      This. The guy was straight up the worst companion out of the three main games. He had a nonexistent personality, constantly advocated for the worst plans (venting Legion, volunteering to be the tech person for the suicide mission) and was hostile to new party members, and had one of the most abysmal romances where he actually cheats on you by the third game.

      Hell, hilariously enough, he's a super racist depiction in terms of his character/missions. His loyalty mission is focused on his father who left him and his mom to which, when you find the father, he's living in the jungle with a bunch of mind controlled slaves/harem. And don't forget the mission involving him in ME3 where you find out he's managed to get another woman pregnant within the short amount of time between the two games. And this happens even if you had romanced him, making him basically the only choice who actively cheats on you in the series.

      Jacob is the worst no matter which side you look at his character from.

          Why do you keep bringing up games no one else has mentioned?
          Right-wing people are more accepting and tolerant than left-wing people. You guys throw around the term "Uncle Tom" more than anyone else. You hate conservative black people just as much as white people.

          it was extensively marketed from a woke shit nog angle anon, it deserves the hate it gets for that.
          it would be real easy to not make both of the main characters black, and then also real easy to not make the marketing focus highlight it constantly so it gets 'praise' from faggy journalists, and it would have also been real easy to not make it extensively blacksploitation themed
          you can infact just stick a single black character in and then shut the fuck up, never mention it, never highlight it and not go all in on more and more black themed shit
          but that won't get you positive journalist coverage, which is what they wanted along with esg rating. so if they want that, they get shit on :^)

            This falls flat for me at least partially, I will have to do more research. I did not play Death Loop. However from a loose scan I can see that Death Loop features a black main character and that the director of Death Loop was Dinga Bakaba, a Parisian who worked at Arkane Studios. The same studio that made Dishonored. No I don't know anything about this guy other than his name and what he looks like and what I skimmed over on a couple of articles, seriously the guy is such a nobody that the Wikipedia page just redirects back to Death Loop's, however I can say with certainty that he ain't a white guy. I can reasonably say that he may be mixed. So he probably just wrote what he knew or what he understood.

            I bring this up because I've seen this shit before. Killzone being the biggest victim of this. Everybody knows Killzone as PlayStations alleged Halo killer. Except Guerilla Games never called it that, they just wanted to make the FPS they wanted to make. It was PlayStation magazine who called it the Halo killer and everybody who looked at the front page assumed Guerilla Games said it. So it got judged by a standard GG games never set for themselves.

            More to the point there's always going to be those screeching autists see a black man character in the main character role and think that it's a political move instead of just a guy making the character that he wanted to make. And because some unrelated media claim that this is a victory for the woke crowd that the developer signed off on it when in reality the developer was just doing what they wanted to do. Nobody assumes Japan is trying to make brownie points just because a character is outside of their race. They make American and European and Black characters all the time. But the people who say this sort of shit are so hyper vigilant that you go looking for poison in a well where there is none.

              Deathloop has a thin veneer of Blaxploitation over it (I honestly think they should have leaned harder into it, but they probably didn't want to ruffle feathers too much), which in the current climate translates 1:1 as woke garbage to a lot of people, when it's just a really, really watered down version of something like Black Dynamite.

          Deathloop sucked when compared to other rliop games, other immersive sims, and other Arkane games. They used token diversity to cover for all the games weaknesses and then when people criticized it, they could use the diversity as a shield.

          Because literally every game has it and puts it in. It IS possible to not have it in every game you know, it is quite possible to not make the trailer include them even if you do have them in the game also. These are all conscious, purposeful choices. Do you walk out your house and 3 out of every 4 people are black? No, so why is it that way in games. If you purposely do shit that doesn't align with reality even closely, people WILL notice, humans are good at pattern recognition even subconsciously.

Whether it's a good or a bad character is completely irrelevant, they just claim that because of too many bad depictions, they automatically assume that blackie will also be a moron and therefore it is necessary to preemptively hate it.

Notice same people "being racist" also post Black characters from "The Thing" "They Live" "Blade" "Men in Black" "Justice League" "Star Trek" "OG Star Wars" without any distaste to actor or character.

    There is a difference. Before people would actually give black characters a chance because they had the common sense to just see them as characters and not a tickbox on a checklist of inclusivity. Now people will see a black character; the knees start jerking and people have to scream how they won't buy this game now because the presence of a black person makes it woke garbage.

    It's really hard to put into words, but there's a difference between a character who is black and a Black Character.
    The former's race is an integral part of their character and of the plot. The latter feels like a political imposition.
    Can never quite verbalize the exact difference, but you can just FEEL it.

    Same goes for female/gay characters.

        You ever thought about why? Maybe it's because they're not included because it benefits the game. They simply do it to appear virtuous. It's why those characters are always one-dimensional.

        Those are fine, but the best ones are the ones whose blackness is an important part of their character, but they are not DEFINED by it.
        CJ is the best demonstration of this ideal. Being black is absolutely integral to his character, but he is not just "moronman". He is a black guy who grew up poor in a shitty ghetto and got sucked into a life of crime. His race is absolutely vital because that's the sort of story GTA SA is, but CJ has actual character traits BEYOND being a dumb stereotype.

          The problem is that, given what we've seen of morons in the past 50 years, those character traits are unrealistic to a ridiculous degree, even for a videogame. It's one in a million, similar to garden gnomes and Bobby Fischer.

              If it's a western AA game, then it's basically forced. If they actually cared about true diversity, they'd put Latino and Asian characters in their game. They never do, though. It is always the sassy, black woman with an afro who always ends up saving the white protagonist.

Black culture EXISTS but not all black people are apart of said culture. Like nordic culture exists but not every white person is apart of that either.

      Yes, all I want to do is say moron to some random 14yr old on the internet. No, I don't care about his feelings or anyone elses, while i'm playing a video game where I kill people.
      gayry like describing everything you don't like as "toxic" is the problem.
      All I wanted to do was play video games and occasionally talk shit, get shit talked back to me, have fun.
      Now private servers barely exist except for extremely small aspie players, nonexistent on any of the AA/AAA titles, and there's more positions in chat-police of game companies than actual game devs.

    You'd still have a problem with them, the difference is most of those characters were from games that released before you became 'redpilled'. In this context, being 'woke' is the same as being 'redpilled', two sides of the same extremist coin. Japan has been just as 'woke' as the west for decades, the only difference is you know jackshit about their politics and only look at their media.

      Being redpilled means you know what's really going on. Being woke means you live in an alternate reality. More and more people are being redpilled because the woke assault on society keeps getting more extreme and harder to ignore.

    They could always base a game off Yasuke.
    Weebs get mad about him, but he was a retainer to Oda Nobunaga and since his life is ambiguous post-Nobunaga's seppuku you can include a bitter sweet ending where he is no longer a slave but is now a ronin living in the woods foraging to survive in a distant land where the only reason he was spared was because he wasn't deemed human.
    Or where he offers his life up and they honor it so he could die along with one of the few people who showed any interest in him beyond being a tool for grunt work.
    It just needs to be him mostly killing a bunch of no name grunts and no name military officers under the orders of Nobunaga anyways and hanging out with historical figures around said time for some tea and blossom viewing.

    There is definitely a difference between the black characters from years ago vs the ones now. The older black characters felt like actual relatable "characters" that happened to be black. They showed that characters don't need to represent a race just to be relatable. The ones now are just all cut from the same ESG funded pandering cloth and all feel incredibly insufferable because of how transparent they are. And even if they aren't, the well has been so thoroughly poisoned by identity politics that any character be they black or female gets heat if they came out after 2014. They don't want to think that the changes they are forcing actually made things worse so they cope by placing the blame on people who can see though their bullshit and try to call us "racist".

        That isn't cool or heartwarming. It's trash.
        Being overweight and bald isn't a good thing no matter how much you tell yourself it's fine.

          No, but it's familiar and funny. Coach is likable because he's just a guy.

            cop out for bad writing
            characters are meant to be someone, if your character is the average american then that's already a failure in making a good character.

              And this answer is a cop out for autism. If you can't detect character nuance in a seemingly ordinary character, then you're a bad reader/player.

      I think when OP said "we" he meant a general assumption of the more reasonable Ganker posters, not drooling retards.

      Johnson is basically Apone from Aliens and Dylan from Predator crammed into one character.

      This thread just makes me realise that Jacob is apparently the first name devs think of when it's time to create a black character

    Sazh is literally the best character in that fucking atrocious game.

    I know you don't want to hear this OP but most of the characters you listed are gangsters, characters with personalities inspired by blacksploitation media and walking stereotypes
    Honestly, the only good examples there are Anderson, Sazh, Louis and Jacob (ME)
    >but Jacob was boring
    He was but he wasn't anything I said above

      What stereotype is Sheva?

        Sheva is a little trickier
        I like her, but as expected of Japanese developers at the time, she gets used through her (admittedly hot) Robin hood and "tribal" outfits
        The people in previous threads entirely dedicated to Sheva are right when they say Capcom could not release a game like RE5 with their execution of Sheva again today, which is why they've completely dropped her

          Eh, the tribal outfit would be dropped for sure, but I could see them bring her back without any other changes. That Red Riding Hood outfit was her best one, though.

      Jacob was abandoned by just father so he could spend his life raping mind controlled women on a jungle planet. If that ain’t the niggest then I don’t know what to tell you dude

      So are 99% of black dudes you meet. It'd be nice to have a few other types represented though. For example, the rare Nigerian immigrant whos super upbeat and hardworking (and not a rapist).

    Cole Train was a great character. Super accurate too, every bluecollar job I ever worked had at least one cool ass Black of the same stripe. He was just like the guys I played ball with too. Acted and sounded like real black dude, while not being a nog.

    Almost as if they were fleshed out thought about characters and not some shoe-in diversity checklist like every other game does now days. I don't mind as long as they are well written, and there entire character is revolved around being black.

    Did people actually like Sazh or was he just the least-intolerable member of the cast?

      He was the only down to earth good guy in the entire cast that didn't suffer from brain damage like Vanille. Dude just wanted to get his son back.

    Pretty sure nobody here likes Franklin from GTA V. He spends the entire game going
    >gotta get muh paper
    and doesn't really learn anything or change. He's basically just an observer to the Michael And Trevor Show

    What do we think of Jax? I think he was probably the best black character in a game until later when they started making him wear durags and talking jive.

    yeah, Ganker didnt start whining about minorities in video games until muh culture war garbage infested the site, as evidenced by the fact that almost every game in your list is at least a decade old. What's your point? That Ganker is full of shit?
