Inspired by my recent blog post, I thought it would be interesting to ask fellow members of MyGaming how they feel about the topic of sexuality in games.
For example, let's say that at the crux of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Snake admitted that he was, in fact, interested in the bulkier of the two sexes. This explains why things never really hit off between him and Meryl... Etc...
In other words, how would you feel about controlling a gay or lesbian character? For the more stereotypical among us, I'm not saying this will mean that your character often engages in rampant love affairs and poppers throughout the game, it is merely an aspect of the character that might play some or other role in the game's plot. That said, his sexuality is obviously a part of him or her whether it plays a role in the story or not.
So: your feelings on controlling homosexual characters and the topic of sexuality in games in general? (and I guess I should say we should keep this nice, yes?)
