    the male/female ratio on MapleStory has always been quite decent. I believe this is because of the 'cutesy' aesthetic that the game presents.

    Maybe girls just don't like using Forums or answering polls lol.

    But it shouldn't matter what gender we are. Whats important is whats on the inside and being good Maplers.

    It has always baffled me why people are so obsessed with gender in MMOs. It's as if some guys view every female character as a romantic or sexual interest who could potentially steal their heart and they have to be so so careful to avoid that "Oh, sorry man, I'm not into guys" moment. Like, having to imagine every female character you encounter as being a guy just to prevent yourself from accidentally taking romantic interest in a guy is so strange to me. Y'all shouldn't be trying to date over an MMO to begin with.

    For years I've had both men that hit on me and men that accuse me of being male in real life. In both cases, these men are seeing me as someone they'd want to date, just one going with the assumption that I am female and the other going with an assumption that I must be lying to them (cause if you didn't want to date me, why would it matter if I was male?). The unending thirst is so ridiculous. Like, chill. I'm here to play a game, not hold hands with everyone who sees my colorful character and finds her cute.

    If only guys understand how we feel and not get angry on failing to get what they wanted. Like seriously, can't they let girls have their own fun without being hit on? :(

    i was expecting a higher amount of men but i suppose women just tend to be quieter in MMOs because of the nature of the communities.

    i'd also include a third option for "other" in the poll because there's a lot of non-binary folks out there who play video games

    Always depends on the type of game being played. MMORPG's tend to have a higher ratio of females:males compared to other games. When I was leading a clan of 80 people of that around 15 were females - roughly the same as the poll.

    Usually if MMOs are gender locked, i play whatever the class i like, but if not i usually play male characters if the customization for males arent garbage, but maplestory doesnt disappoint with anime style for males, for for MS im going Male :)

    Wow... so few of us. In MS1 back in the day more than half my guild were females. I was hoping it would be the same in MS2, but the poll results are kinda disheartening. :(

    You know your post made me realize that this thread and the "playing as the opposite sex" thread are interconnected.

    I have a strong feeling the people who take the most issue with what fictional video game characters other people play as, are the ones that are the most thirsty about hooking up online.

    These more recent posts make me remember my fun times in Mabinogi.

    Where I got so tired of people hitting on me that I pretty much dragged a random, non interested friend to the marriage hall just so
    I could say "I'm taken" to anyone that tried after that.

    He didn't survive the wedding.

    In the end people still hit on me.
    Or only talk/"be friends" with me until I one day mention I have no romantic interest in them.
    Then I mysteriously never hear from them again.

    I'd like to make my character a boy but very cutesy and feminine to the point where it'd be hard to tell, like an actual trap. The problem is... I don't think I could stand having a character like that with the male voices they give us. None of them sound androgynous...
