And the overrepresented go, "ick!!" (to put it lightly)
Warnin' yall ahead of time: many of the commenters are pretty vehement about escapism (i.e. being "typical").
Anyway, so along with escapist magazine's "Industry of Inclusion" issue a couple months back, a video series attached to them, called Extra Credit which tries to explore videogames and the videogame industry, will have a series of seven minute episodes concerning diversity in the gaming industry as well. They intend to touch on gender, ethnicity, sexuality, religion and social class to name a few.
Figure I'd give the interested a heads up. A new video is put up something like every Thursday or Friday.
And as I warned earlier: you'll do yourself good by avoiding the comment sections.
