When you look at these big open world games you walk around, find quests, get story cutscenes, relationships? C'mon now you got to get a life. I think developers look at this with a different perception.
Vikings killed homosexuals, but I guess modern day political correctness and propaganda always takes precedence over everything else now.
I don't think anyone really knows 100% the attitudes at the time, but the general consensus is that it was considered okay to kill someone who suggests that you were engaged in homosexual behavior. That makes me think that they probably weren't very accepting of it, lol.Woke crap can die in a fire but I don't believe scholarly consensus is that Vikings had any negative bias towards homosexuality.
Giving people the option doesn't hurt anyone, as far as it not being "accurate" I didn't realize we were playing a documentary. Someone better tell Ubisoft to stop letting people jump from 10 story buildings into a haystack, using a machine to track ancestor memories through DNA and oh yeah just about every other F'ng thing in Assassin's creed lol. If this offends you I'm sorry that's your problem, you don't have to do it and nobody is forcing you to do it it's an option. I'd be totally fine with them removing the romance options completely then nobody could bitch, it really adds nothing to the game unless you actually have a relationship with the character that carries on into the story.
