GAME / Which sex do Japanese gamers pick for their video game characters? The results may surprise you

Video games have come a long way since the days when you were forced to play as one specific main character. If you were a girl who didn’t want to play as a boy character, or even if you were a boy who was tired of playing as a burly man, then your gaming options were limited.
