The only problem I see that some parents might have with the game is that there is a debate as to whether or not Vanille and Fang are lesbian lovers. While I haven't a problem with LGBT characters (though I'd admit I'd be sad in this case since Vanille is the most attractive of the characters lol), I have always pointed to the FF games as being far more family friendly. The games are not overtly "occult" (as some worry about fantasy games) and the games don't have realistic combat (in comparison to the blood and guts of, say, Dragon Age).
That is to say, at least for me, the FF games have always been games I could readily say parents could have in their houses. After all, parents do have a right to dictate and know what their kids are playing. But in this case, as the characters are subtly lesbian in their relationship, or so many have said, this would then be one less game I could point to that families wouldn't have a problem with their kids playing. With overtly lesbian characters, then, some families might fear that game companies are trying to indoctrinate PC motivations to kids.
Has Square Enix said anything about this? If not, I wonder what their thoughts are. Doing a quick check on the web, from places like gamefaqs, people are talking aloud about these two characters. Again, it isn't that I myself have a problem with gay or lesbian characters...in fact I'm all in favor of LGBT marriages and service in the military. On the other hands, I want to have the right answers to parents who do worry about some of the things that kids are calling for. I'd hate to have parents say I lie to them about safety issues.
What say you?
