why do we need a black person? why is it that everything always has to be about skin color and race -_- i hope that im alive when people have finally evovled enough not to give to **bleep** about the color of someones skin, though i highly doubt that time will ever come. mind you, im hispanic and as far as i know there is no video game or super hero that is spanish but idc, because thats not important
Why are you up in arms about a simple topic? It's actually a valid point to bring up that the industry is severely lacking in the racial specturm when it comes to leads. And there are people out there that do like to have some relation to the character they are playing. I've talked to people who won't play a game because they're male and the main character is a female. I don't think it's odd to see some people to want to play as a Black/Latino character in the lead role for a change.
And DC's current Blue Beetle and Marvel's White Tiger are of Latino/Hispanic descent.
When the battle begins and it shows the characters, he does that drilling motion and announces, "Yeaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh Braaah! Come and get some, yo!"
I am surprised nobody has said Rico from Killzone. He makes the most sense for an African - American as he is a Sony character, He is a major character in the Killzone franchise and he appeared in the Michael commercial. Think about it? If any african - american character gets represented it will probably be Rico.
I agree with the Emmitt Graves sentiment. He has a great look and a solid potential move set with the build and battle system, my only concern is that he's not a very established character at this point.
Now, if somebody was so mad that there wasn't one and that SuperBot is racist and that the whole roster only has a bunch of crackers, well, that's how something racist would look.
By the way, just call me Count for short.
I really don't get why people are concerned with things like "we need more females" and "we need an afro-american". **bleep** this, the sex or race don't matter, as long as it is a good character. If the best characters are male and white then the roster will have only male and white characters.
I'm not being racist, I'm just saying what makes sense, and I personaly think Emmet Graves would be a great addtion, but not because he's afro-american, but because he's a good character with a nice potential moveset.
