Would you play a game that was gay themed?

I'm talking like over the top flamboyant gay.
Like with a great VAs and silly powers. And with ridiculous bad guys and clever levels. Like a beat-em-up?

I would. Sounds like fun.

You mean like a stereotypical gay, I think that would offend both homosexuals and homophobics at the same time so maybe not a great idea.

Why does it have to be gay? Why can't it just be a wacky, over-the-top game? What's the point of making the guy a homosexual and starting a bunch of controversy?

@theatrical_cat

Because there are already wacky over the top games.
And they're usually pretty damn fun.

I'm asking if you would play one centered around being gay/ in a gay universe.

No, I get that, I just don't get why it would be gay. I mean, what would it add to the game to make a character or characters stereotypes (and probably offensive stereotypes, at that)?

Maybe what would make you happy is if say, for example, Lollipop Chainsaw was Romeo instead of Juliet. That would basically tick all of your boxes. I would have to admit that would make that game even more weird though.

There's already been tons of Japanese games like this. Cho Aniki anyone?


The Bishi Bashi Special series is awesome, and it has its moments of dipping into this territory. Doesn't bother me any, it's kind of just accepted under general Japanese wackiness.

What do you mean gay themed?

There is a huge difference between gay and over the top campy, which is if what you mean then hell no
