This session of tweeting n’ playing The Last of Us was really enjoyable – partly because Beardy Dude (AKA Joel) finally got a weapon he could really take the fight to the zombies with but mainly because of the little details of the game that make it so much more than just a kill-the-zombies slugfest.
Namely, the church building and Bill’s (and Ellie’s) sexuality. My tweet discussion about which church/denomination the church building belongs to is frivolous, really, but discovering Bill’s sexuality (and Ellie’s, although this happened when I watched John of thejhnfiles play the game) meant a lot to me personally because representation is important.
As I say in one tweet, it doesn’t need to be obvious and in your face, for me, it just being there is enough.
