I'm tempted to put together an image showing off all the characters I've devoted substantial time to in the MMOs I've played.  There are monsters of varoius shapes, sizes, and genders, human men of different ages, builds, and skin colors, undead women and men, Victoria's secret models with horns, goth women, cat women, and so on.

 

I'm not trying to hide behind my characters, and since some people have serious emotional reactions when they discover a player is not who they imagined them to be, I'd have no problem displaying a little Mars symbol in my character's name tag.

 

I roll characters I think look cool, have good animations, look good in the game's armor, etc.  For me, in this game, that's a female Miqo'te.  Whether plate or robes or the bard artifact armor or mittens, they can pull off every look in the game IMO.  In a game that lets you play every class, that was a big factor for me.

Usually male but I personally don't care as I see the character as "a character" and not "me".

For example, I made a male dark elf character in Final Fantasy as a gladiator.

However, I wanted to try archer but I felt one of those cat lady people (You can tell I don't care about names either) might seem more interesting "as a character".

And yes I know you can play all classes on one character but I like the idea of different personas, different characters embodying different roles.

I used to always make all male characters.

 

I now almost always make all female characters.

 

It's kind of funny.  I installed and fired up VGSOH the other day and all my old characters were male and I was like, wow, it's been a LONG time since I've played this.

 

45.  Married to a hottie.  Thoroughly straight.

 

I'm not sure why exactly.  I guess I prefer looking at the female form more than I do looking at the male form.  Playing a cutesy male character doesn't do anything for me.

 

I'm not against RP and I'm not really into RP.  To me, my avatar is something for displaying gear and is a bag of stats and skills.  I don't consider my character to be an extension of me.

 

I like my characters to look good but I'm not like "ooh, these are some smexy pixels," because I do have RL involvement with another human and I'm not depraved like so many basement dwellers with zero hope of intimate interacts with other humans.

 

I don't care what other players do with the gender of their avatars.  I do wish I could delete the accounts of people that give their avatars stupid, clever, offensive, religious, drug-related, or otherwise immersion destroying names.  In a game with a sub, I expect better than F2P doodtopia.

Unless your intentions for playing an MMO are different than mine, I really don't see how this discussion really matters.

FF games tend to borrow heavily from religious themes.

When it's only humans as an option I go for own gender and try to make my character look like my real self.

It doesn't bother me if other people want to roleplay a different gender, after all these games we play are RPG's and if a player is any good at it he or she might fool allot of people.

I almost always create a male character. I don't think it matters but it usually makes more sense to me. I have seen on a number of occassions people referring to female characters as "she". It would bother me if people referred to me as a "she".

I find the lack of tralfamadorians  forces me to choose humanoid beings. Many of the Eastern games you cant tell the males from the females anyway.

Usually in MMO's, for my main character, I'll roll a male, (I'm male). It never bothers me if guys role female toons though, I couldn't care less. If they think that a certain race/class combo looks awesome as a female character, then that's fine with me. Female heroes can be awesome too. 

 

I once saw someone write that you're supposed to roll a character that you would want to be. Hmm, I want to be a lot of things in life, (responsible, healthy, financially stable, hard working, intelligent, etc., etc.,), but wielding a weapon and fighting awful monsters to the death isn't anything I'm interested in in real life. The idea that your hero needs to somehow be some expression of yourself, (or somebody you would want to be), has no basis in reality.

Your age says much, hah. Sorry but the candy still tastes good? After being chewed so many times? Not that I've any real experience in that, really... Yet knowledge doesn't needs to necessarily be earned through actual experience in the age we live now, huh?

Seriously, if you want to see real people, you can go out. So if you're in front of a screen, you'd naturally want to see something else.

And why do you "want"? 'Cause you like. Some others even prefer.

Take my advice, I'm not using it anyway.

I prefer playing males, and generally enjoy male leads in my varied entertainment over female leads. With RPG's specifically, I like being able to relate with my character, and I find that easier playing my own gender. What trumps all of this is my desire for my character to look "cool", and if the male model for a character is blocky and dumb in appearance, I'd rather use the female model if it's an improvement.

if I plan on doing RP on a character i'll make it male.  if not, i'll usually but not always make female. i tend to like the models better (i'm male in FF14 though because i liked the male lalafell model better than the female).

IRL male, straight.

 

i will never try to mislead a person on a female character to make them think i'm IRL female.  i consider it to be cruel hearted to do that.

 

in pencils and paper RPG, i've been known to run female characters, as have most, almost all, of the guys in my local RPG circle.

PnP games I always played males because I didn't want to rp a female.

MMOs I mostly pick females unless the males look very imposing/evil SWTOR was the last time I played a male character. My sith warrior looked awesome.

so I guess if the game doesn't let you do awesome, I go for hot :)

Depends what I want to go for thematically or when i'm making my own story or designs.

I usually wont play a female character if they are just fanservice material though. This game is pretty good about it's gender equality when it comes to armor though.

I just couldn't resist the male cats though, they are just way too cute.

Also high heels will also automatically turn me away from a character usually.

I only play female when the males look or animate horribly. So far the only game ive really mained a fem is Age of Conan. The rest were only alts I never really played very far... usually a healer. FFXIV will be human male.

Indifferent - I choose based on overall aesthetics, what suits my concept characters, etc.

In FFXIV, I had a difficult time choosing between a male and female character, especially keeping in mind that I was going to be using only 1 character in this game, and I ultimately settled on a male, but that decision had little, if anything, to do with the fact that society would consider my gender male. I hardly care what society dictates, especially in cases like this.

And yes, anyone who thinks everyone has any strong reason to purposely match their avatar gender with their own, socially-decreed, gender consistently is seriously confused.
