Watch Dogs 2 And The Steam Users Who Hate Black People

So, the main protagonist of the freshly announced Watch Dogs 2 is black. Big whoop, right? It’s not as common to see a black protagonist as it is a generic angry white man out to avenge a dead family member, but it’s far from unheard of, right?

CJ in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, James Heller in Prototype 2, Lee Everett from The Walking Dead, there are plenty of good examples, many of which have been able to appear without a huge outcry.

But of course, we now live in a world where “SJWs” are being blamed for anything even slightly deviating from the ubiquitous and the abundant. So it is that the appearance of a black protagonist in both Mafia III and Watch Dogs 2 have made some people upset. Some really miserable, perpetually offended people.

Edgy conspiracy theorists are mad because every one videogame out of hundreds has a black lead. It’s an overused word, but sometimes it’s apt – entitled is most certainly the perfect descriptor for them.

Let’s take a “fun” trip to the Steam forums and see what users are saying.

MentholFox, in a thread titled “Shoehorned black character why can’t we be Aiden?” had this pearl of wisdom to throw at us.

Why Marcus and not Aiden, I don’t want to play as an affirmative action MC… Look at the demographics of San Fran it would be more plausible if I played as a homo or an asian than some random black dude. Considering they make up 6% of the population in SanFran fam

While of course there are plenty of people who argued against this pathetic outburst, some posters merrily joined in, such as Fly_Fucking_Low.exe, whose username reflects their approach to comedy.

Black people don’t know how to use technology, this story is already ♥♥♥♥ and doesn’t make any sense.

And of course, we couldn’t have a discussion about anything without someone throwing the word “cuck” around. Mysterion provides the obligatory misappropriation.

EMBRACE DIVERSITY, PREPARE YOUR CUCKSHED

Oh and here’s Skexer, who needs to be told something – if you’re worried that what you’re saying is going to make people call you a racist… you’re probably being racist.

It’s radiating the gaming industry and it doesn’t feel all to great, Rise of the Tomb Raider apparently changed Lara’s model because she looked too ‘sexy’, Mafia 3 just had to be about a black guy rising up against the Italian Mafia and most likely the racial bigotry.

It may be sublte propaganda, I just hope it doesn’t infest the plot too much. Don’t complain too much, or we’ll be called racists.

The thread goes on for 45 pages and it devolves into trolling and people being as offensive as they possibly can to “trigger” people. The final post before it got locked came from the everso charmingly named Dangerous Faggot.

Oh, I’m sure you have proof for that analysis? It’s actually the dindus who are the most racist towards white people, because they have an inferiority complex. Their race is the least developed despite being the oldest. They know that, which is why they commit so much crimes.

Black people in the USA are 13% of the population, but commit 54% of all homicides.
Source is FBI

On the frontpage we have a thread titled “Politically Corect Game?” and we can all appreciate the irony in Nefarious’ inability to spell “correct” correctly. Here’s what they had to say…

Why is the protagonist black in the latest games? Mafia 3 being an example but not only?

Death to political correctness and death to SJW.\

Erretter adds what I’m sure they believe is excellent observational humor to the discussion.

Ubisoft is genius! The game is about a person running around, causin chaos, is hated by everyone, is shooting People in the face without warning.

HELL! OF COURSE HE HAD TO BE BLACK!

Hazardous Duke set up another thread to air their grievances. In a post titled “Why do all the new games coming out have either Women or Black male leads?” our intrepid hero laments just how oppressed they are!

I reiterate the title of this post. Honestly this is getting ridiculous. Look at battlefield 1 now watch dogs and basically any other Ubisoft game that’s coming out.

♥♥♥♥ing SJW’s.

Here’s Coolsiideri presenting a classic argument that Status Quo Warriors love to trot out, where any diverse character exists just for the sake of political correctness. It’s an argument designed for someone who wants to believe they’ve won a debate but doesn’t want to put in any work to actually argue.

And of course they talk about hurt feelings too. From what I’ve seen, the most easily hurt and upset people are the angry white guys who flip out when they so much as see a black person or woman in a game.

You shouldn’t have minorities in a game just to represent minorities. You’re supposed to make a video game with good characters and stellar gameplay, not fill out some arbitary SJW checklist so that no ones feelings get hurt.

In the thread “Protagonist beeing black” FU Bloody, as well as making me think about bees, starts off their argument with literally the best disclaimer.

Im gonna start of by saying im not a Racist

Do we really need a black Main character. just as much as a female protagonist?
what’s your thoughs about this?

like more realistically the story should be about a big fat white guy who never leaves his chair or an Asian….

Watch_Dogs2

And gfytfyt throws in their own little conspiracy theory to keep things spicy.

Because alot of cuckcompanies want to show how ‘right on’ they are by representing some stupid minority of a demographic that doesn’t represent the majority of their player base. Alot of it is propaganda, plain and simple. America..meh you can get away with it, but as i pointed above, demograhically, it doesn’t make sense. But europe is a big nono. It’s white. Pure and simple.

There’s a lot more in the forums, and it’s all pretty astounding stuff.

Of course, there’s no telling how much of it is trolling or poor attempts at comedy and how much of it is genuine, but given the Donald Trump avatars and the fact I’ve seen similar sentiments from many genuinely awful human beings, it barely matters because the difference is miniscule.

That the appearance of one black protagonist out of so many games causes this much uproar – even if half of it’s an attempt at a joke – is just kind of pitiful.

As always, the prevailing emotion I draw from these reactions is fear. This is the lashing out of scared boys who subscribe to the zero sum game and believe anybody else getting some representation is a direct removal of their own. The changing world is terrifying for them.

As I noted, there are plenty of Steam posters doing their best to argue against it and not be the dickheaded edgelords, but god damn is that a lot of dickheaded edgelords milling around.

The sheer avarice required to be so angry when a tiny handful of games don’t 100% cater to you and your background is on a level I don’t think I could ever conceive.

Still, there’s comfort in knowing that, as time goes on, it’s only going to get worse for them.

You can’t really stop this ball rolling, folks, and if you’re so sensitive and hurt over this, you’ll be in tears later down the line.

Your article is actually placed in a position of judged bias. I didn’t play watchdogs 2 because I am racist, I didn’t play it because of the terrible characters. Also, I don’t want to be a hipster black guy when I play a game. That makes me racist? Or does that make you a sensitive snowflake?

When I heard that someone criticized The Witcher 3 for not including brown/black people, I rolled my eyes. Game developed by polaks, based on the series of novels written by polak, based on a slavic folklore… Why would there be brown people in it? Now there’s Watch Dogs 2. Set in contemporary San Francisco Bay Area. Why would it have brown/black protagonist? Why the hell not?
This debate proves that there are racist idiots on both sides of political spectrum.

There is always a minority who don’t want to play a protagonist that’s a different race, I think they could be won over if black protagonists where any good, so far they have been just average to alright, even the ones you mentioned where pretty generic. After Mafia 3 people where expecting Watchdogs 2 to be the same and in some ways it is, allot of busy work, allot of doing the same thingy, allot of repetitive gameplay with some nuggets of good stuff in there with the main quest line and banter.

Two AAA games have single (as in only one) protagonists in each… And they’re black guys? Tell me they’re fleshed out personalities (or as fleshed out as the previous protagonists in the series) and aren’t walking stereotypes, and I will be genuinely interested in purchasing games that never, at all, in any way flickered on my radar before.
…And at least some of my motivation wouldn’t be spite.

So people want the same boring straight white guy character in every game and movie and television show? I guess while people of color are at it we just should probably wipe their asses too and just you know revert back to slavery since white people were to lazy to build their own damn country, they exhausted all resources just to come take another race from their home, just to do their own work. But yeah, anyway I guess we can still have the same generic white guy story, that never gets old, right?

Jason Li

While I agree that having a black character in your game is definitely not extreme (or at least, shouldn’t be), SJWs are (generally) not extremists. It’s a slur used on the internet about people who basically want to change things for the better and aren’t afraid to talk about it, used by people who can’t see why they want to change things. It’s then been embraced by certain people.

I see. The definition of “SJW” I had been going by was not meant to describe progressiveness in general, but rather those who take it to the extreme.

Is it really a nonissue, or is an issue that doesn’t affect you? Because those are two different things.

If the people complaining are in the overwhelming minority, why are they still the ones that are being catered to? If it wasn’t an issue, why would it be such a big deal everytime a game does decide to feature a black main character? Why is it still something that barely any games do?

You’re right, this DOESN’T affect me, and ideally it shouldn’t affect anyone else. Games are suppose to be a fun escape from the mundanity of everyday life. That’s why I don’t care what the race, sex, gender, or whatever else of a character is so long as the game is fun mechanically and the story is interesting and engaging (if that applies). People now-a-days on both sides of the argument are so focused on bringing politics into everything that it just poisons the entire landscape.
