Dragon Age Inquisition Sees First Gay Party Member in a BioWare Game


It has been confirmed that Dragon Age Inquisition is going to be the first game by BioWare that's going to feature a gay male character in a party. The news was uncovered by Writer David Gaider (interesting name) who wrote that the new character Dorian is "the first fully gay character I've had the opportunity to write."

"Dorian's refusal to play along with that facade is seen as stubborn and pointless by his family, which has contributed to his status as a pariah. I suppose this aspect of Dorian [his sexuality] will make him controversial in some corners, but I was glad to include it. It made writing Dorian a very personal experience for me, and I'm hopeful that will make him seem like a fully realised character to fans in the end."

Later on, Gaider has been criticized for using the term "fully gay" and felt obliged to correct his statement to: "I was trying to be clear - many people consider the bi characters we've done to be gay."

Also, is this really the first gay character in a BioWare game? Turns out, it is. Even though you could establish homosexual relationships in games like Mass Effect, these characters were also considered bisexual, seeing as you have that option.

So, as I said, it's first full-on gay then.

You never go fully gay.
  Vader: For that matter you never go fully hetero either.

full on gay you say?
hot damn, now that's some good quality character depth right there...in more ways than one.

what about loot, is it more sparkly than a Twilight vampire ?

are the swords nice and pointy? are they long and hard so i can fully immerse myself in the politically correct freedom of choice that only Bioware can provide ?

You had Trayner and Cortez in Mass Effect 3, however they _technically_ weren't party members.
  finaleve: I forget Trayner is a lesbian, mostly because I play …

What David Gaider really wants to make are dating-sims.

All this RPG business is plainly getting in the way of his true passion. He should learn Japanese and go develop hentai games, that's clearly his calling in life.

I could have sworn that gayness is strong in this game. THE RESHAPING OF HUMAN BRAIN HAS TO BEGIN FROM CHILDHOOD.
while I write this I'm listening for a report in which it's said that XBOX ONE is penalizing you for swearing during sport games.
SO, BE A FAGG BUT SPEAK NICE. I think there's a relation there. ANYONE SPEAKING ABOUT GOING FULL GAY?

well, PLAYING INQUISITION ON XBOXONE MIGHT DO IT FOR YOU.
