Open Letter to Feminists in Video Games from an Asian
by Ferdinand Joseph Fernandez on 12/08/12 01:22:00 am

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

Being a Filipino, I see that there's a lack of Filipino video games out there. But I've yet to see people complain about it. Instead, I've seen Filipinos eke out making Filipino games (Streetfood TycoonSIPA: Street Kick!). It's not much, and we're just starting. But what you can be sure of, is we don't expect anyone else to do it for us.

Heck, I even read that among Asians that are humiliated/maligned in the West (read: Middle East), there are those that instead devote their efforts on creating games that voice their opinions (Run for PeaceCrowds: Voices of Tahrir).

If you're disappointed about the lack of video games that cater to you, why don't you start making games yourselves that you will enjoy?

That's what we're doing.

Regards,

Asians everywhere

Hey bro, as an Actual Talking, Typing Human Baby and a member of Babies Against Feminist Mommies, I just wanted to let you know that I'm glad Asians Everywhere voted for such a sensible spokesperson. As a baby, I feel underserved by videogames. Very few of them are made to be playable by chewing or sucking on a controller, and there aren't many baby role models that I can look to in videogame characters. Because you're so good at linking to games by and for underserved communities, I was wondering if you could also share links to games made for or by other Talking, Typing Human Babies like myself.
