- Some dingaling: Wow why can't the fandom be less focused on the romance aspect and more on the story? I'm really tired of everyone screaming about which aliens they're gonna fuck.
- Me, staring at a cute alien: Yeah man I really wish people would understand the complex and intricate narrative that BioWare probably has prepared for us and realize that there are more things to the characters than their sexual orientations.
- Me, slowly taking my clothes off: But I mean that's the thing, isn't it? You don't really know what BioWare has in store for us, and the romance is really the only story aspect that any of us are certain will be included. And while we could discuss the combat and gameplay, BioWare has made themselves famous for being story- and character-focused as a developer, so having a fanbase that's responding this way to new characters is a natural consequence.
- Me, climbing the cute alien like a tree: So while I understand your frustrations, I think it's unfair to reduce fan enthusiasm to being simply horny for aliens, when it's most likely a way of channelling excitement into the source with the biggest chance of having a positive outcome.
As someone who grew up during the PS2 era, hasn't the last 5~ months (and the next few months) feel a lot like a throw back to that time period, with fantastic niche titles every couple of weeks and for the most part they all do well? It's a great time to be a fan of weird oddity games.
