    Default Guys playing as female characters in MMORPGs/MMOs

    I don't usually play as female characters in Western MMORPGs, but really only in Asian/Anime mmorpgs. Why?

    Because Anime is already extremely feminine and the guys look like girls already in those games.



    Anyways, do you think there is still a stigma regarding the whole guy playing a girl in mmo's issue? What do you think?

    Have you ever indulge yourself playing as a different gender?

    I don't mind guys that play as girls as long as they're not pretending to be girls. Those are the worst kinds of people and they'll try to take advantage of regular players because they're "females." I've known plenty of males that made it clear they were male and played females because they are attracted to the female form or classes are gender locked.

    In secret I'm dreaming of being a little asian girl, but because I'm born with balls, and white I've been doomed to play females in cutesy anime mmo's, to even come close to that dream.

    You reminded me of the general discussions talk about girl streamers and how we should hire Camgirls to make money off of lonely nerds. #ThrowBack #Money4Tats

    When I found out I can play a female character without it turning into one, I was okay with it.

    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 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".

    ^5 Exactly what I was saying.

    This echos my opinion on it exactly.


    Personally, I tend to play female characters as I find them cute and I enjoy looking at their ass. However, if the game is first-person, I play a male model as I wont be able to see it so there's not much of a point (at least for me) to play a female model.

    I always feel like a perv when I play female characters, but I'm trying to get back into GW2 so I made a female character just because of this thread. Thanks, thread.

    Guy as long as the physique and physical appearance is attractive. If it's blocky and brute-like as in WoW, lol no thanks. Some classes I will usually go female, like Clerics and Thieves (Femme Fatale isn't Femme Fatale without a Femme). But I usually stick to my gender.

    Games like FFXIV where guys (Miqo'te lol) are extremely good looking, yeah, I'll always pick male.
