    Mine (Meho PPPi) is a combination of three things.

    1. Meho was my nickname in school.
    2. PPP is what I always put into high score tables which only allow 3 characters. It actually started on Daytona on the Saturn. I just loved the just saying it after it was entered.
    3. The i on the end was a typo. It was supposed to me Meho PPP

    Consider your lives truly enriched after knowing this.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    As long as it isn't XXtehawesomesniper453xXX or some ridiculous muddle of words and numbers. Just pick something you like the sound of.

    I got mine (same as this username but with a space) from an old PS1 magazine review of G-Police. It was saying how it was quite a cool sounding name, compared to the other possibilities, "Space Pigs or Cosmic Fuzz" and it just stuck.

    There is a formula you can use:

    Colour of skin + Sexual preference + any violent word + random number

    Mine is from a Viz magazine character. GentlemanThug (from Raffles the Gentleman Thug). My first ever gamertag from the original xbox was "Raffles", I lost it years and years ago

    Fabricatedlunatic will no doubt agree with you there...


    I picked mine because AndyTheGreat was taken!

    Haha, I always see you as "Andy the head" for some reason! I then ignore the end part of your username... :D

    That'll annoy me now. I'll see your gamertag and thing "WHAT ARE YOU DOING THERE i! YOU'RE UNWANTED!". It also sounds like Pee Pee Pie, which is what I thought you were going for.

    I'd generally avoid anything with shit on wither side, like xoxx Common Name xxox. If you stick random characters at either side, that just tells me you're so unimaginative you couldn't think of anything someone else hadn't got to first.

    Not that mine isn't unimaginative, it's just a characters name from a TV show. But it's a character name without lots of fluff at either side. The more fluff you have, the more retarded you are. That's fact, my friend.

    Are you looking down on my sexual preferences and tanning salon addiction?!

    Mine is RickgDavies. It's an extremely witty pun and play on words that transends usual comedy and is something only the gods would understand. Also by complete coincidence the letters used to make my Gamertag joke spell out my name.

    My old Gamertag was "SaddamCrusade", alongside a picture of a bloke who resembled Saddam Hussein. Very silly, but I loved it because i'd receive so much abuse from jingoistic Americans. Also, because they'd hunt me out in games i'd usually rack up a fair number of kills.

    I had a short list of really pretentious Lovecraftian names so it could have been a lot worse.

    I chose this because it sounds a bit Gibsonesque like an incidental character from one of the Bridge novels. So not pretentious at all.

    One dee. Long oh.

    Its an anagram of Slickloose.

    I find these Eurogamer profiles are very informative ;)


    edit: Can I have Jaffa Cakes instead of the blow job?

    Mine actually came up as a suggestion, and the absurdity of it made me smile. Since I couldn't think of anything better I decided to stick with it.

    I like it though. It's like you're not just regular Meho PPP, you're Meho PPP with fuel injection!
