I was talking Zelda with some friends the other day when I came across someone with a curious pet peeve – he felt that Link’s name should not be changed or it would break the flow of the game during dialogue, and that people who changed the names were “casuals”.

Obviously, most people are less extreme and less focused on roleplay, but it’s true that preferences vary wildly between players. What do you think?

Does it feel more natural to you to keep the default name, or substitute in a name of your own? Does it even matter to you, or do you just insert a word that spices up the dialogue and makes you laugh?
