If you’ve followed any of my posts, you’ll know I’ve been waiting anxiously for Skyrim‘s release. Well, it was finally released yesterday… & I still don’t have it. Even though I pre-ordered it. What genius decided the release date should be on Veteran’s Day? People like me, whose pre-order was coming through the regular mail, wouldn’t get it. Mail doesn’t run on federal holidays. I know they probably didn’t do it on purpose, but thought it was a cool release date (11/11/11). The worst part is I know it’s at my post office. I tracked it being shipped there.
I should get it tomorrow, which I guess works out better for me anyway. I wouldn’t have wanted to go to work this morning if I had gotten it. But I have the next two days off, so I’ll have plenty of time to play.
But while I wait, I was thinking about what types of characters people create in games in general. Specifically, I wonder if more people create characters of the same gender as them or different. I also wonder if more men create female characters than the other way around.
Personally, I always create female characters. There are enough cool male characters that when given the chance, I want to create a cool female character. I imagine that probably more males create female characters than females creating males. So I’m creating a poll to see if my theory is true.
It’ll give me something to keep me preoccupied while I wait.
