It would appear that medieval-tinged fantasy worlds are more progressive than we are, as gay marriage is perfectly acceptable in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The news comes by way of Bethesda marketing man Pete Hines, who confirms that either gender can be married, regardless of your own.
"Not hush hush, just not making a huge deal out of it. You can marry anyone," he said. "... Should clarify. Not any NPC, just mean any male or female. Doesn’t matter what you’re playing."
As if I needed any further reason to be excited for this game, the fact I could marry a gay bipedal lizard has totally sealed the deal. Great stuff!
