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?

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


Because they assume you are female as well.

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


That's quite offensive, and not at all true. Playing as a girl does not mean you are gay.

I recommend talking to Xzeno about this..he seems the most fit for putting you in your place

I like to be the character in the game, that is usually the objective of those big huge RPG/Adventure games

depends on how you see it.
let's take the elder scrolls for example:
if i just play as myself then i always use the same skills and same options in dialog etc..
i for 1 find it more fun to think of a char. and give them a personality befor hand and play the game as if i were that person.
i can play myself everyday in real life already you see. (that sounds wrong xD )

I guess that makes sense.

So basically, you do this.

"Who should I be now, oh, I know, I will be a (insert random race) who likes to use (insert random weapon(s))"

"Who should I be now, oh, I know, I will be a (insert random race) who likes to use (insert random weapon(s))"


more like:
i'm going to be "a pissed of mage" or "a friendly thief" or "a fighter that can't make decisions very well"

i once had a super friendly (orc) fighter that only used a warhammers and unarmored. he liked to talk whit people but didn't want to get involved in the problems of others. so he often decided to not help people whit their quests and only do those quests that didn't involve pissing someone of in some way.
but then he become a vampire. but i didn't know that untill it was to late.
no one wanted to talk whit him anymore and they thought he was some kind of monster. he didn't like it that no one wanted to talk because that was his most favorite thing in life. so he made a quest for himself. and it was to kill literally everyone that didn't want to talk whit him. and untill today he has only found 3 people in all of morrowind that wants to talk whit him. all the rest is dead.

thats the story of my super friendly vampire orc. xD

i like to build some background story when i build a char for TES games (and some others) and play the game as them, not as myself. =)

i like to add i more thing, sorry for the triple post.

also it's fun to change some obvious things. like for example the friendly thief:
one would normally make a khajiit or wood elf for their skills. but it's also fun to just make a kleptomanic high elve. he would then be very high of themselves because.. well hey, there is even high in the name of my race. (at this point already thinking like him =P) and he will do everything to keep his name for the good of the people but mostly himselve. because he is kleptomanic, he feels deep inside that he is wrong and just leaves everyone behind whit just a penny. he is constant bringing people stuff he stole back to people he once has stole from. NOT to his rightfull owners of course but he switches all their stuff. he can't imagion what will happen if his, his name will be in the same sentence as stealing? oh no, he has to much proud for that.

and thats basically how i make a character for those kinda games.
now i have to go and instal oblivion again, to make and probably play him.

to just make a kleptomanic


All of my characters are like that. Half of the books in Skyrim are sitting in my house. I have around 800 iron arrows, but I keep stealing them from guards. Because I want more. I don't even use bows.

i mend real kleptomanic, in it's worst form.
he will clean out entire rooms whit people still in there, eventually.
and dumb allot of items in houses i return to for some reason.
and picking it up on my 3rd return. etc. etc.

why? because that is what this character would do.
but i guess that he will try to avoid going into houses after some time. to try to stop his. "strange behavior" (when i get tired of doing it.)

I don't mind playing as a female character at all as well especially if it's online, you can get free stuff.

As a girl, I usually play with a female avatar in a game (obviously), especially in mmo's, but in single-player games where you can choose between either gender, I sometimes choose male characters.
For me, the character that I control in a game rarely reflects who I am personally, but is rather a character that I've created and am role-playing, so to speak. So it doesn't really matter whether it's a male or female or whatever character, because it's not supposed to be a mirror of your own self.
Especially in games where the choice between male and female main character has an impact on the story, such as in KotOR 2, or provides with a different set of skills, such as in countless RPGs, I tend to play first as a woman, then as a man.
Besides, I love having my character strip to his waist and punch everybody and everything with his bare fists. And you don't get quite the same effect if a female character is doing it...

I admit, I have done so before, but only in Monster Hunter and Mass Effect 3. But I think everyone has a profile for each gender in RPG's, but I could be wrong.
