Quoted for awesome...Isn't that precious, a game that would allow mass murder and encourage drug abuse, bribery blackmail, membership in criminal organisations, probably assassination.
But heaven forbid that feminists be offended!
Actually as it's not something that I ever did in RL, I've only ever roleplayed pregnancy and motherhood (and fatherhood) with characters in pnp. I've even had one situation where 2, not biologically related, characters had children in their respective families that ended up marrying and having children. I suppose that's what can happen when you have a campaign world that's lasted for 20 years real time.<sees oncoming exchange and winces.>
SHALL WE TALK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE-ISH?
Pregnancy. Motherhood. Family.
You don't see it in games. It's not terribly appropriate or entertaining. Fable dallied with it a bit. Should CP2077 embrace it? Make it an option? Avoid it?
It is a huge part of real life, of course, and it shows up in the Lifepath generator in CP2020, but rarely has an in-game effect.
Would you like to see a focus on some of these aspects in CP2077? Would you like to try role-playing a mother? A wife? A daughter?
Oh oh oh, I want to roleplay a single mother, only the baby isn't actually a baby, but some kind of robotic pretend-baby that I can remotely detonate after my enemies kidnap it.Would you like to see a focus on some of these aspects in CP2077?

Well they touched pregnancy in Dragon Age: Origins and in Witcher 2 but those were just...evil?
I think you could somehow tie pregnancy to the story like "Six months later..." , but I don't really care either way if there is pregnancy or not.
Pregnant npc occasionally would bring some realism though.
I guess one of the more obvious questions then is what percentage of pregnancies would rely on artificial incemination by 2077? Also, in 2020 it was possible to have a complete sex change, including the ability to father or bear children. How would that affect society, especially lif it became more common?
I wouldn't mind if CDPR approached the issue of parenthood in some side quest, but it's not really related to the protagonist being female.
Well, parenthood is gender-independent, albeit not how you respond to it, but motherhood and pregnancy are very gender specific.
Hmm. Surgically-created androgynes in the game? What does happen if you buy the appropriate cyberware, ( it's in the base book, to a point)?
Can you now choose your gender and/or percieved gender? Would NPCs respond depending on which switch you flicked in the morning?
A very cool NPC in a game called Unknown Armies could do this. Quite useful.
I beg to differ. The question of parenthood holds many more 'issues' for female characters than it does male characters, in a very physical sense.
