If a game has more than four options during character creation, it has the option for you to randomize everything. In a game like World of Warcraft
, this can be somewhat manageable. Games like Champions Online
or the departed City of Heroes
will almost inevitably produce utter insanity, since you're drawing from a huge pool of random parts and colors. And that's not even discussing games that let you randomize your class or abilities, or doing so yourself through the time-honored art of clicking without looking.
But this isn't a bad thing. Sometimes the easiest way to cut through a sea of options is to just roll the dice and get something you can work into looking better. Heck, sometimes your random nonsense becomes memorable in its own right (as evidenced by Javier Placeholder up above). So do you randomize things during character creation, or is each of your characters carefully sculpted with no room for randomness?
