10 Video Games That Let You Play As a Lesbian or Bisexual Woman

9) Overwatch

Alright, now I know this one is just cheating. But is it really a list without Overwatch involved in it?

Overwatch’s Tracer’s epic come-out in the comic ‘Reflections’ was almost as bad of a shit fest as Ellie’s in terms of fanbase feedback. But again, who gives an actual damn?

Overwatch is an FPS that many players in the world enjoy, the game has a dedicated fandom and its very own league. With such a huge, diverse fanbase it would be silly of Blizzard not to include characters that the LGBT community could connect with: so in came Tracer. She is the first LGBT character to be revealed to Overwatch’s community, but Blizzard has reassured she most certainly won’t be the last.

All I’m gonna say is this: let it be Sombra.

Anyway.


10) The Mass Effect Series

Despite what you may think of Andromeda, it had some excellent lady loves.

I’ve still not quite forgiven Bioware for not allowing my Shepard to romance Miranda or Jack, but it’s whatever. I guess I’ll romance Liara… Again.  Unlike the Dragon Age series, Bioware’s sci-fi drama hasn’t been the best when it comes to lesbian/bisexual women, often stating facts about their lore (just search Asari lore, you’ll get what I mean) and then changing it.

But, even if Mass Effect’s original trilogy wasn’t perfect when it came to giving us options that weren’t Liara, Andromeda’s romances made up for a lot of that. Vetra Nyx’s romance, a female turian gun wrangler, with sister Ryder has to be one of my favourite romances that I played last year and that was with no love scene! But even if you didn’t really feel the love for Vetra, there were more options with the asari Peebee (despite that love scene) and the dorkiest lady alive, Suvi Anwar.

While Andromeda may have failed in a lot of other ways, it gave me enough lady love to last a 50 hour playthrough and hence why you should give it a try!

When not sleeping (which is...a lot of the time), Aimee is writing up a storm for her latest ideas. Hailing from the city Birmingham, she's had a love for video games since playing Star Wars Episode 1: Racer on the PC with her trusty joystick! Since then she's developed a firm love for RPGs and JRPGs and considers them her second love, straight after dogs. Her favourite games are: Tales of Berseria, Dragon Age II (don't judge!), Final Fantasy X and Pyre. You can hear her ramble about them @honhonitsaimee on Twitter.
