13/ LGBTQ Video Game Archive

13620772_1650273755296574_4400512501777342288_nThe LGBTQ Video Game Archive provides a searchable, browse able resource for exploring these issues in the context of video gaming. Traditionally a masculine pursuit, the archive seeks to chart depictions of queer characters throughout the history of gaming.

Although the resource admits that calling itself an ‘archive’ is not quite correct in this context – it is more a index of information about LGBTQ game – it is nevertheless and excellent research tool.

The archive allows you to browse LGBTQ references in games across eras, explore video game characters by orientation, look up any differences in representation that may be caused by game localisation and generally explore the developing inclusion of queer content in digital gaming.
