The 8 best video games for lesbians
It is common knowledge that lesbians love gaming. So what are the best video games out there for gay females to play and feel connected to their characters? Mainstream gaming is as vanilla as it gets, yet when you have actual LGBT representation in a videogame, this may help a person get at peace with their sexuality, identity, and self.
No longer do you have to agonize and search for games that represent you and your sexuality for what seems like an eternity. Lesbian games are more popular than ever. It is relatively easy to get your hands on a decent one, and our guide through some of the best is designed to offer some insight into games you may not be aware of.
These games provide a wonderful platform to converse and relax together. It can be done online or in person. Besides, they provide you with a great talking point, as when you explore the girls you like at a local lesbian chat, you can test your compatibility by discussing (or recommending) your favorite games and judge her character by your lady’s reaction.
Then, you can continue your conversation online, go playing a video game together, or if you are extremely compatible by your standards – meet in person. Choose whichever you prefer doesn’t matter as long as you are having fun.
Our list is in no particular order but here goes;
