Lightbulb Reason behind your Gamertag?

What is the reason behind your gamertag in xbl?

mine is LankstaTDOT, a short version for 'the Lanksta of TDOT'. Anyway, 'Lanksta' stands for Sri Lankan Star, 'Lanka' it self stands for Blood of the Royal Sinha (term 'Sinha' stands for the royal Lion in Sinhalese) n 'Tdot' means Toronto. so yah!

Btw, it was originally known as 'TDOTLanksta', but since my previous account had that name, i thought i should use it the other way around.

PS: no it has nothing to do with 'gangsta' lol

ermak 20's Gamercard
Well originally my name/handle used to be Cha0s(named after the Primal Rage character), however it seemed to be a really popular name and so I decided to change it. Initially I went by Anti-Hero, but changed it to ErMaK(named after the Mortal Kombat character "Ermac".) I have gone by ErMaK since I was 16, so thats been like 10 years now(I'm 26). I've thought about change'n it back to Anti-Hero but I've been known as ErMaK for soo long that it just wouldnt seem right changing it.

I just really didn't like my old gamertag and just figured I'd make something randomly funny.

I mean really, wouldn't it catch your attention if you got shot at or killed by "TheGigglinGoose" during the game.

Well, I'm hard of hearing. I was playing an online game with my mom, and I got bored of my name, and was asking for her ideas of a new name. I kept shooting her down and down and down, and then she said something, and I typed in "DragonsGoMOO" and she was all "What the fuck? That's funny!" and that's been my name ever since.

I had a few other really good names, but those are my backups if anyone takes my current one on whatever site or gaming place.

Playing video games with your mom? Pretty fucking badass!

I chose the name Magic Man TJ because of the movie Taledega Nights. The guy in the movie calls himself the Magic Man later in the movie.. so I took that and stuck my initials to it. BTW I never use magic in any game I play lol.

Well, I originally had DCManiac6sic6 as my gamertag. A name I've used since I was in the 4th grade (since '96, I think...) Had it till about 2 years ago when I had a random urge to change my gamertag. I had spent the better part of a weekend thinking of different names, and even had some thought up from friends, some who used names we thought of.

Then, out of the blue when I was watching Zombieland one night, 'A ZombieTwinkie' just kind of popped into my head. I surprisingly get a lot of comments on the tag by people I meet online. Occasionally the few 'that's a stupid name' (which is being said by someone with a XxxXxMLG SnyperXxxXxx3303-esque tag) but the majority are complimenting me on it.

Original gamertag was Grifter with my initials attached at the end.

100 reasons why Grifter, but the easiest and shortest one is he was my favorite comic book character that wasn't main stream or well known at the time. LINK

Once I became an active clan member, I changed my name to LetTheWorldBurn. It suited me pretty well. Play style too.

After a falling out, I wanted to go back to Grifter, but with something different. Since it was being resurrected, Reborn fit perfectly. The timing worked out with a friend telling me about DC's relaunch of Grifter's own comic book, so that was a happy coincidence and just another reason for it.

xbl username = gamertag? im assuming its the same thing, well my old gamertag (username on this site) i made for niko belic on GTA4. after buying my new box gta was the only game i still had left, i really wanted to play and all gamertags in the world were "already in use." i couldnt believe i actually got niko da bos with no numbers, i wrote it in frustration and ended up sticking.

got tired of that one, mainly everybody calling me niko lol. now its Asari command0, which i love. mass effect is one of my alltime favorite games, and for some reason i just love the asari. most people just call me "command0" and think nothing of it, however a few fans catch on and we end up talking about mass effect lol.

*true story, when making my first GT i tried every name under the sun. i even put my entire full name, then with numbers, still taken.. at some point you know there full of shit, you can make like the most random name and somehow somebodys taken it before.

That's a fuckin' awesome real life nickname then...

Story time: I used to have a gamertag called SHAD0W OF D3ATH (one day, I ran into a guy randomly named SHADOW 0F D3ATH -- our tags looked identical, it was awesome). Anyways I realized how fucking lame that was, and I also realized kids on Halo 2 hated getting beat by somebody they thought was gay (my buddy and I would go into games saying shit like "Oooh, that was a festive grenade!" "Silly, don't try to touch me with your bad bullets!" in the gayest voices possible) -- it was only validated by our victory and kids screaming into the mic at the end of the game calling us obscenities and flaming the hell out of us. Soon enough I came upon one of those 2 month free trials, and I made a new, gay-specific tag. I had just watched South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut. In it, Big Gay Al sings a song that has a line "I'm so sorry, Mr. Cripple, but I just can't feel too bad for you right now, because I'm feeling, So Insanely SUPER, that even the fact that you can't walk won't bring me down."

Well, that stuck, and within a few weeks my K/D was much higher than my old GT's was, so I just kept playing on it and got rid of Shadow. End Story.

Edit: And for anybody even considering saying I'm insensitive or rude (because of the gay stuff), realize I was fucking 15 when I came up with it, and I have gay family members. It's kinda a non-issue to me. I see no difference between gay/straight, black/white, Christian/Muslim -- I really don't give a fuck who you decide to be. That's your life, I have mine, let's keep that in mind.
