It depends on the game and more importantly what the powers of said character are. I have no problem playing as Princess Toadstool/Peach if she has a better moveset than Mario for example, lol. I've never really been hung up on that. In SF2 I like to play as Ryu, in MK as Sub-Zero, but in Killer Instinct my go to is Orchid.

I like to play as females in games, especially those with customization options. I always wanted to be a fantasy artist like Julie Bell or Frank Frazetta but I kind of suck at drawing and painting, so I only get to design cool female characters through video games, mostly. Sad but true :)

 

In fighting games and such of course I always play as both male and female characters. Scorpion, Raiden and Mileena are my Mortal Kombat favorites, Cammy and Vega my Street Fighter, and so on. I have no problem with games offering only male characters if they're badass characters (Ryu Hayabusa, Kratos, Nathan Drake, Doomguy, etc.) I'm not a big fan of the bald (or short-haired), bland soldier characters that were so common last gen (and are still present in games like Elex). 



I do when playing multiplayer. A perceived advantage because they're smaller. I know the hitboxes are the same but I do it anyway.

Rarely do I do it for single player. DA:I comes to mind. I'll usually just go with the default character. My Commander Shepard has to look like the one on the cover.

It's funny, mine didn't until Mass Effect 3 rolled around, and then everyone picked femshep to be the same freckled redhead I had been playing all along. It was almost like they plucked her from out of my game, ha. 



As many others say, Depends.

I usually go for default. But if the game is fully customizable character then I choose a man because it fits my theme the best. If the game has voice acting I generally choose a woman.

Example: DQH2 gives you 2 choices a douchey guy or a short pink haired girl. I, of course chose the girl.

In the first DQH I didn't like the girl much so I chose the guy.

I play as female characters a lot. Generally speaking I think they're more interesting. It does depend on the game but when all things are equal I usually choose the female.

I'm a male and I always choose males but of course I have zero problems playing as a woman.

Same here.



Never really unless I have tried all other players or if the game is like tomb raider or super peach.

If there's a character customization tool I make a character that's like me: male.

If there are several playable characters, I pick the one with stats/attributes that match my playstyle. Sometimes it's a male character, sometimes a female character.

If there's no choice in the matter then I go with the flow :)



Always a male character. Quite simply, I identify as male.

If I have the choice, I want to experience the game through the eyes of a man, not a woman. Especially if there is romance involved, like in Harvest Moon and recent Fire Emblem games.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
