    So I've been playing Oblivion lately which I've pre-ordered back in highschool and suddenly became interested in how people play these types of rpg games... eg. Fallout, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Vampire Bloodlines etc. etc.

    I for one like creating a Heroine since I like to play these games in a third person perspective. I enjoy watching a Heroine with an attractive personality who is also easy on the eyes but not so easy ;) as opposed to a masculine hero unless of course I decide to play in first person /flex.

    So you're fapping to a female version of yourself?

    For me it totally depends on how I roleplay them.

    With third person games(I always play RPGs third person if there's the option); I'd rather watch a girl's ass bounce around the screen than a guy's, but that's just me... :rolleyes:

    Like Sheva in Resident Evil 5; I was in love, I couldn't think of anything other than sex while playing that game.

    I thought it was illegal to create narcotic substances? :p

    For me it usually depends on the game. Sometimes I make a male character and sometime a female, based on the game's background story or the gameplay or the equipment.

    Playing a female hero makes me feel so gay for some reason. I mean in online games like WOW or such, specially when interacting with other people. I also feel the same about other male dudes playing females on multiplayer...

    And I feel the same about all those here that have a swexy femenine FORUM AVATAR, sometimes there's no way to know if it is a female or male member, it happens all the time.

    And some avatars are soooooo swexy I really want'em to be just.... that, hehe, be careful.

    why no poll? fail.


    i always go the heroine, cause i'd rather spend hours looking at a fake chicks ass than a fake dudes ass. same for the voices.

    and yes, i watch lesbian porn because i fail to see the fun in seeing some other dudes wang.

    I usually play a Hero first, but I always go with variety after the first playthrough anyway.

    To elaborate, I've already made significant "background information" behind my primary hero, especially when playing games in the Forgotten Realms setting.

    I also have some experience in RPing in forums, so there's a blueprint already for my "usual" character.

    In Fallout 3 and New Vegas, I generally stay true to the titles "Last, Best Hope of Humanity" and "Messiah", although in Fallout 2 I've sold my wife to slavery already. LOL

    This poll is sexist.

    I always play games as a post-op transsexual, who also happens to be a transvestite, better known as TheMailMan78. :D

    In all seriousness, who cares? I pick the character who looks the funniest or coolest, in that order. I did really enjoy playing as that hot chick in MGS2:SoL. :D Also I don't play MMORPGs.

    My heroines tend to die quickly because of a certain lack of torso armor.

    Because of the way I play I choose the hero. As MRCL said, heroines die too quickly.

    :laugh:

    I loved first Tomb Riders, Drakan, Blood Rayne, from The Longest Journey, and also I like to play again with female characters in games like Mass Effect 1+2 or Dragon Age, because of slightly different dialogs and stuff.

    But not on MMOs...

    Almost always play a Hero, I play these types of games to be and look badass, if I wanted to think I looked sexy I would role play with dolls.

    I used to play with a G.I. Joe (with Kung Fu grip, mind you) when I was a kid but back then, for appearances sake, they were called action figures ;)
