Top Reasons that Men Play as Female Characters in MMORPGs

AC: If you have ever played a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) with voice chat, you have probably, at least once, experienced a rather disconcerting moment. That moment was when you found yourself looking at a female avatar and a distinctly male voice was speaking to you through your headphone or speakers. If you are male, it is even possible that you have caused a similar disconcerting moment for some other player in the game.

I played a male gnome for a very long time and switched to a female human. No reason other than the female human just looked better than the male human.

Male gnome > female gnome
Female human > Male human

None of this "Omg I don't want to stare at a males ass all day" crap.

buth thats exactly how i feel about it. womans body is infinately more pleasing to the eye than a mans. thats a fact. if im gonna spend 100 plus hrs looking at an avatar, why not make her really hot.

Attack animations primarily for me. Example in Gunz the duel the "butterfly" move looked different from males to females. In an instance of playing as my male character I could do a speedy butterfly but sucked with a few things that I could do with female character. Same with the female couldn't do the fast version, but a few other things I could do. Overall I think it was due to mentality of playing, as I was trying to be abrasive with the male and flowing like a butterfly with the female.

Either way that's my reasoning.

Do we really need reasons to what we already know.
