Aiight, I first noticed this in Dragon Age 2 where the darkest you could make your character was "Hulk Hogan". Now I'm finally playin New Vegas for the first time and the darkest you can make a 🤬 is Obama shade. WTF. I'm one of those race-conscious cats that strives to focus on the big picture and not petty stuff but this 🤬 really bothers me for some reason lol.

Dragon Quest 8 for the ps2 ... the next rpg i'll get is the remake of FF7 for the PS4 (the first game to be released when it drops) .. other than that i find them so boring now

    I'm pretty sure Dark Souls will still let you create a black character. You could make a Shaka Zulu level black man on Demons Souls.

    Thought i was the only person to notice tht 🤬 in Fallout.
    they dont let you make a brotha on that game. You can make the shade of the skin paper bag brown,but you can have black features.

    And smh @ a sports game not allowing you to create a dark skinned player. Remind me of the time my homie showed me NHL 05 didnt allow you to make anything outside of a white player. I could accept that,thats hockey, but baseball???
    c'mon mayne

    I have a black character and noticed that when I got new armor to wear, my character had white hands when some of the arm armor's are equipped. Apparently they didn't take the time to do a skin for non-whites buying equipment.
