Just asking because some people would consider that weird, and some not.

What do you think?

No. I don't need to look at a female digital avatar to keep my attention.

Tons of people do though they have various reasons for it. Personally I'm a guy and I play guy characters. Guys playing girl toons do it for one of the following reasons...

1. To stare at their toons rear end all day.
2. To hit on other guys and try to get free items.

And that pretty much sums it up.

I've done it before, and would be lying if I said I would never do it again!

Honestly at this point I'm not sure. It really comes down to the character models and what I can come up with in the character creation screen. Sometimes I want to make a male character but they just look awful compared to the female counterpart in terms of movement and combat animations and even modeling.

I will add that I do not and have never pretended to actually be a girl trying to get 'kids' to give me stuff. That's just wrong on so many levels.

ive done it... not sure what im gonna do yet... I dont need the visual satisfaction of staring at them its basically I think that the female characters look better in the gear male characters always look so oddly shaped and disproportioned if im gonna stare at this character for several hours a day I want it to atleast look decent rather than looking like shrek... (and I only use him as an example because he just happened to be in the add above the post)... but ya I did this in WoW once before I played legit on a private server and some dude was hitting on me and im like hey... im a dude and he proceded to calling me some less than appropriate names.. lol

I just looked through a screenshots folder I have on an external drive from games I used to play. There actually hasn't been that many characters I made that used female models, and none of them were main characters.

I remember one time when we tried out the EVE trial wayyyy back a buddy of mine sucked up to a vet player to get some money for us. I couldn't believe it.

Honestly I play female characters half the time for various reasons. None of them mentioned by the one guy above.
1 - they usually have better armor and weapon looks. Lets face it I rather play a female if they look better than a clunky male character.
2 - Gender locked classes - more than a few games have classes that are gender locked like Aikia did.
3 - Sometimes females are just better suited for a role than males. Fan dancer combat male or female? Female wins.

Lol well for the females playing females it falls under the same thing as males playing males.
Females playing males statistically speaking 50% play males just so they wont be harassed by true males.

Pretty much, however I have known girls to roll male characters because they don't want to be bugged by guys 24/7 that are desperate and trying to find a girl online.

Ehem i don't think serious players like us who want to play in a new, improved graphics, very good combat system and an interesting story game should have an argue over such trifling matters like what gender will we play. But personally i love the way females move but i make a new character based on class and what makes me "tick" like a kelari female Blade Dancer or an Eth male necromancer. It's what anyone likes !!

I don't see what the big deal. Did I give a crap and think it was weird when I was playing Samus Aran in Super Metroid? Nah. Sometimes the character I roll just makes more sense to me as a female, or perhaps I dislike the males 3D model. In Warhammer Online for example, the male elfs look like complete weenies. In WoW, the human male character model looks silly in my opinion. When I see a female character running around in an MMO I learned a long time ago to not make any assumptions about that persons gender. Not because I'd probably be wrong assuming a female character was actually being played by a female, but because at the end of the day, it really doesn't matter who is playing what. For me personally, it doesn't make a difference, I'm not looking for some kind of internet girlfriend anyways.

Well if I am able to choose between both races then I just always pick male, but I also don't mind to play as a female character if my desired class is only available as a female.

The only time i have played as a girl in an MMO is one of the free to play rubbish where they only have a female as a certain class type lazy programming!

I am a female gamer [plz no stalkers haha =P] & I have a few male alts.
The main reason I do this is because I like the way they look better than how the females do. Even though the game doesn't revolve around what my character looks like, I still want to look cool. [=
