I work with a bunch of high school age boys and they’re all obsessed with video games. All I know about these video games are their names… because my brain shuts off as soon as they start going into detail. Minecraft is a really popular one and in my head, I lumped it in the same category as World of Warcraft.

So I pictured the main character of Minecraft like this:

steve one

But then someone told me that the main character in Minecraft is named “Steve.” So this is what my mind did:
steve two

“Steve” is just not an epic hero name. I was disappointed and confused.
