Ok so I am female and play as a female. I prefer it as not many games have ladies on as the main character. Plus I like making myself haha.

What about you guys?? I am interested what lads do?

Yeah, I like playing my gender as well. But I do see guys playing as girls and vice versa. Would love to see their reasons if they reply to this thread, always kept me wondering :P

I've played both (achievement whoring)


I switched back to my own gender (male) after I unlocked it though. Personal preference I guess

I'm a female and I always main with a male character, although I do sometimes play a female on the second or third run through. My reasoning is that, first of all, I've been playing the same guy since SR1. His name's Maxwell and he has a cockney accent. I just see him as the actual boss, you know? And my second reason is because I just can't see a chick being the boss. I'm not sexist or anything of the sort. I hate gender roles but I just honestly see the boss as a male. That and it irks me to see my female character towering over the other NPCs.


Kinda unrelated but I friggin' hate how people use SR and games similar to it (ones that feature a create a character) to make their female characters look like big breasted freak shows just so they can get off on it. To me, it just makes a mockery of the whole game when I see that. The people of DA are the biggest perpatrators of this crime.

Am a guy,and always like to play as female (in games where it´s available). :) Guess that we men who does that,has the motive of prefering watching women protagonists in action; it´s the 21´th century,and bet both genders like the strong equality of status which exists today in both games and movies alike. :D I don´t feel gay because of playing as a gal char,it´s just nice to watch them kick butt. :)


In both SR2 and 3,I made 2 save-files; one for a char made to look like myself,and the other for the femme fatale one.

I play a girl because I am a girl. I always pick the female character when I'm given the chance. I have a save with a male character somewhere, but I never play it because I just don't find it as fun. To each their own, though.

I usually play as male first and then switch to female. In this game especially I feel like it caters towards female characters more at least in terms of customization.

I'm a guy, and I play as both. I seem to play the males as more careful and strategy-based, whereas the females always wind up as more deadly and vicious.


This goes somewhat back to one of my favorite games - Tenchu: Stealth Assassins and its sequels. I loved playing as Rikimaru (one of my favorite characters of all time), but Ayame (the crazy evil girl ninja) was just so much easier (or so it seemed). All of Rikimaru's skill and honor paled considerably to Ayame's deadliness, speed and amoral attitude.


I should also say that real-life experience may have also curbed my thoughts on this. When I and my guy-friends play games, we try to use at least some decent tactics for strategic reasons. However, my gal-friends can best be summed up by my most frequent female game partner's famous line "Tactics? Pish, when all else fails, I just wade in with pistol!" and she wins.Undecided

I'm a guy and played as male the first time through, but I've played through the game about 5 times now. So I played the whole game as both genders and sometimes went back and forth between the two.
