    Here's a more interesting survey for the members of our forum community:

    Are you;

    a) A man.
    b) A man who pretends to be a teenaged girl on these forums so as to draw attention to yourself.
    c) A woman who pretends to be a man so as to avoid unsolicited attention  on these forums.
    d) A boy who uses these forums to  pretend to be a man.
    e) A bunny with a  pancake on its head.

    Am I the only one who never understood the whole, "I play a girl toon because I like a nice scenery" statement? It's just so weird. Yeah, I find women more attractive than men, but I don't want to play as one. I want a huge menacing characters with a huge axes, dripping in blood, guts, and testosterone.

    If you'd have said "waffle" I would have chosen E. You're biased against waffles! Bad person!

    "What is it I have against Microsoft, you ask? Well, you know how you feel when you wait for an MMO to come out and when it does you feel like you've paid to play it's beta test for another 6-9 months before anything even thinks of working the way it should? Being a network engineer you feel that way about anything Microsoft puts out."

    f) A waffle.

    I never quite got that one either. I mean it's not as if I stare at my characters posterior the entire game. I will, however, own up to playing female characters from time to time. My reasons are usually a little more logical than "I like looking at girl butts"

    1- I may be roleplaying siblings or family members.

    2- In the case of WoW ALL my caster classes were female. Why? Becuase something about a mage who looks like he could benchpress three orcs on a bench just did NOT look right to me. If the character customisation stinks, as it does in WoW, I may pick classes and genders by the pure physicallity of it.

    I make both kinds of gender characters.  I mostly like variety, but yeah, the eye candy is nice as well.

    1. Male

    2. As a male I only really play male characters because I like to be "attractive" to the female players and characters. I know that sounds pathetic but it helps to increase my enjoyment of the game as well as the immersion factor. Same reason I almost always play a human in MMORPGs. I like to view aliens as aliens and that is hard to do when you look just like them.

    Bonus: I don't really like pie actually, or rather I could easily live without it. I don't mind cream pies but I am not a fan of anything too sweet.
