I always choose the male character cause it feels wrong to portray myself as the opposite gender, especially on games with character customization. But for fighters and other things with preset characters that play differently from each other, I always choose based on whoever I like to play as no matter what gender they are.

Maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over -Azula-

If I can create hg/ss sabrina in character creation I would choose the female without hesitation. Otherwise I would probably choose the male and make him look like red.

I play as whatever's better looking, regardless of what I am.


I'm playing the female one 'cuz she's bootyful.

I'm a guy and since Kris was made available in gen II, I've always played as the male in the first game and female in the third game/sequel

I'll play as the guy on my first playthrough, because I'm a guy, and I usually make my first RPG characters like me, or just look like what I like (like my first Skyrim character was a Khajiit, though I am not a cat).

If I like the girl, I might play as her on another play, like I am in ruby, or in Skyrim, or what I will be doing in Mass Effect, Saint's Row 4, and Fallout, and stuff.

I'm a guy and choose to play as a guy. But not because if feels "wrong" to play as the opposite gender.
