    Every one except "realistically depicted my lived experience."

    The way transpeople are treated in the gaming community and industry at large? That's not going to happen anytime soon, away from maybe a few independent projects, and those will be buried in feculent reviews about how gross we are and we're brainwashing the children or whatever.

    And since I KNOW that even if someone tries to make a big project about being trans, and they even involve us in the process, it's going to be filtered through a bunch of rich old white dudes anyway, who are going to ruin it either by throwing in a bunch of bullshit that doesn't belong to expand appeal, or by depicting us as mostly unstable and at least partially duplicitous, if not outright dishonest and disturbed.

    I remember back in 2016 when Uncharted 4 got Survival Mode. If I remember correctly, it was in December of that year. That is when I met my now partner.

    I used to spend hours every day watching my brother play Grand Theft Auto and Crash Team Racing. It’s also how I learned what a slapper was. I’ve spent hours watching my cousin play CTR too. When lockdown started my sister and I both got Animal Crossing and despite being in different countries visited each other’s island. She hasn’t played in over a year. I like to watch people play the games I have on YouTube and depending on the game play along with them. Those videos are great to fall asleep to. I can spend several hours straight playing my switch.
