        Notice how that was naturally incorporated into normal dialogue and not stamped at the top of the screen when the character is introduced or referred to? or worse, stated aloud by the character?

          If the character is an apparently gender less being like, a metal box, what gender is it? We would simply refer to it, as an IT. However if that character was sentient and wished to be referred to as a male, then this would make complete sense, even more so if that character was previously biologically human.

            and this couldn't be incorporated naturally into dialogue why, exactly?

              Because it's a bio, not dialogue.

                I think his point is that this isn't the sort of information that is important enough to be included in a character bio. It is one of the many things about a character that normally you would just pick up on naturally later on.

                That isn't a bio. It is a character select screen. All it should have is a characters name and any basic information relating to their gameplay (like role).

            Just have the characters use the desired pronoun in their speech. No need to billboard what the pronoun is.

        Anyone who complains about "pronouns" genuinely does not understand the actual concept and is only referring to the act of listing them, not any broader concept.

      Im sorry, I don't have brain worms, Im not being obtuse, so you will have to explain to me why a robot in a science fiction setting having a male identity is woke.

        It's the ritualistic declaration of that identity. People aren't just calling the robot a dude and it goes along with it, it's that the robot is a he/him

          In the past, the robot might have just had a male voice and the gender pro noun would have been assumed, true, like Bender. I think in most cases thats how it should probably be handled but these days they feel it is a best practice to do that front facing as well.

          at the end of the day, it barely matters, if the game is good, it wont make it worse. If the game is bad, it wont make it better.

                You're so right anon, there are games where writing isn't the focus, so obviously writing never matters in any game and nobody should ever give a shit

                A terrible story will ruin people's perception of the game, no matter how gameplay-focused it is. "Bad story" and "hardly even a story" aren't the same.

        Why do video game characters need stated and pronouns at all? Why is that on the screen? Why is that important? How does the game benefit from that? It doesn't. It's just progressive moronation.

            (Not him). Explicitly declaring your pronouns started in the trans community as a means of getting external parties to affirm or comply with their internal perception of themselves i.e. they dislike it if someone uses the wrong pronoun because it is viewed as a denial of their gender identity, which is uncomfortable to deal with. So the practice originates as a defensive measure for people whom using the wrong pronoun causes a perceived harm. It only has a function in that people who really dislike being called the wrong gender use it.
            But for non-trans people, there is no similar harm caused by using the wrong pronoun with them. If you call a cis-man a "she", that can easily be brushed off since it is overtly clear by all perspectives that using "she" is wrong and "he" is correct. There is no identity crisis-adjacent internal conflict or feeling of denial by the community in those cases (except in the extreme cases where a whole community is gaslighting someone who is susceptible to being gaslit). So for those people, declaring your pronoun isn't important, because being "misgendered" isn't at all so damaging. Same for most robot characters. I would not expect them to be so concerned with their gender identity that using the wrong pronoun harms them. So for most characters, there is no reason for them to declare their pronouns for the purpose of enforcing their use. It is only present in the game because on Twitter, it became a practice among some circles to copy what trans people do in their bios.

    The complaint is that they felt it so important that the pronouns had to be explicitly declared on the select screen. To give a similar game contrast, Overwatch (which is also a "progressive" game in other ways, make no mistake) doesn't feel the need to inform you so blatantly what every character's pronouns are. You will just intuit that Tracer is a girl and uses she/her for example. Even for the characters with non-obvious pronouns, they don't act like it is so important that they need to make sure they remind you all the time so that you don't get it wrong.

      They were pretty annoying about mole-woman and even then I don't think they resorted to putting her they/them pronouns onscreen in-game

      That makes more sense. my reaction to seeing it for robots is always to roll my eyes. In fiction, it does provide an interesting opportunity to explore gender presentation and the expectations of them. Transformers choosing their genders is not as stupid as it sounds, but most of them should not care because they're synthetic lifeforms but the ones that grew up around humans might want to present as a human gender concept.
