I’m curious if a game (or games) has represented the place you hail from, its people and your culture, and if they’ve done it well. Being Filipino, there’s not a whole lot of games that have depicted our area, people or culture, and when they have, more often than not it’s pretty inaccurate.
I remember there being a lot of buzz here when they had a mission set in Basilan (which is in the southern Philippines), although that game eventually turned out to be a trainwreck.
Their depiction of the region was also quite jarring, especially since you can hear locals talking to each other in Tagalog, when Tagalog is not a popular language in that area.
There have been a few others since. I recall Shadowrun Hong Kong mentioning Huks fighting against the Japanese government (Analogous to the real life guerilla group during the Second World War), and there was a nanny talking about home and her supposedly amazing lumpia, although these weren’t exactly major events or characters in the game. Tekken 7 also features its first Filipina fighter, although she’s a Filipina in name and design, not exactly by personality or backstory. Also, Josie Rizal is such an obvious and terrible name to go with.
Have games represented your region, culture and people? If they have, how did they do?
