There you are, sacrificing yourself to save the galaxy in one questionable way or another, and they can't even include your first name on your memorial plaque. Even Anderson got his first name on there! Rude, you guys.

Well, it's at least a bit better than "insert player name here" Shepard.

ps. Of course Alenko's the dead one. XD

I beg to differ

@Sharp-Claw: I beg to differ I'd rather have had the insert player name show up even more with Cmdr on it shortened.

@zenat: The other way to look at it is that SOMEHOW NO ONE like EVER asked 'hey what's your first name? and now that you're dead why did I never think to look it up in your service record?'

Funny thing is, when in inquisition they included my name (in war table reports) I always got the wtf does it means, who are they adresing reaction. For some reason I got so huge dissonance when they didn't use my title. Maybe because no one speaks it. I hope game studios in the future will include in their games fixed version of Fallout 4 name-speaking mechanic.

I must admit, I never remember my Shepard's name(s). It's more like - ah, my infiltrator Shepard who romanced Liara!... or something like that. I think for at least 10 minutes every time I start a new save for a cool name, and I forget it for the next 40ish hours...

@Robert Archer: Nah, I meant literally "insert player name here"...I admit it was quite a weak joke.

Why did they give you an option for a first name anyway, for imersion or something ?

It's almost as bad as Chakwas' cop out of an explanation: 'I don't use your first name because mumble mumble respect! Yeah! Go the Alliance!'

@Sharp-Claw: Haha but that would be a very long sign indeed XD

@Robert Archer: It is kind of sad that multiple people insist they are going to name their children after Shepard... and yet no one knows their first name.

@mamiser: Fallout 4 was great, not going to lie, I got way too excited at having lucked into one of the recorded names.

@ChronicAmnesiac: Not going to lie, I tend only to remember my first character's name. But still!

@Guest: Yeah, call outs like that are honestly my least favorite. I'd rather the game itself would pretend like it didn't happen for the immersion's sake if nothing else.

@schtinsu: There was not, but I am not going to argue against the premise ;)

...am I the only one who actually named her Shepard 'Commander'? I just thought that Commander Commander Shepard had a nice ring to it, you know? Although it made it tricky to know when to yell at people for acting too familiar and using your first name...
