Let's come up with a list of games that handled LGBT characters much more maturely that Bioware has ever done.

Fallout New Vegas
Borderlands 2
Rogue Legacy
Divinity Dragon Commander

Not only did these developers not resort to using one-dimensional stereotypes, they also don't go around paying themselves on the back about it.


Who was gay in BL 2? I don't remember anyone and I beat the vanilla game. Are they in a DLC?


I'm halfway through it, pretty sure Roland is in the closet. Clap Trap is reminds me of this gay raver kid I use to know also, BL is pretty gay. Not sure about Jack but he does like ponies.


Ok i'll stop now.

Roland and Lillith have a thing, robots are asexual and Jack I do believe had a wife, he has a daughter.

I know gay people can and do have kids (one of my friends has a gay dad for example) but nothing implies Jack is gay.
There's an old sayin' down on the bayou that goes- BLEAH!

All remember is Moxxi saying that she made out with Lilith once.

It's due more to the fact that instead of making a really well written gay character, we have a clown with a Freddy Mercury mustache and eye liner who comes from an oppressed background. Edgy, progressive PANDERING.

How do you know the character isn't written well?

The particulars seemed a bit on-the-nose to me, too, but subtlety and subtext aren't really par for the course.

He will not be written well.

I wish Obsidian would get even more love than they do now, I think they do a better job than Bioware, as long as they fix their bugs.

I don't support devs that ignore QA testing in their games.

Concept and execution are two different things.

Clearly you don't remember Mass Effect 3 or Dragon Age 2?

I never played Mass Effect because I'm really not into sci-fi. The people who pitched fits over it should probably find a different genre of games to claim to be fans of while missing the point entirely, though.

Many characters in Dragon Age 2 were written substantially better than a brief teaser would lead one to believe, so I would consider it an example supporting my point.
