Agreed. I just play with how good my build is.
I agree with both quotes.
I'm a guy and play both Male and Female characters, but I don't see them as a representation of myself.
This is FANTASY folks it's just a game it doesn't matter if your Male or Female player and choosing the opposite sex.
e.g. I've played a lot of Tekken and I play characters due to the way they fight and how I can handle the characters.
But here in D3 you have the option to have the class as either Male or Female but the only thing different about is them is the character model, voice, how their armour looks on each of them, but they virtually play the same.
Just because I'm Male player I see them as ANIMATED characters it does NOT represent me.
If I see a Male or Female player choose ONLY their OWN SEX then I will say they are pretty sexist players out there that take their own sex far too seriously in games.
I've been playing games since I was very young boy and I don't care about gender of characters in games.
In most cases I choose the character I think looks the best character design.
So for me it's about "Art" and "play style".
When you have been a gamer for so long you look beyond gender and see it as animation.
I guess that's why I have been a anime and manga fan and like to play games.
Also Mary Elizabeth McGlynn is the voice of the Female Crusader and also does the voice of Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell.
And so I'm a anime fan so I know Mary's voice very well.
I also like Crispin Freeman since he does the voice of the Male Wizard.
Crispin Freeman has done HEAPS of voice acting in anime and games so I'm a fan of he's work.
So voice acting can also play a part in choosing characters.
But I rather play both Male and Female characters because I like to experience what they are both like.
