A list of some of the most common Gamertag categories
It seems that alot of gamers lack imagination if i had a dollar for every 007 based tag id be rich biatch. Winable toaster was amusing and original . love to see things like earbus was killed by an ingrown toenail or bond 2007 was killed by poor hygiene.
A name is just a fn name. To me, there is no need for rhyme & reason why one chooses a name. Some names are funny, weird, strange same but different spellings....man I cold go on all day. What's important is "you don't cheat like some mofos", "Be respectful" and you bring your A-game for multilayer.
mine is SoftcoverMilk. I couldnt recover my solidus187 since I no longer have the credit card so I dont really care what mine is. If I chane mine it will be f@cking ridiculous and Id rather not have people online take notice of me untill they realize im killing them alot.
Being imaginative or creative is hard when there is 23 million accounts on Xbox Live! It is even worse on PSN due to the number "wild" of accounts....
x x x gangsta x x x with a trillion variations. Because every twelve year old american boy thinks that it is cool. *Rolls eyes*
Funny too. I changed my Clan Tags to 4:19. That's right, I get high a FULL MINUTE before those noob potheads! Their pot is now pwnd!
I played a game of halo 3 with this 11 year old kid named jizzbomb
Halo, master chief, etc...
What's yours? Dildo4Life?
Most people that I play on MW2 on Xbox Live are called Josh, Taylor or Tyler with some combination of "X" in the name. Pi$$es me off no end.
all tru,most live names are lame. but wot do you expect from teens
looks at your name. shakes head.
lol at the lol
Oh yeah... Teens have lame tags, and WashingMachine is the most awesome name ever... /s WashingMachine... hahahah.
Whats you guys names then? Post them for a good laugh. Is it washingmachine? Lmao
I actually just changed my Live Gamer tag about 2 months ago. I had the tag of "The Darth Gamer" for as long as I can remember and actually thought it was funny that I fell into one of the categories on the article, BUT, due to the ever growing amount of 10 year olds and others who need to act like they're 10 years old, calling it "gay", and "Darth gamers a ffag" even though by their voice, it sounds like their balls haven't even dropped yet, I had to change it. I am now "SKREWUALL" to show my gratitude. I'm finding I like this one much better. Expecially when I play with my friend on MW2 who's name happens to be "FUALL".
thats d only insults dat u americans can tink of ' omg dude ur balls havent even droped yet ' it makes me laugh wen i hear people saying it
I'm sorry, I must have hit a soft spot with you. Are you one of those 10 year olds who's balls haven't dropped yet from another country other than America. Sounds like to me, you have been told that alot. Before you try to insult other people, for no reason what so ever, try to atleast sound somewhat intelligent. You can start with learning how to speak. TRU DAT YO!!!
To all of the other intelligent people reading this, I really have nothing against people from outside America, just responding to the douche bag above who obviously hates Americans.
this guy needs a life...so basically he prob wants your tag to be your first name and last name.
My gamertag is my name just like my name on here Sean Ryno . I like people knowing who killed them. That's just my preference, I do enjoy laughing at some peoples names. Mine used to be Dr Acula, and the funniest one I ever saw was bushstaxplan, that made me laugh my ass off.
I love my tag :) Ali The Brit Although looking bash I wish I had done it with no spaces, so like AliTheBrit would have been better.

This guys list isn't just limited to Xbox Live, it's the same thing with PSN as well. These kinds of people are either a douchebag, lazy, unimaginative, stupid, or trying to be funny. I can deal with a lot of the funny ones, but I'm really sick of seeing things like Joe26532 or 133tsnip3r2468. Yes, my name here is Fragger2k8, but it's just something for a website. I would never do that with my name on Live or PSN.
true that i can hardly pronounce most of the gamertags i see on mag and i wont go into all the "igotu""ujustgo tpwnd" etc type of names that i see mine is the same as here a nickname i used to have because i have an afro (and i like the irony since m white)
xx PRODIGY xx.
STICKzophrenic Doesn't fall into any of those categories. :-)
Mine is CRAIG667 on XBL and CRAIGZ667 on the PSN. Simples...
My xbox tag is: belowradar I'm pretty bad at twitchy MP games so I end up sucking and staying under the radar. It's kinda gay but I really don't care anymore. My original xbox tag was phishh34d and whenever I'd play Halo I was always being called "34d". I'm glad I wasn't able to recover that account when I switched to the 360. My PSN is: phishhead This can easily be answered. I've been a fan of the band "Phish" for almost 20 yrs. so it was easy. Plus I created my nick on launch day so I was able to get it without the stupid numbers in the nick.
PSN: ElwoodBlues in honor of the best movies of all time... best musical at least plus Some of the movie was filmed in my city
I find the animal names pretty funny. Most of them are preset gamertags that the xbox gives you when your first choice is taken. My brother couldn't use his last name, so the xbox suggested SkilledRaccoon, he though it was funny, and there you go.
I've had 2 temp accounts with random generated names as well. FaultiestAnimal and ErroneousShoe.
Mine is very simple BX81 and I've been using it since I was a teen. BX=Bronx and 81=D.O.B What I really hate is when people go "Hey BXB" It's clearly an 8. Can anyone tell me if BXB is a halo term? I've herd it b4 but I'm not sure.
At least Ive never heard it.
http://www.wikihow.com/BXB-... 1 - Hit B for a melee attack. 2 - Quickly hit XB, in the same time frame as a BXR attack. 3 - Practice this with friends on custom games first. Let them stand still for your first practices. Then have them moving, then jumping etc. Do this and you will get better at it. 4 - Don't think your all great because you BXB someone, its only used for a fast kill, but that doesn't mean you should use it all the time. I Googled BXB and that was the very first site to pop up. ***EDIT*** I also found this... http://www.gametrailers.com... Pretty interesting. I've been playing halo 3 since it released, and have never heard of this. I wonder how common it is for people to do. Hmmm...
@STICK Thanks for that! Now I can rest easy knowing thousands of nerds confuse me for a melee attack! Have a bub. on me!
Damn I hate my PS3 tag, SILENTSTEALTH XD When I made it about 3 years ago I thought i was well ard XD But now it sucks, but im level 12 on trophies so cant really change it. Xbox tag is kazog, didnt even want it just tried it but then I found I couldnt go back to choose another. Oh well =D
Don't care what it is as long as it can be either: a. Easily pronounced b. Shortened c. Quickly recognised There's nothing worse than playing with someone on your team and being unable to call them. I usually get my online IDs shortened to Pirate. It's very simple.
lol the ones where they HAVE to say they're a woman. They crack me up. 'SexAyVix3n!' For me personally I use MeatAbstract for Steam, XBL and PSN. Basically a song I was listening to when I first used it and it stuck. Personally, I think its a pretty cool :P
i was playing mw2 with a gamer with the name almightysniper or something to that effect and he/she was SH.IIIIT with it.
I always wanted to use a tag like, "high cholesterol." That way, if I was playing a shooter game like Halo and I killed someone, it would read for them, "You were killed by high cholesterol" or "You were beat down by high cholesterol." Sadly, I am just Kaveti.
I see alot that have "ninja" in them! Ninja this or ninja that. Oh and heaps of Xx-ninjas-xX
on both my 360 and my original xbox: AskJesus TheMonkeysUncle OhMyGandhi HookedOnPhonics PuntTheDonkey and yes, every other name I've seen involves 2-4 numbers after some name and endtags like: Xx xX. not to mention names that start with "ur" or "your" like "urface1010" or "urMomma" I usually own those people in matches.
danielle007 isn't all that original, but, I like it & I made it forever ago.. It does the job. haha. It may be my name and 007, but I think it's simple. My PSN name is left4danielle, because I loove left 4 dead.. If L4D had been out when I made my gamertag on XBL I probably would have been left4danielle on there as well. I like to think I'm witty, haha. And sure, my name makes it obvious I'm a girl, but ... that's because it's my name. It's not stupidskank6969 or anything. & my bio is girlyness free. haha.
That's what all those sexyvixen ones boil down to. stupidskank6969.
My friends tag used to be dirty tampax as he thought it would turn other players off that mutch he could kill them while they were dry heaving needless to say someone complained it got banned, i once got banned cause someone complained about the fact i lived in george lucas neck,lol a whole family could live in that sag.
