Video games like Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto 5 have made headlines in the last few years, thanks to record-breaking sales. Those sales exist because video games are hugely popular. About 185 million people in the United States play video games.

According to a study published in the journal “New Media and Society” in 2009, only 3% of all video games characters can be identified as Latino. And of that 3%, only 5% are characters you can use to play.

In this segment, Daisy Rosario speaks with three people who love video games but would like to see things change: Mary Lordes, a writer at Upright Citizens Brigade and former co-host of the video game podcast Unlimited Lives; David Brothers, a former journalist who works at Image Comics; and Vander Caballero, the creative director of Minority Media.
