The age inappropriateness of Resident Evil is clear: However, I feel the need to establish that Resident Evil is not, in any way, racist, and the very fact that people think it is is itself tinged with a slight hint of racism. In this game, primarily black zombies are killed because you are in a place which is primarily inhabited by black people when a new infection broke out. If there were less black zombies, then it would be implying some sort of racist preference for white people being zombies. If anything, Capcom had something worthwhile to say regarding racism, and it is to address how horrible it is that the big bad in the game exploited locals in Africa, basically, because they could get away with it thanks to matters of social injustice. Characters are White because they are dealing with a pre-established cast of characters, and Capcom obviously bent over backwards to include more strong black characters when it realized that people were irrationally offended. Which is fine really, no harm done, and I appreciated those characters assistance. The most disturbing thing, however, is how Resident Evil 4 would, if anything, be more racist towards Spanish speaking peoples, but no one batted an eye.
In summary, keep this game away from your kids because it has shooting people to make there heads explode, disturbing, bloody monsters, gore, violence, atrocities and death, not because it has even the slightest hint of racism.
