Most of the times I choose a male for the first time and if I do a second playtrough I do everything the opposite as my 1st playtrough so I pick a girl to who ends up being evil. So I have no problem with it.

Btw I are you sure you played it 21000 hour. Because the game was released in 2010. That means if it was released on 1 jan 2010 and we say the date today is 31 dec 2012 the game was released 1094 days ago. That would mean you have played the for 19 hours a day. So I hope it is a fault and you meant to say 2100 hours.

Fallout New Vegas was released in 2010. He said the Fallout series, as in including the first games in the series. Although I really doubt he has put over 2 years of playtime into the Fallout series.

Some guys have 40k hours in WOW. So don't think that 21k is impossible...

I think you misconstrued the question, I do think that Prizrak was asking "what do you the AG gamers think of a guy in real life playing as a female character in a video game?"

Yep I did now that I've reread it with a fresh mind.

I use a few female characters in Brawl, and in more in Tales of Symphonia and Vesperia.

Well it is an RPG: Role Playing Game.
You take a role of someone other than yourself. This character doesn't have to resemble you in any way. I don't think this is weird.
I've known many guys who picked the girl in Pokemon Gen 3 because her waistbag looked "cooler" than the backpack.

I think it's understandable, in my opinion.

In every game I play where there's some type of character creation or customization, I create my "Ideal" Character.

Your ideal character just happens to be female, sometimes :/

I see nothing wrong with playing as female characters.

Sometimes, male and female characters have different stats and whatnot.

In FE8 (Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones), for example, males have a higher strength cap than females if they are units that use swords, lances, etc.

On the other hand, female magic users have a higher magic cap than male magic users.


So yeah, it goes to preference and stuff.
If you want to play as a female character, go ahead.

My friends think I'm weird or quote "gay" for doing so.


what? you rather look at a girly figer then an buff dude.
i would think that watching buff dude all the time is more gay.

i like to watch girls. i do that all the time.
why would i want to watch a dude when i play a game?

Well in some games I do pick the other gender if it is useful. Like for this one game they can shoot you in genitals for a man which would be considered a Nutshot, but being a girl....
Yeah, for the same game, I also picked a girl because they have slimmer body figure meaning, it is less of a body mass to be shot upon. And I think they are faster. (That's a myth though).

I only pick it when it has benefits, but if you can't switch genders I would get a guy.
