Alright I'm a close to normal guy, but I've put almost 21,000 hours into the Fallout series and I would say about 3/4 of those 21,000 hours I played as a female, and now I find myself playing as a female in almost any game you can. My friends think I'm weird or quote "gay" for doing so. So I guess what am asking is what do you guys and gals think of it?

Now, I play a female in basically every game I get a choice. Sometimes I refuse to play a game because I'm forced to be a male (Fable). If I'm given a choice, I always select the lesbian romance option.


I imagine that you will probably find this a silly question..but my curiosity is peaked...why do you play as a woman and always choose the lesbian romance option?

Playing a female character expressly to "do lesbian stuff" is also objectifying and homophobic.


Whoap..this one is at me. Or maybe not. I'll address it anyways.
I was like 11 when I did that..I was new to the whole "Hormones" thing. I had no full concept on objectification of women. In fact, it wasn't even the women performing the act that intrigued me..but the idea of the act itself.

The comment itself was merely a joke. I really only did it a couple of times..but know that the action is somewhat of a common thing among some.

It's actually a pretty good one. It's a long story. It's complicated. I don't have a nice answer really. If you really care, you should swing by CT sometime.

I have no problem with guys playing as girls or vice versa. I honestly prefer to play as male characters, even as a girl, not because of a preference. I just tend to have more guys as my favorite characters. Whenever my friends are over and play video games, they tend to choose their gender. I more or less do not care which I am, I care about the stats and such.

I go as a male character every time unless they are preset characters like in dead island then if they have the skill I want I have no choice but to go with that character otherwise as I am male I go with a male character because I dont want to be a girl so I see no reason to go as a female character I think if you go as a girl then you must have some urge to be a girl so I do think it is pretty gay tbh otherwise you would just go as a male character.

is it gay that i like a female figure over a male figure when i am a male myself?

A couple reasons to be a girl character.

1) What partydevil said.
2) People give you things (lol)
3) In RPGs, there are often different plot lines for different genders.
4) Does it really matter? It's a game, get over it.

I can see how objectifying a person is bad, but video game characters always looked more similar to objects than to people, being inanimate strings of bits and stuff. So I'm not too sure what is the problem with objectifying an object. I think I would find it much weirder if one treated a female game character as an actual woman.

For me it's just a weird thing... I know girls who are ACTUALLY gamers.

1) Good point but still your playing as a girl
2) Why the hell would anyone do that because your a female character
3) But you would be missing out on the male plotline if this is so I personally have never played a game where the plotline is majorly different it only ever varies a tiny bit from the games I've played
4) I'm just helping people come out of the closet

People who play MMOs are sometimes sad, desperate people. What a shock.

and that makes me gay?
liking a female over a male when your a male is gay? thats weird.
i'd say playing a male is more gay. looking at a muscular guy all the time and playing whit him. mha what is the fun in that?
i rather look at some nice curves then muscles.

2) Why the hell would anyone do that because your a female character

same reason why people do that in real life.

4) I'm just helping people come out of the closet

HAHAHAHA xD oh wait.... your serious, arn't you?

I see nothing wrong with playing as a girl, I fail to see how it makes you gay, or means that you want to be female, or . . .

I can understand the reasoning behind not wanting to look at a male figure for 50+ hours too (at least, in good games).

But for me, I like to be the character in the game, that is usually the objective of those big huge RPG/Adventure games (ME for example). The only time I would use a female character is if they have better abilities. (example from a game I have played, Heaven Besieged (a custom map in SC 2), their are several heroes available, several of which (the archangels Seraphiel (Nova) and Raphael (Medivac) as well as arch-demon Abbadon (kerrigan) are represented by female units, and most heroes are balanced, so choosing these characters would make sense.

Also, in the campaign for Heart of the Swarm, Kerrigan is just awesome.
