I typically go with male. I've tried playing as female characters in games like KotOR and Mass Effect and I just can't connect with the character; which I think is important in an RPG to get the full effect of the game.

I couldn't even make it past 10 minutes with female Shepard. Her voice sounds like nails on a chalkboard to me.

Most of the times i play a male character. But i see nothing wrong with playing a female sometimes.

Let's be fair here. The male Shepard's voice acting was 10 times as bad. Female Shepard was alright.

From what I played of Mass Effect 2 I have to agree with that statement Graeme.

Kind of depends on the game. In games like KotOR, the choice is really aesthetic. I really dislike games where I can't choose my own dialogue, or the dialogue I'm given is retardedly simple minded.

[COLOR=orange]It may be poorly written, but still. Which action or dialogue BEST describes what you yourself would actually do if you were in that situation?[/COLOR]

I definitely love KOTOR 1 and 2 (although 2 was unfinished... very disappointed by that) and The mass effect series...

I Usually pick a male character that fits the personality I'm planning to play as.

First playthrough I always make decisions as I would make them. And I make it a VERY through playthough. I even save before each branch and then reload to see what happens with the other choices... I'll always go with my first choice, but then I know what is ideal for additional playthroughs.

Mass effect 2 (First Playthough, no wikis etc)- I didn't lose a single crew member(that includes my... yeoman :) ), and by the time I was done nobody had anything left to say to me (even legion).

I ended up with about 75-25 paragon-renagade. (Damn talky krogans... I knew that guy on the station was lying! Giving that krogan the fish made him so happy! etc lol.)

Then, I always try the female side of the story... why waste half of the game!? (Atton's remarks to female Exile's questions are so much more fun :D )

As far as other sexualities... I turned mordin down. :shudders:
