Bethesda vice president Pete Hines confirmed that there will be an option for same-sex marriage in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Replying to a fan on Twitter, Hines wrote, “Not making a huge deal out of it. You can marry anyone.” Some of you will recall that some BioWare fans were not pleased with the homosexual romance options in Dragon Age II. I’m curious to see if Skyrim will elicit a similar reaction.

I love that this is an option in the game. It is, after all, role-playing. I think it’s great that homosexual gamers have an option to play as a character that reflects their lifestyle. Same-sex marriages happen all over the world and it’s fantastic that a videogame reflects modern society. I’m sure Bethesda will get some unnecessary heat for having same-sex marriage in a videogame…and I’m sure a lot of it will be based on stupidity.

What do you think about same-sex marriages in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim?

    This should be the standard in every RPG.

    Although not a fan of the gay marriage, I would be more than happy to team up with my fellow homo-sapiens so that we may rise up and oppose inter-species marriage. I mean, c'mon! What kind of a digital world will we be inheriting when we allow a Breton to marry a Khajiit? Would you be O.K. if you had an in-game Nord daughter marry an Argonian? That’s just wrong! If the silicon gods wanted us to have intercourse with reptiles, they would have at least programmed them with a workable phallus.

    I mean, when will it end? If we allow Bethesda to do what it wants in a game they created without my input, what will they be able to do next? Maybe they'll allow your character to marry Dogmeat in Fallout 4. What if they allow you to fall in love and marry a fork? Nuts, I say! We must put an end to their freedom of being able to program anything they want into a game of complete unimportance of their own design!

    I propose that we all get together with pitchforks and torches and march right up to their offices in Rockville and storm the development offices. We will drive out all the digital heathens and take over the programming of the game. Then, we will change the game as we see fit and cast out the original development team to Oblivion.

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is my plan on how to get a job nowadays.

      I always thought the best way was to answer them when they ask "What will you bring to the team or group if offered the position?" "Balls"

        That will only work if you say it just like Tony Montana.

      Don't blame me! That eating utensil was trying to fork the whole game.

      I tried to just spoon… but that wasn't good enough.

        LOL! How the hell did you know I was talking about you when I mentioned marrying a fork?

          It doesn't take a forking genius.
