Forums - Gaming Discussion - Games that never show other races?

After playing so many games I've never seen A protagonist central american from Honduras . I'm Hondureno American . Though I only seen an atagonist mastermind from nicauraga in black ops 2 and that's it . I was wondering if theres other races/Nationalities not seen in videogames?

Basically games are made by people, and they design their games after the experiences they encounter in life. You need more central american game developers, then you'll see more central american protagonists. It's as simply as that. As most game devs are based in north america, europe or japan, these countries mostly form the gaming experiences.

How many games actually specify the nationality of their characters?

I was thinking more of fighting games since that is the genre I play most ^_^

I don't care about what races appear in video games, I just enjoy games by themselves.

I love the EDF games. Played them a lot. Didn't take me tooooooo long to notice that all the character classes and NPC friendly AI, and panicking citizens are all white. It's a Japanese made game, and an argument could be made that all the character models are Japanese or European. Looks like Europeans to me. It's been around since 2004 and has either been all Euro or all Japanese for it's entire run.

Okay. And how many nationalities are featured in all of these games combined?
