No, people should be free to live their own lives as they set fit. But I do have a problem with "normalizing" homosexuality. It confuses the children who play these games and is overall detrimental to society.
Reminds me of the Gay Musical episode of IT Crowd

Jen:
You're not comfortable with your sexuality?

Roy:
Oh, I'm very comfortable with my sexuality, I just don't want to be slapped in the face with their sexuality.

The game doesn't push it. The option is just not limited. If you have gay relations in the game it's because you chose to as the player.
I don't need any relations in the game, whether it's hetero or homo, it's a game not a real life. Having relations in general is just a perfect way to push LGBT. It's not that I'm against gay people, I'm against LGBT stuff in the games, because I don't see how that makes video games any better.

It’s fine if the story has a romance, straight or gay, but these games where you can act an optional romance... so cringe man.

Odyssey had this, see no issue with it.

Pretty sure religions before christianity had this everywhere

Pretty much. It's not like romance options anyway - it's kind of yeah let's have sex, little cutscene while the act happens then it's done.

Agree!

But I do have a problem with "normalizing" homosexuality.

Disagree!

It confuses the children who play these games and is overall detrimental to society.
[citation needed]

Would you say this about other mature or abnormal content in games that might also confuse children?
Is an issue also that children are playing M rated games?
Is that the developer own that, or the parents?
What if I, an adult male, want this content in my game?
Should other potentially confusing-for-children things be removed from games?

Honestly curious where you'd draw the lines.

Yet another reason to not buy Ubisoft's games.

Sorry, we (gay people) exist and have always existed. Not pushing a "gay agenda" by just existing and having the option in a fictional video game. Gay vikings existed.

I don’t care .. and this is disgusting just give us a game for fun

It's 2020, were anyone expecting anything different? Games are becoming something more than just games that supposed entertain, but push SJW and LGBT stuff.

More degeneracy from the woketards.

andddd I am not buying this. not because of that. everyone is free to do whatever they want. Its because they are trying to push an agenda down our throat. and they can fuck off i am not ok with that.

Video games are never and should be NEVER about who u fucking in the game.

Well that how it was back then for a Viking they would be out months and months on the open sea in their ships with no women around so what they gone to do they gone have each other somebody gone to have to give up that booty it as simple as that lol so this game is realistic



Not like it didn't happen in Roman times.

again. its not the idea of same sex. like I said I am not against it and don't care to be honest. Its the idea they are advertising it ( hey look our game can have the same sex fuck ! come buy our game ) mentality.

IF you want to add it then its cool but don't promote what is supposed to be normal.

why they don't say hey look in our game a guy can fuck a girl ? nope. they are pushing agenda here and for that alone, its 60$ less for them from me.

Interesting.

This opens up the door to playing the world's gayest Viking. If they give us the option to color our gear then by God, it has to be done.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla lets you have homosexual romances

"You can choose how to approach [romances] any way you see fit."

Just like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey before it, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will let you engage in homosexual romances.

Speaking with Stevivor, Narrative Director Darby McDevitt said that homosexual relationships will be possible.

“Yeah — there’s a lot of romances to have that can be found all over the map,” he said, “and you can choose how to approach them any way you see fit.”

While Odyssey came out strong with an approach that encouraged players to roleplay as a heterosexual, homosexual or asexual character, that narrative hit a bump when DLC forced your protagonist to marry and have a child. While Ubisoft apologised and corrected the mistake, one hopes that Valhalla will learn from Odyssey‘s mistakes and provide a playthrough with the need for a patch.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is planned for a holiday 2020 release on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Stadia where available.

Ok then? Didn't Oddissey already have it?

You guys should let the relationship goes normally(making it as if its not a big deal) instead of using it as the biggest marketing crap, like "Yeah we have homo relationships! Yah see, we don't hate yah! So please buy our game".

Seriously, this gonna backfires at you again and you know it.
