BioWare Writer Talks Gay Romances and Sexual Diversity in Gaming

"I remember hearing about when they made that decision to put it in and I was floored," Gaider told Video Game Sophistry. "I mean, I'm gay myself, so I felt it kind of odd when I heard about it, how shocked I was because I just never thought that part of my life had a role to play in work. Like I said, it just wasn't done. I didn't even really consider the idea, so when they made that decision it was like, 'Oh, really?'"

That's great but you don't need announcements for bland non-protagonists.

Okay article, but you're preaching to the choir, most people on N4G don't care about articles like this because they ALREADY support equality.

if i was Bioware i would fire Gaider instantly ....forcing flashing sexuality , gayality and all other similar -alities in a product like games where you make your own descisions and creating your own fantastical interaction with the world.. is a form of fascism ...

I never really understand this agree/disagree thing. What is there to agree or disagree in my comment?

Halo2ODST21270d ago

The disagree option means that you have called 343i out on their bullcrap, being negative about sony or ms, the agree option is for when the person is saying something that the majority of fanboys agree with, understand? disagree = negativity, agree = what the fanboys support.

Best games with gay characters are the GTA games.

Kane221270d ago

no its not.every gta game i ever played stereotyped the hell out of gay people.

antias1270d ago

Gay Tony is my nigga bruh.

Wait... so is his name pronounced 'Guy-dar' or 'gay-dar'?
Cause, you know... irony.

Regardless, Dorian Pavus was a great character... Anyone brave enough to sport such a ridiculous moustache is instantly worthy of my respect (except for Hitler... and Chaplin).

And Specialist Traynor from Mass Effect 3 had one Hell of a shower scene with Fem-Shep... I dunno if that's Gaider's work or not, but whoever animated that scene took their time.

I'm not sure where the Asari fit on the boy/girl/gay/straight scale and I don't much care... Blue is the warmest colour.

It is great that Bioware was willing to take risks with a high profile game like Mass Effect. More studios should offer choice when considering relationships in gaming, even if it is just an option at the beginning of a linear game.
