Well.. living in Japan I can tell you that for them....its not stranger than being black or being a foreigner.

They see gay as one of those mysterious things foreigners do...since most Japanese gay men marry (a woman) anyway.

Nintendo is still a company (whose goal is to make money) and I'm sure more people would complain if it was included.

That's my point exactly. Some societies still think it's strange. Trying to shoehorn it to everybody isn't as fair as it is trying to please the homosexual community.

I must add I'm not saying it's strange. I'm saying although some societies think it's perfectly normal, they don't except same sex marriage as being normal, such as Japan.

I have no problem with gay marriage, and I think it should be legalized. I'm a little relieved they didn't add it, because I don't want hardcore bible-thumpers and political activists ruining a great thing in the name of furthering a political agenda. They've done it too many times already.

well if the body was made to reproduce with two sticks, call me and I'll change my opinion on the matter

I don't think those political activists deserve the satisfaction either, but simply omitting things like this is not how we combat people like that. Freedom of speech will reign with more open minded games being successful. Mass Effect 3 had homosexual relationships for male Shepard and the previous two had lesbian relationships. All three Mass Effect games were popular despite that.

The body and the mind are two different things, and that comment is neither here nor there, since there are countless married folks that don't even want children.

Take your ignorance back to the church and the ignorant parents that raised you.

Can't please everybody I guess.

Gardenia1863d ago

I don't want that sh*t in games

randomass1711863d ago

Why? A game all about relationships often makes it optional, in which case you can totally ignore it. Some people are interested in that, so it's okay to have it in there.

Waluigi thinks someone might be insecure about themselves... but it's ok! Waluigi is there for you! WAH HA HA!
