No bashing whatsoever just wondering.

A lot of video games don't have gays, heck a lot of Asian games have no black people WHATSOEVER. Even after about 10+ games... from the same industry.



Despite what anyone says, it is typically against parental culture to include this sort of thing for games in which are perceived to have good amounts of children playing (not percentage; before you say well most players are adults; doesn't matter a hugeeee amount of sales do still go to kids) . The main goal of a game is profit, and honestly right now I think that would hurt its sales.

I think when us and our children (meaning the children of today up to like the thirty year olds) start to be in control we will see more change in things like this.

But right now some people are crude and concrete about subjects like this. Pretty arrogant, but you can't necessarily blame a game because it is in fear of stepping up and possibly losing sales. Or maybe because they are all older and their parents raised them that it is wrong, and too late for them to change their attitudes.

Or we don't need any sort of romantic flair in a game for ten year olds, heterosexual or homosexual.

Sorry my other main focus is why it seems more towards pokemon then any other hand held game.

Because its a subject that is known to rustle jimmies and people use it as a quick 500 topic.

In reality gay people don't even think about gay people as often as the straight people of this board do.

Most of the time, it's just someone making a topic that they know can easily piss someone off.

It's just the current trend. In a few years it'll be something else that has to be included in this "non progressive" game.
If you believe in Jesus Christ and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

Simply because it's not as closed a topic of discussion as it was back then.
Obviously many joke topics have been made to abuse this fact.
