GamingThread I still can’t believe you can *spoilers* in Persona 5 lol.

Perhaps this is an unpopular opinion, but I see nothing wrong with allowing writers to tell the stories they wish to tell. None of the characters in any of the Persona games REQUIRE being romanced. I was always fond of telling others, "If you don't like gay marriage, don't have one." This is the odd corrolary, where if you don't want to flirt/romance a character, then... don't? I see nothing wrong with allowing for literary license and think Atlus does a GREAT job of incorporating uncomfortable realities into it's storylines. Guess what, sex workers (Kawakami) are a thing. People can have questions about gender identity (Naoto) and agorophobes (Futaba) need love, too. My wife and I played the original P5 together and we both connected with Futaba. Different people can see the game/situation differently--which is what makes the choices and options worthwhile. We could use MORE choice, not less. Censoring stories just because you don't like them is like burning books. Let the storytellers tell their stories.
