Read the whole sentence…”Play however you want, but if you look down on others for not playing the same way”…it’s really, really clear what I’m talking about. Not putting the OP down for their own playstyle, but slightly annoyed that their confession sounds judgey, and assumes that other LGBT players will bash him for the way he wants to play. Unless he’s telling everyone to play the same way, I really doubt it.
And as for “be happy with what you got”…why is this important to you? I assume you’re not the OP, since you’re on anon and you’d have nothing to lose by just saying so. Why do I need to “settle” for one each, when there are two other characters close to the Inquisitor, Iron Bull and Josephine, and hopefully others, not necessarily LGBT, but whom I relate to as women, or people of color, or otherwise? Like, you seem to be telling me that it’s unreasonable to want more than two relatable characters in the whole game. Do you want everyone else to be white guys with brown hair and a little stubble voiced by Nolan North or Troy Baker? Because that would be dull.
Yeah, no, not really seeing your point. The confession was about wanting to play a male character to romance Dorian, but also playing a female character for Sera. I don’t create characters for romances, but I don’t look down on those who do, and I don’t assume that others will tear me down when I say anything about it online. Yeah, there are those who think I miss something by not playing dude characters, but so what? I know I have fun with the games I play, the way I play.
And I think you’re going to have to get over the idea that LGBT players should only ask for and/or expect only one or two relatable characters per game. Is it going to happen in games that aren’t made by Bioware any time soon? Maybe not. Will it eventually happen? Yeah, if video games ever want to tell stories that reflect real life, at least some will be made.
