What a bullshit term. There's zero reason to try and force minorities into settings where they don't belong. The game is about old timey Poland, with monsters. As in, a realistic feeling period Poland, plus monsters, I don't see how this could be explained any clearer.
If I'm watching a movie about black people, I don't need a white character in it to feel "represented". A movie about Zulu warriors or some shit naturally wouldn't be about white people, and very well may not have any in it. I don't give a shit.
Where's all the bitching about the lack of white people in Sleeping Dogs, or the upcoming Yakuza game? Oh yeah, those games are set in China and Japan, so nobody gives a shit that there are no whites, blacks, Mexicans, or anything else. The whole concept of "inclusiveness" and representation in fiction for real world minorities is so stupid that it's more offensive than common racism.
How stupid are you implying these minorities are that they need someone in the story to look and sound like their racial background in order to enjoy it?
It's a dangerous and stupid attitude, since all these devs have a direct line to the people bitching at them through the internet now, and enough bitching WILL make shit happen, to the point where the ESRB starts giving games a Privilege rating or some dumb shit, or more realistically publishers just start tossing minorities into every fucking thing because they'll get shit reviews and fucktons of bitching if they don't.
