    FFXIV Character

    Pumpkin Contrary (Sargatanas)

    Default Male or Female?

    Which gender do you usually chose to play when given the options in video games

    Assuming there is no robot option because everyone would choose that

    I choose female because I guess I identify with them more easily?

    Women more than men, because women are better than men.

    Used to pick men only, but female design has gotten a lot better the past years! So I really don't mind looking at a cute female.

    If I choose men, they have to be super manly and awesome looking.

    Male. I have 1 female character in GW2. 3 males. And my next will be male.

    DayZ I'm always a guy since it's pretty much a virtual extension of myself.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I enjoy playing both; it depends on whatever character personality I feel like playing at the time because I like to give my characters personalities.

    My WoW characters are split about 50/50 male/female. My current main is a male because he's adorable. Apparently it's not common for women to play men in WoW, but hey!

    I usually pick female because I don't even know why.I guess if I'm going to be looking at something for so many hours I want it to be a lady.

    Same as pumpkin, I identify more with female characters

    This sounded more sexist after I typed it, but... I like both, with male lead(s) and female secondary characters. For example, in Dragon's Dogma right now, my main character is a guy (who looks like me), my main pawn is a girl, and I recruit other female pawns whenever possible.

    I'm discussing my 108, er, 111 favorite games of all time in THIS THREAD so go check it out and join the conversation!

    I generally choose female when given the option, but I'm comfortable playing a male character as well.

    I used to play dudes all the time because I am one and this made it more 'me'. Ever since Commander Shepard though, I play as women wherever I can. If a game doesn't give you a choice, chances are you're going to be playing as a man, so when there is a choice it's nice to address that balance a bit.

    The only exception was when I was playing a bit of FFXIV. I don't like having people assume I'm a woman just because that's what my avatar is. Mainly 'cause I've done that before and then they feel all betrayed when they come on to me and I tell them I'm a guy.

    FFXIV Character

    Sheetle Bug (Sargatanas)

    Default

    I go for the default because I'm lazy and usually can't be bothered changing any options. So it's usually male. Not that I care either way.

    Well you lose your biggest strength that way!

    No joke; I'm a chick in WoW currently and I act all "tee hee :3" cute in groups and they forgive every stupid-ass mistake I make.

    I feel very insecure and so can only play as a dong wielding sausagelord at all times, lest my masculinity be threatened.

    Depends. Usually I just play a guy, but if it's a game where I have to spend untold hours in third person, I prefer female.

    If I have to spend hours looking at an ass, might as well be a nicely sculpted female one.
