New Videogame Features Gay Sex Scene
"Gaymers" who recently purchased the latest installment of the action role-playing videogame "Mass Effect" may be pleasantly surprised that they have the option of making the lead character gay.
In "Mass Effect 3" players can make Commander Shepard gay, straight or have no sexual preference at all, Forbes reported. But if a player does decide that Shepard should be "born this way," then they will encounter a steamy sex scene, which leaked on the Internet before the game’s release.
Shepard’s love interest is a blue-eye black man named Cortez who recently lost his husband in a war. You have the option to empathize with him, which may lead to sleeping with him -- the choice is all up to the player, Forbes notes.
The scene (which is slightly over a minute and a half) has caused a bit of controversy, which may be no surprise to some as the videogame world has a reputation of homophobia and rarely depicts gays in games. Although some videogame websites have applauded BioWare, the game’s developer, for including a gay storyline, some fans have expressed a negative response towards the scene.
The YouTube clip, which is posted on ComputerandVideogames.com’s channel, currently has over 107,000 views with 1,820 "likes" and "2,416" dislikes.
"More liberals trying to push there agendas on you while at the same time crying there eyes out when some one mentions the word god," one YouTube user commented.
