* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', there are a number of characters the player can propose to and marry. None of the prospective loves take [[EveryoneIsBi gender]] or [[AnythingThatMoves race]] into account. However, while there's a perk that allows you to get better prices from a merchant of the other gender, there's no way to seduce merchants of the same gender as your character, even if you have a same-gender partner.

* ''Franchise/HarvestMoon: Korobokkuru Station For Girls'' had a thinly-veiled Gay Option, allowing you to use a [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship "Best Friends Ceremony"]] to get one of the special wives from the male version to move in with you and eventually bring you a baby, as if they were a husband. This was removed for the US version, ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS Cute'' -- more obnoxiously, Creator/{{Natsume}} refused to confirm they removed it, and they left in all the related scenes up to actually "proposing", so it's taken hours of work by dedicated players to, in fact, confirm it's not in there. Fans were understandably annoyed.

For games where homosexuality is not just an option but the game itself is themed on it, see the video game sections of YuriGenre (for lesbians) and YaoiGenre (for gay males). This ''may'' or ''may not'' overlap with OptionalSexualEncounter, since a game won't always go that far.

* In ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'', Tiefling bard Haer'Dalis can make use of a male Drow sex slave; WordOfGod says the team just figured "he'd be up for anything". The Enhanced Edition added two gay options -- a bisexual male half-orc blackguard, and a homosexual female human vampire thief. Unfortunately, [[KarmaMeter a good protagonist]] still lacks a gay option, since both of those are quite evil.

** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' introduces the Confirmed Bachelor and Cherchez la Femme perks, homosexual counterparts to Lady Killer and Black Widow, as well as gay (Arcade Gannon) and lesbian (Veronica Santangelo) companion characters. In fact, homosexual males have the most sexually implicit or explicit interactions in the game, as in addition to their own perk-locked content, just about every character that a "heterosexually active" (Black Widow perk-equipped) female PC can get is also available to a homosexual male PC.

* ''Artificial Academy'' by Illusion allows you to have entire classes filled with school girl lesbians or school boy homosexuals, it's all up to the player and whether the character was set to homo/bi in the Maker.

* ''SteambotChronicles'' had an odd version of this. There were three female characters that could be romanced. During the dates with them, the player could ''inform'' the women that they were interested in their male friends, but could not actually date another male character.

* Rather late in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}} Innocent Sin'' and after many revelations to all involved, the party eventually corners Tatsuya and asks him bluntly who he's in love with. He has the choice of picking any of the four. The male option (Jun) makes sense compared to [[ClingyJealousGirl Lisa]] and [[CoolBigSis Maya]].

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' allows a male Ryder to romance Gil or Reyes, or a female Ryder to romance Peebee, Vetra or Suvi. The male/male romance options sparked controversy after release however due to neither of the two (and there's only two) options being squadmates (unlike in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', which had Kaidan), unlike every other orientation which receives at least two squadmate romances.

** ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'' subverts this. Same-gender Miis cannot date or marry, but it's possible to create Miis that look like females but are assigned male, and vice versa, to make it look like a same-gender couple. The game doesn't stop you from dressing each Mii in opposite-gender clothing.
