Uncover Discrimination
 

Games often offer us the chance to step into the shoes of powerful and fantastical characters. These power fantasies are exciting and exhilarating. There are many games that invite us to step into the shoes of the disempowered.

Games where you play the underprivileged or discriminated against, not only provide information about how these unjust imbalances exist in the world but (to some extent) what it feels like to be on the receiving end of discrimination.

The logo on this page is the PEGI Discrimination descriptor. It indicates that the "game contains depictions of ethnic, religious, nationalistic or other stereotypes likely to encourage hatred. This content is always restricted to a PEGI 18 rating (and likely to infringe national criminal laws)." You won't see this in any game because the game would also be breaking the law.

The games in this list address ethnic, religious and nationalistic themes, but in a way that shines a light on discrimination and injustice. In a small way, they can help us grow in our sensitivity and awareness of these issues.
 
This list includes 27 games from the last 27 years, with 415 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to challenge discrimination.
