ZOMG, that's racist!

Exposed: the most culturally insensitive video games of all time

ZOMG, That’s Racist!

Pretty much everything is accused of being racist these days. From Creole chocolate cookies to old reruns of Speedy Gonzalez — the cry of "ZOMG, That’s Racist!" is never far behind. Even our humble video game consoles have occasionally come under fire. Most gamers vehemently deny the charges of cultural intolerance directed at their video games. After all, it's just social watchdogs making a fuss about nothing... Right?

Doubtlessly, the Ku Klux Klan doesn't consider itself to be racist either. And minstrel shows were once considered good, clean fun. Fact is, some video games do contain offensive stereotypes, whether intentionally or otherwise. To prove it, we've gathered a lineup of the worst offenders, from Russian drunkards to brainwashed Sikhs.

Not every game on this list is dead-set racist, but they all contain images, scenes or characters that might cause offense to certain groups of people. We've subsequently given each game a 'Cultural Insensitivity' rating to separate the mildly offensive from the truly notorious.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
