That is actually true.
The west is turning twards over sensitivity socially.
Yakuza gives a taste of the 90's where this nonsense wasn't a thing and people just had fun and played games to have fun, rather than to make social statements.
Not sure if this is where Sega was going with their statement but OK. Also, video games are inherently Japanese so the gaming community doesn’t take issue with Japanese leads and characters. The gaming community really only takes issue with black leads and female leads. Yakuza doesn’t shy away from its Japanese roots and that’s commendable. There will never be an overtly African game because blacks will complain that it’s racist toward them and whites will complain because they’re not the hero.
PC GAMING: BEST GAMES. WORST CONTROLS
A mouse & keyboard are made for sending email and typing internet badassery. Not for playing video games!!!
