Interesting that the biggest hot topics are what Anthem doesn't have.
Personally, I'm fine with all these things not being there.
And while romances are off the table, for now, I understand relationships and friendships will be a staple element.
I see a lot of disappointment regarding the absence of romance, but if it doesn't suit the narrative, then they shouldn't force it. I get the impression that this is much more of a straight action game anyway.
I don't work for EA.
