Queerty reports the mutual fund The Timothy Group, which bases its investments on companies they deem moral, has put out their annual list of questionable video games. In their "score card" they use categories such as "Sex," "Violence," "Drugs," "Comic Mischief," and of course "Gay/Lesbian" to determine a game's morality. Huh? Here's the breakdown of the games they found questionable:
Grand Theft Auto IV: "Homosexual Encounters: The main character can solicit dates from males on his online dating website, but will be turned down because he lists himself as a straight male."
Saints Row 2: "Homosexual Encounters: Players can customize their character in any way imaginable. You can cross dress your character, and select voices to match your homosexual or transgender created player. Characters like 'Randy the Tranny' were used in marketing the game."
Mass Effect: "Lesbian Encounters: The sexual encounter occurs even if you create a female character, which opens the door to same-sex relationships."
Bully: Scholarship Edition: "Homosexual Encounters: Gay achievements such as 'over the rainbow' can be reached on the Xbox 360 when you kiss 20 boys."
Fable II: "Homosexual Encounters: Players can have a gay/lesbian marriage and have gay/lesbian sex."
Army of Two: "Homosexual Encounters: Somewhat homoerotic undertones between the two main characters are present."
Take a look at this clip with scenes from Grand Theft Auto IV -- if you have the stomach for it. Then think to yourself: Is this what we should be worried about?
