First I have to say that for some reason "spook me off" just sounds odd. I know it's probably gramatically correct, maybe, but it is peculiar sounding.

 

I do not play Fem characters in SW:Tor or single player games that offer romances (NwN2, DA, DA2, ME series, etc). Call it odd but I have no interest in seeing girl on girl in game, and I don't have interest in playing a fem while romancing a male. Yes I can bypass the romance options but I enjoy experiencing/accomplishing as much as possible in game.

 

I do however play Fem characters in other MMO's, and I'll admit I generally have 2 fem to 1 male characters on my account(s). Just the way it's been... Why do I do it? Because it's not reality, I don't have to play my gender. Because overall, it seems players are more friendly to a fem avatar and willing to help. Just have to be honest.

i've picked the female characters in games when given the option for as long as i can remember. blaze in streets of rage, cammy in SF2, peach in mario 2, even in pokemon i played a girl. nowadays, i picked evie in vindictus, my character in rift is a dwarf girl, and my main two characters in lotro are a hobbit lass and a woman.

 

i did this as a kid because i liked to pick things that my friends, and my brother wouldn't pick. when i was a kid, you weren't allowed to have the same favorite character as someone else. it was the fucking rule. as anyone on the planet would guess, no young boy wants to pick the girl, so it was always a safe bet that i'd never have to argue over who gets to play my favorite characters. it kinda stuck with me over the years, so now i just play girls in every game by habit, unless there are dwarves available. bonus for female dwarves.

 

also i enjoyed the hell out of seducing alistair with my creepy-looking elf girl in dragon age.

Here is my simple thought process:

I create whatever I want to look at and whatever looks like it fits with my idea for the character. Be it male or female, doesnt matter.

Games are like stories.  I do not feel weird reading a story that is from a girls perspective.  Now if you are trying to convince others that IRL you are a girl when you are not that is different.  You might have some gender identity issues.

Does this forum ever have new threads ?

Why exactly do I have to justify what I play in the first place ? The game gives me the option, I like the option, so I choose it. You disagree ? Hu, too bad, but thats really exclusively your problem, not mine at all.

I dont have to justify why I play a mage and I dont have to justify why I play a darkelf. So why do I have to justify it if I consider it cooler if my darkelf mage is female ?!?

This whole subject is pretty much a necro post of a necro post its so old.. its been done to death so many times, and about the only thing thats come out of it is that there are some very fragile people out there who are clearly not in touch with their own sexuality to a degree they feel threatened by those who are.

Its just a bit of a mind **** for some people.  Like myself.  Always felt like a form of digital cross dressing to me.  Have I taken it far too seriously?  Yes I have.  Sorry about that. 

 

" Oh look, she's a looker!  Oh....you're a guy.  Eek.  "   I mean at least when there's a woman behind that....woman.....even if she's overweight and horrendous looking, there's a mind of a girl inside that girl.  When its the mind of a guy inside that female form I have to admit it ooks me out.   And yes, it does cause some level of confusion.  Not just for me,but for everyone and dont say it doesnt. 

 

Playing as a female how many times have you had to tell your fellow players, " Im a guy.  No really, Im a guy. " and everyone goes, " Oh....." and typically every new person you meet even though we all know thousands or millions of guys play as females, still thinks for some reason you are a real female sitting at her PC. 

 

And with the too few gals that play mmorpgs, this makes them nearly impossible to identify.  Unless you get to know them well, which I have, and even saw real life pictures of them, but then, are those really real?  You can never be sure.  Its maddening.   Voice chat helps tons in those cases.  But regardless, guys playing as chicks just seems awkward to everyone around them.  Oh your friends will get used to it.  AFTER the awkwardness wears off. 

 

And dont pretend for a minute that its never happened because you know it has, as you say you've played as a female.  Yea, there's a reason for those awkward reactions.

Err -- Necro thread ? This thread was started Mar 27 ... 8 days ago.

And my character choices have nothing to do with my sexuality. I simply create characters I LIKE. And I happen to like women. I also put a lot of other work into my characters, like finding a good name for them (always very important to me), make them cool looking (also very important to me, if a character isnt cool I just cant enjoy playing them) and trying to find the best skilling for them (I am a powergamer).

Probably referring to the fact that it comes up every couple of months, the way popular topics tend to do on active forums with a big influx of new members :) 

To answer the OP myself: Unless there's something exclusive to male chars (such as romance options in ME / DA), I always play a female char in video games. 

Part of it is the eye-candy, part of it is the fact that I can connect better with a female char than a male one (and yes, I'm a dude), and part of it is habit started waaaaay back in my early teen years when any sort of boobies were like gold to my mind :D

Yeah, that often applies to my "main" character. But I dont want to play myself all the time. That would be freaking super boring.

Has to do with being secure in their own sexuality huh?  Thats a bull theory and you know it. 

 

Reminds me of the time in College when I was in theater, we were prepping up for a show, and this guy I knew said he just loved putting on makeup and would wear it at home of he could.  I said, " Dude, thats a little weird but okay. " and his little girlfriend piped up and said, " Well he's just secure in his sexuality though. " to which I replied to her, " Sarah.....HE'S BISEXUAL, so yea, I guess I would agree with you.  I guess. "   She looked down, embarrassed, didnt say another word to defend her bisexual man, and the entire room laughed including her boyfriend. 

 

Secure in their sexuality my *** .   Im not saying the guys are bisexual that do this.  I get why they do it.  But yea, its weird.  Like I said in a few posts ago, any time a guy plays as a female it causes confusion.  Ive seen it time and time again.  It never ends.  Had a friend in EvE who played as a female (which matters far less than it does in most games) and every new person he met assumed he was a real life female.  Drove him nuts until he finally just started telling people he was 14 years old, female, and from California.   Hahahaha.  With hilarious results.  Since he couldnt beat the confusion he just intensified it.

That's a bit like calling an author a crossdresser for creating characters of the opposite sex.  The author isn't their character, and players aren't their characters.

If I create a character in a fictional world, I want it to be interesting.  If I only ever created male characters, it'll be less interesting than occasionally making a female one.  Granted, I never really role-play the characters, so one could argue that I'm not creating a character unless it's a game like ME3 or ToR where part of the gameplay is making that character's decisions.

Either way, there's never any mixup where I consider the character to be me, regardless of my character's gender.

It's like criticizing an author for writing female characters into his books.

I totally agree here. Don't mix sex and games together, there is nothing real there man. I just play whatever that looks nice, there is no sexual connotation involved whatsoever. Don't over think things like this, life is too complicated as it is.

I would disagree to a degree.

While I can agree that the OP needs to be a bit more open-minded, at the same time, a LOT of people who actually do have issues exist on the internet, and many of them use that anonimity to let those issues loose. The OP seems a little intollerent, but its just plain naive to think the things being described here dont exist.

Definitely not all, maybe not even most, but many for sure.

About 1/3 of my toons are female. I like making females characters, but I have to admit they are all dikes.

I once thought about rolling a female toon in WoW, just to see what it was like. But I thought I would probably just spend all my time looking at myself.

I find it a bit off. I dont know why. Never in my mmo life have I made a female. I do however have male friends that make femals toons exclusively. I wonder though, I never see women making male toons. Wonder why that is...

Like always, you shouldn't assume your way of doing things is the only way or the "right" way. Its just one way of many. Different people play for different reasons and want different things from their characters.

Where are the options for a hermaphrodite character?  You can get the experience of being both male and female, and if you ever get bored, you can go %^&@ yourself.

Its half and half for me. I do not like how much guys look in most games so making a hot lady works out just fine. I've never roleplayed a girl character. Its silly to care what anyone would play in a video game. Playing a girl character generally gets more favors and stuff from other people in the chance that you may be a girl in real life but since I am always a PK its pretty obvious that I am not.

NEWS FLASH! A bank was robbed the other day and a man opened fire on the customers being held hostage. One customer zig-zag sprinted until he found cover. When questioned later he explained that he was a hardcore Darkfall Online player and knew just what to do.
