    (This question is directed at trans people)
    Simply, if there's an option, do you like to play as cis or trans?

    I find myself leaning towards cis because that's what I want to be. But sometimes, playing as trans and not getting into any transphobic trouble in the fantasy world can be kinda therapeutic.

    Hello. Ive played a lot of different online rpg´s. If there is an option i always play female character. It just feels more right than some bulked up male.

    I mean if there's a choice between a canonically trans female and a canonically cis female. Because in some cases - usually graphic novel games - that can be a choice.

    Well. I play wow and other bliz game. I've planned on quitting for years now but raids and good frinds online keep pulling me back. I've always played female(and a elf one) because I really like most elf races in rpg. I played female before I knew what trans was even it was kinda netrual. Btw-what rpgs and mmo's do you play?

    I have a very old LOTRO account and it's a girl. My Pokemon GO character is male. I identify as a boy so I want my characters to be boys (born that way for sure). It makes me feel so much better. But I would play a game with transgender characters. I'd pick a trans boy.

    I always play females given the option. I can't really answer the OP's question because.... well, I've never played a game where that was an option.

    in the past i used to play as a trans male but now i play as cis since it feels nice for me to have the correct pronouns since i barely get them in real life

    Right now I'm cis straight but later I may or may not be trans lesbian. I haven't tried being a girl yet because my first attempt will be Halloween (see what I did?) but when I go into character customization I normally choose girl and play it off as a joke.



    Same, but if I did I would probably be trans girl and just tell my bro/frenz I'm not.
