Portal is probably the last new IP in video games that didn’t star a white, 18-35 year old white dude with short hair, stubble and a scowl. That game came out six years ago.

I don’t understand how people can get mad and confused when you point out that there’s not enough creativity or diversity in video games. Granted, there was definitely room for growth in the 80’s and 90’s, but we’ve fallen way behind since then. We used to have space pilot furries and master thieves. Dragons, bandicoots, hedgehogs and plumbers. Women who were archaeologists and bounty hunters.

So why are we still marketing games exclusively to fraternity douchebags? There’s no excuse for having such narrow goals in 2013.

THIS IS NOT OKAY.
