A few months ago I re-subbed to an MMO that I used to play. Now, as a man... 99% of the time I always made male characters for everything. It just felt weird making a female character as a man. I have no problem playing games that force you to play as a female though. I loved playing the Tomb Raider games growing up, and Lightning might be my favorite Final Fantasy main character of the series.

Anyways, I decided to roll with a rugged warrior-like female character this time around as a nice change of pace. One thing that was obvious to me right away though was just how differently people treat you... especially men. As a fellow man, it felt like every other interaction was just a complete cringe-fest. I have a lot of newfound respect for women who deal with this stuff on a regular basis!

You tend to get more men who are willing to help you "from the good of their heart" only to ask you a million personal questions afterwards. I also found it impossible to give out any sort of small compliment or thanks (via dungeons, raids, etc) without men assuming I'm flirting. It's pretty funny when I tell them I'm a man and they go dead silent though.

I'm starting to feel like I understand women a little more lol. As for my fellow bros.... a lot of you are painfully awkward af. Whoever thought that telling a woman she's a "qt" was okay in any situation needs to reevaluate their social views.

Who else has had some funny experiences playing the opposite gender here?

No, never. People always roughly treated me the same no matter what I played.

That's pretty much the reason why I don't disclose to people that I'm a female when playing games. For example, playing league of legends, no one really knows whether a player is a girl or not (unless they live up to the stereotype of playing only support, then one can guess that person is possibly a girl). I could say that most of the friends I've made on this game only became my friend because they found out I was a girl. Only after did they find out I was a girl they would start inviting me to games, calls, and wanting to be more close, lolzzzzz.

I pretty much went off-topic since I didn't answer your original question. I've never really experienced anything funny when being the opposite gender in games, but I do prefer playing a male characters whenever im given an option to get dicks off back.

I know back in the day my brother pretended to be a girl while playing Soldier Front. He was pretty good at the game and I guess he only did that so he could be part of some group on there. I feel sorry for the dude he trolled though. (bro is completely straight).

This post is to accurate reminds me of the time when the Xbox360 first released and Gears of War blew up, anytime a female voice would appear in a match the conversion would instantly switch to to sexual innuendos or just plain old creepy old dudes talking sh*t.

Speaking on behalf of men everywhere, I do in fact treat women nicer in some games. Don't know when you could get laid you know. That and I prefer the nice soft bosom of a female to confide into when she's not interested. Am I disgusting? Am I so starved for female love that I'll take on platonic relationships to fill my heart with?

I've never seen people use "qt" outside of 4chan. Is that actually a thing?

Ironically using something like an idiot always leads to genuine idiots thinking it's a real, new trend.

ofc when you play with -16 (some not even teenagers) insecure, not good social even less by playing and so on.

while I do enjoy playing as a female character from times and yes its funny even if you make them think you are a female (joke on myself when I go.. full gender bending) woops...

at least no harm has ever been the case MMO or most games from my exp unless... a female use the mic and are in maybe their 20's and those little guys want to know or "play" with her when being the easiest target (like anyone using a mic online, mostly on xbox live where it was so toxic)

I mostly allways use chat not mic, and mic just ruins somethings at least in PvP games.
and to games I also exp females that most often use the mic too often or leaves it on and annoy's most of the teammates anyway (at least thats how most of the COD matches where if someone had a mic)
