I’ve been sitting in front of the computer for a few minutes thinking about how to write this short story without noticing how much the simple fact of having to do it annoys me; how it is still obvious that there is still a long way to go within the video game industry and, above all, how certain sectors of the entertainment world reveal themselves each time a company takes a step in favor of inclusive representation. Today I want to tell you a story about Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores, a simple kiss and how it once again exposed homophobic behavior of all kinds.

Of course, before I get to the nitty-gritty of what exactly is going on, I have to tell you that some of the points I’ll talk about below can be considered spoilers for Burning shores. I won’t reveal anything extremely crucial to the plot of the expansion, but I will reveal something about a scene that takes place at the end of it. For this reason and if you want to know more about this DLC beyond what I have come to tell you here and with an article of the same completely free of spoilersYou have this other article where I told you everything you need to know about him. Now yes, let’s go.

Aloy’s controversial kiss in Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores

  • It all started when I found a tweet from peter ovo a twitter in which he put a very specific DLC image
  • In her, Aloy can be seen kissing a character she will supposedly have a romantic relationship with in the future.
  • The tweet was accompanied by the following message: How does this improve the game?
  • I suppose that a kiss between two girls is something not everyone can tolerate
  • Worst of all was when I walked in to look at the responses, but not so much to meet aggressive people, but with other types of people who also have fabric
  • The tweet in question is full of replies from people complaining about the kiss as a poor resource to give depth to the character of Aloy, and that’s where I climbed the walls the most
  • Camouflage homophobia with a fake exercise in intellectualism and pseudo-narrative analysis seems to me, to be honest, quite pathetic
  • I leave you with the picture in question to give a little more context to all this

What do you think of all this? I don’t know if I’m going to sound too abrupt with this, but it’s already 2023; If in the 21st century it still shocks you to see how two girls kiss in a video game, you might have a problem. And now, if you’re one of those people who takes to Twitter to shit about it; Please return to your cave. I don’t want you in my video games.
