According to Ubisoft’s Alex Hutchinson, all games journalists are a bit racist.

When asked how Nintendo continue to resurrect the same franchises, Hutchinson provided the following blunt response:

“You want my real answer? I think there’s a subtle racism in the business, especially on the journalists’ side, where Japanese developers are forgiven for doing what they do. I think it’s condescending to do this.”

“Just think about how many Japanese games are released where their stories are literally gibberish. Literally gibberish. There’s no way you could write it with a straight face, and the journalists say ‘oh it is brilliant’.”

“Then Gears of War comes out and apparently it’s the worst written narrative in a game ever. I’ll take Gears of War over Bayonetta any time.”

Can anyone else see the irony in the fact that he’s slagging the Japanese off, yet calling us racists?

I’m sure Assassins Creed 3, a game in which you’re constantly killing British soldiers isn’t deemed racist either?

I’m not a fan of Gears of War and since I only played the first game for ten minutes before realising it wasn’t for me, I’m hardly qualified to comment on the story aspect. I did play Bayonetta though. I played it a lot. It was meant to bonkers. That’s the point of the whole game. She’s a fucking witch with magical fucking hair that can turn into a fucking panther for fuck’s sake!

I’m certainly no racist, but I am incredibly judgemental and Alex Hutchinson is a massive twat.
