Games Research 5

This article explores the differentiation of race and gender representation in comparison to white male. The most important part of this article is the section on why representation matters. It discusses theories how people recall information based on what they see, and how media distorts the truth by continuously using the same kinds of people over and over again. This can also be linked to self esteem and inclusion issues for those not of the portrayed characters.
