Its important to me because I'm bored of the same shit being put out. Diversity in gender, sexuality and race is as necessary as diversity in gameplay, equipment(read: guns) and graphical style. Or maybe I'm completely unaware of all the successfull wwii shooters still coming out today?
I'm playing less which is certain but the only thing I can assume is the cause of my disinterest is a lack of narrative focused games. I'm sure there are a few out there but I lately feel like most are shallow or not a focus of the game.
I've heard these things before and I believe a gender toggle will never fix all the problems with equality in games.
Those who have a problem with the female not being characterized properly because of male traits have a point. That point though is resources are not being made to change the role beyond voice and adding boobs but this is still a valid female characterization. The world is a diverse place where gender roles are not the rule.
FemShep is the tomboy I want to play and I'd rather they don't just slap on what is currently understood as female traits.
Gender isn't binary and gender/sex/sexual oreintation does not enforce any traits 100% of the time.
I'm a call centre employee with an overpriced comunication company.
Asking "may I have your name" getting the response "sure,(555) 555-5555" 50% of the time. Great, now I know your arent listening and whatever question you called in with will take five times as long to answer, FML.
