Rev Rant: gaaaaaaaaaaaaay

3:00 PM on 11.04.2009 // Anthony Burch

Every week, sort of, features editor (Reverend) Anthony Burch discusses games and gamer culture in his "Rev Rant" video series.

Sorry about the lack of a rant last week. Camera was in the shop.

This week, I'd like to talk about portrayals of homosexuality in games and how they tend to be either really bad, or underwhelming despite good intentions on the part of the writers.

Relatively mild spoilers ensue for Persona 4, GTA IV, Polaris, and Handle With Care. Click above to watch the video, assuming none of that bothers you.

And, er, try to ignore the mirrored credits for this fanvid playing over the end of the video.
