What evidence is there that the increase in new kinds of criticism has in any way constrained or inhibited creativity in games? What an odd thing to bring up alongside broken games and aggressive DLC plans.I was thinking about Dragon Age: Inquisition, and the males choices for romance, that players have been criticizing. There isn't a character portraying the a more classic damsel.I don't know why you'd expect to find classic damsel characters in a game about men and women getting together to save the world, but to be fair, Mass Effect did have some that came much closer to filling that role than anyone in Dragon Age: Inquisition.I do have to question why so many of the characters are not available as romance possibilities, though. That even includes the lone black female character, which seems oddly limiting for a game that was planned with diversity in mind.As to what you said, Josephine can be romanced, and that character isn't exactly a warrior.
