even better than otto

Newsweek's (actually legitimate, informed gaming columnist) N'Gai Croal has some words about the ongoing controversy regarding the alleged racist undertones in last year's Resident Evil 5 trailer, and while it's certainly interesting and definitely worth reading, there's only one point he made that I feel the need to address here:

It’s like when you engage that kind of imagery you have to be careful with it. It would be like saying you were going to do some sort of zombie movie that appeared to be set in Europe in the 1940’s with skinny, emaciated, Hasidic-looking people.
Does it make me a bad person if I kind of want to see that movie? The Holocaust is totally creepy.
