You know what's really spooky?  Real-life humans creating characters that are elves, dwarves, or various anthropomorphic animals.

More seriously, if a guy creates a female character so he can ogle it, then yeah, that's creepy.  But to just play the game?  What about single-player games with only one character?  If it's a female character, does that mean guys shouldn't play the game?  What if you find out after playing the game for a while, as happened in Metroid?

Games that create female avatars that wear skimpy clothing and have massive boobs are made for the guys.

What kind of girl says 'Yeah !, I wanna be a whore with a gun !'

So... Tomb Raider was as popular as it was because they were going after the gay male demographic? That makes so much sense! /sarcasm

I play for just the opposite reasons. I see "me" all day long and every time I look in the mirror. When I play a "Fantasy" game I want to be just about as far away from being "me" as possible. Sometimes that is a big ugly neanderthal... Sometimes its a dainty little female... but it's never "me". I see any "Fantasy" game as a chance to get away from being "me" for a little while.

I think it's creepy. But I do enjoy calling a man with a deep voice in vent by their female character's name and their resultant frustration at being called Jenny.

You'd actually be surprised. I've gamed with more than a few females who made some racey avatars.

This thread grew fast...

Regardless, my two cents.

When making a character in MMOs or other RPGs, I do so on the basis of constructing a personality around the character type.  The gender is determined primarily by my opinion of which would fit the character, with a secondary concern for aesthetics. (one game for instance had a stance for females wielding pistols that made me wince in pain every time I saw it, and I refuse to play characters that have costumes that a hooker wouldn't be willing to wear on the street)

Yes, I identify with the character I play, yes I tend to see a little bit of myself in them, but they are not me, nor even truly an extension of myself. Neither do I see the character as a love interest/freind/companion/etc. A kindred spirit might be the best term.

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

I am  straight guy and mostly pick to play a female character. Some of the reasons the OP have stated but there is a lot more to it.

In RPG's I will do the same take ME1,2,3 for example my first choice was to make a female Shepard and run with it through the series. I do have a male Shepard but I will never play that character as much. I find male leads or characters in MMO to be boring and bland.

Female characters in MMO's are often treated better by the community.

Get better looking items and armour

I like to write back stories to the characters I play and I find it easier to write for female leads than male ones. The male ones tend to up being 2 dimensional and brainless.  With a female I can explore the character in much more depth.

If you play a female character in a MMO random people will just give you stuff they dont need usualy the higher level ones.

In Eve Online I play a male as my main the reason is when it was released I couldn't get the female look right how I wanted it to be. And even now we all know that 90% of the female avatars in the game are male in real life so everyone is a target. I do have a female industry pilot as well though and people often comment on how she looks. I just seem to be able to make better looking females than male. See for yourself.

To be honest Who cares if a guy plays a female character in a video game. Don't you have anything better to worry about then to worry what someone does in a video game? How old are you 5?

I am male and I primarily play female characters. I do it because so many games have male characters that it is just fun to play as something different when given the chance. Plus, I do fall into the ass argument and the better looking argument.

 

Frankly, games are entertainment and I would rather be entertained by playing a game starring Lara Croft than Nathan Drake.  Lets face it, as a straight man, I like women in all forms. 

That said, when there are romance options my female characters are always lesbians (Mass Effect, Skyrim, Dragon Age, etc) as I am not interested in men in the least.  So in a way my straight male sexual preference still gets passed on to female avatars. 

Usually, I will also have male characters in games with romances since most games don't allow lesbians (SWTOR) :( .

I don't get these "I don't like it when other people don't choose the characters gender according to their real one."

 

Why does the gender of a random person on the internet matter to you? Whether I'm female or male, what business is it of yours? I never got that. Except if some horny teens fap to every pixel-boob (or whatever they're into) they see, and don't like the thought of doing that to someone who is of the gender that's not preferred. Now, aside from me thinking that using MMORPGs for cybersex is totally out of place, even then it wouldn't matter, because it's just on the internet. You won't see or meet that person in real life. Who cares what that person looks like, or the age, or gender? And if you DO plan to meet random strangers from MMORPGs, and use it as a weird type of dating service: then that's simply out of place too. It's not meant to be that. People just want to game. Stop trying to have sex with them.

I mean: what happens when you are a guy, and you read a book or watch a movie, where the main protagonist is female? As you watch the movie or read the book, your mind will automatically try to put you into that persons point of view. And now you are suddenly a perv? Or gay or whatever? How stupid is that? If you'd have the power, would you enforce a law, saying "people shall not read books where the main character is of a different gender than the reader"?

I choose the gender of the character same as that characters hairstyle or body size or skin color or whatever: it depends on my mood, and I like variety. I play a male character in one game, I play a female one in another. I play black characters, white characters, asian characters, characters fitting to the current ideals of beauty, and others which might seem very ugly (though sadly that's rarely possible on MMORPGs). Why should I care? "They're a part of me" is not making any sense. As you play the game, you will automatically immerse with it, no matter that characters looks. If the characters gender puts you off, then you are unsure of your gender (oh god, what will the other people think when they find out? Will they think I'm gay? Or hetero? Or whatever? I'm so scared!), or you simply live in the middle ages and haven't arrived in the present.

People who are "spooked off" by this are simply... narrow minded. Immature. Intolerant. Unsure of themselves. Not realizing when something is a game and when it ain't. They're imprisoned by their limited way of seeing things. I don't want to insult you, but it's simply plain stupid.

Sadly, I don't care about those people. As long as it's just all in their head, and they're just imprisoning themselves mentally, I don't give a crap. Just don't try to extend your narrow minded view on others.

 

In addition, while I'm really in the game, I simply forget that characters gender. I don't pay attention to that. When I see a rocket flying in my direction, then I will think "crap, a rocket" and try to dodge. I won't think "my character is female, crap a rocket, female, I'll try to dodge, stupid female character".

 

People who care about who plays a character with what gender are simply insecure.

No intelligent mature person who is sure of himself/herself would ever be annoyed by that. If I play a female character named "Bentate" or something, and you call me that in voice chat, then I'm not the slightest annoyed. People who'd try to tease me with that are just immature. It's like running around a person in real life, shouting "nanananana you wear a purple t-shirt! nanananana it's a womans color! lalalalalalalala! you are a woman hahahahaha!". I'd not be annoyed by them saying that, I'd just be grossed out by their stupidity.

It's been a while since we've had this topic here. I suppose it was time to start it again.

I believe there are two different type of gamers (this is just a broad brush here). One sees their character as an extension of themselves. I suspect the OP is in this category. The other just views their character as a video game character. So if you see your character as representing yourself then I can see it being uncomfortable to play something you are not (guy playing a girl). While the second type of gamer just doesn't care and usually will pick the character that is most pleasing to their eye.

     When I first started playing MMOs in early 2000, I only rolled males also.....It bothered me at first too when I found out a female character was a male IRL, but then after enough time passed I got used to it and it really didnt matter anymore...... Also there are quite a few games now (mainly some f2ps) where the classes are gender locked and if yo uwant to play a certain class you have to have a female character.....
