There's no "depends" answer because the point of the poll is just to see what impact having a homosexual protagonist would have on the games perceived value as a product. Thank you.

If the game is good, then it doesn't matter what the main character is or what sexual preferences he/she got.
And people had no problems playing as one in Fear Effect.

The substance of the game would matter.....

what would he be doing?

because if you make a shooter and just say "hey! he is homosexual"....some would care
but if the game is about homosexual lifestlye and gossip....a ton of people would care

its all about the game.....

I think the Poll and the article mean is a regular game just like you play everyday but the main character just so happens to like the same sex. Whether it be Action & Adventure, RPG, or Survival Horror.
