I noticed a lot of guys make female characters when given the choice. From shooters to mmo's female characters are everywhere. So my question to the girl gamers is do you make male characters when given the choice?

Well duh!
BTW Male characters are everywhere to, it's not like there's a shortage of males in video games.

No I make females, like on Soul Calibur IV I just milked the customize system which is amazing and kept making female fighters. I liked customizing the males, but with the girls you could give them purple hair and yellow eyes or something awesome. I also turned into a typical woman and loved dressing them up like dolls.

Most games I have guys are the lead characters, which isn't a problem at all, its just made me more likely to choose females if given the choice in other games.

Guys make female characters to seduce other players into doing things for them.

My cousin used to do that.

"Hey, honey. Wanna give me 10k? I'm new."

In the games I've played, I know certain that there are girls who were playing as a male character. I've even talked with them through Skype ;__;

I usually use male characters (not online, though, but I haven't played online for years), since I tend to hate the designs for female characters -- too much boob, awkward, revealing outfits, too much pink, annoying hair, etc -- or they make annoying screeching/screaming sounds, and often don't have as cool looking weapons or actions. :/

The majority of females i have run into in rpg's played female characters.
I personally don't make female characters, if i can avoid it. But i am a stickler when it comes to character creation. I will spend hours getting it just right, and it needs a good name. I will go back and delete my character if i am not happy with the look or name.

Some people just don't care about any of that. And will play opposite gender chars with names like DeathmonsterbloodslayerXXX.

And the last group, as mentioned is the guys who play female characters to trick sad and lonely nerds into doing stuff for them under the guise of female appreciation.


But having also played with female gamers for years. I know that all but a few, refuse to reveal the fact that they are female to random gamers, simply because they will get treated differently. Or even get constantly messaged or mailed by aforementioned sad and lonely nerds.


I would expect legit gamer girls to play male characters, IF it wasn't for the fact that so many males play female characters and mask their presence.



As sad as it is, it does affect the enjoyment of the game for MMO playing girls, if it's commonly known that they are females. Due to the high concentration of young teenage boys with questionable social skills and hormons.
This is why you often see a far far higher percentage of female players in mature guilds. Where they can play and have fun without judgment and harassment.

Lady Hawk is my answer.

Other then that I usually prefer male avatars/characters. Mostly because I don't want to hear the "that scanty and cleavage revealing armor is for MOBILITY!" excuse. The gaming industry has a severe lack of actually respectable female characters. Even fewer are those that are canonically female.

To summarize? I play males because I don't want to walk around in a "rape me!" outfit.

I find that to be a disgusting answer.

Especially the

bit.
No outfit, no matter how revealing. Fuck it, they could even be walking around completely naked. And it shouldn't lead anyones mind towards rape. Rape is always, 100% categorically the offenders fault.
There was an international discussion on this only a few months back. Where some official had said that some females should stop wearing outfits that tempted men to rape them.
It's fucking horrendously disgusting that anyone would ever claim the victim brought this on.

Any normal, respectable, moral person. Would never ever, even in the slightest, entertain the thought of raping someone. Regardless of their outfit. There is no "Rape me!" outfits.
If you feel that a scantily clad woman is just asking to be raped, i suggest you just take it to the next step and throw a burka on them. Since, you know, some men find any skin, or even hair arousing. Can't have women tempt men to rape them by showing off their bare hair.


The exact same sentiment is applied to little kids who run around in diapers in the summer time.
"It tempts pedophiles to molest." Fuck that. If you think anything other than "i wonder if that kid is cold." Or "I hope it doesn't fall and hurt itself."
Something is wrong with you. Not the kid, and not the parents, and not society.

And i see you missed my point entirely. Or are you trolling?

I never said it was, but I don't know.... could I have something besides tit-shaped breastplates and matric boob physics in videogames? That's my main issue. What you're doing is deconstructing and derailing my post. Don't do that, its stupid.

I have very little morals first of all, second of all I think I offended you. It was a very strong, worded post. The "rape me!" outfits are the described slut outfits throughout videogames. Let's not forget you can make females bare down to their underwear....

You missed my point entirely. My rage was about the lack of respectable clothing for females as well as when they DO appear, its for the damsel, side antagonist, or for the fappable (usually non-canon) main character. Did I say anything more then that? Did I? Did I imply that I said "It is the woman's fault and no one else's that they are raped"?

Are you fucking retarded? You splurred shit out of no where and try to tell me what my post says? U MAD?

I don't need to elaborate. You "rape me! outfit" comment said it all.

But you know what, i will address what you tried to say. Poorly.

You know why the outfits are the way they are? Because that is what the majority people want.
I think your attempted point is either childish, uptight, or a poor attempt at getting female support by saying "ohh look look, i'm not objectifying you!!!"

It's been proven for years and years and years that the gamer crowd like hot women, in nice outfits. We have plenty of females who doesn't at all play on sex appeal. And for that reason, there are plenty of games where the females wear big lumbering plate armor exactly like the males.


Once the vast majority of clientel stops wanting skimpy outfits and jiggly boobs physics, it will disappear. The gaming industry isn't doing it in opposition to players.
