Funny to think that some low-profile gamers would believe that games like BF or MW are sexist for not including females, even some girls sadly, but for games like Halo and Gears of War, including fitting female characters, soldiers or Spartans, it quite
worked. But just to note here, it's just a gender, I guess it's enjoyable sometimes.
In Reach I would go for the female character if I was trying to look like Kat, or otherwise to look slimmer in the hopes of being a harder target to shoot. I remember one guy got pretty mad for whatever reason, and started sending me messages, assuming I
was actually a female... some people assume too much.
But, I couldn't care less if a shooter portrays women on the frontline. Makes zero difference to me.
