I have come across 3 kinds of gamers. There are ones that use default names, ones that use just a generic nickname for all games, and then the last ones. These people are like me. we name everything differently. Which one are you? Tell me below. Defaulters- Sometimes you arent given a choice. Games just... name you. I understand that. But if you really cant come up with an alternative to "Ash" and "Gary" on your 8th run of Pokemon Red, I dont think we can be friends. Other games like the Legend of Zelda series allow you to name... Link. Which is kinda weird. Expect this time though Link Between Worlds I named him LONK which makes the dialogue hilarious. General Nicknamers- I used to do this when I was younger. I named every main character in the games I would play "Ace". I thought the name was cool and considering my MCs always turned out to be totally badass at the end of the games, it made me look even cooler. But I tend not to do that anymore. Creative Types- This is really what I want to hear about. Your creative naming schemes. Coming up with brand new names for the characters, swapping them (naming Ash "Gary" or naming Gary "Ash"). Sometimes I come up with names that sound natural to the situation. Other times I just make things as hilarious as I can, like in Chrono Trigger. Crono - Cloud Marle - CrazyB Lucca - Vhelma Robo - HUMAN Ayla - OOG Frog - Cyrus Stuff like that. It just makes the game so much more fun when you run around Hoenn named "AWESOME" and you get dialogue like "Oh hey are you AWESOME? I've heard so much about you" Maybe I am the only one. Who knows.
