I'm Special Darn It!
No one wants to be just like everyone else, but has it become a trend in MMO developing to make things easier, by making cookie cutter characters? With character skin creation, race choices, class choices, and achievement points are we really getting enough to make each of our beloved characters truly unique? Savanja takes a look at character specialization with her article "I'm Special Darn it!".
The first aspect of making your character your own, is within it's birth. I have always been vocal in regards to my opinion that while the creation process of character models are okay, it certainly did not meet up with it's full potential. And I hate to draw that same old comparison, but it is a must in this topic. Stars Wars Galaxies. It has a character creation process unlike any MMO on the market, and while it wasn't enough to save a clearly dying game, when I first stepped into that game, it was the first (and last) thing I was wowed by.
