Species choice

Other (objects, etc.) concept

Player can choose the species of the main character.


The first video game about Species choice was released in 1984.

Atari, Beamdog and SSI has published most of these games

See also: race choice.
This also includes "race" choice for games that do the scifi/fantasy error of calling species as races (though they also often allow interbreeding between every species as well). Generally races (caucasian, asian, etc.) aren't applicable.
