In the wide field of MMOs, there are great character creators and there are… there are the less-good ones. You know, the ones that give you the choice of three faces (one of which has to be “old crone nobody picks”) and two shades of robes. The ones where developers mistakenly think that players will be more invested in their gorgeous game worlds than the piddly avatars they create.
I’m always happy to experience a robust character creator that lets me fine-tune that perfect character. Even World of Warcraft is stepping up its game with more character optimization choices come this fall’s expansion.
But today, I want to hear what you’d love to see in a character creator if you got to call the shots. What would it look like? What elements would be important for you to include?
