Video gaming is a lot of things to a lot of different people. For some it offers the chance to kick back and relax, for others it offers the chance for heroic escapism. But what if you couldn’t enjoy games the way that your friends could? What if that option wasn’t available to you?
Nintendo have released a statement addressing an issue concerning one of their games – Tomodachi Life – in that players are unable to form same-sex relationships with other players. Rather than making plans to change the game, due for release on June 6th, the company have decided not to make alterations, and have asserted that they “never intended to make any form of social commentary with the launch of Tomodachi Life.”
Unfortunately, they must realise that they already have.
