    Character Creation

    'Skin Tone: the same as mine.
    "Character Size"?
    Let's just get through this.

    Hair Style?
    Here is already a problem with this game: way too many choices!
    For few minutes there, we were in the wonderful new world
    and now I am doing my taxes!!

    Eye Color: Brown.
    Eye Height?!!
    This is madness!
    Can we move on? Let's go!"'


    Summary:
    • Character Creation is as boring as doing taxes.
    How to improve:
    • Add the "Randomize Avatar" button to Character Creation.
    • In further iterations (R33-R34) of the "Randomize Avatar" button, players could choose what to randomize, from the Avatar's face details to hair and skin tone and eye color.
    • Add the "Start Over" button to Character Creation to reset the sliders, skin tone, hair style, hair color and eye color back to where we started from.
    • Change the string "Character Size" to "Avatar Size" or to "Avatar Height"

    I like choices. Choices are good. More hair is good.

    A randomized button is a good idea for those who want to cut to the chase though. Seems to be a standard feature these days.

    I just tried Dragon Age (the first one) for the first time last night, and enjoyed how similar the character creation was between the games! Except they did have presets, making all those other sliders not as hard to use.. a randomize button would be neat too, but some presets would go a long way.
