Enough with the straight characters!

From Point & Clickbait: I Hope There Aren’t Any Straight Characters in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Call me “the bad guy” if you must, but all I’m saying is that most people — quite rightly, I think — don’t want to watch a man having sex with a woman. I’m just putting it out there. I think that makes a lot of people uncomfortable. Not me obviously, but shouldn’t BioWare be thinking about this before it forces us to watch this sort of thing?

I feel like you click one wrong thing in a BioWare game, or say one wrong line of dialogue, and suddenly your character is getting hit on by a straight person, or having straight, heterosexual sex! It’s unwelcome and a little bit off-putting. Again, I’m not saying it’s wrong, I’m just saying that… well, I think straight people shouldn’t flaunt it like that in front of us.

Anyway, don’t BioWare have more important things to focus on, like, I don’t know, making an ending that doesn’t suck? Peace out.

    Lol. Being asexual no more straight people in games would suit me pretty well. Though in strict fairness here, one of Bioware’s previous games is the one that generated this comic – players actually did end up accidentally romancing various characters (incl. opposite sex ones) in several of their games:
