Just finished watching the Dark Souls en....Load Our Last Souls stream. I was thinking about this before, but Vinny mentioned this on the stream. What do you name your characters? Are the names significant at all or would it be all the same if it was just "AAAAA..."?
Personally, I like taking time to think of names I wouldn't mind seeing throughout the game.
A couple of recent names are...
Link Between Worlds: Ryppi (This is my username on the 3DS as well). It's just something that has a bit of my own name in it. I think I used it in Dark Souls as well.
Persona 2: Kailen Shunoku. Nickname: Kaiju....yeah. Started this recently.
Tactics Ogre LUCT: Ryssunha Quo. Again, a bit of my own name in it and a bit of a fantasy character's name in it (sort of).
I think I played a couple of pokemon games with Zed as the name for my trainer.
