Explain The Story Behind Your Stupid Gamertag

If you're lucky, or brave, your gamertag (or other similar account name) might be, well, your name. A few of my friends are like that. Chances are, though, you picked a fake handle and went with that instead.

That name might be insightful. Or clever. Or funny. Or, more likely, indecipherable and a little stupid.


Yet behind every stupid (or smart!) decision is a story, and we want to hear yours. I'll get the ball rolling.

Mine is...the sound a fish makes when you discover them in Wind Waker. A little silly, perhaps, but I've always enjoyed the fact it meant I never needed miscapitalised letters, underscores or numbers in the thing.
