As you probably remember, I applauded BioWare for making Dragon Age 2 enjoyable by gay, bisexual or straight gamers. I also cheered them on for allowing same-sex romances in addition to opposite sex romances in Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Now that Mass Effect 3 has been released, I’m happy to see that it is for everyone, whether they’re straight or gay, male or female, and everything in between. Forbes just released an article on whether it was hard to be straight (aka not gay) in Mass Effect 3. They were pleased to report that it was easy to be straight, or gay, or bisexual, but more importantly, that you could be compassionate. The main point in the article is that the BioWare games allow you to treat people like people, no matter their color, race, gender or sexual orientation.

I’m an advocate for equal treatment of everyone, regardless of color, gender, sexual orientation, relationship status, or religion. I’m happy to see companies out there that embody my values, especially in recent times when I see women fighting for reproductive rights.
