I am and always will be a huge gamer, and a female one at that. Sometimes I play RPGs, Role Playing Games, and I rarely play as a female in those games.
Role Playing Games are made to give you a fantasy world, with in which you play as you like. It's a 'role play', and you play it however you like. Again, I've been a gamer for a very long time and have been playing games online such as World Of Warcraft and other 'World of warcraft'-esque games (MMORPGs, Massive Multiplayer Online RPGs.)
