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.

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.

It's Bioware my friend.

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.
