Video: LGBTI characters in games are important

And here's why.

Some tremendous steps toward LGBTI equality have been taken of late - the gay marriage referendum in Ireland being one particularly inspiring example. There's still a ways to go, of course, but overall it's encouraging to see acceptance growing in the public consciousness.

Happily video games are no exception to this trend, so here's Aoife to celebrate the LGBTI characters done right. Which is to say, portrayed as normal people. Which is what they are.

One last thing - this video contains mild spoilers for The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC. Consider yourself warned.
