Bioshock Infinite and Racism - Part I
I wanna play this so bad
I don’t think I ever want to play this game. Especially with the first pic of what looks like a witch hunt and 2 black people about to be burned at the stake…
This left a bad taste in my mouth…I don’t want to play this shit.
Reblogging for BigBlackWolfe to see the racist fuckery in Bioshock Infinite.
Also, I’m seeing a whole lot of people calling individuals like myself who don’t want to buy this game for the blatant racism ‘stupid’
I have EVERY FUCKING RIGHT not to want to buy a goddamn video game because of this shit. EVERY RIGHT.
These same mothafuckers be on that ‘freedom of speech’ bullshit, but when POC use it to say “Nope, not here for this shit. It’s racist,” they want to shout us down.
I’ll spend my 70 dollars on something that is WORTH MY FUCKING TIME.
I GIVE NARY A FUCK ABOUT THE PRESHUZ STORYLINE
The racist imagery in this game was completely unnecessary and I bet they did it to be controversial on fucking purpose without any regard to how that would make people feel. Or with regard, but not for any concern more so than their own shits and giggles.
Like this game could have been just as good without the overblown racist imagery of Black people.
I mean I get they’re trying to show the whole “racism is bad look at this it’s bad” thing but come the fuck on, this is unnecessary
It wasn’t “unnecessary.” Racism isn’t something that needs to be explained subtly. The game is purposefully doing the opposite of what mass media today does: it’s not sugarcoating it. Columbia as a city is meant to represent the absolute worst of American history and American society, and that is exactly why it doesn’t hold back punches. A lot of our media likes to white wash history and dance around issues of racism in the very concepts of what it means to be American, but this game actually goes out of its way to show how unethical this ideology is.
The game actually does a great job of pointing out problems in our social foundations of racism, sexism, corporate capitalist abuse, religious zealotry. I often hear other P.O.C. on Tumblr complain that the media is skewed to avoid making American and white history in general look bad. If anything, people should play this game, because it doesn’t pretend like American society is perfect: it’s a game that takes the concepts that built this nation and pushes them to extreme to show how morally depraved they really are.
Columbia isn’t there for the player to like, and its citizens aren’t there for the player to want to emulate. It’s actually there as an example of exactly what is wrong with white colonialism, racism, xenophobia, white supremacist attitudes, etc.
This game is actually being attacked by white supremacists because they think it’s “anti-white,” since the game doesn’t pander. It’s brutal about its portrayal, but for a reason. A good reason.
^^^ That post.
Man I don’t particularly like the Bioshock series one way or another, but this game. This game did an excellent job with itself.
I really like what they did with the choices too. They have no real outcome on the game itself, but rather just deepen the connection players have with the game. I read an article from the developers early in the release about how you can choose to hit the couple with a ball or the announcer, and they had yet to see anyone on the the first run through choose to hit the couple. It had no real impact to the gameplay itself, just players felt it was wrong to do so. And that’s saying something, really.
There are lots of little things like that in this game, and I really like that they can get you that emotionally invested without having a real ‘reward’ other than knowing you did the right thing.
Ah, and for the first person who said it looks like two people being burned at the stake, they were an interracial couple being punished fro being caught together. If you choose not to hit them with a ball you see them together later.
Context means a lot guys okay; if you don’t know the story of course you’d assume it’s a super racist game when it’s really promoting AGAINST that but hey assume makes an ass outta you so there you go.
I just picked up this game and it’s one of the most wonderful stoytelling experiences I’ve had. Infinite just wouldn’t be the same without all of the racist movement going on throughout. It’s a Les Miserables story gone haywire. The moral choices in this game have real effects and sometimes they are truly difficult to make. The whole game takes place in the early 1900s, and is first set in a beautiful floating utopia. Minorities are depicted as they would have been during that time period for continuity’s sake. Hell, without all of the racist overtones, you wouldn’t have such a strong reason to hate the antagonists.
If you’re not playing this game because you’re scared of some old-age racist propoganda, you’re missing out for no reason.
seriously, did you guys even watch Django unchained? and you’re complaining about this? come on, its not racism. its history. sorta… its historical for its time period, even though its in an alternate dimension…
