Many role-playing video games (RPVGs) force players to choose between male and female body types when creating characters. This decision-making excludes members of the LGBTQIA+ community who do not fit into a binary gender system. I hope to bring awareness to the lack of transfriendly RPVGs in the hopes that transgender, non-binary, and other gender non-conforming folks will be able to enjoy role-playing video games in the same manner as their cisgender counterparts.
