I usually play something of a self-insert. I try to make them look like me - which can be hard, as I often prefer non-human characters. Right now I'm playing Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) as a dark elf vampire. I also try to keep my character's names lore-friendly. Paladins and berserkers are my usual classes, depending on the game. Basically, I try to make a character I would be happy to be stuck as if something like Log Horizon were to happen.

My friends don't think the same way.

Two of them (male) play as their ideal women. Their reasoning is that they'd prefer to stare at a woman's back. This kind of makes me uncomfortable. One of them has totally pretended to be female to get stuff from gullible male players. He's the reason I say girl is an acronym for "Guy In Real Life" in online games.

Another friend plays almost exclusively as joke characters. In ESO he has an orc he made to look like Shrek named "Get Ogre Here" as a class with a skill resembling Scorpion's chain fatality, and a khajiit (cat person) named "Sneaky Dunmer" (Dunmer being the dark elves). I kind of love his characters.

What about you? Do you put yourself in the world like me? Or do you play as someone else?

All kinds from females to males, orcs, humans, elfs. I can play anything as long as it's somewhat lore friendly and not a complete joke. When playing healer it's usually a GIRL.

Typically I try and make variations of the same character each time but the role/class of my character varies. I usually can't decide what role to play and end up taking whatever is leftover.

I play myself because it's more intuitive after a hiatus.

I play as female character, but I emphasize that I'm male if someone asks. I have another masculine male character in stock but hardly plays him. Anyway dps rules

When I have played MMOs in the past I usually play cute female healer/support or ranged characters. Although the character I have put the most time into is when I used to play WoW and I played a female troll priest.

I usually switch between ranged such as mage or archer class, to close combat types like dueling swords. If possible I like to go with the magic knight option so I can switch between close and range

I choose class depending on how the game is, if its range friendly i usually go with that, always fun to go a little pew pew . if melee have alot of gap closers and and hard hitting abilities i usually play melee.

With gender its usually a cointoss. I play either or. if i have more characters i usually have one of each, but it depends on how gear and the race look and such. lot of variables. I do prefer to choose everything other then humans races though i just find that so bland and boring, i mean, here you are a human, playing as a human when you could be something way more creative and fun, but thats just my opinion

I usually start out with lore friendly names, but as things progresses and i see how other people name their character i get less serious about it, and usually go for funny/weird names aswell.
