Wanna marry an avatar of the same gender?

critirichardcritirichard Hoston, TXPosts: 8Member

Have u ever played a game allowing characters of the same gender to marry? If u did, have u ever married a character of the same gender with u? If not yet, will u marry one avatar of the same gender with yours, and why? How do u think about games allowing avatars of the same gender to marry?

    1. I dunno

    2. No

    3. No, I have never had a desire to see any of my avatars 'married' to another avatar regardless of the avatars genders involved.

    4. I don't care whether they do or not.

    1. A bug years ago in Eudemons Online, other than that no.

    2. Yep, in the bug above.

    3. Naa I only ever marry my wifes characters in games XD

    4. Ive no problems with it, only ones I see having issues are those old people with the big signs as a gay rights parade goes by.

    No, getting married in an MMO is stupid.

    And "u" is not a word.  Learn English.

    1)  Yes, RIFT allows same-gender marriage
     
    2)  No, not yet
     
    3)  Sure, if I could ever get my partner to play, I'd do it as a romantic extension of our 20+ year relationship
     
    4)  I think it's great way to make more gamers feel inclusive, and: More power to a game developer that's not afraid to be supportive and progressive.  Way to go!

    1) Apparently RIFT. Maybe I should pay more attention to what goes on outside of raids. :P

    2) No, in-game marriages aren't my idea of 'fun'. That goes for straight, gay, or pansexual marriages.

    3) No, and my reason is the same as the reason I had for the second question.

    4) If they're going to have marriages at all, they should allow same-gender marriages.

    1. Yes the first ever MMORRPG marriage I went to was back in 1999 I think. It was not only same sex, but also interacial,  between an Erudite male and an Iksar Male. It was hilarious and the GM was cheeky!

    2.  I have never married anyone in an MMO. Though my self obsessed RP dwarf tried to marry himself.

     

    3. No real thoughts either way about this one (see above)

     

    4. Question should be "what" not :how". And I say more power to em. They already allow most everything else.

    I guess the answer is no.

    For some reason my wife is laughing hysterically because she was reading over my shoulder before I hit "reply"...

    I married my male human Jedi to my male twilek Smuggler just so I could give birth to a female sith Warrior...in SWTOR.

    I did that in honor of how stupid the legacy system was implimented.

    I've never played a game where I could marry an avatar.
    I probably wouldn't get married in a game.
    I think if you're going to have avatars get married, you should let avatars of any race, sex or species marry each other.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    Well, I've married a same gender character in the Fallout games, for roleplaying and just because. I have no real objections to it.

  • VolkonVolkon Sterling, VAPosts: 3,788Member

    I really can't seem to find anything resembling a desire to marry an avatar in any game. Real life women are so much more satisfying.

    Unless its this awesome, I could honestly care less

    The above is my personal opinion. Anyone displaying a view contrary to my opinion is obviously WRONG and should STHU. (neener neener)

    I haven't even wanted my character to marry or have any romantic relationship with someone of the opposite sex. If other people want to marry same or opposite sex then good for them, but in game romance is not for me, I have a wife in real life and that's more than enough relationship stuff for me without doing it all again in a game.

    Unless there's something to gain, I don't care either way. I don't RP.

    Thank you, all. I would like to try Tamer Saga out because it may be a game to tame various creatures just by its name and it seems as if it features tons of combinations of combat units.

    I don't RP in MMOs at all because, no matter what letters you stick in the name, they're just not built for serious RPing.  They are progression games, built to level, gear-whore and kill things.  You can do other things in it, but while doing those things, you are not engaging in the game that you are playing.  It's like saying you're roleplaying Monopoly.  No, you're continually stopping the game, engaging in a separate activity, then restarting the game.

    Now I'm not saying I won't RP, I've done it extensively in the past, in games that are specifically built for that.  In fact, the longest I ever played any online game was a social-only RP game that I played for 16 years straight.  In that time, my character(s) did get married multiple times, with marriages that lasted 5-7 RL years on average and usually ended only when one person or the other could no longer play the game.  I got to be extremely good friends with lots of people that I was RP married to, whether the player was male or female, friendships that I still enjoy to this day.

    I do agree with you though, there's nothing to gain in an MMO by being married and there's nothing to gain by RPing.  It's about as stupid as playing Halo so you can RP a relationship between Master Chief and Cortana.

    Many people think playing a video game as an adult is STUPID.  But I love your counter argument here real mature and maybe those many people are correct after all.

    Yet there are entire ratings for video games made specifically for adults.  The reality is, the median age for video-game players is 35, according to the ESA.  Go figure.

    Well, I didn't realize Rift had in game marriage (or any marriage at all for that matter) and while I'm all about more realistic virtual worlds it's not a mechanic I'm interested in, regardless of sexual orientation.  (They can be fun to watch however)

    I'd rather have a good guild housing system.

    Would actually be kind of glad that the game produced at least two people who still wanted to RP.

    Admiral Ackbar will answer the rest of those questions.
