If you haven't heard, Dragon Age 2 is out and as our very own Super Swede discussed the game allows players unprecedented freedom to explore in-game sexuality; a sure sign of big gay progress. BioWare continues to be one of the few developers even trying to include sexuality in their games that extends beyond mere fanboy titillation.
Except for Mass Effect, yes I'm still bitter. Relationship building, decision making, consequence dealing-with, and notions of orientation beyond simply straight and gay are all hallmarks of their work. But some very vocal people are a little put off by such freedom. Cruise by BioWare's forums sometime and see for yourself.
Thank your deity or lack of one for Adam Sessler, who weighs in on the issue and keeps it real.
While the editor-in-chief of video game content for G4 and co-host of X-Play may not be gushing over the BioWare release, he is gushing over the complete sense of freedom the game provides. Freedom which extends into the realm of sexuality.
Sometimes you think something is so obvious that stating it would be redundant, but in this case reminding gamers everywhere that playing a gay character doesn't make you gay or report you as such is much appreciated. Thanks Mr. Sessler for your redundancy and, as always, your pointedly accurate views on the gaming world.
And for posing naked that one time.
Us gaymers appreciate all of it.
