Well, NES/SNES games were censored because Nintendo Of America was so uptight about content which Nintendo would deam inapporiate & they would force game companies to remove content. This is why the SNES version of Mortal Kombat had stuff removed but the Genesis version contains the stuff which the SNES version didn't have.
Stereotypes have been around in video games for a long time. In the GTA games, many the Mafia/Mob people are Italian. In terrorist games, almost all of the terrorists are Arabs. This is because people associated Italians with the Mob/Mafia & associated Arabs with terrorism.
