One remarkable pass
GLAAD, one of the most renowned LGBT organizations worldwide, hosts its 1990 GLAAD Media Annual Awards. Recognizing the efforts of LGBT people in various media, including films, television, art, theater, music and writing. Last fall, announced that video games will be recognized by the organization for the first time, creating the category of exclusive video game award. Today, these nominations were announced – along with his television and film categories without Bohemian Rhapsody – and was missing a certain title from the band.
The Assassin's Creed: Odyssey (Ubisoft)
All the wonderful titles, but do you notice any omission? I will certainly do so. This is a small game called The Missing: J.J. McFIld and the island of memories . Chris Mose gave him 7.0. We nominated him for Best PC Game by 201
I apologize for spoilers but we are talking about them the only way to fully illustrate how confusing it is. In The Missing you play as the title J.J. looking for a lost friend, Emily. When a lightning strikes her, J.J. acquires the ability to cause self-harm, almost always recovering. The central mechanic of the gameplay is J.J. I understand how to destroy her body in ways that allow her to solve the various puzzles that the island has.
What you learn from history is that the dark nature of the game makes sense. J.J. is, or at least feels it is through lightning, gay trans-woman and her family do not accept that. After teasing children at school and pressure to be "normal" at home, J.J. Attempts to commit suicide and the island of memories turn out to be the manifestation of all the things she has experienced, trying to understand – and accept – who she is.
Japan is not exactly famous for making video games that they are painting. Translating people in positive light to get this captivating nuclear puzzle-platformer from Swery last year was unexpected and undoubtedly deserves a GLAAD nomination. Hell, he deserves to win the introductory prize for the way he presents tough questions in the LGBTQ community with respect and care. Such games do not appear often to us, the LGBTQ gamers, but in order not to be recognized by this organization, my mouth remains a rotten taste.
