its fine that he is gay no issue here , but these characters in COD and Overwatch are just avatars really , i mean both games don't have a single player component. meaning they don't have any story , If your game don't have any story , i don't really have any connection to the character , if i don't have any connection to a character then why does it matter his or hers sexual preference ?

I wish the whole hero shooter trend would just die off. I don't give a shit about my shoot bang characters back story. I would rather just create my own character and if I want them to be straight, gay, etc then they can be just that. It won't matter to anyone else anyway because they will just be trying to kill me before I kill them.

The Overwatch style love for the hero characters still baffles me. Some people seem really invested in them outside of their role in the game. All I see are character classes and load outs that I would much rather apply to my own created design than be forced to use some pre-made avatar with a backstory I don't give a shit about.

this is silly, I don’t see the big deal on the character being gay it’s like a trend to make characters gay or something. Again not trying to offend anyone who is gay but I’m just saying.

Just give me back my Quake 3 shooters where I chose my character based on what I think looks the coolest. Enough of these pointless back stories. I believe one of the rarest trophies for BLOPS4 is to play all character missions. It juat proves people dont care in a multiplayer game what their character does in his spare time.

Are all the same people from the Soldier:76 Is Gay Thread outraged again?

Or is the timing being questioned again, like there’s some gaming wide conspiracy theory for gay fictional characters to take over your computerzzzz?

As I said before. No one posts anything when backstories are of straight people.

Blizzard,DICE and the rest of the SJW leftists
Yet it’s a bunch of right wing people getting outraged in these threads.

Ironic.


My favorite is people saying “they shouldn’t tell us what the heroes sexuality is” but no one says anything regarding the plethora of lore regarding straight characters in games.

I’m looking forward to another 300 posts of stealth gay bashing.

You don't have to be on the right to not agree with the left.

Is there a spreadsheet with the orientations of fps heroes? I want my illustrated fanfic to stay true to the lore. Also, which one has the largest feet?

I don't get it . Who gives a shit if he is gay or not ? Whats with the stupid push for open gay ? What a stupid movement and ugly agenda trying to be forced on everyone.

We either all turn super gay or we are homophobic.

Why straight guys and girls don't make a fucking thread about every straight character in every game ? But if someone is gay ? Oh ma God yesssss we have to tell the world how awesome our gay movement is !

It's reaching an ugly point that if devs don't have an open minded and a gay character in the game even though his/her sexual preference has no impact on the game, then those developers are homophobic..

Tracer is gay.... Solider is gay.... Let's turn some random character to a queer so we don't piss off those people . ROFL. What a sad thing to see. To seek justification and support from others, or they are so anti gay.

It's a momvent like this that makes me sick of these people and against them. Not being gay or not .
It's a fucking video game. As long as character is gay or not shouldn't mean shit unless it has something deep with the story.



Jesus enough .

Hmm, timing of this really does make me wonder if there was some corporate direction that said "Make a character in your franchise gay, stat." I didn't care about Soldier for OW, don't particularily care about whoever this is for CoD, but the timing and nature of the reveal being exactly the same is interesting.
