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.

The only thing wrong with you is that you can't roleplay, the character that you play as doesn't need to be you.

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

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


I know there is a lot of female gamers, just not as many as guys. That's why the "8/10" part I mentioned bewildered me.

Except the "8/10 part" is completely pulled out of your ass.

Also women gamers make up AT LEAST 40% of gamers, more-so for online games/MMOs.

Well I'm sorry I have a hard time pretending to be a female.

People that purposely play as girls in RPGs are the same kind that wear their girlfriends panties when they arent around. Its the same concept.

Also this. TC, that's like saying male authors who have female characters are pervs/strange.

I think the TC has given this too much thought and attached too much importance to it. Some players like variety and to create different characters. Some other guys are maybe a bit lonely and get too attached to their female characters lol.
