The gamer community continues to throw tantrums at even the thought of 'alternative' gamer conventions - look up the various reactions to 'gaymer' conventions; a bunch of manchildren spitting dummies people people want to play games the way they want to in the company they choose to.

To be fair some from the gay gamer community were uneasy at the prospect of a gay focused convention (although it had always been said that heterosexuals were more than welcome) when, by rights, the main conventions (E3, Eurocom, etc.) should be adapting to represent their sexuality more.

To me the issue had more to do with the idea that if someone felt an affinity to a group of people, and wanted to enjoy his/ her favourite hobby in the company of those people, then a bunch of morons were out there telling them they couldn't because they should 'just enjoy E3', then the point of a gaymer convention is incredibly important; we need these things to tell the morons that no, they don't have the right to tell other people how to have fun.

People have every right to set up interest groups and conventions if they want to for their own group of people. They do not need the permission of the middle class white straight people to do that.

@Ralizah A. Implicating homosexuality in homophobes is always a bad way to argue.

B. When you're anonymous over the internet with a headset, being a jerk is apparently fun or somehow empowering.

Most geeky fandoms and subcultures suffer from a nasty undercurrent of misogyny and homophobia, but gamer culture is usually the worst in this regard.

The gaming community as a whole, I agree partially. Any mainstream audience of entertainment can be guilty of this, though.

Also, Bankai, about that email, I'll definitely get ahold of you about that offering in the coming weeks due to family and work setbacks. I don't have the willpower to do such a job at this particular time. But I do accept the offering. sorry about being off topic just trying to reassure you that I'm not ignoring the offer. lol

I'm glad this was posted. It shows the ignorance of people today.

This is, in no way, shoving anything down anyone's throat.

Yeah, I meant to imply RH's post was ignorant.

Also, my reason for questioning is due to past organizations using human rights (or in unfortunate cases, an unsupporting of) to gain publicity or sales. That extends beyond video games.

CSR (corporate social responsibility) programs are not marketing. They're not funded by the marketing department and the marketing heads don't, by default, have a role in CSR work.

Every ethical corporation takes its responsibilities to the community seriously and spends money on CSR work because of that, not because it makes them look good.

@Chrono - whenever you feel like you have some free time spare, dude. It's all good.

Free games aren't going anywhere ;-)

Your posts are no better.

As far as we know, this is a kind service of EA. But you could be right.

It should acceptable. We live in a world where acceptance is key to prevent tragedies. Something to learn from history.

If you're an immature adult/child, sure. Anyone that's responsible and informed would not harass or partake in such a situation anywhere at any time.

I'm so sorry everyone, but Bankai, what do you mean by free games exactly? I'm not sure if I follow. No more questions after this.

A. I don't argue with bigots. I do, however, like having some light fun with them.

Sales would point otherwise as this isn't the first times EA has done an event like this or has made position on the subject known.

Must suck to be a bigot though.

If I told you I didn't like you, and you made yourself sound dumber and dumber with each keystroke, you'd argue the crap out of me.

In a way, I'd do the same. Isn't it so easy to hate when you're not on the receiving end?

There is nothing wrong with being gay. Discrimination is what's not right.


This is great news and it has made me respect EA more. There need to be more accurate LGBT represntations in gaming (not saying there aren't any, just that there aren't enough) that don't stereotype and there should be more games that follow Mass Effect 3's example and allow for gay relationships. It seems that western developers are better at including this than Japanese developers. Does anyone know of any Japanese games that allow for same sex relationships (aside from obscure visual novels/dating sims) that include this? I know that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2 does but I haven't heard of any others.

Does anyone know what time the presentation is and how long it is?
