The 15 Most Stereotypical Characters In Video Games

Augustus Cole (Gears of War series)

Stereotype: Jive Talkin' Black Man

Everyone loves the "Cole Train", that is a fact. That is what makes this caricature so painful. While his character is charismatic, invigorating and exciting, he is the token black who is loud, big and full of cursing even when talking to the alien, subterranean enemy. Played with great zeal by actor Lester Speight (“Terry Tate: Office Linebacker,”) Cole makes us laugh and he makes us cheer but of course, he couldn’t be black and not be a former athlete. For that and his other stereotypical actions, he also makes us cringe.
