Yeah it seemed weird to me that good Coles name was just Cole McGrath and evil Coles name was just evil Cole McGrath

I agree that both should come with sort of a prefix. Calling one "Evil Cole" while calling the other just "Cole" seems to convey the message that the path of good is the 'true way' to play, while the path of evil is merely an alternate take. The whole point of Infamous is that it's all up to the player. No one way is more 'right' than the other. I like the "Infamous Cole" vs "Hero Cole" idea, just like in the game's Karma meter. Maybe taking out his last name on screen would make it less awkward and less 'cluttersome' (not the announcer; he should just say "Cole MacGrath!" for both)

 

...Or on the flipside, have both labelled as just "Cole MacGrath" (with the obvious picture differences being enough to help differentiate) and have the announcer say "Good Cole!" vs "Evil Cole!" I actually like this one better, come to think it.

in most games that let you chose good or evil has the good sie as the true way, but infamous is different than most as in you can continue the second game from the evil side of the first game

Good Cole should be "Well-Mannered and Likeable Cole"

 

Evil should be "Incredibly Rude and Rambuctious Cole"

I thought it was weird cause the entire point of the InFamous series was that the "Evil" Karma path wasn't really evil it was just selfish and aggressive... It was suppose to be ambiguous which made it cool, now it's just evil? Meh.
