Gamertag, a word that means alot in the gaming world. For many of us it means an identity. Whether your on Xbox Live, the Playstation Network, etc. it is who we as gamers are. It can be your name, favorite character, hero, or what have you. It can be a very hard decision and you may go through many different titles until you settle on the one that fits you.

So what makes for a great gamertag you ask? Originality counts for alot. I mean who wants to go by something plain and boring? Why be Jones123 when you can be KillEmAll? If you are┬álike me and you play alot of online multiplayer, then you definitely see some colorful names. 12 year olds going by InfiniteKiller is kind of scary to say the least, but it’s just a name right?
