With Uncharted: Lost Legacy coming out this week, I feel very sad most people are forgetting that the character, Nadine, is played by a white woman and that we are continuing to let stuff like this go by. The same thing happened with Clementine in Walking Dead, same thing with Aveline de Grandpre, and so on. People who love movies call out the white washing and issues of race in movies; Why can’t we do the same for video games?
And I will also call out sites that after initially reporting of the casting for Nadine in December 2015, during PSX, it was not seen as a big deal. No one thought it was bad. Some even said they were disappointed but were still excited. I like the Uncharted series for numerous reasons and Neil Druckmann reasonsing and excuses for doing this casting is inexcusable and will always be inexcusable for years to come. I played through 4 and hated the moment she went on screen. Also, she is such a waste of a character with no motivation other than “follow white treasure evil man that hired me to get pirate treasure and kill drake”. Shit needs to stop.
