It is no coincidence that a lot of video games are going to be released around February. If you do belong in the former, fret not, you need not be alone. February 14 will either be the loneliest time of the month… or the most exciting. So, no real-life date? No worries, we have compiled the best video games with romance options for you. These are not just your usual cheap virtual romance either with tacked on grinding pixels and awkward animations.
These nominees center queer characters and stories, and remind players that even and especially in fantastical stories, there's still a place for real-world gender and sexuality negotiation. It tells the story of the marriage between Sir Alistair Hammerlock and Wainwright Jakobs and the fanatical cult that tries to interrupt it.

The following is a list of video games with gay , lesbian , bisexual , or transgender characters, including any others falling under the LGBT umbrella term. During the s, characters that can be argued as identifying as LGBT were rarely shown in a realistic or non-stereotypical context and were often the objects of ridicule or jokes. However, more efforts were found to make more diverse and less one-dimensional characters. And of those, only eight feature a main character who is explicitly pre-written as queer as opposed to them being queer as a character creation option. In the episodic adventure game Tales from the Borderlands , Athena and Janey are in a relationship.
