I guess she is sort of a "fantasy me." I tend to keep the hair colour, eyes and facial expression accurate to me, but some of the hairstyles and outfits that I have my character wear, I would never, ever wear myself.

I always self-insert for the first file, but the second file is always an OC.

Not actually 'me' but some what like an OC to me. I usually make 'myself' with the blonde hair color and blue eyes.
I also switch between 'Nana' and 'Nagisa' as my names in most games.

they're not me, but rather just someone i project my farm life onto and identify as me within the game if that makes sense?

i never stick with a certain name either. my irl name doesn't fit in the character limit, so i can't name the character after myself anyway

The only time I felt like I was the MC was mystic messenger as I giggled in the corner flirting with Korean anime boys.

Previous Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons MCs were named after the children I do not have yet. The only personal opinion I seem to apply to is who they marry like a bad parent if I see dialogue I dislike. Some characters do seem rude to me and those are out of the question.

My farmer is definitely not me. I am far too lazy, and I can't keep a plant alive to save my life.

Nah. I always feel uncomfortable inserting myself in games, especially farming games. Usually I go with my internet alias, but for games like these, I like to make OCs (can't wait for the OC thread to come back :P).

I've named my farmer after myself fairly often in the past.

In Story of Seasons though, I named my farmer Holly, which is apparently the localized default name on Trio of Towns, funny how that goes. I'm not planning on using Holly again anyway, as my character for her was designed for Mistel, but I'm in the process of deciding a name for my farmer now. I do know that I'm not planning to name her after myself.

Joking aside, I always name my first file by my real name, then the 2nd after the MC. If the name was too big I'd shorten it (Lillian -> Lilly).

I don't either. I'd really prefer to self-insert, actually!

But it's a little bit difficult to do that when you're a guy playing as a girl primarily to romance guys. I could kinda get away with it in Story of Seasons, since the Stamina meter was generic and dialogue didn't call quite as much attention to it, but this game seems a lot more determined to remind the player that no matter how they want to look they're actually the default blonde girl seen on both screens at all times. So I think I'm going to have to give up the illusion in this game and just play as the default MC, heh.

Yeah I'm actually not a fan of the blonde hair blue eyed photo because my character doesn't look like that and I have to constantly go "Ooooh, right, that's me!" I wish they had the avatar change according to how you customize your character.

I really, really wish this as well. Or just no avatar. My MC looks nothing like the blonde hair, blue eyed avatar. IDK why it bothers me so much, but it does.

I never use my name IRL because it rarely fits (Courtney), so I tend to use my typical online persona (Dove).

Partially. I think she's idealized. Also I don't have purple eyes. :bunny:

The blonde avatar looks like a chipmunk kinda on the map and it amuses me.

Well considering the MC's mother shares my name, except I have two R's instead of one, I guess i'll have to go with another name. Also, I don't think I'd pretty cool looking, as I just have brown pixie hair cut. I guess I mean I could wear a dress, as I do like lolita dresses.
