SO will these people be receiving a tonne of hate mail and death threats for pointing out how to do race in games?
This is a serious look among games developers into reaching new standards of quality about race. Oh and in response to Thunderfoot trying to distance games from being much more?
No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend’s were.
Each man’s death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
That’s like suggesting that Doctor Who should just be a kids show and keep away from poetry… When the Doctor convinces a little girl to not sacrifice herself to an awakening god, he quotes Lewis Carrol by listing the things that come from a unique explosion in a star (“shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings,”). There are little references to poems and little rhymes used to enhance the creepy factor and drama.
To say these things and this depth detracts from games means that we would ignore great games that have these things in exchange for Tetris and Asteroids.
