Indulge in it's whiffy sensation

But they have also been heavily criticized for "shoehorning" gay relationships into all of their games. Dragon Age 2 was the most the game with the most complaints like theses.Casual Shinji said:Bioware gets criticized mainly for making the relationships revolve around sex, not the inclusion of non-hetero relations.
Except what relation does that have to them including homosexual couples and other LGBTQ+ relationships. Which I also just pointed out that they have slowly started to do anyway. Even so compared to the rest of the gaming world the only companies that come to mind that even remotely did anything close to this is Bioware, the devs of Saint Row, and Nintendo.them from observing what the rest of the world is up to.
They said they were having a bit of difficulty with it. They didn't said they had a lot of issues. And considering how fucking amazing their HD games look I would say for a bunch of noobs they did a pretty good job. However this is starting to veer way off topic. I'm talking about Nintendo in regards to social issues like LGBTQ+ representation.They also had a lot of issues making HD games for example, when Sony and Microsoft had been making them for 7 years by that point - A fact you'd think they would've gathered some resources on with an HD console on the horizon.
No it's not. Like I just said in the last post, this game came out before even Animal Crossing: New Leaf and games after that have slowly and surely started implementing a lot more of these kinds of things. Complaining about this game not having gay romances now is futile. The game has been release for over a year now, and they just decided to give us a translation port. In Japan the complaints regarding this issue have already been addressed and in future games they have done a lot more of this stuff. Hence the example of Animal Crossing and Pokemon X and Y where an NPC states that he was once a Black Belt master but had post Op surgery to become a woman.Unfortunately, this time they choose to ignore a topic that is very, very big and is a touchy subject for a lot of people.
Honestly, Japan in general has been a lot better in all of these fields than the US of A. They add a lot more women representation in games. They have quite a few games were everything revolves around gay relation ships (yes dating sims do count.) They aren't afraid to make these women prominent main characters in the game and the box art, and so far they have including more ethnically diverse characters as a whole than the Western market where people either demand they have a reason to be there, or bring up the good ol demographic and business charts to justify things staying the way they are.But I think Japanese culture itself plays a large role in this situation too. We tend to forget it because they are such a big part of geek media, but they're a very traditional and closed off society.
So for a shut in society they ironically enough are doing a hell of a lot better in the representation category than the country that's supposedly a "mixing pot"
