It sure is forced if I want to play the game.
Playing the game is your choice so it's not forced, it's a story driven game and that's party of the story, the character is gay and if she has a love interest that person is also going to be of the same gender. If you are that bothered by two people loving each other that's on you, nobody is asking for your endorsement.

These state of play shows need better video quality, the ghost of tsushima one was really low quality and so was this one, the higher quality videos come out after the presentation ends.

Again I am forced to suffer it if I want to play. They need to keep the agenda s*** out of video games.
It's impossible for her to love another woman in a romantic way but you won't understand why so I won't bother to explain unless we take it to a private chat.

I'm wondering how they are going to handle the PS5 version? It will obviously be better than the PS4 version in every way, and if that's the case, and the PS5 is launching this year, how do they market the PS4 version? If they show the PS5 version, won't a lot of people wait for that? Or do they wait next year to drop the remaster?

I'm also curious what the PS5 boost mode will do? Maybe with the newer 1st party games they are just going to be patched to allow the framerate to go up to 60 and have a higher resolution and call it a day.

Heisenberg on Neogaf said that he's been told that TLOU2, GoT and Cyberpunk will all have day 0 patches for PS5, he didn't go further into it. People there still seem to think he knows some things even after he was off by a little bit earlier on, he doesn't come off as someone who's attention seeking so we'll see. Also he didn't say those were the only games he was just replying to someone else's post talking about those three specifically.

I don't understand why that'd be impossible either. A playable character being homosexual is something one must "suffer"? Who gives a s*** unless you're vehemently homophobic. Is this what all the uproar was about? The protagonist of a game being a lesbian and everyone saying that that characteristic is pushing an agenda? Genuinely don't get it. I didn't look at any of the leak stuff and don't want any spoilers but if that's all there is to all the furor surrounding this game that is dumb AF...

It's impossible? Sorry not going to bother discussing that with you at all after this post you have nothing of value to offer on this subject if that's your opinion. I've loved people before it's not up to you to decide other people's feelings, if you think it is you need to have your doctor change your medication.

This is the only game that I'm aware of that has had a gay lead character and you say it's an agenda and you are being forced, I hope you'll be ok. This is a story driven game, she was a lesbian in the last game it's not something being forced it's just part of HER story, they aren't making Joel someone who identifies as a bi racial trans woman who uses "they" as a pronoun. She's a lesbian, gay people are part of society if YOU have a problem with it don't play it it's that simple. If you feel you are being "forced" when playing the game is optional to begin with that's just another reason for that doctor's appointment, your logic makes ZERO sense.

I watched it. The game play and animations look awesome. The game is much deeper this time with the crafting as well. And I think the story will be a really good one. I do think that the "Naughty Dog" engine is beginning to look stale though. Every Uncharted and Last of Us game looks the same with the cartoony color palette. Other than that, I don't see a thing to complain about.

I just have to stress about waiting for my PS4 to allow me to launch it for the next 2 weeks :)

I can't believe I am actually agreeing with JinCA for once (not about Val, I am talking about Lesbians and Gays and video games and life).

I mean I was getting it all along. Just have to beat FF7 remake before I commit to this. Game looks solid and idgaf about all the controversy. I loved the first game and if two fairly attractive women want to kiss who am I to stop it.
are you saying that Ellie coulda done better had the environment not limit her options...you think she’s more of a leg or butt kinda girl?

But yet here you are bothering again discussing this with protection instead of taking to private. You are allowed to express your views I'm not and you wonder why people have such a issue with these types of things.
Then you try and attack me by saying I need a doctor because you are wrong on something?Ohhh Somebody does need help though.

It's a agenda and being forced to participate in this act is very offensive.
