Video games act as an escape for many people. While everyone has a different experience in the gaming community, the LGBTQ+ population has also had a unique experience. My team asked gamers who identify as LGBTQ+ about their experiences in the gaming world to determine how inclusive the online gaming community is or isn’t.
Here’s what we found:
- According to almost 1 in 2 LGBTQ+ gamers, Animal Crossing ranks as having the most supportive gaming community The most supportive community for LGBTQ+ gamers was Animal Crossing, where 49% viewed it as supportive – the second-most supportive game was Call of Duty (27%), followed by Minecraft (26%)
- If a game contains a queer storyline, 81% of LGBTQ+ gamers report being more likely to buy it
- 41% of LGBTQ+ gamers avoid certain games and communities due to harassment that occurs within them
- The Legend of Zelda ranks as the least supportive gaming community with only 18% of LGBTQ+ gamers thinking it is supportive
