Weeklings! : Great Gay Moments in Classic Video Games (VIDEO)

Wreck-It Ralph features the vocal talents of three people I love (Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer), but it's an important movie for another reason: It celebrates video game history. The new film features plenty of old game characters, including Pac-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, the cast of Street Fighter II, Q*bert and many others. Sounds like fun to me -- but is there anything gay about it? In this edition of Weeklings!, I uncover the gay history of video games you may not even know about. Get your joysticks ready, because you're about to learn a whole lot more about the secret gayness of Mario, Luigi, Lara Croft and even Halo.
