Video game leader to anti-LGBT critics: Get a new hobby!

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2012-04-05 At 10.00.14 AmAs a lifelong gamer, it thrills me to see one of the industry's giants, EA Games, standing up to anti-LGBT pressure:

"Every one of EA's games includes ESRB content descriptors so it's hard to believe anyone is surprised by the content. This isn't about protecting children, it's about political harassment," Jeff Brown, VP of corporate communications told us.

"EA has not been pressured by any groups to include LGBT characters in our games. However, we have met with LBGT groups and sponsored industry forums to discuss content and harassment of players in online forums. In short, we do put options for same-sex relationships in our games; we don't tolerate hate speech on our forums," Brown added.

Good news for those who like their Sims to reflect their realities. Bad news for those who have enough time on their hands to fear digital avatars.
