Legions lore is subtle?
then why even assume LGBT inclusion would be worse?
the devs have stated they care about it and want to do it right. It will most probably just be like with David, just a mention in their lore.
Everyone will be accepted when everyone is equally represented.
Well,of course it's going to be more subtle and not something like "character x is gay.He always had sex and he's really gay and into dudes and makeup and fashion" :]
That’s not what oppression is. Hating a group for something they can’t control is discrimination and if there lives were ruined over it so be it.
That's a nice fantasy, but it isn't reality, because in order to reach that point you have to normalise, and things don't get normalised without being thrown around a lot til no-one cares any more.
Every single human being is different with different views whether you agree or not. This thread is too off topic. Nothing to do with the game and these topics almost always end up bad.
No one likes puritans.
The posts in themselves don't; only homophobic people who respond like this.
We don't need your ######### input but we still put up with it anyway.
It's not ######### if it's the truth, the LGBT community is so naggy about everything, if they can incorporate the character to have perks related to their lore, I don't give a ######### what they do, just don't force an LGBT character into the game
I personally don't have any issue or complain, to the contrary i would love it if the next survivor is a transgender and im a bit hyped for the next chapter if it turns to be like that. Most games don't dare to be that inclusive, they stop at gay or lesbian and with mistrust.
And why i would like it? well because it will not only contribute to inclusion but also translate the reality to the game that we love to play, because not everybody is straigh in the world ima right? So +10 to behaviour from me if they are going that way with the next chapter.
I don't mind a gay character. I don't find it necessary either, but some people like that and I guess it's ok. It's representation at the end of the day, if a Mexican character got inserted in the game and it was represented with fidelity to my culture, I would probably feel excited.
The addition of LGBT characters to the game doesn't change anything other than having more options at choosing your survivor/killer, why are you so salty? chilll out bro. Also behaviour its not forced into anything, they always supported LGBT community.
And the question isn't why they need to add it. The question is why not.. It really doesn't affect you in any way in your gameplay.
I don't read too much of the lore, so I'm not sure if there's been 'cisness/straightness confirmed' for any character...
If there has been, then it's literally the same thing to have mention of being lgbt for a new character. Let's say Claudette's lore mentioned her being on a walk with her bf or something when entity yoinked her or something. No one would bat an eye, right? Literally doesn't matter if she was on a walk with her gf instead. No one cares. You can just go "oh cool representation" and then go back to playing the game. As long as there's no "Ha HGAAAAA It's GAY TIME, HOES!" at every turn or token-lgbtness to be seen anywhere, I cannot fathom a sane reason for somebody to be upset.
If they havent ever specified anything for a character before, then yeah it's kinda distasteful to suddenly be like "and THIS one is gay", and I could see the absolute most minor annoyance to be 'fine'.
At the end of the day, it's a video game. Let the lgbt people who are stoked for this possibility to be stoked, and if you don't care, then it doesn't matter to you. People can really only get mad post-release if it's done distastefully.
I don't understand why they're so upset about this. Lore doesn't affect gameplay, so what's the deal? LGBT representation makes LGBT people feel more safe, so isn't that a good thing? Like c'mon it's not that deep, I know the community has done dumb stuff these days but man this is just beyond ridiculous, and I'm glad we're getting a chat filter because man.
Look, I'm not defending BHVR's actions with the balancing and stuff but come on, it's really unnecessary. Y'all should know better.
"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."
Haha, I love that.
I'm holding out for a non-binary character, maybe one day a spanish one arrives too
That's not even the post topic and no one is asking bhvr heavily to do anything
Why are people debating about in game characters, that doesn't effect the real world we live in. Kinda sad. People need to stop being snowflakes. I heard a story today about Mr potato head having Mr removed from his name so it can be gender neutral, like really. And people wonder why there is so many people around the world with so much anger built up. The fact is hate will never be rid off, as the media is making sure of that.
You heard fake news. It was a change to the product (not the character) so that it became more customizable. Parents will no longer have to buy two virtually identical toys, they can just get the one and kids add whatever they want to it.
Ok if you say so. But something that's been making them millions for the last 70 years, why would they all of a sudden stop selling 2 identical dolls to only selling 1, knowing their profit will most like take a hit lol
Will it, though? That's the same logic Sony uses (used?) to deny their players crossplay on their platform. They think that if their platform is more restrictive, people will buy it so that they can all play together.
The way I see it, this will increase their profits because people will now buy one "main" doll, but at the same time they'll get a lot more accessories, since they can now be used regardless of whether you got Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head.
They just changed the brand name Mr Potatohead to Potatohead. There's still Mr and Mrs. They're probably going be releasing more lines if anything.
Thank god for that. I seen it on Sky news yesterday but didn't mention that.
That's because it's propaganda. Look up who started the network and then stop watching that crap.
Which part is about sex? Specifically, which part is referring to sex?
