Apart from singleplayer games where I have no choice in gender (TombRaider example) I often or mostly only choose male characters.

But to be honost I don't care if a guy play's a female character or a female play's a male character, what counts for me is if those people are fun to play with regardless.

I tend to play both genders, just based on my personal preference.  Charr and Sylvari I'm playing male, Human, Norn and Asura female.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

Ever since my first MMO (UO) I have always rolled female toons as my main and a male as an alt.

I like the female rolls in fantasy books and film, a woman doesn't have to be a mage type.  She can be a bad ass warrior kicking ass and taking names.  Red Sonja, Grace Jones in Conan.

 

That and male armor usually is bland and boring, where female armor though at times borders slutty is still cooler looking.

And yes I am male, I also happen to be gay but above all I am a person and a gamer....just because a male chooses to play a female toon or vice versa doesn't make them some kind of "virtual crossdresser"   [mod edit]

I'm not my character.  Why does this even need to be explained to some people?

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

Both depends on the astetics of the char and the general story.

For example in WoW i've played both male and female champs, mostly due to the animations they had, female orcs, night elves, and UD, male dwarves, humans, trolls and space goats.

in SWTOR i played Male champs mostly, accpet for my IA just because i grabed Sydney Bristow as my name and legacy name :P so ofc i made a JG clone and went on my way to kick some ass alias style...

You have two wives and you want a third?! I think this guy must be old school, no easymode casual girlfriend for him.

As someone who's mildly transgendered, I almost always play female characters. I was forced to roll male IRL, I'm not going to force myself to in the virtual landscape as well. :)

This is all a bit to gay for me with men wanting to be female and then use those stolen charms by cheating othermen that are straight into giving them things. Some men would use this feature to maybe even groom young boys.. Now thats a frightening thought. I always play a male charecter as i like to be manly and enjoy letting others know im a man too, if those other guys wanna have gay or even drag queen like momments then i would be a little worried.

I agree with many of your other points, but I suspect that players that would behave in this way towards 'woman wannabes' would be equally obnoxious towards genuine female players.

 

Anyway, I tend to assume that any female avatar I encounter is being controlled by a male player. I see no problem with this; it ensures that I treat each player the same way. The actual gender of the player, and their reasons for choosing the gender of their avatar, are not my concern. [mod edit]  Besides all of that, with so few customization options these days, avatars in most current games tend to look very much alike. They become toons rather than characters - little more than utensils with which to consume the game's content and no more worthy of attention than a spoon.

What activity? Looking? Because that's all he said. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time playing games without looking. But please, tell us more things you think we shouldn't be doing while playing games.

I will roll up either depending on the class or what I am in the mood to play. I have specific gnames I use in all MMOs I play, both male and female. I have friends that specifically play males because they can't see themselves playing the opposite sex. I have other friends that only play females because "they want something nice to look at." I don't care what gender other people are in RL. I play games to play games not to flirt with a possible girl.

He was implying that he pays special attention to please his sexual attraction to females, not just looking. I would assume most of us focus our attention on the game rather than how characters look from behind.

Yeah, and you're implying that we should be the ones to tell others what they can and can't do while playing a game in the privacy of their own homes.

I'm not saying I agree with the guy, but that's his choice, not ours.

MMORPGs are not exactly strictly within the privacy of their homes, they are in a shared space with other people. Even if they are within their homes, there are still "unwritten rules" of what is acceptable behaviour and what isn't: such as not chewing with their mouth open.
