What gender is/are your primary character/characters in game and why?
>>
Gril master race. Dudes are visually boring nine times out of ten and it's more fun to make a waifu.
>>
>>278407457
First playthrough, male good aligned warrior.
Second playthrough, female evil aligned rogue.
>>
>>278407457

Depends.

Games with Magic and guns.

Often women.

Games with swords, bows and that kinda shit without any magic.

Men, because it's too unrealistic to be taken seriously to have a women doing any of that shit.
>>
>>278407457
whatever the fuck I feel like playing, how does it matter the gameplay is generally identical in both cases
>>
>>278407457

Generally human men, if we're talking about RPGs. I don't know why but the looks of armours look more appealing to me on men rather than on women. (also fuck plate bikinis)
>>
Males.

I'm male.

It's easier to roleplay in roleplaying games.

I've played female before, I have nothing against it.
>>
>>278409212
>fuck plate bikinis
Faggot detected. Go back to tumblr.
>>
Male first run.

Almost always all female after that.
>>
I just play both. Depends largely on the character creator.
>>
>>278407613
This, except I always pick a knight (or whatever feels the most heroic) for my first playthrough.
>>
I always pick a female character to empower the female presence in the video game industry. Not enough games let us play as a female and it makes me sick to my stomach. A woman can be just as strong as a man.
>>
Depends on wich one have the best style.

usually male, but when I'm playing bioware games I choose girl characters because it is hella awkward to flirt/getting in stealth romances with other girls.

>mfw I still can't figure out what triggers the morrigan romance.
>she somehow always complains that it's cold at night
>>
Both, male first or female if the armor looks better.

Does anyone else feel like their character is stronger when male? I always feel weaker playing female especially if they are shorter
>>
Almost always play as a girl.

Girls are cute and I like to look at cute.
>>
MMO -> female
people are a LOT nicer with you if you have a female character

times I have been harassed online : 0

I always play as a male if the choice is given.

Unless there's stupid crap like gender locked classes.
>>
Male. It's easier to identify/roleplay with a male blank slate character for me. Same reason I usually play as a white guy.
>>
>>278407457
1st run is self insert powerfantasy, so male
2nd run is autistic headcanon run could be either one depending on what I come up with.

Other runs who cares I'm picking at random at this point.

Or I'm playing Etrian Odyssey and I'm just the noncombatant explorer mapping the dungeon and giving battle instructions with a bunch of lolis.
>>
male because I'm male
>>
>>278407457
Either Male human or male dwarf.

Because I'm a male who likes self inserting and sometimes dwarves because dwarves are awesome.
>>
>>278407457
Both, got tired of making male characters in all my games, tried out female ones for the different dialogue choices, quests, gear, etc.
>>
>>278407457
It really depends on my mood. If I want to play badass I go for guys if I want to play cunning I go for females.
>>
>>278407457

>Skinny
>Maybe tiny
>RedHead
>Blue eyes

>Glasses
If not
>Delicious brown
>Short dark hair
>Demn tights

Usually female because they look better
>>
>>278411434
Pretty much this. My first or main playthrough will always be human male if possible because I typically try to play as an idealized version of myself. I can understand why people would choose otherwise but for me immersion is the most important.

Magic School Bus, I am not mexican, but Carlos looks a lot like me
>>
>>278413209
5'11, so nah.

Also, you do realize the whole manlet thing is just a joke from /fit/ right? Board culture, you'd know if you actually went there.
>>
>>278413209
Wouldn't manlets do the opposite? they're insecure about their height so they'd pick qunaris?

Am I mistaken here or is this guy an idiot?
>>
Male.
>>
>>278407457

>Female because I want to stare at girl ass all day

Is not an acceptable answer. It's such a latently homoerotic phrase it's practically a gay pregnancy test.
>>

You sound like a real Carlos pundit

Women most of the time since the models for men are almost always overly muscular troll-looking motherfuckers. This however doesn't mean I like nasty sluts in only a couple small patches of clothing.

I like bold, slender characters.
>>
>>278407595
This nigga gets it.

Especially in BioWare games, where I want my qt created waifu to enter a wonderful lesbian relationship with one of her companions.

Isabella a best.
