New ‘South Park’ Video Game Has a Racial Twist for Players Who Want a Challenge

nyone who has ever played a video game knows that the character creation phase is basically the best part.

You can change everything about yourself, from your sex to the color of your hair to whether or not you have tattoos. In some games, you can even play as a giant panda. It can be an incredibly freeing experience to play as someone who is the complete opposite of your actual, true-life self.

The newest South Park video game allows you to make those same kinds of decisions, but once you get to the "Difficulty Settings" page, things get super real super quick. Suddenly, you're not just thinking about a video game. You're forced to think about one of the most pressing social issues in history. It's more than just a game.
