The Tomodachi Life "controversy"

#1higgsboson1997Posted 5/9/2014 8:10:53 AM
Miiquality, etc- I don't get it. Can someone explain to me why people are making such a big deal about it? Tomodachi Life doesn't have same-sex marriages. Sure. But the same can be said about Skyrim, Fire Emblem, Fable, etc. So, suddenly, why is it a big deal?

Nintendo themselves stated that they are taking feedback from fans and are looking at ways to do things better in the future.

So, once again, what's the big deal?

..the big deal is I can't marry a dude, and I don't want to play as a female
I'm just an ordinary dude who likes other dudes, and wants to be able to marry another dude

..is that too much to ask? =_=

Tone. Can't cut a minority out of your game and then go "yeah but we're trying to avoid all social commentary."

Also this is a life/relationship sim, which those others aren't. Also pretty sure at least one Fable had same-sex relationships, and Fire Emblem has LuciusxRaven and IkexSoren.

Go read the topics TC and form your own inquiry. We don't need another 100+ topic on a glitch.

They never said that they were trying to avoid controversy, just that, by excluding LGBT, they are not trying to show any views. Also, why did it become such a big deal in the first place?

It's a big deal because Tomodachi Life is supposed to be a wacky game where anything goes. And what's wackier than gay sex?
