This should have posted on Martin Luther King Jr.’s holiday. Sorry, I’ve been busy.
I believe that games are uniquely and exquisitely suited to explore content of character, since games, as a medium, are all about choice. That’s the nature of an interactive medium. It saddens and disappoints me that so many discussions of character in games begin and end at the character creation screen, with a Politically Correct checklist and identity politics.
Games as a medium deserve better. Gamers deserve better.
