RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 12/07/14
RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Okay, seriously, what's up with that? I mean, lets take Mass Effect for example. You'd think you'd run into one Goldstein somewhere in the galaxy. But you don't.

The only time Jews are in any game is when they're being made fun of, like in GTA.

So basically....you want to kill more Jews?

I honestly hadn't noticed a lack of Jewish fellas in games. I've noticed game publishers have been a lot more Jewish lately though.

Didn't Blake brought up something like this in one of the old podcasts? It ended up them calling Mario a Jew.

I like them, they have a sense of humor. Blacks and other minorities sometimes do not.
I hadn't really noticed it either, but if someone made a pro-Nazi FPS... I think it would sell pretty well, sadly.

There probably isn't more of a push for it because I don't know if they care as much as others that they aren't in as many games. Other minorities tend to make points about saying "why aren't their more black superheroes?" or "why can't minorities play other roles than villains"? Plus you can tell a character is Black/Hispanic, how can you make it obvious a character is Jewish without being grossly offensive.. (anyone?) - should a character make an announcement in the game that they are Jewish? That would be kinda awkward if it has no bearing on the story in the game.

I was mostly just bringing it up as a sort of food for thought thing. And it doesn't have to be anything major. Just have a side character who wears a yarmulke on Sundays. Or is it Saturday? Either way.

You wear one everyday, or only at temple.

I think that would be a neat customization thing to put on a character though

For some reason this thread has reminded me of the Hebrew Hammer.

No one really declares their faith in most games; for all we know Soap from Call of Duty could be a muslim or Hindi or whatever. Usually it's that little detail that is left out or doesn't really matter. Does Shepard in ME declare for jesus?

And those Jewish rebels in Medieval total war..shit, ass kickers.

If I'm not mistaken any game with a bank has Jews.

I also heard there's this new epic RPG coming out where Jew is a class, just like in real life! I can't remember what it's called.

It's been confirmed that Mario and Luigi are indeed Catholic while Wario and WaLuigi are Jewish.

Confirmed by me

There might be a Jew or two in the Fallout games somewhere. I know there were Mormons in New Vegas.
