Do you think Sleeping Dogs would have sold more with a caucasion protagonist?

Quite the opposite actually. I have said from the beginning that if the game was set in an American city with a white protagonist it would have been treated as the mediocre game that it truly is.

Gamers love them some "Asian stuff" for some odd reason.

I buy used games. If you're a MGS fanboy and want to argue....don't bother, I assure you your opinions mean nothing to me. Just a heads up.

What every game of this kind should have is a create a player even if it would be race specific for certain settings.
Saints Row does this brilliantly with your custom CAP actually performing in the cut scenes with whatever look it currently has equipped .

For what ever reason G_gglypuff completely forgot Ninja Gaiden Black is an Xbox game even though I told him it is and even told him I have it. >_<

I think you're lame and should have a topic limit placed on your account.

It's fitting that the poll results look like you're being flipped the bird, TC.

I think it would have sold more if it had better marketing. You'd be surprised how many gamers don't even know the game exists. Same with the other games you've listed. A lot of people don't know anything about Mirror's Edge, little alone what race the protagonist is the game is.
