Tackling diversity, The Division, Doom, and gaming news

Tackling diversity, The Division, Doom, and gaming news

Updates, trailers and dubious claims, oh my!

Today's Episode:

Diversity. It's all the talk in every group in America. The conversation is usually about the lack of it. Gaming is not impervious to these one-sided arguments. Rarely researched, people throw out diversity for the sake of news. The way most people talk about it is, on a superficial level. There's a mental checklist of what diversity should include. The main points are race, sex, and sexual orientation. A diversity of thought is always left out. We are not concerned with different opinions. Different opinions are bad. Unfortunately, some developers are riding this train too. Talking about a”lack of diversity,” it always revolves around race, sex, and sexual orientation. Writers should be more concerned about the depth of their characters.
