So, why do some guys choose female mains over male?

Referring to today's poll, I was fairly surprised that most guys (or girls) sometimes choose female main characters.

I for one, always pick the male gender, just because I'm a guy.

I remember Persona 3 Portable was released (a game that was a port of an original but offering new content when playing as a female) and I tried playing as the female protagonist and I quit after an hour. I dunno, I guess the feeling was just not clicking enough for me to push through regardless of the new content.

Same with Pokemon. I tried choosing a female, but I just ended up fooling around not taking myself seriously and starting over after a couple minutes.

Now, this doesn't mean I won't play games that have female leads: Final Fantasy XIII, VI, Heavenly Sword, Beyond Good and Evil, I just mean with RPGS/MMOS.

I'm just curious to know why is all. Discuss?

^that

And it's a change of pace from the majority of games with male leads.

But most games that include two different genders barely differ... Is it just the difference of having a female there instead of a guy?

The saints row series seems to have much funnier dialouge using the female voice. Espicially the Russian voice in SR3.

PSP2 instantly came into my head. First lobby I go into and it's a guy avatar with a girl avatar "dating." I've also met two female avatars having a good "guy"talk, true story.

Don't most guys though, want to look at females? I for one would much rather look at a sexy female than a dude.

Choosing a female main in a video game is the same thing as playing with dolls instead of action figures

Very true. So would I. It's just that I guess playing as the male helps me immerse myself, I guess?
