A game that really upset me with its queer rep was Fallout 4. Now, I’m not gonna say the Fallout series has been particularly good with this but it is. Telling, to me, that Fallout New Vegas allowed you to explicitly define your characters sexuality and preferences through dialogue. And Bethesda took one look at that and decided “Well what if the player is forced into a straight marriage at the begining of the game?”
And of course, once you get into the game itself you can romance whoever you want because everyone is bi. But that now applies to YOU as well. The game has made it impossible to be homosexual, aromatic, asexual, or a number of other points on the sexuality spectrum you might want to be. There arent even any real options in the intro to express that, like, maybe the marriage was one of convenience. Or maybe you don’t like or care about your spouse. It’s always a happy 50s-style nuclear family with zero way to break from this fiction.
Meanwhile in Fallout New Vegas I can literally bond with a character over the fact that were both lesbians, or tell the lady who’s hitting on me, no thanks , I’m a gay man, or flirt with my own brain (though that is perhaps not pertinent to queer representation precisely)
