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.
10) The Mass Effect Series
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!
