    Borderlands is a very racist game!!!

    The game Borderlands for the PS3 in my opinion is the most racist game around. Your character does not quit saying stuff like "N----r die' after he kills somebody. he also says stuff like 'suck my d'. The graphics and the user play is very good but I think that the developers could have left out the racist innuendo that is all throughout the game. It may be hilarious to some but there are others that don't like it. They try to put that kind of stuff in there subliminally but you know darn well that young kids can hear it as well.

    This white male sees no problem with it. Therefore this problem doesn't exist.

    not once have any of the classes said (excuse my language,) "nigger die" and if your smart you dont let your eight year old watch you play a game were bonerfarts are a monsters name. this is my problem with america today. if someone asks me what someone looks like and i say hes black, its racist. in america we have black history month, but i sure as hell know that africa doesnt have white history month. and if your worried that your 13 year old child is playing to violent games, you can bet your ass that he swears

    i know things look bleak,
    but even the word hopeless has hope in it.
    plus if you rearange the letters it says peeslosh.
    that last part was probably unnecessary

    Err - Borderlands is racist? I don't think so.

    I haven't played the first one, but I've played the second, and never heard any language like that. I do remember a bit of a 'controversy' about Tiny Tina's 'urban vernacular', but I felt it was a phony little tempest in a teapot, drummed up by attention seekers.

    No he or she does not. Are you sure that wasn't your racist kid? Or your own subconscious?

    Also "Suck my dick" is not racist. In regards to "subliminal" shenanigans, we all grew up with that stuff around us, cartoons, movies, books, media, the news--for better or for worse. It is still around us every day, get over yourself.

    What do you mean they say 'N***** die' I've finished that game 3 times and I've never heard the characters say that and that's with the subtitles turned on. Maybe you heard them say "I never die!" because they always say that. I don't understand what you're trying to pin point here. Wait, is this a troll post?

    I think you must've misheard TC. As others have pointed out, never once I've heard such a phrase being muttered by the main characters I play. The games aren't even set on Earth, how can you claim that it's racist?

    I dont think that ever since I was playing that game that I have ever heard any language like that being used in the game. I think that maybe you have been hearing things. I don't know what you may have been hearing but I have never heard anything like this in the game since I have been playing it.

    Borderlands isn't racist. Borderlands has an art design that was built to allow itself to have violence without realism. There are characters in the game who provide an antagonist path where they easily dismiss characters and kill without much feeling. However, its a piece of cartoonish fiction and lacks anything that's close to racism. Violent, sure. Hard to put down? Yea! Fun to play with friends! Absolutely! Racist? No.

    Even if it was said in the game, it's not like it's going to turn everyone racist or be extremely offensive. To be honest, if it were that bad then there would certainly be outrage by now. The word is said so many times in other media that this isn't going to have any effect on anyone honestly. Just keep the children away and it should be fine.

    Black people hate the N word, but love it at the same time. They only get mad when someone who's not black says it, but between them, they think it's something cool. You can hear it everywhere- in movies, in music, you name it. That means that if a kid who's into Rap music says it, they have no one to blame but themselves. They advertise it like it's a new pair of sneakers. I think they are the first ones who should give an example and stop using the word among themselves. It's just hypocritical.

    You Got a point. The "n" word also means something bad especially from slavery and how it made us feel. We have changed it to embrace on e another over the years. You gotta respect that.

    Rather than discuss things we are ignorant of, can we please ignore this thread and move onto discussing video games?

    Christ, borderlands 2 is certainly not a racist game. In playing it, I have heard nothing of the sort.

    People actually complained that Tiny Tina was racist because she was "speaking like a black person". I honestly found this claim to be more racist than the character, since it's basically implying that black people speak like that, and that they speak like that all the time.

    But there's nothing at all in either game or the DLCs that's like what OP here is describing, though!
