I got that game like 12 year's ago, with master blaster, Rambo was my favorite game growing up, hooked it up with the game genie and the shit was crazy.

night wolf- yeah he's supposed to be a native- but the character model for the game looks like a chinese dude with a wig and face paint on- kinda like the the down town thanksgiving parades in the cities

Master Blaster- that was some of my favorite shit to back in the day, jump out the G' ride in m.b. and wreck shit. But i'm old school I could flip Rambo without the game genie-

^^ha ha fuck that the wu ain't no cherokees- why do folks who aren't native claim to be part cherokee?

that's fucked up- I've heard it a million times in school when the teacher says
"ok kids we got a new student his name is Charging Soldier- he's a native american" and then a little white kid raises his had and says
"teacher i'm native american too, my great grandmother was a cherokee princess"

to the comment about "cherokees." well there was a lot of intermixing but more importantly i think people who had even distant relatives who were cherokee took a lot of pride in it and this is why the idea of blood quantum is tricky. another important point to keep in mind is that black/indians are called into question about their mixed race more than white/indians because of their predominant racialization. this is discussed in Native Americas from a couple years back. i don't really care unless an individual indulges in some hokey-ass shit then i'm like, well it was about whether or not he could prove it and he proved himself....weird, i guess, since i was taught they're not "right" or "wrong" wasn't that funny tho? they prove themselves.......weird.

Sunset Riders on Sega Genesis. The 2nd level you kill a whole bunch of them. They shoot arrows and have feathers in their hair and everything. It's basic, but a damn good game.

I don't think that's what he meant about Native Americans in video games but it's all good i guess :)

AHH

Now that I thin kabout it there was this old NES game called Werewolf where you played a Native American who could change into a werewolf, but it was cool cause instead of claws his two hands were just blades.

Can't believe I didn't think of that game as much as I used to play it growing up

nah mines gonna be different zones/ tribal war/ wild west shit is gonna be offical siege war massive scale warfare dont wanna give away too much ;psounds dope- don't try and base it off history in way that will offend folks-

instead base it off shit that happened but change the stories told-

for example-

if your gonna have the battle of little big horn- tell the story of the battle of little big horn but without it being the battle of little big horn-

I don't know your heritage- but you'll need to have a native american's perspective on certain aspects if you really want to make your game authentic- meaning there'll be ceratin things you learn in books about natives that have shit twisted and if you apply that twisted point of view to your game you'll offend peeps too.

I had a similar Idea about making a game like that too, but my Idea was more of an RPG, good luck- i'll give you some input too if you need it- peace
