Same-Sex Marriage An Option In The Elder Scrolls V
Well, New York did it. Why not the new Elder Scrolls?
In games where freedom is key, we should be able to do anything we want. We should be able to marry any eligible bachelor or bachelorette, regardless of our own gender. Right? Well, if you support this idea, you'll like such freedom of choice in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Bethesda vice president of PR and marketing Pete Hines confirmed on his Twitter page that you'll be able to "marry anyone."
"@Jadis232 Not hush hush, just not making a huge deal out of it. You can marry anyone."
He later clarified that we can't technically marry "anyone" (not all NPCs count), but for the most part, gender shouldn't matter. We've heard similar things about Mass Effect 3 and...well, we at PSXE aren't stupid enough to comment on the issue one way or the other. And while it's always a big subject of debate - as it always is in real life - we must ask: please don't get involved in a moral or political debate in the Comments. Please. I just don't have the strength to deal with it.
