    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!

    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.
