Subversion of Typical Heteronormative and Hypermasculine Gameplay Mechanics and Themes in Video Games

Hypermasculinity and heteronormative video game narratives have become a problematic symbol of old world thinking. How are independent and triple-A titles subverting these themes with representations of alternative lifestyles or neutral gendered stories, and how do they threaten hypermasculine safe spaces? My research will look at these topics with particular reference to the horror series Outlast.
