GamingThread So square can make drastic changes to FF7 in the remake but couldn't be bothered to not make Barrett an ignorant racist caricature? (Read Threadmarks)

Barrett is one of the best parts of the game and has possibly the best arc and character development thus far. It would be racist characterization if what you saw was all you got: a loud, muscle bound black man with anger issues. However, you learn almost immediately that his character is more nuanced: his anger is informed by just causes, he is held with respect by all of his crew, and his love and compassion for others is second to none. If anything, his image should serve as a reminder that we shouldn’t judge people based off their looks or petty first impressions.
