Changes: LGBT themes in video games)[edit]

There should be a list of what is the exact themes that LGBT characters depict. Tabs should be renamed and reorganized so that there wouldn’t be a confusion. Should add more examples of video game companies and their policies. Change the section title “ Gay characters in adventures” to avoid confusion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.231.199.170 (talk) 04:54, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Sections 3.1 (Company Policies) - 3.2 (Entertainment Software Rating Board [ESRB])[edit]

Section 3.1.1 (Nintendo) -Many claims are not sourced -Removed phrase "per se" within last paragraph to eliminate slightly biased language

Section 3.1.1 -Many claims are not sourced

Section 3.2 -Some claims are not sourced

While these sections quite a bit in these sections, there is still the issue that many of these claims are not backed by sources, and some areas contained slightly biased language. (Xjnguyen5x (talk) 04:49, 16 December 2016 (UTC))

Sections 3.3 (Asian Games) - 4.1 (Criticism)[edit]

All sections looked at require citations throughout. Many claims made that seem to be from a basis of personal experience or belief; not valid enough. Section 3.3 - Makes many claims that are not backed up by sources. -Wording of article sounds a tad biased, but I am looking into how to edit such language out. - I do not understand the link to "gay male" and "gay female". Perhaps adjust? - Edited basic grammar issues

Section 4 - direct quotations without a citation - Most information in this section sounds like it comes from a basis of personal experience instead of cited information, especially with the statements about the Sims games

Section 4.1 - mentions different studies done on the topic but continues to offer no citations - potentially add more specific examples of how to increase LGBTQ content in video games

Really awesome overall, just needs A LOT more citation and careful, unbiased language. 19:51, 13 December 2016 (UTC)Jannacorsetti (talk)

@Jannacorsetti: I had to revert your changes, because it appears you did a copy and paste of content that removed most of the references and pasted the output of templates into the article directly. Both of the sections you mention above as lacking citations have them, and in fact they were removed by your edit. -- ferret (talk) 20:11, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Sections 1.1 (Comical gender confusion) - 1.2 (Transgender characters in video games)[edit]

  • Some citations needed to back-up claims in Section 1.1 (Comical gender confusion), such as the point about the "underlying assumption".
  • 1.1: Changed the word "handling" to "introducing" to avoid potentially uncomfortable language.
  • 1.2: Provided a Wikilink for "indeterminate" (links to "undefined").
  • 1.2: Provided a Wikilink for "transphobic".

These sections provide a lot of great, informational points and examples of transgender characters and is overall very interesting.
