I’m fairly new to the COG forum, I guess you can say long time reader, first time poster, and I have been hopping through some WIPs, alot of them really reaaaallllyyy good. Like, I’m sad that this isn’t a full game so that I can experience it in all it’s glory, instead of teasy little nitbits, good. But I noticed for a few of them, that you can’t name your MC. Personally, that’s the trademark of a COG, creating your own persona and a part of that is the name. I don’t feel as connected to an MC named Jack, as I would an MC with my actual name. Maybe it’s just me, which is why I made this poll to see if I am in the minority, or the majority on that.
By the way, as I said, first time poster, so if there is some sacred forum rule that I have broken by making this poll, lemme know so I can fix it, or delete this. If not, pick an option or reply to let me know what you think about MC namesakes.
- Have an predetermined name for your MC
- Choose your MC’s name
- Have a predetermined name for your MC but choose a nickname which they can be referred to
