ansemaru: (HS- karkat vantas film critic)
I talk about game design and do amateurish criticism, and I plan on posting more of it here on Dreamwidth. For the sake of context, I'm going to use this post to link to all of the old writing on games and shit from my Livejournal days that I've got floating around.

Matters of Scale
The Medium Makes the Message
A Little History
Thoughts on Yaoi (not 100% about games but still relevant meta)
untitled MGS meta crap
Meta on Solid Snake
Naoto Shirogane Meta
some incoherent mgs4 postmortem that i still can't parse">

I will give the games industry this: it has made tangible progress. The fact that games have gay options at all is a positive sign of the times- a decade ago, I would not have enough of a pool of reference to make this article in the first place.

That said: within the games that have a protagonist that is not obligatorily heterosexual, there is a troubling trend. All homosexual protagonists can only be homosexual by player choice, and are coded bisexual by the game's inherent structure.

This is a bit long. Click to read the rest. )
