My suite mates were watching me play earlier while they were bored, and they asked to see my character. I zoomed out to 3rd person, and when they saw I was a chick, they flipped out and all started laughing. This is not a thread about insecurity, because it doesn't bother me in the slightest (it was all friendly), it's a thread to ask why other men/women play their opposite gender in video games.
For me, ESO is the only game where I play a woman character. Why? I'm usually a nord, but the ebonheart pact zones are so bleh and meh that I just can't do it. My next favorite archetype is the female ranger. I've never played this archetype in a game before (besides d3, and only recently thanks to the new shadow mantle set), so I figured this would be the best game to branch out and it's a blast.
Why do you play a woman if you're a guy and vice-versa?
