Andy's Top 10 LGBTQ+ Friendly and Inclusive Games for PlayStation

Andy's Top 10 LGBTQ+ Friendly and Inclusive Games for PlayStation

Life, Love and TravelJeremy and Andy

Jeremy & Andy are two thirds of ‘Two Guys & A Tortoise’. They were married in 2018 and shortly thereafter embarked on a new adventure together, with their shelled companion in tow, promoting visibility through sharing their daily lives and travels on social media and creating a safe space for LGB...

'I love gaming. Since I first got a PlayStation One back in 1995, I was obsessed. And I’ve never lost that obsession. And since that first console power up, I’ve been on the same journey as many others like me. I’ve lost myself in many stories, battled hundreds of villains, built and lost countless in-game friendships, travelled to so many beautiful worlds and experienced real gut-wrenching emotions.'

Make sure you soak in this curation from @twoguysandatortoise's Andy who has written about the best LGBTQ+ inclusive Playstation 4 and 5 games on offer, as well as all the amazing ways you can lose yourself in new worlds to explore, characters to meet and destinies to fulfil. 


'Modern gaming has come so far since the days of joysticks and two red buttons. With the evolution of gaming, has come the evolution of what we’re playing and what we’re looking for in our games. Diversity and inclusion are concepts that we care about when we choose what to play, and now, more than ever, you have the chance to see yourself in some form through the characters you play.' 


'So with that, I wanted to share my top 10 inclusive games! I should say though, there are no doubt countless others – but I wanted to share those I’ve played, really rate, and why.'


We all deserve to see ourselves on screen and inclusive games are one of the most exciting ways to truly find yourself, explore who you are or just destroy dragons, witches and any other perils that await you. All Andy's picks are easily purchasable through sites like Amazon and eBay!

Jeremy and Andy's mybest Summary

Gaming is so different now compared to when I got my first PlayStation. Not only are you able to lose yourself in a game now, but you’re seeing more and more representations of different walks of life and even representation of ourselves. 


Unfortunately, there are still some games where stereotypes are a key theme – even much loved, iconic games like Mario where the lead is a white man, trying to rescue a princess who is incapable of saving herself, or even saving Mario, apparently.


Now I love Mario, but I love the direction a lot of developers are heading to be more inclusive, more diverse, more culturally sensitive and more representative of those that are playing the games. This list is just 10 games I have played that I think have something to offer other gamers – whether male, female, black, white, of colour, non-binary, gay, straight or any other colour of the rainbow.
