The Evening Post: Which Games Are Culturally Insensitive


Geek Alabama Evening Post

Tonight I am presenting the latest video from the PBS Game/Show YouTube channel.  Cultural Appropriation came to the forefront of our collective consciousness last year under the auspices of Taylor Swift and Iggy Azalea, but games have suffered from this same insensitivity for a long long time. From Custer’s Revenge to Grand Theft Auto 5, Far Cry 2 to Resident Evil — games don’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to nuanced displays of cultures. Join Jamin on this week’s episode of Game/Show as he looks at the how and why of cultural appropriation in games and looks at interesting games that actually do a good ob of displaying foreign cultures! Check it out!
