Question Of The Month: What's Your Most Embarrassing Username?

by Jeff Marchiafava on Dec 09, 2015 at 08:31 AM

In issue 271, we asked readers to share with us the most awesome or embarrassing custom name they've ever used in a video game. While a few wrote in to brag about how cool (they think) their usernames/gamertags are, most respondents took the opportunity to poke fun at themselves for a less-than-enviable moniker. Now it's your turn.

Use the comments section below to share with us a facepalm-worthy username from your past, whether it incorporates early '90s leetspeak, a reference to a long-forgotten emo band, or a cannabis pun that isn't nearly as clever as you thought it was at the time (which is pretty much guaranteed). Don't worry: As someone who used to go by the gamertag "Tanuki Jeffro," I can confidently tell you that we've all been there before.
