Racism Conundrum
Racism Conundrum: RE5 proves society still has issues.
Evil Resides

As you probably know, Resident Evil 5 stirred about some concern about racism in games. Here was a game being developed in a homogenous country that had a white guy running around shoot black zombies that didn’t even really look like zombies (although, they’re technically not zombies but have a parasite inside them). However, looking back at Resident Evil 4, most of the “zombies” looked like regular people too until their heads exploded with a parasite slithering about.

If the world truly didn’t have racism, the game would be seen as one man shooting another man. Same goes for a lot of things but the media has to grab at something or they’ll be out of work.

On a lighter note: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nsSKu1tVyg Watch first minute, it’s well worth it.
