If i wanted a game, and a store didnt have it, i would purchase it somewhere else. Probably wouldnt shop their again if they had this attitude.

From you saying 'The world isn't ready for it' I think this means you dont think it is a bad thing, although i can not tell. One question, when is the world ready for it?
Alright open view:

We already have seen intolerence in general around the world about homosexual content. People still precieve it as some sort of sickness that can't be cured. Though it may not be acceptable to segrigate gays, I do wanna mention that overly open depiction of content that isn't accepted by quite a few cultures around the world isn't productive.

Game developers have to be careful as to how to walk this thin line. It would be like creating the movie Kingdom of Heaven. How do you careate something that will cause so much controversy? Like Ridely Scott said, "How a Porcupine makes love; very carefully."

The only cultures you'd really want to reach with gaming are probably the western and asian. Do they have problems with homosexuality? I seriously don't think that "the world isn't ready for it"... I think it quite is.
And if it isn't, this game is likely to make make it ready.

To quote Voltaire: "I may not agree with your views but I'll defend your right to say them."

Personally, I do not agree with homosexual relationships; I have my reasons. However that doesn't necessary mean that I am a gay hater. I will tolerate a person's preference. Though I just don't expect a person to lecture me into changing my position on the topic.

Of course... But you're not talking about yourself, you're talking about the world. That's quite a difference.

I don't have problems with homosexual games. They could be fun. I remember, when I used to play with the first Sims, and I made same sex couples, just because I enjoyed it. Gays have the rights too, to appear in video games. They are humans too, plus, it wasn't their choise, to be gays or straight. I would try out these kind of games, if my parents would allow me to buy it

I don't see why this game shouldn't be released..whoever doesn't validate homosexuality...don't play the game,simple as that!!!why does the world tend to make things more complicated then necessary?
