And if you're including optional homosexuality, that means other games like Fire Emblem Fates and Mass Effect count, right?

does stardew valley count


i should say canonically gay, in which case, no, those don't count, as homosexual relations are just one possible option

the protags of those games are more like stand-ins for the player

Does it have to be the "main" character, such as the player character?
If not, both Mass Effect and Dragon Age do.

Other than that, you right, can't think of much

Does Legend of Korra count? It's not confirmed within the game, but the character herself is canonically bi.

Magyarorszag

it's a licensed game that apparently makes no indication as to her sexuality in game, but it is true that she's bi in the animated series

hmm

i'm not sure whether it should count tbh lol, but maybe

still, that may be the only example, and even then it's a real stretch

the ballad of gay tony


that one did come to mind but tony isn't the protagonist lol

the protagonist is his bodyguard, who as far as anyone knows is hetero

bluaki

Has there been any official word on the sexual orientation of MGS characters? Are they supposed to be "straight"?

Magyarorszag

well, as far as protagonists go, raiden has a wife and child, and snake never really demonstrates any romantic interests period afaik
