Queer-inclusive projects including Assassin's Creed, Elder Scrolls and Guild Wars nominated for GLAAD's first every games award

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation will recognise video games in its annual media awards for the first time in 30 years.

GLAAD’s first Outstanding Video Game award has lined up five games it claims are noteworthy for queer inclusion.

That list is comprised of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, Pillars of Eternity: Deadfire and The Sims Mobile.

Most, if not all of these games have been named for including prominent queer characters or relationships. Full descriptions of why each nomination was chosen can be found on the GLAAD blog.
