    If Russia wants to be intolerant then let them... if I ran a big games software Corp. I'd go one better (given Russia is a pretty small market in most gaming segments); I'd introduce LGBTI elements into every game and then cite those when not releasing it in Russia - can you imagine the outcry if game companies decided to do that en mass? Yes, there'd be a bunch of pirating but it'd all be illegal in a way the Russian government actually cared about, finally!


    Yes I'm intolerant, I'm intolerant of intolerant people - though it's more an allergy than an intolerance :D ;) <

      If I ran a big company, I'd refuse to release in Russia on principle. It would change nothing, but it might make more people take notice of the issue.

    Or just don't release in Russia? It'd shock me if the projected sales were that high.

      I know they did, hence my comment. Guess you can't tell tone from text.
