Improving the inclusion of trans and gender diverse people in video games through character customization

Improving the inclusion of trans and gender diverse people in video games through character customization

Samenvatting

The objective of this research paper is to identify how the experience of character customization can be improved for trans and gender diverse individuals. Diversity and inclusion has become an important topic in today 's digital games. Though, games containing character customization often only offer stereotypical ‘male’ and ‘female’ options, with little room for gender-affirming customization choices. With character customization being also a tool for trans and gender diverse people to discover and express themselves, this paper aims to identify the features that are currently amiss for this group of people to feel included. The surveys show that respondents need more diverse body types, including trans body options, as well as non-gender locked cosmetic features. Special remarks were made on gender-inclusive language and pronoun choices.
