No, but all the SJWs want to skew a game's message to make it seem that they are.

When I have 15 minutes, I will give it a look.

 

My viewpoint as it stands is that gaming is hardly anti-gay at all. It is a business and appealing to the majority is how you make the most money. Hence why chartacters are typically straight, white males. Also, the devs are usually straight, white males.

 

It is business.

Are games anti-gay, and more to the point is it ok if they are?

Right in line with is it ok for sterling to be racist.

And very relevant to did Olin have a right to tweet his opinions and were his companies reaction within reason.

Add in capitalism and maximizing profits and it gets so dam difficult to reconcile individual freedom and expression with the increasing control being exerted by popular opinion.

Clockwork orange has a few things to say about all of this.

gw2 has not one but TWO lesbian couples in it.

My hours live in double time
A headache lives between my eyes
I hold it hostage to a fault
Blame it when I lose my sight
It makes me so frustrated on the daily
Bear with me as I lose my cool
I swear it's only momentary

But are the games anti-gay for the creators not making diversity? I do not think so. If it is art, then it is up to them to do as they wish. If it is a business, profit has no bias and goes where the money is. 

 

If they want to have this sort of diversity, it is up to the creators. If the publishers are that cautious to go away from straight white male, it is for money reasons.
