The thing is its like 5% of the worlds population.... and probably less than that, who buy these games.
If they "only" make like 2-3 protagonists, haveing them be "gay" just for representation, could be at the cost of those other 95% of the population, that maybe dont want to play as a gay or lesbian character.

Like this isnt me hateing, but its a reality that these companies are lazy.
Catering to a small minority, does little for the vast majority of their players.

Equals representation would mean, that in each game with a single protagonist, this would be a chinese.

NO. let me give you a brief rundown of how to write a character. first, the character has to be necessary to the story that is being told. second, the character's physical appearance is designed based on what role they play within the story. third, the character's personality is determined based on their place in the world of the story. fourth, you need to decide how the character would react to each situation the story would put them in.

now lets do a rundown for those two properties you mentioned, "female" and "gay".
1. it is extremely rare for any story to require a gay character, except if the story revolves around accepting diversity, which GTA does not. being female on the other hand is a tricky spot, since the criminal underworld is in a male majority.
2. people do not necessarily "look" gay unless they act according to gay stereotypes. and there are just as many ways to design a female character as there are for male characters.
3. neither "female" or "gay" are traits that affect a character's personality.
4. again, since "female" and "gay" are not personality traits, they play no role in how a character would react to the situations that would occur in a GTA game.

hopefully with this, you can see why a gay female character does not need to be in a GTA game, and why it would be complicated to do so

There are so many wrong things with this post that I am not going to bother answering back all that you said.

Neither "female" or "gay" are traits that affects a characters personality.

What an eyeroll.

well you see, the simple fact that you replied at all shows that you probably had an argument ready to go, bu then it fell apart once you realized i was right. if you werent going to answer, well that says it right there, you wouldnt have.

A gay man doesnt have to act any differntly than a straight one, in a video game.....
unless it comes down to story elements, like he has a husban (instead of a wife) ect.

Why would it effect a persons personality to be gay? huh? unless your the flamboyant gay type, thats doing it for attention and to point out to others hes gay.
Most gay people are just like normal strait people, they dont really act differntly or have differnt personalities.

Are you even gay to assume all of these about gay men?



If someone asks why I'm using an alt account, CGI and Truckusaurus got me a temp approval until I get my iconic and notorious "kurasakiichimaru" account back. :p

Yeah Asians are probably under representated in games.

A character should fit the story the writer wants to tell. That's far more important than checking off a item on your political agenda.

No, and have only met a few gay/lesbians, but they didnt "act" differntly than everyone else.
Like if you saw them on the streets, you wouldnt go "that person is obviously gay".

I'm just going to make it short... There's absolutely no reason for Rockstar not to do this on this day and age of gaming. Bye.

I'll give you one reason: sales.

Forcing in token versatility protagonists would do nothing good for the game.



There a reason why, or just because? Most people couldn’t care less about playing as either of those, but when a developer is only doing because they “have to” as some sort of check in the box, lest they or their players be criticized by a small group of internet trolls for not accepting political correctness, then all you’re doing is asking for people to get pissed and say hell no, we don’t that. SJW’s need to learn that seeing/ playing as different types of people in entertainment is not the problem; it’s the principle of how it’s approached. Stop telling people they have to.

Do you have data supporting this?

I don't think sales is the reason. GTA VI can be trash and it will still sell based on the brand alone.
