I'm curious, what games do you lot know of with South Africans in them?

I know a lot of mercs in Far Cry 2 are and they talk Afrikaans which is funny.

And I know a lot of mercs in Uncharted 4 are South African as well and say stuff like bru, china and kak a lot lol. I think the Nadine chick is SAfrican too?

What other games are there?

Afrikaners starring as villains...

The Sum of All Fears

There are others, but the accents in all of them are anything from terrible to horrific.

A couple of years ago there was a game planned surrounding the events of the Boer War, but obviously from the English perspective. I wonder what happened to that, it was also in the 2000s somewhere IIRC.

Also, you can be a Zulu in Civ :thumbsup:

It's a horrible accent but I don't think it would stop me playing the game...

Afrikaans mercs in MGS 5. Also quite funny seeing black people with propper boer names and afrikaans accents.

Xcom Enemy Unknown has randomly generated soldiers from SA but everyone still has US accents and features missions in the country but it's reused maps.

BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION
Yup I had a very short little chat with the creator and he said you could see stuff like Ouma rusks and stuff in the game? I haven't played it yet. I should because I loved Stasis

Similarly if i remember correctly there was a mission set in Pretoria in a Rainbow Six I think but everyone sounded American or British

Chase: Hollywood Stunt Driver was made by a local company two decades ago.

I assume, Chase, the main character to be South African by default.
