Forspoken

So why did people pretend that the initial scepticism and eventual big hate campaign for this game wasn't due solely to racism? If the game was exactly the same but with a cute white girl or more anime girl it would probably be called a cult classic and Ganker would say it saved gaming.

    It's a mediocre game, but yes I think it is fair to say that a lot of the criticisms heaped on it are a result of the protagonist being black. Even Resetera has been coping saying "no the game is just bad" but that is not true. Unfortunately, the well has been poisoned by people wrongfully calling things racist when they aren't, so when legitimate racism happens it is not taken seriously

      It's mediocre but my point is the only reason the hate is so big for it is because of a subtle racism in everyone. If the she wasn't black I don't think there would be any controversy about this game at all.

      I found it interesting. It's a unique way to give spell casting to a female character that isn't loads of rings/a wand etc.

        It was a cute way of doing it but ultimately just cosmetic.
        Also would have been a problem to balance if playtests indicated more or fewer nails would work better.

    Black/female leads are a bit of a canary test for a piece of media. If the creators are crazy enough to do something that will obviously damage their bottom line (non-White male lead) imagine what other terrible design choices they also made. So it isn't that people hate media featuring blacks/females, it's that we know that blacks/females are an early sign it will be garbage.

      People can make purchasing decisions based on race if they want, it's their money. But if she had been sexually attractive I would have overlooked her race.

      As this anon points out, it's a bit like a test, but making her attractive shows it isn't blatantly woke.

    It's just woke BLM Isekai not just because she's black but because of all that plus cringe dialogue, and the unlikeable main character and it's a mediocre game overall.

    Also because she's black.

      >Woke
      It is not. Frey is a street rat criminal who is constantly rude to everyone. The game calls her out for it and she seethes. It's actually pretty remarkable to play such a negative and nasty character that learns nothing and just wants to go home even though there is nothing there for her.

        It’s almost like wokies don’t have the introspection to see that when they write “real” characters they end up unlikeable as fuck. Same shit as Captain Marvel; the writers genuinely thought they were making an empowered, empathetic female lead.

          Frey is very intentionally unlikeable, however. You are not supposed to really root for her. She's different than say, Aloy, a character that you are supposed to like despite her being terrible. The game doesn't hide how Frey is and even at several points basically goes "just because your life was hard doesn't justify treating others poorly" and she ignores it. It's interesting to play a character like her

            They had to know that a snarky, chip on her shoulder, inner city hood rat type character can only be pulled off if they are shown to have a sense of humour and to have a deep seated vulnerability that they have to overcome by the end of the story. Frey fails as a character because she accepts the help of others with no sense of gratitude, she is selfish to the point of sociopathy, openly mocks people trying to help her and despite the devs attempt to make her relatable she relates to no one in the story.
            Frey is just a bad protagonist. Because she is so underwhelmed by everything that happens to her, it makes it harder for the player to care about anything in the world.

              She's a bad person but an interesting character. But as you say, it's less satisfying. I guess she does warm up a little by the end of the game but it's still not enough

      OP here, I don't really mean it to be bait I just wonder why there isn't more honesty about it. If you don't like black people in games fine but then just say thats the reason. The game wouldn't have any discourse if she wasn't black. Think Horizon Zero Dawn.

    Normally i'd say you're right.... but It wasn't the black girl that was the problem, even on here - the main issue everyone had was the focus of the game is on the story/writing and the story/writing was atrociously bad.

    It was about, like so very many games these days, the dialogue they showed us, for me. However, I expect to play this game sooner or later for free on psextra so I’m holding off judging it too harshly until I experience it, like any mature person would do.
