And, truth be told, so do we...

Eurogamer's Alec Meer ruminates on one of the most accessible joys of the MMORPG category - character creation in NCSoft's City of Heroes and City of Villains.

Of all the MMOs in all the world, there's no happier moment for me than logging into City of Heroes after a few months away. Not into the game world - just the character selection screen. Laid out for me there is my curious history with the game, a half-dozen angelic, demonic, mutated, comical creations all of my own. No-one else in the world sees the same screen, and that never fails to excite me.
