Thread “Generic white dude video game protagonist.” How does this trend/phrase make you feel?
It’s a useful phrase. I’ve avoided lots of games in the last decade because I’m so tired of bland games about a heroic murderous white dude. Even though Mass Effect let you redesign your character, I was definitely put off by all the marketing material or reviews featuring Captain White-Bro. I never bought or played Mass Effect as a result. Boring white guy protags feel like code for ‘we don’t think the players have much imagination’. Give us some trans characters and POC, you cowards.
