Video games still have a long way to go when it comes to diversity in games. In a perfect world, we’d have games that covers the experiences of every race, color, gender, and sexual orientation. We may even get to play as these people in their own lead story!
When developers reveal a cast of characters who will be showing up in a game as either playable or part of your party and they aren’t the “usual” sort of characters you typically see in games, it’s always exciting news to hear. Bioware’s recent unveiling of its first “fully gay” character in the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition is one instance of this. Even though there are steps being taken to have game experiences that try to be more inclusive, there will always be one or two individuals who will be resistant toward that move.
