i harbor doubts about DA3’s marketing because of Dragon Age.

where protagonist characters in the cinematic trailers and game material are always human, always cis/male, and always white.

we do get TONS of great art coming out online and in books that show the other player character possibilities. but when it comes to spending the money to promote the game…the ‘blank slate’ character that gets animated and slapped on all the boxes is an image we’re supposed to accept as default even though it no longer represents the majority of the people playing the game.

i’d kill for a PoC lady inquisitor in the first trailer.
