I usually prefer to play male characters, especially if it's a Mage type character.
- I prefer to play a character that is the opposite gender.
- I prefer to play a character that is my own gender.

It depends. For a rogue stealthy thief or a mage I would use a female character usually, but for a fighter, barbarian, space ship captain, or in most shooter games I usually use a male character.
In the new COD, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Wasteland 2, I used male characters. In Fable 2 and State of Decay I used female characters.

Depends. I hate games where armour for girls are extremely skimpy and guys armour is actually decent. That's a scenario I pick males. I also really enjoy writing character stories, for example guild wars 2, where I have both genders.
