Can you guys think of any well made character that isn't solely defined by their sexuality?


I can think of a few gay characters that aren't defined by their sexuality (Arcade Gannon for example). But none I would describe as great characters.

Sexuality should not be the main focus of a game. Hetero or Homo.


But what if Duke Nukem were gay?
Just wouldn't work.


Actually, that would be pretty awesome, given how much he overcompensates in DNF.

Whatever that guy from Enchanted Arms was (Makoto? It's been about 6 years since I've played it). He was hilarious.

Zevran from the Dragon Age games. He's bi, but that counts in my book.

Tony from GTA4:TBoGT.

That's probably about it for me on this subject...

Of course not, but it adds personality to characters and that helps create a good story.


Not when all 'gay' characters are mincing feminine jackasses, and all 'female' characters are either big breasted ladies with strong opinions, or big breasted ladies in need of a powerful man to save them.

Also, why are all male characters either musclebound patriots, or girlish looking manchildren with the weight of the world on their shoulders?

Huh?

NOTE: The word all was used subjectively in this post.

Poison (never actually gone into, but given most people can't get sexual preference and gender identity separated in their heads, and given that Capcom can't even settle on where she is on the transgender scale, at some point in time she has to have qualified)

Hell, I can hardly think of any gay characters that are horrible stereotypes.


Venom from GG, Ike from Fire Emblem. If we're including bisexual, then Juri from SF.

Real trick? Find a trans character who isn't ridiculous. Hell, find a trans character period. The only one who's ever not been handled terribly's from an erotic visual novel.
