Oh, not my religion. Not being a college student. Not anything you would THINK I should be ashamed of.
I'm ashamed of being a gamer today.
Yesterday, Mass Effect 3 came out. And the nasty, brutish homophobia that still is in our society came out
(On the flip, more ranting.)
Ok, now I haven't played it, so I don't have an opinion on the game. But when I see "OH NOES! TEH GEY SECKS!!!!" on almost 300 user reviews, I start getting just a little embarrassed to say I'm a gamer.
Not only am I a gamer, I'm trying to become a designer. Seeing this backward and vicious attack on a game for optional material... wait... I saw this before... when the FIRST game in the series came out....
Yup that's right, it's our old buddies at Fox News. At least they've got everybody talking about teh gey again. Admittedly there are a few people talking about "The ending sucks" Which is interesting that people think that, considering they're posting that 2 hours after they bought a game which is supposed to be a 30-40 hour experience.
So, back to my original point. WHAT THE FUCK is up with 20-40 year old males? I thought we were over this crap! I thought we were not being assholes about other people and living and let living?
Oh right, now it's being FORCED on us. That's right, a gay sex option is apparently a forced choice. Seems to me that some people need to understand that the option exists for people OTHER THAN YOU if you don't like it.
Hell, even Forbes is commenting on this. As always, straight male gamers aren't complaining about the woman on woman romance scene... big surprise THERE.
Hell, maybe the game does suck. I'll buy that. Maybe EA and Bioware jumped the shark again. I'll also buy THAT. But tell me why it sucks from a critical, gaming, and generally helpful perspective.
Complain about teh geys... and I don't listen to you anymore.
