Need a new video game to consume your every waking thought? Maybe you’re into playing through long, tragic stories about loss or maybe you want to marry and divorce an entire town while running your dead grandfather’s farm? Or perhaps romancing brooding mythology figures while hacking and slashing your way through the underworld is more your style? For all you queers slouched in your gaming chairs looking for a game to keep you up at night, quiz on. Or idle in the character creation menu for an hour — that’s cool too.

I’ve never played the last of us. I’m looking forward to the remake coming out this year.
I got night in the woods, which I’ve played several times! Spot on
I was a backer for that and it’s still probably my favorite thing I have ever supported. C R I M E S
Considering I think it’s a masterpiece, yay TLOU 2!
Really enjoyed this! Got nights in the wood 🥰
Also got The Last of Us 2, and lots of emotions sounds right on brand for me.
Right?! I just sat kind of stunned when I finished it unsure of how to process so my emotions about it and it preoccupied me for WEEKS. Which is really hard to deal with when nobody in my immediate life has played it yet so I had no one to proceed with,which might make it the most lesbian game ever lol.
This is the very one my partner picked out for us to start two weeks ago that they thought I’d enjoy. I hadn’t played a video game that was a proper game since Pokémon FireRed at ten – and now we’ve played 35 hours…
Life is Strange: True Colors. Sounds good to me!
Ah, Gone Home. The only game I have where I intentionally set out to get every achievement on Steam.
I love this one. I want to just snoop and explore people’s houses apparently lol. But I was seriously afraid what I would find in the attic because I actually grew up in the 90s when gays were very often buried.
Yeah, I was 14 the year Gone Home is set in, so I remember those days too.
I love that so much
Fire Emblem: 3 Houses for life :D always love the quizzes!
Everyone needs to play unpacking. Just saying <3
I just finished it the other day! I don’t know why it’s so soothing to unpack virtual stuff when I have a bunch of laundry I could be putting away RIGHT THERE, but here we are lol.
i don’t think i have it in me to play anime chess. so instead i’ll say that i finished Prey, which has an entire ex girlfriend/li for the fem protagonist who makes it out alive! and is a good rpg.
and that i should just play stardew valley already
I’ll have to check Prey out! I’m not the best at FPS games, but I’ll definitely give it a go!
I have been told to play Night in the Woods by so many people! It made me sad before the opening credits so I have never made it that far though
As a person who played a shameful amount of Fire Emblem 3 Houses during the pandemic, I’m very happy to see it on this list (Dorothea’s s-support is my favorite of the WLW options)
Absolutely a Dorothea fan. Did you go Black Eagles route or something else?
“You should play Stardew Valley!”
What do you think I’ve been doing for multiple hours every night for the past week and a half, quiz??
I’d love to see a list of what the other possible results were!
Ahhh, I love that! And I’ll list the other possible results here:
Life is Strange: True Colors
The Last of Us II
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
The Sims 4
Night in the Woods
Still looking for a game that lets me take proper care of my cat.
I love this quiz and the options given!
One of the most interesting things about video games is that they’re capable of being so many different things. You can play them for the story and characters, for the gameplay, for the multiplayer, for the creativity. And sometimes you can even do all of those things at once! Reading this article has taught me what queer games are the Decentraland Alternatives Worth Trying and from where I can download it. It is great to see that number of amazing games developed in LGBT theme.
would it be possible to have a list of the games proposed here? i got one that i already played (stardew valley lol, probably speaks of how good the quizz is) but now i’m curious about the other options :)
