Male protagonist

Creatures theme

Player controls apparently male character.


The first video game about Male protagonist was released on January 1, 1974.

Choice of Games, Activision and Sierra On-Line has published most of these games

Should be primarily used when player controls characters of more than one gender but has no real gender choice. This is mostly due to male protagonist being the norm currently, but can be still marked for games for sake of completeness.

"Apparently male" is there to cover transgenders and non-biological entities. People who think they should be male but appear something else as such do not count for this tag. There's some exceptions to this rule however.
