Debate: Something for the gaymers
What do you lot reckon?
I've been reading a lot lately about developers introducing LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) characters, though, from what I've read in reviews, these are normally quite weak and diluted. I've asked my mum, and she explained to me about TV in the 70's and 80's having the 'token black person' and 'token Asian person', but that the story lines they had were either really weak and pointless, or they were simply the shop keeper or the market seller that had a random snog with some desperate housewife, and after that, they were never seen or heard of again.
What I'm asking here is, do you think LGBT characters should be included in games, though, like all of their other counterparts be they White, Black, Warrior or Mage, have a proper underpinned story line instead of three lines of dialogue and then disappear?
