    If you had to be like Wizardry, what game would you name yourself?

    Continuing the time-honored RPS practice of obsessing over the individual known as Wizardry, I thought of a good question. If you had to choose a game from the past with which to name yourself and introduce into many discussions as a good example of Things Done Properly, what game would you pick?

    I would probably pick Asheron's Call and bring it up during any MMO-related conversations! I would talk about how lovely it was that it introduce a world where combat was possible and items with unique properties existing, and didn't really worry about setting too many "rules" beyond that. Everything was really freeform and you felt like you really had to learn about the world (especially if you avoided knowledgebase sites), and that you might scratch out a living almost anywhere instead of being confined to one or two level-appropriate zones. Also, portal storms! Best lag-handling measure ever.

    Howzabout you? What will your new name-that-is-a-game be?

    Deus Ex would be a terrible user name and Homeworld too, so I'd probably pick Morrowind.

    To be fair, the obvious answer here is Wizardry, right?

    Sadly it's a stupid name, otherwise I could name myself after the greatest RPG of all time, and be known for evermore as Mass Effect.

    Spore could be an ok username, but the game itself... *shudders*.

    Outcast (though i'd probably just call myself "Ulukai" or perhaps "57th greatest")

    For the "one game to rule them all" it would have to be :
    Slaves to Armok: God of Blood Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress
    but that would be a terrible name.

    The best forum name from a game I could come up with so far was either Foot-to-ball Manager or Supreme Commander.

    Tempted to say Worms?
