Why play femshep?

Voice acting. Meer upped his game for ME3 but Hale wiped the floor with him.

Didn't read the thread but here's my answer anyway!!

Because nothing changes between Male and Female shepard, So playing as FemShep is a very good example of a multidimensional, empowered, interesting female lead in video games.

It's a push forward for feminism in vidja and it's a breath of fresh air to see a female being a badass leader and commanding respect from male subordinates.

I could go on and on with examples but the point has been made; Because feminism in video games is GOOD!

Jennifer Hale is one of my favourite voice actresses in the world along with Laura Bailey.


Naturally, i'd rather listen to her save the world than Maleshep.

Jennifer Hale is an amazing voice actor and Mark Meer sounds way too Canadian.

Boobs, come on, admit it, that's the only reason we'd ever play as her. Voice acting? HAH!

Well, I was a little sad when I found out the new yeoman lady (can't remember her name right now) in 3 is a lesbian and won't have sexy time with me. If I do a second playthrough, that'll at least be one reason to try out a femshep.

I always did it just to see the alternative relationship options lol you can learn certain things about characters you wouldn't playing as just male or female. I mean it's not earth shatteringly different but it's different.

Wow, you seem like a sad person.
To play video games for boobs is sad and a act of desperation, especially when there's so much free porn on the web.
Not everyone is like you, tough guy.
Jennifer Hale is a prolific voice actress, I honestly didn't like Meers much, but that's me.

Alot of people play role playing games to escape from reality and indulge in a good story and universe, some people don't like to create themselves in games, some like to play as a completely different person and even sex.
Grow up, buddy.
