Contrary to the general belief, considering how AGS did almost everything opposite to what the fanbase wanted, I hope they will yet again not listen and actually do implement some LGBTQ+ shenanigans into the game! Just for the sake of seeing another middle finger from AGS haha!!
If you want representative. It isn’t in games or virtual reality that you will get. The games are get wrecked because this stuff. If you want something go and do something about show your opinion and not be like some LGBT.
I have many friends in LGBT Commu and LGBT are homophobic againt themselves
It isn’t in games that you will get representative.
It’s vital to note that representation in media matters, and it is not hypocritical to want to see oneself and one’s experiences reflected in the media one consumes. There are still many games that do not include LGBTQ representation, and just because some games do, it does not mean that it’s not important to continue fighting for representation in other games. It is not “forced diversity” to want to see representation of marginalized communities in media, it’s called representation and inclusivity. It is also not appropriate to use language that is demeaning and dismissive towards those who advocate for representation.
Your argument is invalid. It is not about having experience fighting giant monsters or wielding huge swords, it is about representation and inclusivity. The idea that one must go to school to learn how to create their own games or stories in order to see representation is not only impractical but also dismissive of the valid concerns that marginalized communities have about representation in media. Furthermore, suggesting that advocating for representation is “shoehorning” identity politics and the reason for pushback against the LGBTQ community is not only untrue, but it also demonstrates a lack of understanding of the impact representation can have on marginalized communities. Inclusivity can be achieved in many ways, and it is not limited to creating entirely new content. It is important to be open-minded and considerate when it comes to representation in media including video games.
I am locking this thread because some of these comments are downright awful, and unfortunately people seem to be unable to discuss this topic without violating multiple rules.
Now is a great time to review the forum rules. Specifically, you can review the following.
