Please, think of the lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders and quantumsexuals.

Okay I rescind my previous comment about Microsoft being conservative. They didn't have a problem with the gay scene in Mass Effect.

Nintendo needs to get with the times.

You do realize that Microsoft banned an XBL user because he expressed his sexual orientation on his profile as "gay", right? Sure, they revised their terms of service because of it, but not until the media found it out and ran coverage all over.

Because militant Gay activists are people with no creativity and no other ideas, they could never create a game or movie or write a book themselves so they try to force and bully other people to include LGBTIQ propaganda in their intellectual property.
There's no such thing as a "Gay" gamer, we're all just gamers. Given that pretty much all popular games now feature some sort of role playing or character customisation if the player is Gay their character is automatically also Gay because it's a reflection of themsleves.

* Answer this:

* How many Games actually allow people of the same sex to be together or marry ?

Seriously how many ? like .000001 % or something ?

* Why all the sudden is everyone bashing THIS game ?

People are taking advantage of a situation for THEIR OWN AGENDA's, and it's pathetic really.

Equality for everybody is good, but FORCING IT, is NOT =.

What if we said All Games should HAVE to ban same sex relationships.........People wouldn't like to hear that, but it's the same thing.

Just because you want something, doesn't mean your entitled to get your way.

You don't get to grant yourself authority just because you reason that you do.

Grow up you whinny babies.

I don't care for sex in video games TBH. If they banned sex they would be doing me a favor.

As a matter of fact, if they just went ahead and banned sex in video games altogether, we wouldn't be having this silly discussion.

LGBTQ....EFGHIJKLMNOP. Thats about my care level for this topic at this point.

JohnathanACE1532d ago

Yeah this site is really getting bombarded with gay articles lately. Please just shut up and don't by the game if you don't want to. Nobody is forcing you!

I Don't get the fuss about homosexuals. Who cares? If a game has it why would you not buy it because it has homosexuals?

malokevi1532d ago

I dont think anyone cares except the media and rednecks. Remember putting two boys in the little car in the game of Life? tee hee!

Why does this question need to be asked when the answer is so obvious?
