|"We here at Nintendo believe that pretend marriage should be |
between one imaginary man and one imaginary woman."
|Basically what they're doing.|
"Nintendo never intended to make any form of social commentary with the launch of 'Tomodachi Life...The relationship options in the game represent a playful alternate world rather than a real-life simulation... Tomodachi Life was intended to be a whimsical and quirky game, and that we were absolutely not trying to provide social commentary."
-Nintendo, dancing around the
issue in a statement to the AP
See? Bullshit. Whimsy and quirk are goddamn elements on the periodic table of gay and what exactly is a playful alternate word and why can't there be gay people in it? Is the game set in Tennessee or the 1950's or something?

and some people had to use the other water fountain.
|Chicken abuse: totally fine.|
Gay marriage: social commentary.
|Eyestrain and nausea: |
The future of gaming is here!

a social commentary.

-Nintendo President Satoru Iwata,
again, kind of missing the point
