Why do a good majority of people make female characters?

Except Mass Effect. Mass Effect had some pretty damn shapeless women for the first two games. The only reason my every Shepard has been female is because I can't f***ing stand that Meer guy's voice. I'd definitely prefer to make my Heavy character a male because of the badass armor models, but that voice...

*Shudder*

not to interrupt the latest pissing contest, but because most enemies and shopkeepers are male, you get a better benefit from agent of dibella and whatever that speech perk is that gives better prices from opposite gender, and new lovers insight from dragonborn works the same way. that's why i play a female in this game, and also to see what if anything is different gameplay wise. (so far only the gear looking different for females)

Always play as a male character in every game where I'm given the choice....I'm a dude. Playing as a female sort of takes away from the immersion aspect of the game.

Is it wierd to play as a redguard if you aren't black? Is it wierd to play as a khajiit if you aren't a cat? Is it wierd to play as an argonian if you aren't a fish? Honestly is choosing a guy who is a super badass dragborn with incredible strength and skill any more immersive then choosing a girl? It's just a game, honestly.

I have yet to make a male character in Skyrim. But me personally, I'd rather be looking at a females ass than a males.

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.


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


If you find it weird for people to create a female character I have every right to find it just as weird that you're seeing yourself in a video game character. Is your life that dull and boring that you need to become the character?

As many have said the character regardless of RPing doesn't NEED to be you, Paul Anderson is male and the main character in the RE movies is Alice. It just goes to show you don't have the ability to be a writer since you can't create a story for any gender other than your own nor are you capable of suspending your belief and not making the character yourself.

I enjoy the idea of a badass woman not taking shiet from anyone and doing their own thing. I can't create that story with a male character, learn to not be insecure

Skyrim, Halo 4, ACIII, Dishonored, BOII, FO:NV and ME3 as we all know is just a bunch of crap to fill the gap until FO4.

White people don't exist.
