* Are Gay Video Games Coming?

Gamespot's got an interesting article up today - an examination of gay themes in video games.
Even more overtly gay are so-called "yaoi" titles, which are dating simulators featuring graphic relations between male characters. "Yaoi" is actually an acronym, standing for yama-nashi (without climax), ochi-nashi (without a conclusion), and imi-nashi (without content). Gainax, famed creators of the ever-popular Evangelion series, is notorious for pimping out its stars for use in such games. While these are usually less explicit than competing, lower-budget yaoi games, they are extremely popular in Japan, particularly among young, female audiences.
After being at A-Kon this year and seeing the rush of females lining up to attend "Yaoi Fest"... I can believe that one.
