Denby Grace, the senior producer for 2K Games' Mafia II has apologised for a flip answer to a rather stock interview question in which he said "gay space marines" were the biggest problem facing video games.
Asked "what do you think is the biggest problem current games suffer from?" Grace told MTV Multiplayer: "It's a very good question and maybe a little general for a concise answer. An obsession with gay space marines."
That didn't go over so well with GayGamer.net, which asked 2K Games for a response to Grace's remarks. The site got an apology instead. Grace called his own comments a "thoughtless remark" that attempted to make light of "the hyper-macho 'bromance' featured in a lot of military shooters... I apologise unreservedly."
