Gay Marriage Is Good for Gaming

Numerous high-profile companies, including gaming heavyweights EA, Zynga, and Microsoft, filed a legal brief in July opposing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a federal law. In interviews this week, the companies' bigwigs said they have experienced little to no blowback for their actions. This raises an interesting question: Should game companies be taking stands on political issues at the corporate level and stepping unnecessarily into the legal world to advance them? (Culture, EA, Industry, Microsoft, Zynga)

Can't even be bothered reading into this. It isn't GOOD for gaming, but it isn't BAD either. Same with straight marriage in games. Just let people be how they want to be.

Can't say I understand why gaming companies are voicing their opinions on the matter, but I guess since everyone else is, why not?

What dream world do you live in? Since when has any creative medium in history not been influenced by the politics and beliefs of the day, as well as the views of their creators? It's in our books, our ads, our TV, our movies, music, art, poetry and yes...in our videogames. And good story telling is often rooted in reality to be relatable to the consumer. There's nothing wrong with that.

Why complicate the gaming realm with such a controversial issue? The only thing that matters is that we're gamers, not what our sexual orientation is or race, or even age.

Tired of petty journalists fishing for lame, talked-to-death topics for the hits. Keep demographics out of gaming. Period.

I don't understand how such a controversial issue has any place in gaming, nor how it has any relevance whatsoever to this.

Gamers are global, and thus we're diverse - age, race, sexual orientation, who gives a bloody flip? We're gamers, and we bond over one thing - games. We don't need any unnecessary ostracism in this particular industry over a completely irrelevant political topic, thank you very much.
