I think it's basically black women that get the short end of the stick, The last time I saw black chicks in a game was unreal tournament 2k4 and enter the matrix, and those were over ten years ago.

Though honestly I'd like more games that have non mexican south american characters, a game set over here would be a nice change. I'm kind of bummed out that everyone digs mexico over the rest of us because of the cool dia de los muertos and lucha libre stuff.

Yes. Pic related is a great example.
I'm making a game with a main female character named Juliet that has long blonde hair and is supposed to be beautiful. She's not going to be anything special, and there is no "girl power" shit. She's gonna be mostly silent with a few speaking lines where in one she tells a feminist to shut the fuck up, and just fuck shit up with her powers she gained from being experimented on by aliens.

Yes. Don't have retarded dialogue that speaks out about your character's race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender like its bigger deal then it has to be. Its not revolutionary nor shows 'great progress' as a society.

Also, don't market your game as having an X protagonist because you know its shit and the only way to attempt making profit.

Absolutely fucking impossible OP.

You see, there are millions of games with non-human protagonists, female protagonists, black, hispanic, middle-eastern, asian protagonists, crippled protagonists, gay protagonists and whatever little fetishized difference you guys love to wear as badges as something that makes you different from a blank, boring slate that is both yourself, your life and your perspectives. But those games are NEVER EVER going to exist for you because simply put, you're not looking to play them. You don't want to play them. You avoid them.

You avoid games, you'll never play any game with any difference because you watch whatever are the new releases that are marketed to 90% of the gaming players (here is where you need to think a little, turn in your answer before the end of this post) and complain that they aren't pandering anything to your loud minority that doesn't buy games but love to complain about them.

Much like the superhardcore audience who constantly whine and tantrum about casualization games, failing to realizes they are the crushing minority.

why should i have to make a character like that just to seem "progressive" and not "pandering"

why cant any one be non pandering or socially progressive. gaming shouldn't be about making people feel good about themselves or feel special. i want to have fun and if fun means my character has massive tits or be a "male power fantasy" then why cant it. im paying for it, siting down and playing it and enjoying it. im not forcing any kind of world view on others or treating others with disrespect because of said fact that i found it fun. on the flip side if i played a gay dude and had fun doing so why is that pandering. a fun game and a well written character isn't about race gender or orientation. its when those characters are inserted just to seem " progressive ' or when the tit monster is just obvious fan service that i don't approve, yet i don't complain about it because on the flip side i like titties and don't want people to tell me i shouldn't.

I don't understand why people are always up in arms about this shit.

Disclaimer: I am a big ol' homo

I don't know why people are so crazy about representation in games, unless you have a very specific story related reason why being gay is important for either character development or for the main overarching plot then just leave it alone and don't pander.

I'm fine with straight being the default because it is, I'm abnormal, I'm the non standard one and I'm really fine with that being reflected by the media i consume.

I also really, REALLY don't want to see hamfisted "gay" characters written by women with a point to prove either.

When making a female protagonist, never try and make it apparent you are playing a female. Make the character first, you can't have to mentality "hey I am making a female character now" Make the character and if the character happens to be female, that is what makes good foundations for the character.

Sounds like a character from the creators of adventure time and regular show.
>>
>>260394481
I agree with you. I don't give two shits about race or sexuality. My point was that his character wasn't defined by those traits at all and was just gay and black, it was never forced down anyone's throats or made into a huge progressive issue. He just had boyfriends instead of girlfriends and you could make him straight and the story wouldn't change at all. It's the best example I've seen so far of it.

Which is why every time I see Bioware saying or a news outlet reporting how gay this character is or how awesome the relationships are it's preposterous. If no one paid attention to race and sexuality there would be no problems with either. But everyone has to continue to be retarded.

Just concepts so far. This is that one game I want to make before I die because I want to get into game development. Though my idea doesn't fit into any genre I can think of, it's so fucking unique. I've been brainstorming it for over a year now. I'd actually draw concept art if I could fucking draw.
>>260394858
I actually planned on making her a male first. I actually just changed her to a female so I could add a love story portion that makes sense without the male ending up gay. Which having her be straight just fucks with them even more. And the love interest dies, which just pisses her off, so it's not even focused on it as story. I've put more thought into gameplay and making it work than I have the few loose pieces of story I have so far.

1 . Take any game where the MC is a male and his gender doesn't play an important role in the story (No medieval knights, or military shooters, etc.)
2 . Make the MC female
There you go, you now have a female vidya protagonist with potential.

Transistor was absolutely anti-sjw while having actual degenerates in it.
Whole catastrophe could've been avoided if one lesbian weren't so jealous of hetero couple with strong male lead.

And the main heroine is basically just a sword carrier, sword protects her and helps her to plan the battle.

I was just thinking about that today, and remembered that this game existed. Granted, the white guy is in the middle of the cover, but he's Swedish and no one picked him to play as.

I share similar opinions to these niggas.

People shouldn't be all up in arms about a fictional character's race or sexuality or bathroom habits or whatever. They should be judged as characters. If their ONLY defining trait is that they're black or gay or female or whatever, it makes them incredibly weak as characters for the sake of "representation".
I feel like one of two things could be utilized here, but those require devoting time to fleshing out an idea to make it interesting which a lot of AAA companies aren't willing to do:
>Have said trait not be the sole defining point of the character, or even make it completely irrelevent to the context of the game's plot. Like what >>260390363 said, make them a good character who happens to be black or gay or both
or
>Make it a defining point of the character, but actually elaborate on why it is in the context of the game's plot or character development in a meaningful way. Not like "I'm gay because I fuck dudes, did I mention that I'm gay" every other sentence for the sake of it. Kaine from NIER comes to mind as one of the reason's she's such a hardass was because she was mercilessly beaten and ostracized by the people from the town she lived[?] in because she was packing both sets of heat

Charlotte would probably be easily overpowered without John there to protect her, especially since in her original game she had to stand still to cast spells and she seems rather frail without her spellbook.

Dracula probably would toy with her like he did Shanoa though, and wouldn't team up with Death if she was solo.

That's to instill a sense of weak helplessness in the player. Notice that the more action based ones have male leads.

Resident Evil is the exception to the rule, where the females are just as competent as the male characters (even the ones that really shouldn't, like the medic Rebecca blasting her way through RE0).

Bayonetta is a female MC and SJWs fucking hate it.

The earlier Tomb Raider games would also have been hated by them if SJWs were paying attention to vidya back then.

And of course SJWs are all either neutral towards or hate the multitude of moe-moe Japanese games with female protags and mostly-female casts such as the Atelier and Neptunia series.

Which is to say that overall there are a shitload of games with female protagonists that aren't pandering to SJWs but men who want to see cute and/or sexy girls.

The love interest is the same sex or they are dating/ in a relationship with someone of the same sex. Just part of the character bio, but doesn't affect the plot at all. There could be dialogue between characters, maybe someone remarking on the relationship, but no need to make it the moral of the story and the entire game to revolve around such a triviality as gender and sexuality.

It's possible, but in today's climate unlikely.

Here's what gets me.
In the 1980's games were a thing for little boys, and girls were encouraged to do other things.

So why is it then that most developers are guys now?

This shit will work its way out naturally because games are a lot less frequently seen as babby m < 10 demographic and girls are "allowed" to play them by society.

It's generational.

This SJW shit right now is guilt tripping and/or golf channel "golf is fur wumen 2" men getting boners over the idea of women learning their hobby.

Self-fulfilling prophecy, there aren't many in the industry so it's less appealing.

I got in mostly by luck, I made my own maps for fun, posted some on the internets, got noticed, spent about seven years as a level/map/world designer before bailing the fuck out of the industry.

SJWs want to force change, which will never bring about a better industry in any meaningful sense.

I'm making a game where the protagonist is black. He's also a paladin. His blackitude never comes into play. I just think black skin and silver armour look badass together.

There are definitely exceptions!

I've been trying to find relevant statistics to back up what I pulled out of my ass. I'm a graduate student, and having gone back to school I've found that is a whole lot more common to see girls who are 20 that play games than it was 10 years ago.
