Not in just this game but in several games I've played over the years that offer a choice between genders, a lot of people make females. More than males it seems. I was looking at some Skyrim mods just like I did with FO:NV and noticed that 8/10 of them that post "Thank You" photos for most mods are females. It's just whenever I make a char, I see him as me since I am playing him. I feel something must be wrong with me. Oh and don't say something dumb like, "Uh..because I don't feel like looking at a guys butt herr herr."

no, most people do play male characters.

however the people who like to show off their characters often play females cus they "dress them up" and such. and "look how pretty my character is".
its kinda creepy.

And because they want to, because it's a roleplaying game, or because they're that horny.

That's how I feel about it and I felt isolated as if I was the only one thinking that way.

No, you're just insecure.

I make both female and male chars, but I don't care too much about that. My last char was a male redguard, but now I'm playing a female breton.

The female figure is generally considered the paramount of human beauty.

Source: Every ancient civilization ever, such as the Greeks and Romans.

And, some gamers are even females themselves, more than you would seem to think.

Because when you play the game, your character is who you want him or her to be.

Now, I usually have a harder time RP'ing a female character so most of mine are male, but apparently a lot of players like to do it. Don't be so judgmental and instantly call them all perverts.

Because those guys who do make female characters are guy and as such, are stimulated visually. That's my take on it.
