    Yup.

    Like seriously, no one cares about your god damn mewling. If it matters that much to you, play something else.

    EA must be thrilled that this is their controversy this time.

    EA is such a weird company.

    They do things like this that have us singing praises, then they turn around and shit all over their Star Wars exclusive license or pump out cookie cutter sports games or test heinous lootbox implementations.

    Good on them. I've made sure to make my company females all the way through and to never pick the male option, I'm sure these idiots will still buy the game so I'm hoping to make their "immersive" experience as miserable as possible.

    Make your own game if you don't like it. I can't wait for a day where it doesn't matter who the characters are. It shouldn't matter. As long as it's a good game and has a good story, who cares?

    Nice work EA. It's good to see a big publisher pushing back against the misogynist and ableist bullshit that followed that reveal. Will be buying for the first time since BF3.

    I'm going to be buying this game if I like it or not at this point. Good on the devs. No beating around the bush here, people who are pissed are either closet or blatant sexists, plain and simple.

    I hate to say that I'm not surprised some group out there would have a problem with this. You'd think in 2018 this would no longer be such a thing but with the internet and social media, someone will always push against the popular and "right" option just to stand out.

    Good on EA for what they said.
