Storyline

Diverse queer themes in game story lines and characters are an anomaly in the mainstream video game industry, and LGBTQ gamers have a higher chance of being mistreated in social games. Gaming In Color explores how the community culture is shifting and the industry is diversifying, helping with queer visibility and acceptance of an LGBTQ presence. Almost every gamer will relate to the concept of seeking solace in a video game. Hope for sanctuary guides their escape into a virtual universe where they can be anything they want to be. For many, however, choosing to be true to themselves becomes an open invitation for hatred. This multiplies for those who are marginalized people, including people of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. Toxic cultures that breed violence and vitriol hide behind a industry that undervalues the innovation of its audience. GAMING IN COLOR crusades for anyone who believes that the pixelated world can be a better place for everyone, no matter who ... Written by Anonymous

A documentary highlighting the way the gaming world is and should be changing to reflect those who play.
26 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

The gaming community is diverse as it is vast...from the casual gamer, to the hardcore, rocking the headset until the wee hours, there are gamers from all walks of life. Gaming in Color is one of those films that not only demonstrates just how diverse the community is, but also how the gaming industry is beginning to understand that as well. Gone are the days where gaming was a "niche" and sometimes frowned upon subculture.

This is just the beginning...and if you enjoy a documentary that tells it like it is, like video games and want to get a good idea of just how diverse the gaming world is...then this is worth watching. From clips of well-known video games, to candid interviews with industry and gamers, Gaming in Color takes the controller out of the hands of the basement brat, and puts it into everyone else's.
