RE: 10 video games that made my life gayer

Well, it seems I've stumped a few of you with the "10 video games that made my life gayer" series that I started yesterday. (Here's the first one and here's the second.) Specifically, my use of the word gayer seems to have stumped a few of you. Sorry about that.

I probably should have started the first post in the series with this disclaimer: "In this post, and in all subsequent '10 video games that made my life gayer' posts, gayer will be used in the old-fashioned sense, as in happier or merrier."

Actually, I considered doing just that early on, but it seemed so awkward; I'd much rather get right to the meat of the post. That said, I think I'll put the above-mentioned disclaimer at the end of each of these posts from now on.

(By the way, as I mentioned in a recent comment, I'd definitely be up for writing a few posts about video games that literally made me gayer--i.e., more homosexual--but I'm not entirely sure at this point which games would be included in such a series.)

Muscle March. That definitely made MY life gayer. Hybrid Heaven started with a steamy male shower scene that made my life gayer, too.

Yes, I think I can see what you mean with Muscle March, Justin... :)

I am a gay artist who uses my imagery (GI Joe and Ken in relationships) to make America more Queer!

Hmmm, very interesting, John! Hopefully some of the readers here will check out your site and photos.

Oh, and thanks for the comment!
