How is it any of those things? By simply existing? This is all stuff people are applying to the trailer in their own headspace. It's a catch 22 because any situation where a gay character appears is going to be perceived as a "political statement", so the only way around it is to have no gay characters or extremely vague, hiding the fact gay characters where it's only said but never shown.
Dude, the scene of that boy trying to flirt and then the lesbian kiss was so cringey it was straight off from a SJW fantasy (exactly what Neil Druckmann is).

There has been plenty of gay characters in the history of videogames and nobody cared, because back then it wasn't an obvious political propaganda being shoved down people's throats like it is now.

I think the biased lenes you saw that trailer through definitely means we didn't see the same one, no.
Would you mind to elaborate?

Let me dissect my rather short statement: "I saw a drunk girl (who, I recall from Title Something proceedings, cannot control herself) who is in straight relationships with a guy, sexually assault (?) a girl, who she knew was homosexual, in front of... everyone, I guess. "

1) a girl was in a relationship with a guy
2) the girl was drunk
3) The girl new protagonist was homosexual
4) She found it appropriate to kiss her in front of others, including own boyfriend

Which of those 4 statements are factually wrong?

It's almost as if, much like with the case of JK Rowling, creators can't be trusted with their creation if you give them continued authority over it years after the fact. Particularly through the medium of Twitter.

At least this one was just a dumb prank in the end I suppose.

Gamers: "Developers should be able to make the games they want to make and not pander to those annoying brats on Twitter!"
Developers: "I'll make a game where a girl kisses another girl."
Gamers: "What is this bullshit propaganda in my games? Take this off! I don't want developers doing that to my games!"

Heather Mason > DOOM Guy > Duke Nukem > Solid Snake > Kratos

I mean, she's a teenage girl that killed a "god", if that doesn't make her the absolute badass, I don't know what does.
Depends who this "god" is. If a normal teenage girl could kill it then DOOM Guy could take a legion of these "gods" on with his bare hands.

"okay" stuff with pansexuality in ancient history is a myth
We have literature from "back then" times, describing it quite vividly.
We have Hippocrates talking about how grown up men's sperm "helps" boys mature.
Please.

Personally iv always thought Kratos as pretty fucking gay. Crash was always a better mascot.

A "god" that could have plunged the whole world into hellish darkness if it wasn't stopped.

Yeah, DOOM guy could do it, but my point is that's it's almost more impressive when someone weaker pulls of an impressive feat like that, compared to someone who you would expect.

Like the "I could beat you with one hand tied behind my back" thing.

But what if there's a very touching moment in the sequel where he kisses a man in front of his son? That would be an epic win and a HUGE step forward for LGBTQIA+ rights!
That wouldn't add anything to the game. ANYTHING. LGBTs screaming their rights everywhere is the most annoying shit.
And before you fool around, yes I'm conservative, yes I wouldn't like to see my son turn into a gay/bi, yes I do have a lot of LGBT friends and yes I love them all. Peace.

Well you clearly didn't read my first post. But okay. You quote sources from the time period so let me do my part here too.

Read Chapter Two from Adonis Georgiades book, "Homosexuality In Ancient Greece - The Myth Is Collapsing". You can easily find a pdf copy, just google it. Its very short.
And read "Homosexuality in Greece and Rome: A Sourcebook of Basic Documents", by Hubbard. Easily to find at amazon and its not expensive. It's very well made.

Do I need to read 2 books to figure how to "override" Hippocrates' words with "nah, that never happened"?
First of all, I never said that didn't happened. Second, I'm giving you context to learn more, not being sarcastic, like you are doing. And finally, read just the chapter two. If you can't read 24 pages them I guess there's nothing further to discuss.

I was not being sacrastic.
And I'm certainly not going to read 24 pages to figure "the context" in which Hippocrates meant that grown up males sperm is good for ass fucked boys.

Thanks Jaffe for solving me this non-issue. That's was the only thing which was keeping me from buying God of War.

Now I'd like you to disclosure something about Sweet Tooth. I couldn't enjoy playing Twisted Metal at the fullest just because it was never confirmed whether Sweet Tooth was a bi or not. I always kept thinking about that while I'm was playing with him. Those eyes of him never lied to me. Well, actually just one eye .... 'cause you know his mask shows only one.

Is he though?

screenshot shamelessly stolen from @JordanN because I'm too lazy to screenshot the tweet myself
Exactly what I though when I red the tweet.... And the reaction... And then his reaction to the reaction...

Which is probably what I would have done.

Which means not much. Greek polis were neutral to those who would have sex with a younger person of the same sex as mentor. They were very negative only when it was a stable relation with two citizens. Contrary to popular belief, many greeks were against sex with the same sex if citizens. Anyway, why should I care who kratos have sex or not? I would enjoy to learn more about the sequel to the 2018 game.
Usually this was lauded by the gentry. Lower classes would condemn homosexuality

Maybe I don’t need to know everybody in the worlds sexual preference including fictional people that don’t exist

Why is everyone TMI these days? Ffs get a grip

This is one of those types of situation that could easily be avoid.

If you ask me, Jaffe just wants attention.

Trying to make Kratos bi when he always rammed women in almost all of his games, is another example of trying to push LGBT stuff down on your throat...again. It's forced and it should not be this way.

Nope. He just wanted to piss off people upset at the PRIDE themed Kratos image. Its not an ink blot test. Its literally all that happened. I can't believe it's still misinterpreted on page 3 when people posted his tweets on page 1.

At least i'm not ashamed anymore to have Kratos appear in my dreams covered in sweat and rubbing my shoulders as he tells me how he butchered some fools by a beautiful lake

I read those tweets, and stand by my opinion. This could be avoided.

Also... there's something I would like to discuss... not related to the thread at all, I guess I would call this thread hijacking.

I don't understand the pride sentiment. Why are people proud of being something? Or of coming from somewhere?

I never understood this sentiment.

"Oh, I'm proud to be gay", "Oh, I'm proud to be white", etc. Why?

Shouldn't people be proud of accomplishments? Like... "I'm proud I was able to get a college degree and a good job and fix my previous shitty life" or whatever. This works for me. But being proud of just being something is a sentiment I will never understand.

This is a legitimate doubt.

When all you’ve accomplished in life is drawing breath and putting out, all you have to be proud about is the color of your skin and the kinds of people you rub your junk against.

Then when even that’s not fulfilling you anymore, you take a picture of a fictional character and photoshop some rainbow colored tights on him I guess.
