WGE: The role of Anders certainly raises some interesting questions on the issue of sexuality in gaming. What’s your take on the great debate?

Howden: The Dragon Age games are very forward thinking. I think it’s amazing you can play the game as a man or a woman and be gay or straight. Some people told me how brave they thought I was for recording the gay option with the kissing and love scenes. It wasn’t that brave of me really as I was alone in the booth snogging the back of my hand. I’ve played gay characters in the past though and it’s really not an issue for me. I was quite disappointed to read homophobic comments on some of the Dragon Age YouTube videos. Come on people, it’s the 21st century and all that.
