Why Games Matter - The Old Republic's Gay Planet is a Bad Thing

Ed Smith of IBTimes UK writes: "First it tells gay players that they need to go somewhere special to be who they want to be. It says "what you are is different, so we've made this different place for you." It's admirable that BioWare would consider gay users at all (most developers don't) but in the same way that it's remarkable, Makeb is also self-defeating. If you want to include gay players, then you need to INCLUDE gay players, not isolate them to an exclusive location, otherwise you end up setting precedent number two, by giving haters an easy target." (BioWare, Mass Effect, PC, PS3, Star Wars:The Old Republic, Xbox 360)
