Some people are gay in space. Get over it

Video game players can now identify their characters as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Which is wonderful, unless you're a sad homophobe. Sonic the Hedgehog never agonised over his sexual identity …

Ah, Mr Brooker. Without doubt one of the funniest writers and broadcasters working today. Even if I don't quite agree with his interpretation of the ME3 ending controversy, this article had me laughing my ass off.

He's always hysterical and his social commentary is second to none.
I've yet to play ME3 so not yet sure if I agree or not.

But he makes a compelling argument on why people should be so upset at the inclusion of LGBT gaming characters. As the old saying goes 'It's the squeeky wheel that wants the grease.' He might just be right.

"t must be awful, being a homophobe. Having to spend all that time obsessing about what gay people might be doing with their genitals. Seeing it in your mind, over and over again, in high-definition close-up. Bravely you masturbate, to make the pictures go away, but to no avail. "

Genius xD

Great article, if this guy usually writes stuff like this then I need to start following his write-ups. As pointed out above he doesn't actually seem to know that much about the ME3 ending situation (he even says Bioware have already released an additional ending which is wrong on two points) but that's not the focus of the article anyway.

He does a lot of TV and Newspaper articles. You might want to check out 'Charlie Brooker Gameswipe' on youtube.

For the purposes of gaming specifically I can second the Gameswipe recommendation - even if it was sadly just a one-off - but for the purposes of general entertainment Screenwipe, Newswipe, 10 O'Clock Live and his Monday column in the Guardian are well worth a look. He's consistently hilarious, and usually spot-on to boot.

Bring back Screenwipe!!

But seriously, nail-on-head about everything except the ME3 fiasco (I suppose he just read EA's comments about it and took that as gospel).

The only problem I had with it was how in a couple cases it's kind of shoved in your face, which didn't feel like natural conversation at all to me. Just felt forced like they were including it just to include it.
