OP  2/07/12 10:29:02 AM#1

There are many ways that our games employ the idea of exclusion, wrongly so in most cases. In today's Devil's Advocate, we take a look at what exclusion is and how we and the folks who make our games can work together to be more inclusive. Check it out!

Today, I'd like to discuss this culture of exclusion with some examples of how certain sectors of the MMO gaming world make some players feel like second-class citizens in a realm where people should be generally equal. I'd also like to show some examples of ways in which the reverse is happening and a culture of inclusion is trying to be put forward, as well as what you can do to change the culture that pervades the gaming landscape today.

Agree, the whole exclusiveness nature of online gaming is beginning to annoy me. It wasn't like this back in the old days and doesn't need to be like this now either.

maybe they are upfront about who they are because they dont want to be included under somewhat false pretenses, they say who they are and what they are about because they dont want to be included unless the person will accept them for who they really are. in which case they wouldnt care if they were excluded by that person or group. c{mod edit}

little known fact (apparently) about "minorities" of any type who are often discriminated against.

 

they have a good reason for making sure you know what they are right away.

they are sick of investing any amount of time and/or effort being nice and polite to people who will end up attacking and undermining them as soon as they inevitably find out about it at a later time.

better to weed those people out right off the bat.

i don't expect to like Darkfall, altho i may like it MORE than other MMOs. i know it is gonna have a very frustrating level of grind to it, even if its significantly less than most. waiting for a pure FAST action virtual world. dice rolling & character levels (even "skills") IN COMBAT should have never carried over from pencil & paper to a computer that can reasonably model 3D spaces and objects

its all about context.  

white people in a predominately white society are unlikely to have any reason to have a "white gathering" (white conference, white club, white parade, etc.).......unless it's a racist thing.   because their daily lives generally are ALREADY FILLED with white gatherings, just by going to work, going out to eat/shop/whatever.

And political correctness rears its ugly head yet again.

Just live and let live people. Is it that difficult?

I think you are looknig at it ass backwards.

Most people in a particular demographic don't want to be thought of as different. They hold events because history shows us that at best they weren't included and at worst were demonized.

You might "think" in the end it's an all night party but that "party" is really a statement saying "hey, stop making decisions that dont' take us into account as we are actually a part of the community and here we are".

I'm sure most people of different demographics would just rather have the equal rights and treatment and forgo the parades.

I think the problem is that the gaming culture is based around the competitive nature of games. We all want to win and often civility is the first casuality of such a contest. In a fight you grab the closest heavy object; in this case its hate speech disguised as smack talk.  I don't that is going to end anytime soon without a broader education of the masses.

Visit London, Birmingham or better yet Bradford or Leicester in England...a couple of weeks should do it, whilst watching the BBC.

Most gay people don't care if you don't care. We still try try to be honest about who we are. We live in the closet for quite a few years that once we're out, there's no way in hell we'd go back in. Its not up to you to like the honesty. We'll still be honest. And you shouldn't speak for other people. Most people who find out I'm gay don't think I'm "shoving it down their throat", they just understrand that I wont lie about who I am. And believe it or not, most gay people don't just run around informing others their gay right off the bat. And not all gays are flamboyant queens. I'm not flamboyant in the slightest. Most people think I'm striaght. But they still always find out. And when they ask me, thats when I refuse to lie and say I'm straight. And those that are flamboyant, there's nothing wrong with that, thats just who they are. The fact that you think what you just said is fact shows you have a very limited view of LGBT people. Do all black people like rap, fried chicken and water melon? No. Do all asians know kung-fu? No. Do all gay people wear just their skivvies and then adorn a shit ton of rainbows on top of that and then prance around town to show tune songs? No. You should inform yourself of a subject before you decide to comment on it, your own stupidity shows itself when you do that.

The more you hype an upcoming game in your mind, the more it will fail to meet your expectations.

2/08/12 9:50:36 AM#14

A culture of exlucision is bad, as is a culture of inclusion. They're both extremes, and they should not stricly mandate player behavior. Beng coerced into 'playing nice' with other players who simply aren't good at a certain aspect of the game, or otherwise dissagreeable in some manner, isn't always fun for other players. But at the same time, other players should not feel like they can go out of their way to single out and harass such players either. Those players should be given the opportunity to find their place in the game free from harassment.

A better approach is to focus on creating a sense of community in MMOs. It's something that has been lacking in recent years, and it helps to deter anti-social behavior and encourages assisting other players in need of it as well. But it by no means mandates inclusion of other gamers, rather it simply helps encourage more positive interaction between them. But a lot of this is built upon a foundation of general respect from between one player to another, and sadly respect for fellow gamers is something that has also been woefully absent over the past several years.

Well, it sure is a fine topic for potificating.  Wonder how it applys to gaming, except where we game there are often other people?

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Like I said, if you want to be gay than ok, thats your choice. But dont think Im a bad person for not agreeing with it, or being annoyed by certain people who are gay.

If we want to be gay? As in deciding one day "I'm bored with my life. I think from now on I will be gay. That will spice things up."?

Seriously?

Like I said, if you want to be gay than ok, thats your choice. But dont think Im a bad person for not agreeing with it, or being annoyed by certain people who are gay.

You are generalizing about a group of people, and that will always be wrong.  (in the sense that any generalization of a large entity is foolish)

saying EA is a bunch of liars, or that walmart employees are rude, or any groups is ____ is going to be wrong. 

You are trying to justify the generalization by saying that "most of them" are, or "Just the ones you've encountered", that doesn't change the premise, its just tyring to jutsify it.

Lets replace your last sentance words just for some fun.

Like I said, if you want to be a woman than ok, thats your choice. But dont think Im a bad person for not agreeing with it, or being annoyed by certain people who are women.

now see how silly you sound? 

(I personally love women, I'm just trying to prove the point that you can't single out any group of people, its wrong and silly)

We must be inclusive and fair and equal to all peoples of the world.

Separate but equal is wrong.

 

 

Edit:  I sincerely hope you've read my statement.  I just wanted to point out I feel women are the most marginalized minority when it comes to video games, and  I think its all sorts of messed up.  My best friend is constantly being looked down upon or spoken down to because she happens to be a woman.  That or worse the reverse, they think you are an airhead but ooo she has boobies!  Lets give her things!   Why can't we just judge ALL persons of the content of their charater.

I don't think Exilor understood what you were trying to say there. And I do agree with you on that point, yeah some like to create drama. My point was that you shouldn't judge all gays because a select few like to act like twats.

Once again, creating drama over nothing

If you start labelling everything as drama you will see drama everywhere.
