Why would I want to look at the ass of a male character?  :D

I typically play female characters because they look cuter and typically have nicer looking armor.  So in other words I play female characters for the eye candy.

When staring at the screen for hours, lookin g at the backside of my character I'd rather watch a female backside.

Additionally, devs tend to spend more time designing females aswell. They generally look better in every game. Better faces, better armor, better animations, etc.

The 'main' character I play through all MMOs goes back to Neverwinter Nights (the Bioware/Atari version)

It was originally going to be a male Elven Warrior. However, not long after starting to play, I realized how horribly the male characters were animated. They ran, literally, like they had to take a dump. It was horrible. Females, on the other hand, were animated beautifully. So.. I switched over to a female character.

One of the PW's I played on in NwN was a RP server, and so I did a kind of "RP lite". I didn't try to full on RP a female character, but I injected personality to my character that were personality-based - certain quirks, etc - not gender based. I could have played either a male or female character and it wouldn't have made a difference.

I grew to really enjoy that character and created them on every NwN PW I played. So, when I made the jump to my first full-blown MMO (you could call NwN my "gateway drug"), I decided to bring that character with me. And so, on pretty much every MMO I play, I have the same character, same name, same race (Elven when available) and same class (Warrior, or similar), with black hair and, when an option, green eyes. I've only deviated from that when a given option wasn't available, or I didn't like a given MMO's incarnation of it.

That's the story in a nutshell for me. And that's literally all there is to it. It's amazing how many times people will try to put me on the defensive, though, about "why a dude is playing a female character". It simply doesn't matter to me, because my character on-screen is not representative of me as a person. I don't believe I'm a female Elven Warrior when I'm playing a MMO, any more than I believe I'm Lara Croft when playing Tomb Raider, or Samus Aran when playing Metroid, etc...

I think some people read way too much into it, personally.

I don't give a shit about what "some" people think about playing opposite gender characters...

I play females when the models look better than the equivalent male models, which is sadly quite often.

To use the most popular game as example, in WoW I had:

Female night elf - both female and male humans - female gnome - male dwarf - no undead (all ugly) - female troll - male tauren - no orc (ugly too) - female and male worgen - female draenei - no goblin (utterly ugly) - no panda (ugh...).

I still played the starter areas of the races I didn't want to play any further just to see them though, and then deleted the character.

It's all about personal preference about how the characters looks like, nothing else. And I think it's the same for everybody.

Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2

Got a refund: Archeage. First refund since I started MMOs.

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

I find more disturbing why humans play orcs or elves, when they could be playing humans.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

I find it more disturbing that humans play humans (which they are 24/7 anyway obviously) instead of trying something new. ;)

@OP Thx for new screen saver. Who is chasing her ? ^^

That's because most  designers are male and they have studied women from when they were 15 year old boys. They know what looks good on a woman, but they're not aware what a male needs to look good.

I'm a gay male who plays male chars.  Since this thread was to show off a youtube vid I'll back at you and show off my youtube vid.  It's a tasteful documentary nothing as fun.  The subject of this thread seems to have focused on how poorly male chars are created.  To that I would say I appreciate sims 2 with phallus mods and blur unrendered (non mmo) and Aion as top tributes to male rendering.

 

Next time if they ask your name tell them "Your Overlord." There's nothing more satisfying than an Arby's employee repeatedly yelling over the munching masses, "Your Overlord's classic cheddar is up!!!"

I play both Male & Female in every mmo i have the following

 

Quazal < My Main male account/toon

Quazaline < My Main female account/toon, I have backstories created for them both, Basicalyl brother and sister, then the story fits around what ever game im playing

 

So for me little bit of role-play but role play out of game not ingame, 

This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game :) were of course your welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.

If a game has decent customisation I usually make my first character male, try to make him look similar to me. If the game has piss poor options I just go for female.

It does seem not a lot of thought goes into the models for male characters.  I thought WoW's were awful - all weird chunks and blocky angles.  Some other games make them weirdly androgynous.

Very funny and enlightening video, I didn't realize this was even a topic.

As for playing female characters, I used to use the butt argument but I never really understood why until I saw one of Bill Burr's stand up routines.  He sums it up nicely in the last minute or so.

Thats really taking an eronious leap of faith. Where do you have any evidence to support this? That would also call into question why men play women as they realistically should be sexually harassed
