Perhaps I didn't explain this well enough the first time around, but my point -- with this particular aspect of things, anyways -- was that it would be very difficult for a writer to make a meaningful degree of characterization in this regard without it overcoming the rest of the character's identity in the limited "screen time" they have throughout the game's story. To me, tossing in a curt bio line to the tune of "btw, he's gay" and calling it a day is as much of a disservice to the narrative as it would be to go overboard in announcing it. Of course, this is the viewpoint of someone who dearly wishes that things like sexuality could just be accepted as private matters. To me, unless that aspect of a character is an organic part of the story, it doesn't need to be mentioned. Straight or gay, trans or cis, I don't see how any of it's relevant or why any of it needs to be public information unless it ties into the greater story in some way. If those relationships are happening in the story, if that backstory for a character is relevant, and the writers can weave it in without stealing the spotlight from where it really needs to be... I would applaud that. That would be masterful storytelling. I just don't see things done masterfully very often, so I'm inclined to skepticism.
