How Character Names Change the Narrative Experience

Choosing your character's name can have a huge impact on your fundamental experience with a video game. (Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, Culture, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber, PC, PS3, Retro, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Dunno i left the default name because i want to live through a story ..

The only games when a Character name had any impact was ... suikoden 3 and persona 3/4

Persona because i had so many things to do it wasn't just a story i was following anymore

Suikoden 3 because i was creating a previous legend ( those who've played know )

Otherwise i prefer the regular name ( why change CLOUD name ? There is nothing to do with the characterafter wards aside équipement )

I always use default names.

Me, too. Occasionally I'll use my own name, but that's just my ego talking. =)

Almost always use default names except for games where I fully create my characters from scratch.
