I was sitting in my pal Jamey’s room trading Pokemon back and forth and playing around in the Entralink, and we heard light knocking on the door. When I answered the door, the kid looked right past me and began scanning the room with his eyes.
“Who are you?” he asked.
“Ovada” I responded.
“YOU are Ovada?”
He was looking at the Poke-stalker app on the Pokemon Black/White game.
What he seen was:
Female trainer in the area
I assume his rage was from sexual frustration or something, lol. I wasn’t what he wanted to see when he walked in the room. But hey, I play female characters, what of it?
He said “You must have some sort of fantasy of being a female, cause you use females”.
Iiiih, not really. I use them for one really simple reason: They look better. Well, maybe another reason-
When I see a normal looking female avatar I made easily lift up a sword the size of an limousine and swing in into a dinosaur, I am greatly amused!
Here’s an anime example from Soul Eater
In Pokemon’s case, it was simple. Look at the trainers.
To me, the male looks pretty blah. But just looking at the female’s posture, grin and poofy hair- I decided to stick with that one. How could you not love that sprite?
Anyway, maybe I come from a generation that has no issue discerning virtual reality from reality.
What do you think? Is it really a big issue to use what looks pretty? Or do I always have to pick a male because I’m a male?
