Choosing a name.

Hmmm.

 

Does choosing the name include receiving all the powers that those characters have?

 

If it does I choose Ryu from Ninja Gaiden 1

 

Reasons

 

1. Ryu, a nice and simple name.

 

2. I get to dress up as a ninja

 

3. I get to wield the Dragon Sword!

 

4. Jump and Slash, most overpowered ability ever.

 

5. I have the ability to cling to walls.

 

6. I get to hurl enormous boomerang shurikens bigger than my entire body.

 

7. Irene is pretty hot for a 8-bit lady

 

8. Later on I get to go one on one with the ladies from Dead or Alive. :wub:

 

9. I will be free to hate birds because they take 3 bars of health off me.

 

10. I get to dress up as a ninja.

I think I'll go with Ganondorf again.

 

 

Ryu is a good name but I already dress up as a ninja.

 

Also: Isn't Irene dead?

 

No I don't think so. If my memory serves me correctly she supposedly dies at the beginning of Ninja Gaiden 3 killed by Ryu no less, but later it turns out that it was just a ploy to reveal some plot or another.

 

She dies in part 2 but the Dragon Sword saves her. WOO Dragon Sword! :wub:

That would be Luxor from my all time favourite game. He gets to rule the known world and the name is easy on the tongue. Even a non-english speaker like me has an idea of how to pronounce it :wub:

There are no video game characters which already existed when I was born that I would wish to be named after at the time, seeing as there were almost no video game "characters" before I was born at all.

 

Nor would I wish to later assume a video game character's name, by any means. I think it would be terrible. As far as things with which to culturally identify one's person in the most meaningful of ways, I'd hesitate to use literature itself, much less to use video games (and there has never been a video game in all of history whose characterisation can hold a candle to even the minor classics of the written word).

 

If I were compelled to choose a video game character's name, I'd choose one which could otherwise be interpreted as not being that of a video game character, and never tell anyone its other origin. Something of Christian or otherwise Anglo-Saxon origin.

DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

Whoa, I think you're taking this thread a tad bit too seriously. :lol:

It's been ages since I've played BG II, but let me see if I can still do this: Thaxll'sillyia or maybe Nizidramanii'yt. :D

Though with a name like Torak Skullsplitter (IWD II), nobody would mess with you.
