... is to create racially diverse and realistic characters.
<puts on activism hat>
I was just thinking about that while I was looking at some of these new games coming out (especially the new MMOs). All these new games are just full of white characters. And when they do have non-white or the option to make a none white in character creators, it's just a white featured frame with different skin tones.
When I see a Hispanic in an EA game. I see an Hispanic. When I see an Asian, I know it's an Asian. When I see a black person, it looks like a black person. But when I see attempts of these in other games, I see little effort in diversity. Seems like other companies will put 300% more effort in making a cat/human hybrid thing look realistic before they'll do anything about different human races.
As far as MMOs go, SWTOR raised the bar in that department and blew me away. When I first started to play that, I was running around looking at NPCs because it was so refreshing. After playing that, I can't see myself regressing to old, bland character designs in new MMOs.

Huh? Most MMOs either use raceless (in terms of facial contours) anime designs or were modeled after Asians. --- "Why do ppl say Steam/PC has DRM? The only thing steam does is prevent piracy, and there's nothing wrong with that." - Oil_Rope_Bombs

I was going to say make great games but that's cool too.
