I very rarely use my real name for games.  Katharina has been my gaming name ever since I picked it as my name in German class many years ago.  I've grown rather fond of it.

I also want to use my real name so it's a real experience.  On my Wild World file I used a nickname I randomly made up and over time I outgrew it/hated it and couldn't change it because my file is over 5 years old and I had so much progress.

I like to use my real name, or at least a nickname of it.  =P

I like to use "Amykins" so that it seems like the animals are really talking to me, but it's off enough so that if the say something weird I'm not creeped out by it.  XD

I do. I just want it to feel like it's actually MY character.
Although, of course, I let my villagers give me nicknames in City Folk.

I used my real name in my first town. Then I decided to make up names, The last two towns I've used Kaylee, though. It's still me, just not my real name, LOL!

I like to use a made up name because it seems more like a fantasy.  I will probably go with the name Poppy and my town will be Puddleby.

In my Wild World town my name is Sprite, but I want to use my real name in New Leaf because I want to make it feel like my character is really ME and I'm actually doing everything that my character is doing! I'm even going to make my person look like me in real life. My name is Apryl and I have brown eyes and brown hair, so that is how my character will be too!

The character is not me. While using my real name would not violate the separation of reality and fantasy within my mind, it also frees me up to explore other names and see the effect they have on others and if others like them or not.

I'll use my real name in AC games.

It adds a sense of realism and being a sim, it's essential to feel like you're such character.

I'll definitely be using a fake name. I've used the name Ireny and Juliet in games for a long time, so I'll be choosing one of them (Probably Juliet). I haven't used my actual name in games since I was little and used it for Zelda: OoT.

I haven't used my real name in previous games, but I think I will finally change that for New Leaf. It's probably better that the animals call me by my real name anyway.
