Why I play girls

Posted: June 5, 2012 in roleplay

I had this chat with my husband yesterday and he basically asked me why I don’t have any male toons in WoW.

It was a good question and I thought about it for a bit. I think the biggest issue with male toons is the lack of immersion for me. I can’t really identify myself with a male character. I find the female characters more fun to play.

Now I’m not saying I dislike male toons. Take the worgen for example. I think the male toons are far better than the female ones. (seriously, don’t get me started about the rabid Chihuahua head that the females have),  but when male worgen shift back into their human form I just want to curl up in a  ball and die. No, I’m not a fan of male human toons. They are boring and have porn moustaches.

I might as well make this into a little list of favourites and all!

Alliance males:

  1. Worgen (only in worgen form)
  2. Draenai
  3. Nightelves
  4. Dwarves
  5. Gnomes
  6. Humans

Horde Males

  1. Tauren
  2. Trolls
  3. Goblins
  4. Bloodelves
  5. Undead
  6. Orcs

In all honesty, I prefer the Horde male toons a lot more. I used to have a male Tauren and Troll and I adored them. Unfortunately, I keep having the immersion issue. I lose the connection with my toon as soon as it doesn’t have any boobies.

I have to admit though that this might change in Mist of Pandaria. I was incredibly enthusiastic about the female Pandaren, until this week when I heard her voice. I hate it. Where the character looks bouncy, fun and full of live, almost anime-ish, her voice is dull, bland and sounds like an old woman. It just doesn’t fit the character.

Now the male Pandaren voice is fun to me. I giggled when I heard some of the things he said and in all honesty I don’t mind the character models at all. So perhaps MoP will make things different for me and I might have a male toon in my list of characters to play.
