Gaming While "Other"

The casts of our favorite video games are getting more diverse with every release, but there's still a lot of work to be done. While games like Overwatch, Assassin's Creed, and Skyrim are pushing the envelope, you're more likely to find the option to play an alien race than a slider bar that goes darker than light beige in many others. There's also still the problem of entire franchises using the Brown=Bad trope, leaving entire demographics of gamers feeling lost. How can we fix that?
