That's cuz baldies are awesome man. I mean, Kratos and agent 47, you need any more examples? Cool

That really wasn't the point. Sure, they are great for the game they're in. But when you see over ten games, and in every single one, the main character is a guy with a shaved head - it should get old. But for whatever reason, it doesn't.

And it's not just movies. Half the male main characters of TV shows and movies, are short haired or bald(though there are exceptions). And it's usually a joke if a guy has longer hair, or its eventually going to be cut at some point, if not shaved off.

I am a highly aesthetic person, if it's not aesthetically pleasing I won't play it. For example. If I ever play a Brujah in vtm:b, it won't be the male because he has no elbows. lol.

Another factor, is the roleplay element in rpg. Sometimes a male makes more sense for the concept. Sometimes a female does. And sometimes dialogue is different, which can be fun.

Brujah was the first character I played in VtMB, but I didn't like the skin very much either. I think I've only played the Malkavian male once, because I dislike that skin, too. The ones I like are: Ventrue male (very cultured and aristocratic... fits the character), Malkavian female, Both Tremere (although the male has no neck lol ), and the Brujah female isn't bad. The Toreador are too posed and prissy; I can understand why Gary doesn't like them. The Gangrel... no. Just no. The Nossies are well done, but the phrase "aesthetically pleasing" doesn't really fit them, does it? Smile

I tend to be a 'function over form' kind of guy, but there are times when the form meets the function so perfectly that it's almost like art. Wish Bloodlines was one of those times. Neutral I love the game, although I wish there were a lot more skins available, both for the characters and the pedestrians. Even for the bums... all of the bums in the L.A. area are apparently cloned from two people.

Hmm, most CRPGs offer the choice to customize your character's looks. However, the engine and the developers themselves can be quite limiting. A good example is NWN, which also has a very large community where you can download skins and other whatnots. Bloodlines also has them, but you have to do it manually and still comes as very limiting.

In any case, on the character models. Some are pretty horrible. Female Brujah? She looks more like a baby than a babe with her bonnet. Tremere? My favorite, but the male's clothes just don't fit the mage archetype. The female Tremere is much more fitting. Gangrel? Well, dreadlocks are a turn-off. Nosferatu, well, they are Nosferatu.

CE made it a lot more bearable on the eyes. And some tweaks better fit the clans.

Oh wait, the topic is originally about your playing style with gender right? I usually play male, and since they don't "bounce" well, I stick to first-person-view. Also another reason I opt for guns.

LMAO, dang I knew I'd seen that guy somewhere...it appears that I've seen him EVERYWHERE! Just one unimaginative clone after another, I can't for the life of me, imagine why I have been gravitating towards using female toons in my single player games for awhile now Razz

Poor bums, situation is definitely due to the limited gene pool in Bloodlines that the bums have to recreate with Razz
