After spending a few weeks with Far Cry 5, I’ve come to the regretful conclusion that there are way too many black people in this game.

It’s not that I dislike black people, in fiction or in real life (full disclosure: I am black). It’s just that for a series that prides itself on realism, my experience of constantly bumping into assault rifle–toting black people in the forests of Montana just seems unrealistic.

According to the 2016 census, black people make up just over half a percent of the population of Montana. There are only about 6,000 black people in the entire state. Does Far Cry expect me to believe that all of them moved to Hope County?

The developers have tried to explain this by saying that the cult that appears as the main enemy in the game has gotten everyone — regardless of color — to join. But that doesn’t account for the fact that even non-cultists are disproportionately black.

Same. Who wants to bet he ain't got an article on non-black NPCs being overly represented in Assasins Creed Origins? (Another Ubisoft game) buddy2

holy shit this is absolutely hilarious

maybe its unrealistic, but why does it matter? the color of someones skin doesnt affect your experience playing far cry 5. you could have all of hope county populated by fucking wookies and the gameplay and plot would still be the same. so theres no reason to get ass angered because theres poc in a game even if its unrealistic. since when is far cry supposed to be realistic
