And yet this rather lengthy argument can be defeated in two words:
Options > Narrative
The OP is confusing “desire to fuck everything that moves” with “people who feel they’re being shoved back into a corner because neckbeard rage about FOUR BISEXUALS?!?!!?!”
The playersexual vs. bisexual debate is also supremely stupid because it splits hairs on mechanics vs. narrative and stinks of really really not wanting to classify characters as bi.
Yay for queer characters, yay for gay/lesbian inclusion and representation. Yay for bisexuals where we can actually find them.
Nay for hang-wringy marketing and developer assurances that DA3 is in no way like DA2 with its “unrealistic” options. There is a difference between deciding to return straight and gay options to a game, and suggesting something as blithely ignorant as “the DA2 romances were too fluid.”
Chances are any possible queer options have been re-marginalized in favor of the straight male player (or so the red flags indicate; I’m thinking of ME in this instance), so it sucks for those of us who love these games and want to see ourselves and our relationships represented in them. It’s not about wanting to romance every single companion, it’s about wanting to feel like you haven’t been relegated to the purple corner, again, where your choices historically have always been more limited.
I usually don’t involve myself in this debate because the game isn’t out yet, and for all I know it could be a wonderfully diverse, open playing field. It just strikes me that the OP was missing perspective on the argument.
So yes, options. Always options.
