Would you prefer a male or female main character?
I'm interested to see where they take the character, having a female lead is definitely new for FF (aside from X-2). I think as long as they make her a respectable person and lay off the teenage girl cliche's, XIII will be just as good as it would be with a male lead.
Female, since there hasn't been an FF with a single female lead. The closest was Terra in VI, but that game doesn't have a real central protagonist. I hope Lightning is actually the main protagonist and they don't go the XII / VI route and have no central focus - I much prefer the notion of the hero/heroine and his/her comrades.
"Metal gear would not be the same with a female, nor would it hurt having a male Tomb raider (as in Uncharted is a great game). So i guess i prefer males. But i always choose females in rpgs/mmo's and games where you have a choice."So you're a man... but you pick female avatars to display yourself online to everybody else playing the game? You know how many creeps there are in MMOs that want to dance with your avatar while making humping noises through the headset? I don't, but I'm sure there are a lot. :P
I have the feeling they only choose female to attract more horny little teenagers (am serious).
Cuz the main character in FF13 is more badass than any FF character i've ever seen (she is even more imba than sephiroth, just check the trailers, jumping/flying around like superman at age 20), and its a girl....
A male doing all this would be more plausible to me.
"dont realy care as long as the game has a good storyThis person wins.
But FFVI was a fantastic game and primarily featured Terra and Celes in the spotlight...
And in a genre that is oversaturated with cliche JRPG main characters it's actually nice to see a Final Fantasy game with a female lead character who doesn't look like the max damage she will be able to do is 40 at level 99.
I think lightning would be a great main character, and afaik it would be the first time a FF game had a female lead.
But really as long as the main character in FFXIII is not quite as annoying and boring as Vaan I'll be happy...Good is he(she/it) freaking annoying..
"I prefer female leads in any game. They feel more real and caring.I actually agree completely, In Mass Effect i have a couple of character, the ones that are good or neutral are all female, while the evil one is a male.
But if the lead is supposed to be evil then.. go ahead and make it male :3
