One of my ongoing issues with the games industry..
When developing Assassin’s Creed III, Ubisoft was about to stick the Mohawk tribe in teepees. Thankfully a lightbulb went on over someone’s head and they said, “We should research this shit.” Live sources were consulted, books were opened - or Wikipedia was fired up - and it was discovered the Mohawks lived primarily in longhouses. Hooray! Learning!
I’d like to see game devs take this sort of thing much more seriously, and I’d definitely like to see a lot less rolling of eyes and moaning about “political correctness” when a studio is criticized for this kind of laziness.
Seriously, we’re desperate to convince ourselves that video games are all growed up, but if an author wrote a book situated in Pakistan and made Arabic the primary language, they’d rightfully be flushed down the toilet.
my parents split after they made me. i am a volcano. they are tectonic plates. follow for more geological humour.
i really hope the two people who just followed me aren’t looking for geological humour or you are going to be earth-shatteringly disappointed
