Gay gaming.

I have a gay friend that wants to get into video games in a big way but he wants to invest in a company that is most sensitive to the interests of the gay community.

What console would best cater to his wants and needs?

    Nothing made by a gaming company.

    The reason I say PS3 is because two gay men bring a lot of income into one house therefore they can more easily afford it than just a heterosexual couple.

    It's a pretty damned entertaining site, even for us breeders.

    As a gay guy, I have an insatiable desire for wiis. Ever day I like to waggle my wii, twist it and point it to get the most filling experience possible. But I don't like playing with just my wii, other people's wiis are just as good. There's just something thrilling about waggling some stranger's wii. Though I wish the wiis came in other colors. I'd like to see what a black wii would like in my hands; I wonder if I'd be able to handle it...

    Given that he wants to get into gaming in a big way without actually knowing anything about any games, I'm tempted to call shenanigans, but:

    I'd say it's really a question of what games he thinks he'd prefer. I mean, there's a lot to be said for the gay potential of Katamari Damacy, for example. Or Gears of War, I guess. We all know gaming is about the games themselves rather than the systems (right guys?), and of course the game companies don't give a flying fuck who plays their games.

    Point him to the sites above, let him get a feel for what he might want to play, and then pinpoint the system that has the most of those games. In the meantime, get him a DS. Everyone loves a DS.

    Bioware's RPGs seem fairly "inclusive." And you can't go wrong with The Sims 2.

    Why would being Gay make any difference to how you enjoyed video gaming?

    Does Pikmin suddenly become some machiavellian power struggle with deep meaningful and thought provoking race issues? NO. Its fucking Pikmin no matter what sexual preference you have.

    If anything, this thread should be locked. Not only did we do this pretty thoroughly a few days ago but it is such a non-issue that the threads always devolve into borderline offensive.

    Hey, the fact that I prefer to insert my penis into a vagina makes Twilight Princess a completely different experience than if I preferred to insert my penis into a male butthole.

    I mean, with the sword, and the enemies.....it's like a completely different game if I chose to stick my dick into a person the same sex as I am when I'm not playing.

    Completely different.

    Oh man, don't get me started on Pokemon. I knew this girl who likes other girls, and she played Pokemon once, and her head exploded. Seriously, there was blood coming out of her ears and everything.

    However, there was this other girl who liked to ride the cock, and she was quoted as to saying that Pokemon "was pretty fun".

    Your choice on how you give and recieve orgasms makes a total difference in video games.

    I'm a heterosexual male, but If I was drunk enough there is a decent chance I would have sex with John Romero. He has such gorgeous hair for a man.

    Uhhh... I know a gay couple who plays video games. They're pretty casual gamers, and like the rest of the casual gamers on the planet they have a (surprise!) PS2.

    :D Oh wow I didn't expect that! You remembered! That is so thoughtful of you!

    To sum up what everyone says, yeah, gaming actually has very little to do with how you like your penis.

    Really since sex has little to do with gaming aside from the occaisional eye candy, it's kind of strange that there would even be grounds for a gay subculture here. I mean, if you play games, you're one of the pack, right?

    Well, there's girl gamers. There's gay literature, and gay films. I don't see why you couldn't potentially have a gay subculture there.
