    Guys playing hulks

    Why do you guys like to play male characters that are bulky, massive ?

    Noticed this alot in swtor back in the day, where the nr. 3 body (the musclebound), was most popular among trooper players, looking a lot like a clone army.
    Rift has its bahmi and WoW has tauren.

    So why ? What's with the the fascination for looking like a house ?

    Most of the guys playing bulky characters are going to be warrior type classes. To many people bigger equates stronger. Not always the case, even with muscles.
    That being said, I pretty much exclusively play female toons.

    Personally i only play the "hulk" type character when its a game with something like a barbarian or berserker which can wield 2hand weapons.
    But I would guess it might be something with them looking stronger. Also armors tend to look better imo on a big guy.

    What's with the fascination with the other way people play? Is there some reason I should limit my options in a video game?

    Is it wrong to ask why? If you don't want to tell them, don't answer.

    Was it wrong to question his question? I even made it a point to use wording like his to capture the same tone...

    If I could play a tiny Tauren, I would in a heartbeat. My Aion character was just as small as I could make it, and virtually every Warcraft character that I can make a Goblin is a Goblin on my account.

    Yep, sometimes I go for bulk in a warrior, but frequently I go for female toons because developers tend to make guys too hulky.

    I play female toon also -I think that if you take the biggest character model, you will be the first person targeted in the BG, maybe Im wrong tho

    If I'm going to play a badass warrior that can single handedly take out groups of enemies, then he better well look the part. It would feel out of place if he were whimpy.

    I made a tauren warrior because people tend to target bigger characters first, and I'd rather them target me than my squishier guys. Of course he's a dwarf now, and though I guess you could say dwarves are hulky, they arent the biggest model; I just love dwarves. And I dislike Draenei.

    Conversely, my warlock is a gnome.

    The problems in SWTOR with bodies 1 and 2 is they were a tad "too" small.

    There wasn't a happy medium between 2 and 3.

    I like to be lean and agile looking, but with some muscle to me, I don't like playing huge hulky characters, except if it's another race/being, like a tauren.

    That's why I choose to play a Blood Elf, not too tiny, got some solid muscle on em, but def very agile and lean looking.

    I actually prefer to play with slim male characters, especially if when playing a rogue based class.

    Because SWTOR body type 3 was perfect for a male Trooper. It makes you look dope; why the hell do I want to be a small skinny guy carrying around a giant gun?

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.
