The thing is that almost all games that do not give you an option of character creation, almost ALWAYS, it is mandatory to play as male. I'm kinda sick of it. Plus this gen it's mostly military skinhead fratbros in the pewpew games.
Playing a game with a female character is a breath of fresh air.
And I mean, it's not like you're dressing in drag or pretending to be a woman or anything like that nature, when you play as a female in a game.
Males are the dominant gender, so it's only natural that a majority of heroes portrayed in video games are going to be of that gender. I mean, irl, males are typically the ones who are doing the fighting in wars and such.
"Plus this gen it's mostly military skinhead fratbros in the pewpew games."
Mostly? Please, inform me of some characters who fit this majority in the shooting genre.
As a male, there are lots of varying reasons why I would pick a female over male characters. The most common answer I would give is pure aesthetics. That means their overall look is more pleasing or maybe the male model is just ugly.
It's not about "dat ass" for me and it's not about having an avatar represent me. It is simply, for the most part, which one looks nicer.
I didn't know that about you...yay there's another LGBT person here besides me :)
Interesting. Didn't know that about YOU either. I never ask. People never ask. Never needs to be brought out. This topic sort of brings it out, so I said it. Curious where you fit in there now.
I bring it up every now and then. I'm a lesbian. I'm not really that "out" in real life even though I've been in the same relationship for five years. People close to me know but I mostly keep it to myself. Talking about it online doesn't bother me though.
Ah, I had a feeling that was where you were in the grouping. You don't say though. Yeah, same here. People close to me know about my transness, but I am not exactly out about it sadly. WISH I was, but yeah. Only people I have told has been my mother, and a good handful of my friends. That's about it. As well, talking online about it isn't a problem for me either. Hell, alot of my online friends know. *Shrug*..... very interesting twists and turns from that even.
