More than fine. Ideal.

In fact, I have a hard time understanding the problem here.

So yes I find males playing females a little off. Although I could understand a male playing a female in a scam situation to play up the poor helpless female used to gain trust and bring out the chivalrous nature of males to help females - good example "EvE".

I used to play Conquer online a long time ago  a guy pretended to be a girl for more then 6 months and got many trust of the top players in the server and stole items worth more then 6000 thousand euro  (no joke) he stole a couple of +12 sets and everyone that played that game can tell you how much money you had to pay for that since it was impossible to get trough gameplay.

After many reports the guy got banned and since it is one of the most corupted companies he was able to get the trust again of one of the guys he scammed wich made him send TQ digital a email to get the scammers acount unbanned (he believed he would get the items back)

TQ unbanned him and closed the case after that email and he had acces to the gear again and he sold the gear for real money.

 

He made good friends with guys in the server and then when they all were close he said he was found having breast cancer and then one thing of another he asked if he could loan someones gear (since they were better) to do arena and did the same with other people that didnt know he already loaned someone elses gear.

 

This guy is ofcouse a asshole but i give him credit for is mind control. + the guys he scammed were in a guild that were my biggest enemies and i ended up having the strongest guild in the server.

If thats what you got from that post you need to either reread it or learn to read.

Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"

Wow, that's really horrible. I never would think of such a thing. Guess I am just naive at how rotten some people actually are. :(

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

edit:

Joking aside, your average straight guy isn't playing a female toon because he thinks of it as his gf. The #2 post answers the question. If a player is going to be spending hours and hours looking at a toon, why wouldn't they want to look at a toon that they enjoy looking at?

I'll be honest here and say that I can't take females performing feats of strength seriously. These tank top clad, 100 lbs heroines knocking out full grown men in movies and on television are just a farce; visual accessories.

Of course I grew up in an era where Schwarzenegger, Hogan, He-Man & Optimus Prime were the masculine idols of the day.

Bingo.  Right on target.  I make both types of characters but I lean toward female toons because I like having attractive characters and I don't find men attractive.  I don't play a character like it's a part of me, at least not in physical appearance.  But then, I don't roleplay my characters either.  When I do that, that's when I choose a male toon that represents me in some way.  A better way to look at it is my dream car.  I don't pick giant bulky monster trucks (although they can be cool) I would pick a sleek, sexy ultra fast sports car like an Aston Martin Vanquish.  When it comes to aesthetics I'm going to pick what I like to look at.  It has nothing to do with wanting any "sexual" attraction but just wanting something I find beautiful.  Hope that makes sense.

If i roll a male of female character, it mostly is because of the casting or fighting animations. For example a human female paladin has better healing animations & and a male undead warlock had better caster animations. And for a hunter night elf females look better because, the male was dancing around while standing still. And so on, this has always been the issue for me in games.

And the thing that is important. The sex that has better looking versions of the armor sets, also get my first pick.

its a simple as that.

I got so much trouble on my mind Refuse to lose.

3/27/12 8:17:22 AM#52

Excellent topic as always

I do play a lot of female characters. Sometimes its awkward because i love to roleplay as well. And when it comes to sexuality related stuff - it can get pretty bad, because honestly flirting with guys is not my cup of tea.

So i try to limit my female characters to non-roleplay games/guilds.

 

So why do i do it?

My motivation is totally different than yours.

 

When I create a character its like i am trying to make new super cool comic hero.

My characters are stars of my story. Main actors of the game.

They are not me, neither they have any relation to me.

 

So why girls ?

Because i love female comic/fantasy characters. They could be so kick ass cool.

The combination of sexyness , frality but on other hand deadly and dangerous.

Tank Girl , Beatrix Kiddo , Nikita ...

 

One more note.

As you , I am visual designer. And I do tend to choose model that has better design&animation.

Very often female models are better.

 

So - my main requirement -

Kicking ass and looking cool while you do it !

I always assumed about 50% of all forum users in a typical forum only reply to the topic title anyway. XD

Its simple.....whose rear end do you want to have in your face for the next 50 levels......I find it weird that more men don't play female chars since there is no diference statistically.....Then its all about how deep you want to go....I'd never RP as a female character....so ...yeah

Like my buddy always says: " You get treated more fair in games and occasionally you get free stuff and help more easily, than male characters."

Personally, I never could play with female characters. In most games (mmorpgs) they just look like half-naked, trashy whores and brainless bimbos, not cool warriors or cunning thieves like the male characters do. Tabula Rasa was the only exeption, there even the gals had proper battlearmors - not just armor strips hiding the groins and nipples.

Now let me say ahead, I always respect everyone's decision what to play in a MMO. It is just a feeling. Let me explain. Now sure, as gay guy, I do not have the appeal to "see a girl's bum" while I play. But here is the thing. When I create MMO characters, I NEVER make "my idea man". And boy, I tried. Several times in MMOs I create a male character that looked as my "ideal looking man", and it SPOOKED THE HELL OUTTA ME. I can't even say why. But the idea to play a char that looks like my ideal man, was... wrong. It was something so outside anything I could identify or accpet. I always felt it was just wrong and spooky, to have some "cute puppet", some "love doll" or whatever. It felt just freaky. And that is why I shudder at the thought, no matter if you play same gender or opposite gender: this idea to create a character as "your ideal looking girl/guy" is what just feels so spooking me off.

For me, a character I play must represent something of *me*, some part of myself externalized. (Is that a word?) For instance, I loved my EQ2 Sarnath and my Fae Ranger. Both represented character traits of me. Both where a part of me, in a way I could not describe. Or my dark skinned characters I make in most MMOs as main. He is me, for reasons I can not explain. But he is FAR from the type of guy I want. I mean, I know some people would even play any random char because they don't care at all. But when you play a char so many hours as you do in a MMO, does it not evoke *some* feeling within you?

And that is what I don't get, how can you play a char months or even years which is your "love interest"? That sounds just so... bizarre. So it gives me more than a little doubt in players who do this. I know from experience with female gamers who talked to me, that female chars are usually treated better. If they enter older MMOs, they are WAY more likely to get help, money and other stuff. And that, shall we say, ulterior motive is what I also kind of suspect. Like they know, ok with a girl char people will be more helpful and nice. Which is the case. Female chars DO get more help.

 

So what do you think about it? And to you guys who play girls, how do you feel doing that? I wonder.

Well, i play male and female chars. Normally i choose base on class, race, gear looking, animations, etc.

I will never forget when once i create a mystic human male char in L2 and my little daughter make fun of me that my char runs like a girl.... and she was right, i delete and create a diferent one.

 

For me, some classes and/or some races look cooler on female or male, so in any game i play allways have both across all my chars.

I will never understand why is so weird a male create a female or a female create a male char, dont see nothing wrong in that, really.

To each his own, but it would be near impossible for me to role-play a female toon.  I always play a male and have never really understood how a man can roleplay a woman. 

Reading some of the responses, I think I understand a little better why some do it (helps them feel more compassion for their toon, etc and of course some just cannot get enough of looking at the female avatar), but I would never do it myself.

I have tried it before because my daughter wanted to create a "pretty elf lady", but quickly deleted.

I know there are also some who do it because they feel they get more groups, social chat, etc, but I think that is just a fraud and couldnt do that either.

Hm, ok that certainly is an enlightning explanation. But it also seems to imply that most MMO developers fail to make convincing male character models for a number of gamers.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

my 1st mmo char was a guy but after that one I went all females -- I guess eye candy is only good reason i can give

even on these forums im listed as my main character from everquest  (a game i no longer play)

 

if anyone hits on me or asks me - I tell them I'm a guy ;)
