If the cover art depicts a girl or woman, you will either be saving her or collecting her for your harem party. You will not be playing as her.

If the game does let you play as a female character, you will not be romancing any other girls. Unless you're playing Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, in which case you have one token GxG romance option.

Vita games and the queer indie games scene have spoiled me. And so has yuri as a "genre." Not because I don't like guys and agender people too, but because video game hetero romances tend to feel creepy to me for some reason.

On that note, Fate/EXTELLA for Vita and PS4 is now my favourite game ever. And is extremely gay. ^^;;

It's an enchanting game where you explore a wondrous land ... that has monsters coded as "tribal" and "indigenous" in the way they dress and build dwellings.

It gets worse )

Don't get me wrong, Zelda games have always had problematic stuff in them. Like the Gerudo. But like, the main "generic enemies" throughout most of the series, the Moblins, are portrayed as fully-sapient professional soldiers. Sometimes silly ones, as in Wind Waker, but soldiers nonetheless, who are part of an occupying army. And who are moral actors capable of making their own choices, like the ones in the original Legend of Zelda who aid Link in secret.

Is no one else bothered by this? ^^;;;; Because it looks like a gorgeous game, but I really can't get past this, and it seems like no one I follow has even noticed. If they talk about the indigenous-coded monsters at all, it's to say how the game lets you kill them in creative ways.

... on the plus side, it did give us shirtless Link.
