    255: Who's The Boss?

    I don't entirely agree here. I've said this before in the forums plenty of times, but I don't think most games need bosses. Almost all FPS's would turn out a better game if they just put you at increasingly disadvantageous positions against more and more enemies. Half the time bosses just feel...

    222: Too Gay for the U.S.A.

    God-damn, I haven't played that game in so long I can't recall his name... He lives & works at Tenpenny Tower, sells clothes & armour. Asian bloke, he might be called Antony, I think...

    222: Too Gay for the U.S.A.

    Why does the author even compare violence in video games to homosexuality in games? I mean, millions of people, including me love violence in videogames. It's fun getting a perfect headshot in Fallout 3 and seeing your enemies head fly off in a slow motion. But, what does homosexuality (or...

    222: Too Gay for the U.S.A.

    I never noticed the lack of gays in games. First time I saw Bridget in GG I thought "damn, she's hot" then I found out Bridget is a guy and I thought "I'd still tap that" I'm not exactly gay, but I would say I'm possibly bi, as such I think it is a little (ok a lot) stupid that we don't let...

    Don't say such things, you'll confuse and irritate the fantards. : p Seriously though, I've heard that line of thinking before, and it's quite fun to ponder. However, one fact is missing. Eggs developed by male Yoshis are not actual births. It's an egg, but no contents, no life. Think of...

    222: Too Gay for the U.S.A.

    Ultimately, I just ask one question. If you found out today that Gordon Freeman was actually a homosexual, would it matter? Gordon Freeman doesn't act stereotypically flaming, doesn't wear a pink halter under his HEV suit, or hang a yellow bandana out his back pocket to indicate to knowing...

    The truth is that the majority of kids still use the term "gay" as an insult and California, The captol of Homosexuality, voted for Prop 8.

    I think whats overlooked is that america in undeniably CHRISTIAN society wih the religion growing alot more strength in recent decades. With one of the most religious societies in the world 80% believing in god 60% in miracles and 50% going to church once a week, i simply dont find this...

    Also you missed a huge Example with Elk/Endrance from the .Hack games. Here we have a guy who is completely and utterly in love with ANYTHING that shows him the slightest bit of affection, originally it was a frigging computer program (don't ask it's a long story) taking the form of a...

    Technically Kanji isn't Gay. He's more Pansexual than anything since he seems to latch onto anything that can comfort him (after all he wanted just as much as eveyrone else to see Naoko in a swim suit) I actually think YOU missed the point of Kanji, that what you DO does not define who you...

    Does anyone remember how Fallout 3 was commended for its inclusion of homosexual NPCs in the wasteland, yet of the three gay men, one was a prissy fashion-queen & the other a moustached, hard-voiced rough character with a weaker, dominated lover, & that the two lesbians had hideous rotting skin?

    Too Gay for the U.S.A. Traditionally, Japanese developers haven't shied away from depicting gay and transgender characters in their games. But when these titles make their way overseas, it's a different story. Andrew Webster looks at how publishers have censored gay characters for North...
