Five of the Best is a weekly series about the parts of games we overlook. We’ve discussed a diverse bunch: crowds, hubs, potions, mountains, hands… They’re the things we take for granted while we play but then, years later, find lodged in our brains. It’s only then we begin to appreciate how important they were. So let’s celebrate them.
Character creators! How long do you spend in them? Do you pick a premade face and just breeze through? Do you pick a template, tinker a bit and then settle? Or do you adjust absolutely everything, take all evening and it still doesn’t look right? I feel your pain.
