BioWare: Mass Effect 3 to permit gay male romance - The Globe and Mail

It's not the fact that this video game offers the option of virtual gay sex that I find offensive... it's the fact that sex is an option at all! I guess I am out of date with current popular opinion on dealing with sex in such a public manner. These games have multiple player options, right? Is it at all hard to see that this might create a virtual 'crop of innocents' to fall prey to the seductions of other (probably older) predators who hide behind the mask of a game avatar? Given the recent hacking of the recent Sony Playstation network it would seem that this is not an insignificant risk that should be a concern to parents.


Just another example of the coarsening of our culture. It may be sad to witness but it's true nonetheless.

  1. Tim, did you miss the part where they specify that this game is specifically for gay gamers? Which does not mean, of course, that others are barred from playing, but the game itself was designed for gay players.
