Sleeping Dogs would have sold more if you weren't so lame.

lol more overly defensive posts, TC doesnt want the character to be caucasian he simply trying to highlight the fact that people in general just have either a conscious or subconscious bias.

I dont think it would matter. A good game is a good game


the fundamental argument isnt so much about a game being good or not, i mean quantifiably this game was as good if not better than many others and yet its sales were no where close to the critical reception that it got.

No. This dude is just lame. It's not even about this topic in particular. Just all-encompassing lameness.

Playing as a white guy would have had zero effect on its sales, it didn't sell well because people thought that it was,

1) another crappy GTA clone

2) the sequel to the poorly received True Crime series

White guy or not, no one was going to give it a chance.

Strength is the only thing that matters in this world, everything else is just a delusion for the weak.

To be fair, I only bought the game because it was cheap.
Probably the best $20 spent on a game last year.

It has never been a problem before, so I doubt it's the problem now.

I doubt race was an issue at all...more so the quality of the game.
