All I'll say here is wow; so many people are putting SO much effort to twist things around to push their agendas. IT's funny how transparent some of you are.
I'm not transparent though. My skin color is dark. Go ahead then, ask me if i feel included. Surrounded by caucasian looking male and female heroes. Do it, ask a negro fella if he feels included when a collage of the stereotypical white game protagonist can be done the same with the stereotypical white female protagonist. Ask if that darky you're calling a bigot feels more included than ever before, after this big diversity switch has gone from male caucasian to female caucasian, when on top of differing skin color gender is added.
Diversity has this ring of "all inclusivness" to it. But who exactly is this diversity trend ment for? For all of us diverse people, right? Right?! Not just for all of those many many women gamers who are as vigoroursly active as their masculine pendants. Not here on this board. Or at a big german games website. Or another non gaming related forum. Well, i'm sure they must be somewhere... i guess...
But i digress. Go on, ask the question, white boy. I dare you.
Do you feel included? Do you feel that inclusion needs to only represent you or not you or only females or only males? Do you honestly think one game or franchise is going to solve everything? Some games will have gay protagonists, some black, some straight, some female, etc.
I genuinely don't know what agenda you're trying to push, but you can't bitch and complain about inclusion initiatives just becuase they don't represent you specifically. (at least that's the impression I get from your post; feel free to correct me if I'm misreading it.) I'm not a woman, a lesbian, or trans, but I can still celebrate the inclusion of lesbian or trans women protagonists or characters. I'm not black or asian or middle-eastern, but I can praise that inclusion. I don't need to be specifically represented or included to feel good about games that don't just cater to straight white males. The Last of Us Part II is a step forward, a symbolic showing that you can have female protagonists and lesbian/trans characters in a game. Don't expect the issue to be resolved and everyone to be satisfied by one game.
So yeah, if you're in the mood to pull that shit, I do dare to ask you. Do you feel included? Do you? And if you don't, is that such a bad thing?
At least tell me what your goal is here so I can reply accordingly.
I got it all, baby!
