I understand why the Romani and Cree and similar peoples don't like having their civilization in a game like Civ 6, there's plenty of arguments against it. But, like with the Cree, I think recognition is important. Like Greywulf said, there's plenty that can be gained by their inclusion. I wish Firaxis was making a Romani civ, because they would do it as much justice as they could, including music, architecture, etc. that's very representative of their culture, like they did with the Cree. They would work with community leaders and get it right. And I absolutely disagree on your point that AAA games shouldn't be used to fight racism and social issues. Video games are part of our culture, they're not just entertainment. There are plenty of people who have never heard of civilizations, or leaders, or buildings, or music, that appear in Civ games. And there are so many people playing this game, and every AAA game, I feel the developers have at least somewhat of a moral obligation to said things right, to present them in as accurate and positive light as possible. If a Civ game came out, but was made from an Americanized view of the world, getting so many things wrong, people would hate it, and rightly so. I think the uproar about the Cree's inclusion is a good thing, but I also think their inclusion in the game is a good thing. Things aren't black and white, good and bad. The Civ series may be inaccurate in some places, or incomplete in their history and mechanics, but in the end, they expose a lot more people to history that they would never have learned about, in a way that is much more digestible than a 1000-page textbook.
