Spotlight: Playing the Opposie Sex

Community Manager Laura Genender returns this week to give us a brand new Community Soptlight. This time, she lets us in on why people might play their MMOs this way.

This week on the forums, poster NewMonster asked a question in the General Discussion forums: what do people think of gamers who play characters of the opposite sex? This topic, a common debate in the MMO world, got a good bit of attention when our OP opened up a poll: what do people think of playing the opposite sex in an MMO?

Through the course of the thread, it's obvious that players are mostly in favor (or at least not opposed to) the idea of players picking the opposite gender for their character. According to the poll in the original post, 80.6% of 136 posters are just fine with gamers picking whatever they want, though the replies show varying reasons for this stance. Vinzent, presumably a male player who plays female characters, makes the most common case: "If I have to watch a butt [while I] grind through 560 levels, it's going to be a female butt."
