Racist ‘Dirty Chinese Restaurant’ Video Game Crosses The Line

Submitted by: lockner01 2 months ago in News & Politics Tech


A Canadian developer that goes by Big-O-Tree Games (say the name out loud a few times) is getting criticism for a supposed new game that’s called Dirty Chinese Restaurant. You play as Wong Fu, owner of a purposefully filthy “genuine” Chinese joint where apparently no racist stereotype gets left behind. Points are earned by Dumpster-diving for supplies, taking a meat cleaver to alley cats and stray dogs, and running the kitchen at “sweatshop” speed. Tax evasion is encouraged, and immigration officials constantly make Fu’s life difficult by deporting line cooks.

Sound offensive? The trailers are worse.

If you think its raciest then just make up the same type of game, use any race and I would still think its just a stupid game and play if I want. I personally am make up of 6 or 7 different western European and southern European (races) so take your best shot. I am also 6 or 7th generation American and have some Indian (the American kind) so you have a lot to shoot at. I like a good silly game and have a thick skin. I use to play some game with penguins serving food so I guess I'll have PETA after me soon.

Loads of free publicity when various groups start demanding it be destroyed and the creators jailed :-)
Just like Postal or JFK Simulator in bygone years... they seem so tame now, eh?

And yes it is offensive and just plain nasty, and think of the (pixilated) kitties and puppies!! (But it's a fact that 'dog' is just 'food' for many in China and Korea... white dogs in particular. It isn't racist to say it is true.)

5cats No but the pet stealing, sweatshop, tax dodging, illegal immigrant gambling are all racist stereotypes of Chinese in the west.


I don't care about offensive humour just saw Book of Mormon other night ( not as clever as it thibks it is) but if you think its the dog eating bit thats people are annoyed about might want to broaden your horizons.

jayme21 The whole 'eating pets' thing is something that really sets them apart from North Americans. Plenty of people dodge taxes and gamble :-)
