Laura Bailey, who has played Nadine Ross in both Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy, has been nominated for best actor at The Game Awards. Normally, I do not care for nominations for this show, but this is entirely different. I wrote in a previous post how white washing like this is harmful and how it can take away from other aspiring actors of colors to land roles. But now with her being nominated, and this being a show run in conjunction with all the publishers in the industry, it confirms to me that this is now acceptable. That this is okay. And it fucking sickens me to see this happen. Excuse my language, but there has been no wide scale discussions about white washing in video games for the entire decade I have been following games, and to see this as it is now makes depresssing sense. This reinforces the idea to other studio heads that they can get away with this now. Ubisoft has done this for a long time, with Far Cry 4, Assassins Creed Liberation, and recently with Origins. Walking Dead has Clementine played by a white woman. And it goes on and on from there. I am tired and I want people to call this harmful and toxic casting processes for what it is. Not acceptable.
