@mc_hify: I've played a few of Love's games, and actually was in touch with her about doing grad school level research on Analogue: A Hate Story (appropriation of Korean culture, Korean indie scene online, etc.) Digital: A Love Story was the best game I played last year, hands down. I shared Don't Take it Personally with this housemate a while ago and she enjoyed it quite a bit.
@endaround This outfit has a ton of stuff! I don't think $20 is an unreasonable price for a thoughtfully made visual novel-ish game; are they worth the price of admission? My frame of reference is unfortunately Christine Love's stuff, most of which is free.
Also, I guess it's encouraging that this conversation could stay somewhat on the rails over time. I agree that the lady in question is pretty damn picky about what she'll play, and that this is probably a wasted effort. If anything, it's nice to see a discussion of how people or various gender and sexual identities have been represented in our collective hobby. That's the whole point of this site, isn't it? A compendium of all video game knowledge?
