Far Cry 4 has received plenty of attention since it was announced last week but it has not all been positive. The game's cover art has been construed as racist by some industry critics. The cover depicts (what seemed to be) a white man in a flashy pink suit sitting upon a stone statue throne. His right hand rests upon the head of a darker-skinned milita man on his knees holding a grenade in his hands. Critics claim that since the picture shows a white man displaying power over a darker-skinned man, it is racist. Alex Hutchinson, the creative director on Far Cry 4, responded on Twitter saying, " Just so it's clear for those jumping to conclusions: He's not white and that's not the player." So there you have it. It's not racist because the man in the picture isn't actually Caucasian. Right? Or is it racist to generalize individuals in a photograph based solely on their race? I guess that is up to gamers to decide for themselves. Keep it at Game Podunk for more news on Far Cry 4 and other upcoming games. Source: Gamespot
