I'm just curious because I saw a preview for a game that had a female protangonist and some guys in the comment section said they wouldn't buy it for that specific reason. I found this a little odd to me because I have no problems with playing as a dude. Guys would you have a problem with this?
I've never had a problem with it. I've played plenty of video games with female protaginsts. Sometimes i even choose to use a female character when you have the option to choose the gender. Usually they allow you more than one character, so i make a male and a female, or maybe two males and a female, or two females and a male... i honestly don't care. It adds variety, if anything.
I don't see why that would be an issue. After all, girl gamers have to play as guy protagonists on many games especially older games and I can at least say I never cared. I'm sure guys won't care as much either having to play a girl.
I actually prefer female characters like Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, Jill Valentine in Resident Evil, Chun Li in Street Fighter, Kitana in Mortal Kombat, Seung Mi-Na in Soul Calibur, Ling Xiaoyu in Tekken, Tina Armstrong in Dead Or Alive etc.
I usually prefer to play with character male, and good compromise would be to have an gander choice, like in many RPG, even though that I know that in heavily story driven game it's harder to do, anyway if she would be as cool as Canoness Selena Agna, it's fine by me. :)
Not at all. Some of my favorite games are tomb raider and portal where you play as a girl, I actually like it when it's a girl because it shows that girls can be bad ass too and it's kind of hot to be honest. Lol!
Any guy that complains about being a female protagonist is going to have to apologize to me for the years of me playing as a male protagonist.
Also, I find that when you're allowed to create a character in a video game that there are quite a few guys who create female characters, so I don't think a female protagonist should bother them that much... not the perverts, at least. :P
