Ubisoft Misses The Point

“The possibility of experiencing a life of hardship because of one unchangeable aspect of yourself doesn’t actually exist in the game, even in a humorous way. Implementing a difficulty slider that not only changes your character’s skin color but also changes how the world reacts to you would have been a brilliant and unexpected way to teach empathy to players.”

- Polygon’s Jeremy Winslow on Ubisoft’s South Park: The Fracutured but Whole nearly making a poignant social commentary with their character creator. Instead, they made a crass shitty joke. At least it’s on brand for South Park.
