Clive Barker talks to GamePro about his new game Jericho, how video games are an emerging art form, and how we need more gay protagonists in gaming:
"One of the characters in Jericho is a lesbian. It's very hard in a first-person shooter to do things with the delicate issues of gender and to explore who she is when she puts the gun down. If you put the gun down some monster's going to eat you. One day I want to be part of a team that creates a game with a gay man or woman in the lead role where they are casually sexual, just as heterosexual characters are casually sexual in games, and have the public be perfectly comfortable with it. My belief is that audiences are perfectly comfortable with it already. I think it tends to be people in marketing departments that tend to be most frightened by those types of ideas."
