I absolutely hated NBA 2K16. I feel like it's the exact moment that it started to go wrong by trying too hard to make a story but still call it MY Career. I mean when I'm running around being called frequency vibrations is it at all my story anymore? Besides I really feel like the gameplay got worse in some ways. The ball bounces felt entirely different and I went from dominating to not being able to make a basket at all. Still... love the other character creator system games. Haha
worst thing is when you create a character but you end up giving him/her a full faced helmet. or the character is like in some games has no option of them turning around to face the camera aside from cut scenes.
I played Fallout 3 for the first time. I was still very new to character creation, and so set out to make a boy just like me. I thought I did a wonderful job.
Well, about 40-50 hours into the game, still thinking he looked like me, my younger brother walked in to watch, and said "Why does he look Vietnamese?"
Then I saw how bad I had actually screwed it up, and turned very red.
Thankfully, theres a guy in it that can remake your face, so I fixed it right fast.
It's easier to try to make an idealized image than a realistic one, I've found. In both Dark Souls and Skyrim, I tried to go for what I wanted to look like rather than what I actually look like, and I thought it went rather well. I tried to make an avatar for my best friend in Dark Souls that actually looked like her, though, and we quickly gave up and settled for sort-of her. XD Also, some people are simpler to convey through character creators than others - when I tried to make an avatar of my boyfriend in Dark Souls (because being him is just way more fun, both in games and in real life, because he's not a morally uptight martyr who flinches at the idea of hurting someone), all I had to do was give him dark hair and eyes and make his eyebrows as low as possible. Seriously, if you look at pictures of him, his eyebrows are literally below his eyelids and partly covering his actual eyeballs, I'm not even joking. XD
Actually I have a thing about character creators, If you can create a female character then I always go for a pale skin, raven long hair, gothic beauty. I even call her Velvet if I can, and she has been in almost every video game realm from Tamriel, Londering, and Azeroth to even Post pocalyptic Boston, Terraria and outer space. she is always a sorceress or a witch of some sort and is my character to go in mmorpgs. but when there is no female option in the character creator I just go with... preset 1 because normally is the less lame one
only my skin, hair and eye colour are the real and then I try to make my character look like little fat and a little good look male character in Saint row & gta online I make a decent me character it was only little more handsome then me
When it comes to character creation I just give the controller to my girlfriend and I say babe what ever you want my character to look like do it and she does and it always looks better than any character in the game
I have many issues with character creation. For starters, as we all do, I spend a good 1/2 hour trying to decide the three basics of gender-race-class. After that, if I make the rueful decision of choosing a female character, I spend up to a literal hour meticulously constructing her face and build. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen and Dark Souls: SotFS can vouch for that. And for the last quirk, no helmet. NO HELMET. You can give me the most sound argument about how cool, menacing or otherwise simply protected my vault 101 guy would be with that Enclave Tesla power helmet on, I won't care. NO. HELMET.
For me, every character creator is awful because no matter what game I play my hairstyle is NEVER there. NEVER!!! EVER!!! It is getting really annoying how I try to make a male character with semi long curls, I make someone with my exact eyebrows, face, mouth, jaw, eyes, etc. "Let's add the hair" I think as I search for my hair. Short, short, short, short, long straight, mid long straight, "Oh, look! A curls section! Afro, afro, afro, ridiculously big afro, tiny afro, weird curly mullet thing, and I still haven't found my hair! It is SO annoying!!!
