It's weird since I usually always use my name with Zelda games, but Link just felt more appropriate this time

@kgtennispro I'm exactly the same way. Stayed Link this time around though.

Always have used that name, at least on my first run. Maybe on a second run I could name him a joke name

I always use Link and still will when December 25th rolls around.

Good Poll!

I always use my name... I think I have used the name "Link" once in A link to the Past but all the other play throughs and other Zelda games I played have had my name on the save file. It's me in the green tunic - I'm the hero - *shrugs* I guess it just puts me more in the game. This is an added plus as there is still no voice acting. I think it would be weird for me to be called "Link" from some voice actor.

I always use Link. Takes me out of the experience if they're calling the Hero of Hyrule: Carlos.

Always use Link.

@kgtennispro @Cryojin

Same here. I'll often use my real name for the first play through, but this time I decided to stick with Link. It's the default name this time, so maybe that's why.

Link just because it's...Link. At least the first time through, but then again, I will always know any of the Zelda heroes as Link.

It'll always be Link to me! Although, my wife usually makes us do "LINK" in all caps as some kind of homage to the days when lowercase wasn't an option =P
Posted: 11/22/11, 22:40:26
Link, as always.
Posted: 11/22/11, 22:41:36
Link always for the first run. Stephen for second runs and on.
Posted: 11/22/11, 22:47:12
Link! They defaulted it for me so I'll stick with that.
Posted: 11/22/11, 22:49:29
For me it's weird not to name him after myself, I've been doing it since I first played a Zelda game. So I named him 'Mikey'
Posted: 11/22/11, 22:53:27
Link. I usually use the default name on every game. Except for Final Fantasy VII where I always rename Aeris to Aerith.

Usually I go with "Dude"

Same (except the Carlos bit ). If I'm ever doing a second playthrough I might use my own name just because I'm not bothering with trying to force the immersion since I already know what's going to happen, but my first playthrough is always Link. At this point in the series it doesn't make sense to me to try to imagine that Link is my personal avatar into the world of Hyrule. Link now has his own personality and characteristics. He makes decisions in cut scenes that I wouldn't always make. He's no more me than Mario, Snake, Batman, etc. are.

I always use my name whenever I can. Adds more immersion or something.

So, to be more specific...

I always use my name in Zelda and Pokemon. For everything else, default.
Posted: 11/23/11, 00:36:37
I used "Rob" in Ocarina of Time one time; my 2nd run and everything since has been "Link."
