How do you feel about romanceable NPCs in a game, when you don’t romance them, romance one another?
On one hand, I like the idea that characters go on to have lives without you, and I’ve seen this in Bioware games, done to some extent.
On the other hand, I’m a little concerned, because for me, it would deal with bisexual/player-sexual characters.
Example being, if you normally homosexually romance a character, who, if you don’t romance them, would be in a heterosexual romance, would you be less attracted to this character? Or vice versa.
I’ve seen one person comment about this before, saying, as a straight male, he wasn’t attracted to Josephine from DAI, because she is bisexual.
As a person who likes both men and women, I couldn’t quite understand it, though I try to be sensitive.
Am I making too big a drama out of nothing, or is this a potential issue for game designers?
