The irony here is hard to measure. No one would blame you for wanting to play as a character you can relate to. Having empathy is realizing the vast majority of media—games, movies, etc.—are created to satisfy and monetize your desire for self-realization at the expense of many, many other groups.
Let me try to rephrase your comment for you.
"You realize a lot of people just don’t want to play as a male right? Growing up we’re basically shown most leads in action/fantasy films to be male but it’s natural that people want to play as a character like themselves. If there is a problem it goes far beyond videogames. I find it pretty insulting that I would be told I’m calling for censorship just because I want to play as the character I can relate to more."
On Sunday, at the Cards Against Humanity panel at PAX Prime, the hosts brought up a number of guests in order to pay tribute to our friend Ryan Davis. My buddy Eric Pope shared with the audience and the people watching the live stream the above audio, which I now share with you.
Ryan loved Comedy Bang Bang, and particularly loved the character Bob Ducca. I asked Seth Morris to make something as Bob Ducca that I could share with Ryan’s friends and coworkers. Seth didn’t know Ryan, and he didn’t have to do this. But he did, because Seth is awesome.
It’s a small thing, really. I was watching the live stream on Sunday, and got to hear people laugh. And that made me feel good. I’m glad a lot of people will hear this, because I think it’s really funny.
My god that was hilarious. My face hurts from laughing so hard. Big thumbs up to Seth Morris.
It pains me to know that Ryan won’t get a chance to hear this, so I’m sharing this so more people can enjoy it in his honor, it’s the next best thing.
We love you Seth.
