For example, having 2 females kiss each other in The Last of Us 2 or implementing female soldiers in BFV because one of the devs daughter asked for it.

I don't mind as long as they cater to my interests. In that sense, yes I'm ok with it. Otherwise, depends how far they go with it.

If they want to push an agenda, that's fine, but they have to know how to do it tactfully. If they do it too forcefully or lay it on too thick, odds are they'll only generate scorn and resentment in their attempt to foster consideration and acceptance.

Putting an agenda into a game effectively cuts your audience in half.

Having a political opinion as a business is the dumbest thing you can do. I have boycotted several places because their owners couldn't keep their fool mouths shut. (Burger king, Papa john's, jimmy johns, chik fil a , etc)

Of course. It's not like games aren't already influenced from the minds that make them. It's a part of creativity.

I don’t care either way, as long as the game is fun, then I’m good to go.

If it fits within the narrative of the story it's fine. If it's just put in the game for some kind of statement then f*** that noise.

I have more issues with people who think that devs shouldn't be allowed to do something because they (the player) have religious hang ups.
