Same here, I'm really excited for it. Pity it was delayed till November. Oh well, patience is a virtue.

Not everyone has fallen for "Christianity is normal" either. Win win.

So Christians are the only ones that dont want gays in their video games? Yeah... I am going to guess try again. Sure the religious go to extremes but even some of the unreligious don't want to see men getting affectionate with each other.

I will wait and see how the character (s) plays out before I judge. I am far from religious but I really don't want to see some really gay stuff in video games

@lawson No not everyone. But the guy I replied to is, according to his bible comment below.

If you had read the article, you would have known that it takes no stand on either side of the cultural war going on about LGBT issues, but rather focuses on the merits of Bioware's decision to allow players to have more complete control over your created character in their games, which is a good thing. More freedom, more enjoyment for every gamer. You're not forced to be gay, and I'm pretty sure Dorian's not going to come up and buttram you at somepoint during the game.

if you really read along the lines .
its not only the bible who disallowed such acts other holy books also did the same .
which makes me think they MUST have no religion at all to accept such an act JUST SAYIN

This is only good if you agree with the premise that it's not morally wrong to be gay. If it is a perversion on the level of pedophilia, then regardless of whether it gives you freedom of choice, it's kinda weird and wrong. Who would want to do that except perverted people? See, the issue isn't just about freedom of choice. It's much more fundamental.

In what way is homosexuality between consenting adults on the same level of perversion as pedophilia. If this was not the intent of your comment I apologize, but if it is, you may need to re-valuate your priorities.
Breakline  +   101d ago
Well, in the way that anything is morally wrong. Although I believe it is perverted, that wasn't the intent of my comment. This article makes out the issue to be about freedom of choice, but it's actually a lot deeper and more fundamental to your worldview.

It gets in to ethics, why things are wrong, if there are standards, etc.. The article cheapens the issue and skits around on the surface of the problem.
