    Go GW2!

    I personally don't have a problem with DOTA2 (or games like it). The only thing I don't like about it is the match length times... 30-45 min? No thanks.

    First example made me laugh. "You'll have more fun with gay Shepard!"

    It's not.
    Personally I have no problems with anyone's sexuality (if it feels good, do it imo), but retconning your main lore character to be gay and having you "educate the members of your crew who are prejudiced against homosexuality" sounds a bit too socio-political edutainment.

    Now if they had of just added a new crew member who was gay, and had a scene where someone made a nasty comment about the new guys sexuality and Shepard punched them out and called them a bigot, now that would be cool.

    Well, Shepard can sleep with just about any other person/thing in the previous games...

    Kind of a bigger deal to not have same-sex relationships and all the human social ramifications that go along with it than like care about previous sexual continuity.

    But back on topic

    GW2 is soooo going to overtake DOTA2.
    Doing 10 minute refreshes, GW2 gets 15 votes and DOTA2 gets 2.

    Yes I've noticed GW2 seems to be gaining ground rather quickly. Although after reading your examples on ME3 I'm looking forward to it far less than I was. I think sexuality in games like ME should be a sidestory at best, preferably an optional one. If it makes you uncomfortable thats fine dont follow that branch of the story. Plenty of games alow you to strike up a relationship of any sexual inclination or none at all and thats a perfect balance. But that quote indicates that its not going to be optional. If you decide not to go down the "Gay" path well their going to force it on you second hand and have a 3rd party go down it for you. I hate it when folks ruin a perfectly good media by trying to push their agenda on the unwilling.

    Uuugh I hope Casey stepped in and stopped it from going too far. I'm all for gay rights and all, but that doesn't my game has to be all about it and shove it down my throat. I completely understand they wanted to give some more options, as long as it stays a choice. Or just a small cutscene where Shepard can show that he doesn't care, like Mif said.
    Oh well, as long as my male Shepard can have Miranda and my female Shepard Garrus and Thane, I don't really care about anything else!

    Back on topic, seems Dota took a jump again.

    Where's Final Fantasy Versus XIII??

    It makes sense though. There is a huge part of entertainment industry across the globe that caters specifically to heterosexual women who like gay men. Why not try to tap it?

    People are not mature enough and any implementation of "gay" in games turns into an utter QQ/flame war everywhere regardless of intentions of the game. It is sad but true.

    Give it 2 more generations (of people) and this should be gone. Stupid old people!

    Do you realise you're in the GW2 section? and that you've just violated the following rule:
    Game Bashing
    It may seem strange, but many people like more than one game. If you want to compare to other games, you need to be constructive. Just bashing other games, including coming into this forum just to bash GW2, because you think it looks dumb, or not as cool as your game will gain you infractions.
    Perhaps you should use some manners next time...
