    Or maybe we're not actually bothered by anyone's sexual orientation and are just having some fun.
    Dude, not cool.

    I'm against it on the basis that in ME1+2 shep shows no signs of being gay at all (I think the whole having relationships with women is a fairly big point against that).

    Who knows.... but this real life thing gotta be an option to turn it heterosexual only too, right? *facepalm*

    ...in the end I'm of the opinion that if a game involves something such as relationships in it's story line then the player should be able to play it out how they want if it be a homosexual one in whichever direction then it should be as possible as a heterosexual one. So i say, shame on other developers for not being as open minded and encompassing.

    Unless you were to have played through the first two games without getting into a relationship makes perfect sense then.

    Exactly. It'll take you about 120 hours to do though (assuming you skip most of the dialogue)!

    Rather than quoting those that don't understand and show their misconceptions as to what your implying, I felt it easier just to quote you and state what I interpret your intentions as: in memory of a horrible tragedy, showing how far we've come as a society. If we can have games that feature rather poignantly homosexual relationships (particularly those between to male-gendered people) then we've come quite a long ways from torturing and killing an adolescent who only lived according to who he was. Using his name and memory in such a way as this is a strong testament to where we should be going as a society, and is a sign that we are headed there as we speak.

    I applaud such an action, and condemn those unwilling to understand the reasoning behind your decision.

    Regardless of intention, it is still not in good taste.

    I would like to think that you're right but only VipersGratitude knows what he was initially up to: let's hope he meant what you think he meant.

    Why is it when it's a gay male character, some people seem to get their panties in a bunch? I've looked at forum posts across a few gaming websites on this story and some of the comments are very similar and depressing. "not for me", "can I turn it off?", "Political Correctness gone mad". I've even seen a few who said it's disgusting and they're not going to buy it.

    Wait, wtf? No one was bothering when it was female shep lesing off with someone (I know the asari are mono sexual or whatever but come on they look like hot women).

    If you don't want to play gay, then don't! It's not as if bioware are going to force your character down that route. They're simply giving what all gamers want (straight or gay), more choice.

    Cool.

    I still don't give a rats, as I am only interested in Tali. Especially as Williams is deader than a dead thing in my ME realm.

    There were alot of opportunities for gay relationships in DAO and DAO2.

    I always went for the fit women pixels and have no problem with it, I just was surprised at how many of the male characters wanted a gay relationship.

    It seems like in RPGs the standard sexual preference is bisexual. :)

    It's funny how many people actually wanted to get with Tali in the original (myself included).

    Why? She never showed her face, so she was obviously a munter. :lol:

    He might not have been gay in ME1 & 2, but I'm sure he can learn... :p

    Meh, Obsidian's done this before and done it better. Although Obsidian did it in RPGs...
