    As I've grown older and have developed a more open minded perspective it bothers me less.

    I played as a female character throughout my Rift time, solely because they had better animations.

    However, I generally only play as male simply because I feel that your avatar represents you in a game.

    At the end of the day it's personal choice.

    I really only play male. I just feel weird as hell entering a voice chat with a bunch of strangers as a guy playing a female character.

    In Age of Wushu, I played a female because the models were more pleasant to the eye than male models. Almost all the top players in my guild were guys playing as a female character. I wasn't surprised when we were all on raidcall because we all came clean in the beginning. A few players outside of our guild believed that our guild was an all girls guild.

    I usually play male, but when I can't get them to look somewhat like a man I make a female.

    It's a game, yes I play female characters exclusively. That's why I enjoy games when I can play as female, orc, alien or a ninja cyborg(MGR:R). Trying to resemble yourself in a game would go the opposite way my idea of "having a good time, relaxing".

    I play the roughest looking manly men I can muster up. Glorious beards and hulk like physiques don my character selection screens in every game!
    the future is bleak, uncertain, beautiful
    tomorrow they might come and arrest us all
    only if you listen closely can you hear the machines
    beneath the side walk whispering
    the machines beneath the side walk are
    always whispering
    strive to listen close
    please, try to be free
    don't be afraid
    the end of the world will never come

    Generally, if I have to look at the back of my character the entire time I play, I choose a female. Might as well look at a pixel girls ass than a pixel dudes ass. Anything else, I just play whatever I like. I pick Siren in Borderlands, but thats because I just enjoy the class. Stuff like Fallout and Skyrim I always play as a dude.
