Very. I think sexual diversity is important in ANY medium. EVERY game should have this diversity.

Pretty Important. I think that having it is a sign of a declining society, but it won't stop me from buying a game.

Pretty important. I think it's good for a game to include it, but I don't think every game should have it.

I see a lot of topics about Bioware and EA and their stance on sexual orientation in video games and the controversy surrounding it....


But I don't think I've ever seen a poll that shows where everyone else stands on the issue.


What do you think? Do you even care? How much do you care?

The correct phrase is "I could not care less."

If you say "I could care less" that means that you are capable of caring less, which means you somewhat care, which is the opposite of what you're trying to say.

Dude! You totally missed one!

I mean I also mispelled "Straight" in the sentence "Straight up offended."

I play video games to assume the role of whatever character that I am playing, and to pretend that I am that character in order to entertain myself. This tricks me into believing that I am in another planet or universe with super powers like Commander Shepard in Mass Effect.

If the character is gay, then I don't mind. I do mind if the game goes out of its way to get into homosexual situations. It's not immature to not want to accept a gay character, but instead it's a choice not to want to roleplay that.

I don't see it as important, but if game devs create a game that has romantic options, I do believe that a homosexual relationship should be an option. It's only fair

Yeah, his next to last option basically says: it's not important, but it is important, but I'm not going to tell you how important because it's not important though it is important.

Typos are simply hitting an errant key by mistake.

Skipping an entire word which changes the meaning of your statement 180 degrees is something else entirely.

"Pretty important" isn't even a complete sentence! It should be "It is pretty important."
