What Your Gamertag/ PSN ID Says About You

Everyone has a reason why their Gamertag and ID are the way they are. Some people put a lot of time into thinking what their username will be and others want to jump straight into the game. With technology people are forced more and more to use usernames; in various websites, and one their gaming consol. We’ve all seen just about every type of gamertag and I’m sure pretty much all gamers have wondered why certain people choose to call themselves certain things. So what does your gamertag or ID say about you? (Culture, PS3, Xbox 360)

My gamer name is dirtyd89.

dirty = Stands for how competitive/vicious I play.

d = First letter of my name which is Dominic.

89 = The year I was born. 1989.

I found that name to be unique to my style of gaming.

I only picked dfresh because that was the only name available to pick from with that phrase.
In other words dirtyd89 wasn't available surprisingly for me to pick as a user name on N4G.

The_Great_Wumbo

Thought the word Wumbo sounded funny and stood out. and put "THE GREAT" because I'm pretentious.

I found out months after creating my psn that the word wumbo originated from an episode of spongebob and it had been in my head for years.

Mine is Balasco on XBL and Balasco 68 on PSN. Its named after Lord Belasco from the 1972 movie The Legend of Hellhouse. Someone had already taken the correct spelling. Go figure.

ExCest  +   1236d ago
Excest came from a random string of letters. It wasn't until my friend pointed it out that I noticed it was the opposite of incest. Who would've known? (No I do not condone incest)

SleazyChimp was the first randomly generated gamer tag my original XBOX spit out when Live first came online. I liked it so I just went with it.
