If you play MMOs to hook up with chicks theres something wrong with your head.

Well i dont mind playing as a girl, but only after you beat a game with a male character first, it just gives the same game a different feel

Of course im talking about RPGs here

I am, but not for that. Though the walking motion is definitely something to be seen.

Sorry for the necro, but I came across something related with this thread's topic.

I came across this blog post, and the story the guy shared there piqued my interest.

The TL;DR version is that the blogger's male friend reacted to this picture:

with "That's so gay".

And the blogger then deducted that his friend was probably projecting himself to the avatar, taking the meaning of the word literally. And yes, anyone who see a man dressing like that would probably react the same way (no offense meant)

Personally, I'm more in the "look at" side, the blogger's rationale even syncs perfectly with mine and probably (I'm guessing) the majority here:

My default mentality in playing games is to be an attractive female -- if I'm going to be spending tens or hundreds of hours staring at my avatar, I want that avatar something that's fun to look at.

Agreed. If I am going to be spending hours playing an RPG and staring at a behind, I want it to be a behind that I will enjoy looking at.

Such as that sweet sweet exhaust of an F-14 or that above the back look of a T-34, or the pleasing curves of a VF-19 and a VF-25... oops, wrong behinds.

But srsly, it's really the fun aspect. If I have to stare at an ass for hours on end, it may as well be an ass I'd like to look at. ;p

Why are you staring at their asses? MMO's aren't RPG's get your ass moving and stop holding up the raid. XD

I was referring to an RPG, not an MMO. I don't really have this problem in FPS or mecha games because I don't actually get to see my character, though I do get to see my character's mecha...

*looks over his Macross Triangle Frontier Academy Mode Save Data, which is 1 boy & two girl custom pilots*

...nevermind.

Why Guys like playing as girls?

Men wants to be in control. From weapons to clothing.. It's like dressing up an online "barbie"without being labelled as gay...

Oh, and to assessed how our fellow men are so dumb....

In MMO's I always try to have 2 accounts I like playing both female and male character.

Female for fanservice. Male for awesomeness

Male Human with Paladin Judgment Armor is enough AWESOMENESSERVICE for me. Don't need to waste time on terrible WoW texture booty.

I think this is probably true. For lots of guys, they like girls and want to be closer to them or around them more. So it's not that you're trying to become the girl character, but be with her. It's rather silly and kind of sad if you think about it.

The only time I was playing female characters was in UT 2k3/4 when the thin female player models suggested a smaller hitbox and thus were somewhat harder to hit.

In RPGs I find it hard to get into my character if it's female.

I don't like to look at the man's ass.

And going around killing everything in a little girl form is awesome.

Usually play as an female character is when I'm forced to play as an girl cause I have no choice.
Since its Gender restricted on classes, in some (or most) f2p games.
(If my English makes any sense I hope you understand).

I'm a solo player so I don't do fancy group-forcing stuff like instance running. Thus, I have time to watch the environment to which I'd count also my character at times .

Btw, I have a feeling that this "look at" mentality is rather exclusive to anime otakus or at least those who are influenced by its culture.

In the story that I linked to in my previous post, the blogger wasn't particularly an avid anime watcher (afaik), but he's heavily influenced by the Touhou fandom so he had contact with part of the culture (that site is where I go to read his Touhou fics).

I mean, I know even not all otakus are in the "look at" mentality, but are there "normals"/"muggles" out there who have this as the default mentality when choosing an avatar?

There are; most of my muggle friends gave me the same answer.

I choose gender depending on the class i'm using. Warrior, Berserker, Tank, and other melee type that focus primarily on brute strength, i tend to use male. Because, well, seeing male characters in heavy armor and wielding badass sword and shield just look cool and masculine for me. While other classes that usually don't take punches (Priest, Healer), i tend to use female because i can't stand seeing female characters get pwned to death (I'm kinda feminist on this part).

Currently i prefer playing Asian RPGs over western one because they usually have anime-like character designs which i'm very fond of

I think most of my characters back in my MMORPG days are mages and majority are females:

> I loved to see their ass shake when they run.
> I loved their voice when they shout.
> I loved their moan when they get hit.
> I loved their sexy dresses.
> I loved the extra attention from the "losers" who wants to flirt with me...
