I am a lesbian, and Dragon Age is still a beacon to me, when it first came out, so did I, and a lot of people alienated me, and I didn’t have many friends, and there was only my xbox. Origins was magical, I could have a character that looked like me! and romance a woman! It was life line I desperately needed, for my sanity. Thank You so much!
But, my question, has being a gay man brought any insight or problems as a developer, especially with games that now include same sex romance? — anonymous fan question
I pondered just how I should answer this question, or whether I should at all. Talking about myself as a gay man, and how that relates to my work, isn’t something I tend to do. I think it raises the specter of “the gay thing” if I talk about it too much, as if it were the only thing with which I’m concerned.
It’s not, by any stretch, but it’s a valid question—and a question that keeps coming up. So I’ll address it as best I’m able. If this is a topic you’d rather not read about, I suggest moving on.
