In-case you haven't heard
Yeaahh, At no point in the twenty-some years I've been playing games, have I ever looked at an orc and thought "that reminds me of a black person". If you're the person that's seeing orcs and blacks as the same thing, maybe its you that has the problem, not the game.

The video title is click bait. The entire thing is about in-universe lore.
Title should of been "Examples of video games where evil races aren't evil in other forms of media concerning the IP and why we demand you praise it and replicate it in the AAA franchises you'll never make and only consume while you all bitch in the comments and boost our microfeedback algorithimic phalics"

If every other Goomba killed you in Super Mario Bros. that would be awful game design.

They should just recuse themselves from talking about games at all. Were they ever really worth listening to?

Actually, way back in the day... Yeah, they absolutely were. They had some amazing quality videos on working in the industry and they were one of the best videos to see on the Escapist. But damn, how far they have fallen.

I was assuming that Extra Credits was written by the same person over the years, but it seems that James Portnow, the person I was thinking of, left a long time ago.

Wait... Then who even is Extra Credits at this point? I thought the original creator Dan Floyd left a while back (and Alison the artist before even that), and if James isn't there then there isn't anybody who was around at the beginning of the show.

It has become the Ship of Theseus several times over according to Wikipedia. It's like the 4th or 5th generation of changed hands.
