It totally beats me why games offer to ability to use customized names... IMO, it spoils the storyline.
And I really REALLY hate those games that do not even have default names, or where you have to look them up in the manual ^^;
Maybe if the surnames could be chosen as well it would be different. But as it is in most games, I see no reason to call my character Henk or something...

Much support for DEFAULT names here, and because i don't use them i thought i react Smile Why u say? Haven't got a clue.. I use my own name as the maincharcter and friends as the rest of the charcters. Moa will be happy to know i ab(used) his name as the cat-type-charcter in FF#7 Wink Yeah, so what? He got that same goaty LOL!

And ok, it's nice to have the DEFAULT names if u want to look it up in the spoiler guys! Big smile gotchaaaa! Big smile

However euhm.. I don't know why but I felt the sudden urge to discuss this so uhm.. when you play a computergame.. do you use default names or your own (or made-up) names and why? Smile

Why not? More of these threads are great to me! every aspect of gaming, computers and MSX in general are worth discussing Smile

That would be Red XII then, the only one that survived to see the 1000 years of peace. MOA had a good pick Smile

But like many others here I keep the original names, I don't really understand why they put that option in at all. I find it an insult to the character designer to change the names, I'm not messing with someone else fantasy, that's just...plain wrong man! Big smile

And for the love of god, if they would finally get rid of that option, dialog in RPGs could include the main characters name in RPGs. Playing Final Fantasy X for 200+ hours without being called by your name just once is weird.

I, MOA, want to save thee, my princess Sarah from all dark evil! Together with Rob, Dino, Syb & Han (they always fit the characters, somehow), I conquer the world and save mankind from all... urr... shit.

Got that!?

p/s: I also appreciate the option, because I know it takes more effort to implement the stuff.

Just as a follow-up on all this names stuff, what about the length of names in more general action games? In the past and still on some arcade machines u can put a three-character name as alias...others have adapted the longer names option..

Which one do you prefer? Should the 3 character alias make a huge comeback?

nb. My longer name for games at the mo is Nitecreature, shorter ones i use include ADB (my real initials) or NXT (dunno why Smile )

3 characters is enough 4 me Smile For hall-of-fame stuff, 3 characters should do. In RPG's it's ofcourse much handier to have some extra space. 8 characters orso.
