What gender is/are your primary character/characters in game and what are your reasonings behind this? I'm generally interested so please be as detailed as you like :)
I usually go for male in a first playthrough because I'm male. When it comes to MMORPGs it depends on what class I pick. If I go for an archer or some type of mage I often pick a female but as a warrior or some sort of tank I often pick a male.
I don't play games that restrict me to male and female genders. Dragon Age: Inquisition's character creation showed good progression but the fact that there were still only 2 gender options I found problematic.
I just can't make a male face that doesn't look like he should have been swallowed.
I make a male for a main. .but for ats I prefer to make at least one chick. . get tired of seeing a dude all day . .again, that's for alts, but it does depend on the class or role.
Yeah a lot of the time male wizards just look weird because the male characters are bulky as fuck so you have a super jacked dude in robes. Just doesn't fit but normally I pick male.
Depends, don't really have a preference. If I'm playing a warrior/tank in MMORPGs, I go with male, that's the only time when I don't randomly pick.
Who makes faces anyway, just go with one of the default ones.
i usually go with females in shooting games cause smaller target harder to spot and they never have strength penalty in games anyways.
in games where size is not important i usually go with male bruisers.
I'm 100% anti-RP, but for some reason I absolutely always view my game character as a virtual representation of myself. So it's ALWAYS male, even to the point of having a hard time playing games with only a female protagonist.
It also makes it hard for me to choose non-humanoid races in rpgs. For example WoW, I can play as Human, Undead, Elves no problem. It took me a while to be able to make an Orc but now I have to problem with it. As much as I like Dwarves, Goblins and Tauren I could NEVER play as one. Absolutely fuck Trolls, Gnomes, and Blueberries.
When I was young I could play the shit out of things like Tomb Raider, just spent most of my time trying to angle the camera on her tits. Now a days I just kinda look at all video games like the holodeck in Star Trek, and I don't wanna look retarded.
Male. I like to roleplay with MMORPG and shit.
Girls. Because I like girls.
Primitive? It's biology. It's fact. Are you trans-nigger as well since you're unhappy with your body so you're just gonna "imagine" yourself the way you want to be? Fuck off back to tumblr.
Also If there's a default character, Iwill probably pick him.
>pick fucking related
I understand, but this is part of the roleplay aspect. If you can't play a game without mentally relating to it, then you're roleplaying your preferred self but in a different world.
MMORPG - ManyMenOnlineRolePlayingGirls
Only the beta weirdo's do it, and I have some sympathy. They don't want to be themselves because they're huge ugly men. It seems all huge ugly men want is to be is a tiny hot girl.
>play as a dude easy comely fucks at every corner half the world is populated by my spawns
>play as female lesbo mfw all teh lesbo npc are ugly cows or old crows not a single decent shag
I always play as a girl, because I really don't want to watch a guy running around for 30 hours.
female cuz in 3rd person i have not so much space taken because of a huge male.
and sometimes in games they have some "body accenting" gear which looks just good
no i never jerked off to one of my characters, i do like to take a closer look to the gear tho
Hey, I'm that guy, what is so perverted about it? Who can't play a damned video game without rubbing one out to their character? Femshep adds a ton of replay value to Mass Effect and I personally prefer Jennifer Hale as a voice actor. With Saints Row, why would you not play as a psychotic bisexual voiced by Laura Bailey given the opportunity?
Female, if I'm going to waste years of my life on a MMO I'm at least going to stare at a woman's ass and back the whole time.
Sad as it is, it's better than staring at a guys ass the whole time.
It's just the archetype for me in general, in classic rpgs etc
In Mass Effect for example I played a femshep, looking a bit like a milf and it fitted 100 % with the german sync. The default one would've been shit
If there's an option to pick a girl, I always default to girl because it helps immersion and whatnot, but I don't mind playing male characters (Mass Effect 1 & 2 I played as MaleShep before playing FemShep in 3).
the difference is biological gender and gender identity. you could stop NEETing around and read something
I almost always choose male when playing RPGs, my first playthrough is ALWAYS a dude, I only choose girls when it actually makes a difference in the story (like in DA:O, when I choose a girl on my 6th playthrough because I wanted to be queen of Ferelden) or when I want to see lesbos make out (my 7th playthrough, Leliana <3).
Male for plate/mail wearers if fantasy
Female for cloth and leather as they are more aesthetically pleasing.
I have 5 male commander Shepards and 3 female of various racial heritage and features.
No, because being a conjoined twin, they would be both genders simultaneously, while also technically being the same connective person. A hermaphrodite would just be a whimsical mix.
I had to read it during time at university.
I still identify as a male but I am less butthurt about people identifying as asexual basement dwellers.
>le xD tumblr maymay everything about gender belongs dere because its not philosophy
Why would you be staring at their ass you fucking aspie? This is the dumbest argument people use.
You shouldnt have a choice in this, its fukinh retarded when you play one of these games and some female sounds like a fat neckbeard.
Fuking breaks immersion.
Fuck all you fat neckbeards.
yeah, that was it, you can't properly romance her anyways though she is always appreciative of you asking after her. went for sera, cos she is funny as hell. think dorian or iron bull would be fun to romance on another playthrough. josephine seems like she would be a bit shit to romance
>josephine seems like she would be a bit shit to romance
Josephine has a nice personality, but the strolls through the garden are nice. Including the scolding by Leliana for hitting on Josephine.
Harding is unavailable as a date, but it's nice to making her feel uneasy anytime you give her compliments.
It's a shame though, I quite like Harding.
Males with default faces, can be any class.
Females are custom redhead, always rogue or something like that. And is lesbian.
But in some games males just wont do.
Like Dragon Age 2, female has much better voice actor, and default male looks like pedophile.
