Let's talk critically about the Hitman games and their problematic legacy

Yeah, regarding the Contracts, while the promoted ones seemed to be generally less caustic, I think digging into the crowd-sourced content there can reveal the kind of people that can be attracted to these games. Like, again, despite my arguments above, I can absolutely see why racists, misogynists and other such bigots would find an appeal in the kind of missions in HITMAN games, where you get to see caricatures of minorities that you are also given the choice to slaughter if you so desire. And that really creeps me out, and makes it even harder to ignore the garbage already in the series.
