Probably common knowledge among video game fans, but the Mario franchise at least has a trans character - Birdo, originally described thusly in the Super Mario Bros. 2 manual: "He thinks he is a girl and he spits eggs from his mouth. He'd rather be called 'Birdetta.'"

Not the most accurate or sensitive description of transgenderdrism but perfectly unambiguous.

Personally can't wait to check out GTA's new episode, and seeing how the multi-player option will relate to this new addition like the previous episode.

BTW a lil random video game trivia, SEGA's "Streets of Rage 3" had a very gay playable boss character named Ash (sporting leather chaps, boots, ect..) however he was only included in the Japan version and taken out of the US version due to obvious reasons.

Obvious reasons like “Americans are children”?

The niche genre of "interactive fiction" (think text adventure games) has had playable homosexual, transgender, etc. characters for years if not decades.

Quest

My thoughts exactly Jim!
