    What about the people who just use the 'random' button? Or the other lazy kind who just put all the sliders to the far right of left?

    Eh good read but I think this only scratches the surface. I think it would be a good article if it was written by a few people, a few guys and a few girls. I've made myself in games but most of the time just use attributes of me like my beard while making my character. I enjoyed Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 because you can get your face into the game if you have a Livecam. Hopefully later versions work with the Kinect. My characters can be any gender, any species, any attributes, quite random in fact depending on the game, mood, gamestyle I'm planning.

    Im a mix between the clone and monstrocity. I make myself, then morph him into a freak of nature.

    I always go for a Mr T pity the fool!

    On a first playthorough, it's The Clone for me. That way I can really relate to my Fallout character when I'm making heads explode.

    i do match alot of the weird qualities. but surely its just fantastic to have a touch of eccentricity in your personality, keeps things fresh.

    Guild Wars reference = Best article ever.
  • papergoon - January 14, 2011 3:04 a.m.

    @Murderapolis WTF? Okay that was actually funny. XD
  • soren7550 - January 14, 2011 2:03 a.m.

    I think I'd be a mix between 'The Dream' and 'The Badass' since I just go for something that I think looks good & cool.
  • CoktorBloktopus - January 13, 2011 11:10 p.m.

    Yeah for creating the raging bad@$$ in all video games. All you need is a tattoo or an awesome scar
  • Ilyere - January 13, 2011 9:42 p.m.

    I go for the Clone, most of the time. Yeah, how original am I?
  • Mode - January 13, 2011 9:23 p.m.

    I always make either some sort of mysterious-looking dude (Psycho Mantis-esque), or some really hot female character who may or may not be Psycho Mantis-esque. I like Psycho Mantis.
  • StealthyMangos - January 13, 2011 8:07 p.m.

    yeah # 6 should definitely be asian, since I've made an asian in every rpg I have ever played... but that would fall under the clone, since I'm also asian

    oh,fine.i character in tri is a badass as almost crapping his pants at the sight of a jhen moran can be
  • MattMk2 - January 13, 2011 4:26 p.m.

    What about what I do? I just use the default character.
  • Y2Ken - January 13, 2011 4:06 p.m.

    I generally make myself in football games, and a random (but normal looking, probably closest to badass out of these) in most other games - Fallout, Mass Effect, Smackdown and so on. Then in Sims I make just an average looking dude depending on how I'm playing. Sometimes kinda suave, sometimes quite scruffy, occasionally a little tubby. Whatever I'm feeling would be fun.
  • Pirazha - January 13, 2011 3:38 p.m.

    @codzprc Same here. When being Male gives you advantages, like Oblivion, i am nr. 5.
  • Snowyjoe - January 13, 2011 2:57 p.m.

    You forgot one factor. Theme: Creating a character and giving it personality and character that based on the game world
  • philipshaw - January 13, 2011 1:43 p.m.

    Interesting article, I think I try to make the character look like me and if the game doesn't let me do that then I will go for the dream version
  • fueler335 - January 13, 2011 1:22 p.m.
