What name do you use when a game asks for one?

Which games make best use of them?

Why I use "my peanus weenus" of course!

hahahaha
MY PEANUS WEANUS

I haven't played such a game in a while, but next time I think I will take up the mindset of CIA and name my character after the game itself.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

MY PEENIS WEANUS

If I'm lazy I just name myself after what some other characters would call you ingame. So Doodle for MH4, because the guildmarm calls you that.
Otherwise I put on my mask and banepost my way through the character creation screen.

I make a female character and name her after the first hot girl who comes to mind.

Ian Perez

If it doesn't have a default name, I just use a random name generator

Before I found out about those it could take me up to a fucking hour to name my character, and that's if I only have to name my character and nothing else

Depends on the game, if the game shoehorns the player into a relationship (Demon Gaze) or some semblance of a personality (Tactics Ogre) I use the canon name. If it's a completely empy shell then I'll self-insert and name the character after myself.

Joseph Price

I'll self-insert and name the character after myself

I can never do this without feeling like a turbo autist

self-insert
This only works in certain games. In most fantasy games it's really jarring to have someone call the MC "Dennis" or whatever the fuck.

It's less about living vicariously through a game and more about getting stuck on a choice and instead of thinking 'how would this character act in this situation' you think 'what do I think is the right choice'.

Usually either the canon name or my name. Really depends on the game. If it has two genders for the same character (like recent Fire Emblems) I have a girl name I'll always use if I play a female.

I have a girl name I'll always use if I play a female

TRAP?

I know, I get the logic behind it, but every time I try it I end up regretting it immensely and cringing internally every time I see my name on the screen

Brandon Young
Brandon Young

Either my username or some random word but in my mother language. Usually the lack of accents hiders this.

Wyatt Collins

Oh god, no. I just like to switch the gender up if I'm going to play a game a lot (or if the animations/voice for females are better), and I usually use a specific name when playing a girl, because I like how it sounds. Plus I'm not fighting to think of one for three hours, this way.

For single player shit, I generally just go with whatever.

For multiplayer, I tend to opt for the scientific names of flowers or insects.

Aiden Cook
Aiden Cook

Depends. Fantasy games I have to have something that fits the theme. But I end up feeling stupid by having something like "Gavalast" or "Darladdius"

Any other game, "Sexton Hardcastle"

Gabriel Hughes

Either my waifus name if I can play female or my Steampunk inspired alias I use online.

Angel Turner
Angel Turner

I'll name the character after myself if the game has a self-insert protagonist.
Otherwise, it's the default name.
I also use the default names for party members.
