All the stuff I've read about how the industry came to be what it is, keeps going back to "white boys make games, other white boys play those games, and get inspired to make their own games, and the cycle continues".The fact that people don't get this is a bit weird. They clearly must believe that success/failure is purely an individual's choice and there is no such thing as classism or straight out nepotism in certain industries.
Aren't these studios full of people who are in fact gamers?
What program has there ever been that encouraged anyone white or Asian to make games? Like seriously?
