Could also be a trans-woman egg living her inner fantasy in some cases!
This is one of the dumbest things I've seen in awhile.
Logical gaming mechanics reason"… Surely most men lie to their spouse in an attempt to hide the simple fact that we prefer looking at something pretty if we gonna be staring at it for hours upon hours.. This was the dumbest crap i've heard
Nah i always make all my characters look like Ryan Gosling (me)
Exactly! If we are going to spend dozens of hours looking at a character then we want it to be pleasing to look at and hear for that time.
Yes, but, apart from that, I choose games where the main character is a woman because they are usually more fleshed out than male characters. Also, it's overall nicer to play with a female character. My exception is D&D, I don't think I'd make a good female character.
Because he can…..
Me a trans-woman hearing all those excuses I gave for playing female characters all those years…. yeah those were the reasons I wanted to play female characters sure.
I prefer men
or they're trans
I remember asking my friend why he plays as female characters and he simply said something to look at.
Male characters are usually ugly. My mains in games i pick for enjoyment as will be a dude but alts are for esthetics depending and ill pick whatever look good… or if i have like 10 character i want some diversity personally.According to my friend tho picking a female character=trans
I usually dont have female chars except in games like wow etc. because I like customization and transmog, female chars unfortunately still have alot more varity there.
Or they are trans and they don’t know it
i play male characters because i connect with/see myself in them better is that not normal
If I have to stare at a toon for god knows how many hours then it needs good jiggle physics or massive muscles OR BOTH.
Its also cause men are simps, they are more likely to not kill you if you look like a girl
I don’t know i always thought that was weird.
Pretty fucking hot
Some fighting games had more move sets for the small characters. And you get to build the strongest dream girl we can imagine.
I asked my husband if he likes playing as female characters and he said, "No, because I'm not a woman. Plus most of the time I'm in first-person anyways."
(One time I convinced him to play as a woman in Mass Effect just to see if there was any difference and he said "ok but I'm going to make a Karen and do an evil playthrough because fem shepherd has a mean voice" 😂)
Awful explanation overall. It's even more simple. Because they're hot.
And we enjoy a sexualized avatar to control.
Because it's fun.
If I can’t make myself for immersion or close enough in a game, then I instead intricately make a pretty female protagonist instead.
If it’s an mmo where I have multiple avatars, I’d then also have other males, e.g. a Santa Clause tank for example. lol
Girls do the same thing, it's not that weird XD
I play as a female character, because i modeled her after my gf.
If I'm going to stare at some video game character's ass all day, it's going to be female.
On games like call of duty or fortnite the smaller hitbox thing doesn't even apply iirc. I mean take fortnite for instance all the weird and oddly shaped character models and only female skins have smaller hitboxes? The crash dummy has smaller limbs and head yet i dont hear about it being OP. Design wise the hitboxes would all be the same anyways. Assigning unique hitboxes to individual skins would be alot of work anyways, plus then the question of pay to win would come into play since of course skins can be purchased. Tldr skins are purely cosmetic and do not affect the hitbox of your character in cod or fortnite.
It was because I was trans sooo
Lots of factors go into gender picking for me. The story, potential love interests, voice actors, gameplay effects, and appearances. I’ve never been able to design a male Shepherd I’m satisfied looking at and prefer her voice so I always went femshep, for example, but Garrus is my favourite character to romance too.
hes playing cod you cant make your own character on cod lmao
Men don't just like pretty things on women. Decorations on male characters usually looks ugly or is very masculine. We were taught that only women should be pretty, with a pink character everyone's going to call us gay. So a female character is the only option.
In from soft games I just find it funny to be a dainty small girl and put all levels into strength and carry round a gigantic club that weighs more than the characters body and plonk gods and demons in the face it is just a silly aesthetic for when the game is all serious and fantasy worldy
Recently been playing baulders gate. All my guardians are female and I subconsciously make them look like my wife. Was hilarious when she realized before I did
Well, modern men gamers who does these are betas and would love a female isekai for themselves
thank you 😅
I lile girls, cute girls. I not gay so i dont want to play a man, get it?
i always make a male character first, comes from my childhood when id play in the forest with friends, we'd pretend to be heroes or halo spartans or knights and wizards, so i'd usually make my character a man and then i can play as them both in the game and irl, tho as i got older, while i still primarily play a male character when i got pokemon x (the game where they added character customization) i played through my second playthrough as a girl, because they have may more customization options, more hairstyles, more clothing options, often involving new types of clothing not available to male characters (e.g. skirts, dresses, thigh high socks, etc.)
I play literally everything. Because at the end of the day, the character is just a character in a game. Not me, not someone I know. I could play as a gay hamster with a cowboy hat. I like playing different roles in a game. That makes it fun.
"if you ask most men … ". You're just making that up. Pretty sure that most men will just say that they do it because it's hot
I do it because it’s a psychological thing, but the games I play people tend to treat those they think of women with less hostility. I don’t know why they assume it just cause you make a female character, but it works and they look better.
My wife definitely has a smaller hitbox, if you know what I mean 😂
nah, in one of the fallout games you did more damage to men as a female and in the game there were WAY more man enemies so it just made sense. even though that feature isn’t in many games i still pick it for that reason
Depending on the game it can also be a matter of voice acting. For example mass effect, dragon age 2+Inquisition, swtor. A lot of people prefer the female VA’s.
When the first Pokemon games came out that let you customize your avatars, I tried out both to see what was available…the girls has so much more nicer outfit, clothe, and hair options. I eventually just kept on playing as the girl.
“Female characters have smaller hitbox” in what game is this the case? I play all kinds of competitive games but I’ve never heard this one ever. If your boyfriend told you this, he lied to you.
This sounds like a self-reassurance video. If you feel like you have to justify why he plays as a female character, you’re already being weird about it.
My reason is simpler. Personally I just like changing it up in RPGS with a female character since there's so many male leads in video games
Sometimes the female character looks more interesting than the male
