The First Annual Gamertag Awards

Adam writes: I like video games. Surprised? Please, sit back down. Not only do I enjoy the occasional mindless excursion through the virtual worlds of Rapture, City 17, or Raccoon City, I also enjoy playing many of my games online. Ever since multiplayer became a necessary feature in most video games we've been bombarded with a plethora of clever, creative, dumb, and downright dirty names players choose to represent themselves while playing online. This phenomenon has brought many questions to the surface, like: Why is the letter 'X' so popular? Did they forget to turn off caps lock? What do the cryptic combinations of random numbers that follow many gamertags really mean? Is it the player's birth date? The combination to their safe? Like exactly how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop, the world may never know. What I do know is that over the last several years I've spent playing video games online, I've come across some rather interesting identities. Some people deserve a reward for their creativity in creating a name for themselves, while others need to be banned from playing with others until their balls drop or they learn how to form a pseudonym that doesn't disgust or confuse others. So here are my awards for some of the more memorable gamertags I've come across.

The story is too old to be commented.
