many games resorting to a white male protagonist as the default setting. We tackle the idea of character creation and how race factors in, along with the impact of race and culture when it comes to fantasy worlds. Don’t miss any of the action and don’t forget to check out the first half of this podcast to keep up to date!
