First-Person Perspective: Invisible Sexualities

Most videogames are still coming to grips with discussing sexuality in a mature way, many titles attempting to cast off the straight, teenage male viewpoint that defines much of the industry. Looking at how many problems the medium still has in offering realistic female characters it seems almost too much to ask that developers/publishers would implement LGBTQIA narratives to their work. That doesn’t mean it isn’t worth calling attention to where the issue stands, though. (Culture, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty)
