For me any games, I'm not the main character, I'm not Geralt and I'm not Baldur's Gate hero and I'm not Venetica female hero.
I'm sure that's the case for you - but that's not the case for me.

Identification with the protagonist is a huge thing for me, and I'm immediately turned off in practically any game if I can't identify with my character. I can't play robots, monsters, or RPG races that stray too far from humans.

I'm unable to identify with females. It's not a cerebral reaction, it's an empathic reaction. It's out of my hands.

But I'm not complaining about that, I'm simply stating that I can't play an RPG with a female only protagonist. I can't even play Diablo with a female character, despite the minimal RPG features.

The only games I've managed to play to a significant extent with a female protagonist - were some of the early Tomb Raiders. Mostly because they were incredibly impressive, technically, and I was able to focus on the puzzles/exploration - and the character interaction was minimal.
