Finals in a month. Already feeling the pressure. It's heavy.

I'd say no to that question.
I don't see how likability(or being sympathetic) automatically makes a good character. That's something that helps but it's hardly what determines the quality of said character from a writing perspective, there are more fundamental aspects like motivations/backstory or others. Likewise the lack of likability is also not necessarily a flaw from a narrative/writing perspective, what if you want to portray someone whose nature is unlikable to begin with or someone with a certain personality that may not involve that trait..

An amusing opinion from one of my Twitter pals, and one I tend to agree with a bit:

Quote
I think people are missing a key issue in this whole Tomodachi Life thing. Who the hell wants to play with Miis anyway? They creep me out.

+1
I actually don't get the appeal of these "time wasters" as I would like to call it. Games with seemingly no purpose other than fuck around in. Like Animal Crossing.

Finished Ace Attorney 5.
An excellent addition to the series even if ever slighty disappointing.

These words will go down in the annals of history.. Such is the fate of great men. This is history in the making!

Breath of Fire 4
I reached a jungle area during a vacation to Spain and then when I returned home I wanted to finish it but I got hooked on World of Warcraft(I already was mind you, I would only play that game except on those yearly 2 week vacations where I would always play a ps1 JRPG).

I was turned off the series after, what I consider to be, the worst ending in gaming history in BoF3. The final boss fight took me at least an hour of careful strategy during my summer vacation, and all I get is...that?

I swore off BoF after that, but apparently Bof4 is good? urrgh, maybe I'll have to get it. Maybe it's time for me to end my BoF boycott after...15-16 years.

Was it because of it's brevity?

If there's anything in the universe that guarantees this WILL happen is the fact that I just bought an import copy of 3.

So this is Yoda... The stuff of legend.

Well when you put it that way.. I guess they don't need to feature it(in your everyday game, however there are things to take into consideration in relation to Tomodachi Life).. But they openly said they didn't include it for other reasons, reasons that are more problematic than a simple oversight.

It's also problematic because of the nature of the game itself, it's a game about life where relationships and friendships are a major feature and homosexuality is not that uncommon.

They are just being cowards, plain and simple.

So basically my point is:
Games don't need to fulfill a list of bullet points HOWEVER
- It's a relevant discussion in this particular game due to it's nature


Also if they did include it, I don't think they would have to advertise it or show that they are defending any kind of cause.. It would be just a natural thing in the game, no fuss about it.. There are no politics or agendas involved. Just a plain old simple option.

Actually, I'll reput that here... I think this is the edit I'll go with.

It's a struggle to write this...

---

I'm going to try and write that... but I'm debating while thinking to myself:

I feel that if something is aimed at kids, it should be careful with its influence. I understand what you mean Star that showing same sex relationship would create a better image/understanding as they get older... but another part of me thinks that the 'norm' should be the default state and as the individual gets older, it can choose to go 'outisde' the norm. The issue with what I just said of course is that it doesn't solve segregation.

I understand that the 'norm' is an offensive idea to a lot, but looking at humanity as a statistic, I can't help but see LGBT as a minority.
That doesn't mean they should be ignored, it just seems like a hard balance that I don't think everything should cater to them (since it's extra development and all)... but on the other hand how could you choose what would.

It's a hard feeling to express.

Our evolution as a society always starts with minorities.
The end of scientific opression, the end of slavery, the end of racism, the end of dictatorships.. etc, It all begins in the "minorities".
Only by exposing people to new ideas, can our society evolve to a more just and knowledgeable entity.
Hiding the "truth" just because it goes against the norm only promotes the stagnation and perpetuation of ignorance and ill defined dogmas.

Annubis.. What are you doing lol.
Imagine if we were back a few centuries where slavery/racism was the norm.. Are you implying that they should "teach"(by having it in the game as a thing) kids ignorance just because it's the norm?

FiNished Nier, one of the best games I've ever played.
Got all endings and did all sidequests.


Go read the Grimoire Nier now to really fall in love with it if you haven't already.

To really fall in love? I think Im way past that xD. Consider me a Nier acolyte, I was already planning on reading it, thanks for the link :)

I cried buckets of tears during
Code:
the 2nd playthrough, after doing the Facade part with the wolves after having seen the other portions aswell as a culmination of everything, absolutely brilliant making you play "the villain" or simply seeing things from the other side, talk about moral ambiguity done right. It's a masterpiece

I once had a dream where I won the lottery and then in my extravagant behaviour, I bought a couple of plane tickets to some location and sent to the RPGFan people.. I hadnt seen how anyone looked so I had to make that up in my dream, it was quite fun.
