The list includes the best video games with LGBTQ characters and storylines, games favored by LGBT people or, much like our love for big pop divas, just great games in general.
1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
The perfect antidote to the corona virus pandemic sweeping the globe right now. Essentially, the game is a prettier life simulator transporting the player to their own deserted island
2. Bayonetta 2
While it was designed with a straight male player in mind, gays really ate her up. Fierce costumes, campiness and over the top fighting styles, she’s got all the makings of a gay icon. The second instalment in the hack-n-slash action series is considered to be a big improvement over the first, and with a third game on the way.
5. Legend of Zelda: BOTW
The most recent installment is widely considered to be one of the greatest games of all time, transporting Link into an open-world Hyrule. There are no words to how incredible this whole experience is. It’s a game you can get lost in for weeks
7. Pokémon Sword and Shield
It offers the most drastic change to the beloved series in years, inviting players into a quasi-open world region known as Galar – loosely based on the United Kingdom – which allows Pokémon to roam free with free camera movement and dynamic weather changes. The games also introduced a host of new features including raid battles, cooking, and a new battle option called Gigantamaxing, where Pokemon become super-sized and super-powered. Oh, and there’s also a Galarian version of Rapidash, a unicorn Fairy/Psychic type, which of course queer fans adopted as their own.
