i remember there was a thread like this.

Philosophical45 - mostly used as my forum and chat room handle. Probably used it in a game once.

Bin Fraggin - Used this in my early quake3 and unreal tournament days. Just mocking Bin Landen. I was a run and gun addict, i still am.. lol

Shotology101 - my current handle, changed it from BinFraggin, i've used this since quake 3 and ut2k3 days, especially when guys in school used to run their mouth about being the best in UT. So i said, listen to me, i'll teach you how to shoot. Until i got banned from playing in the school lan sweat for being a show off, steups..lol. I wonder if i can get on nasty like that again..lol

shivadee - first "version" of my gamertag. Came up because people in the US cant say "Deonarine" properly so they just say "shivadee"

shivad33 - second iteration of the first name

Xexyz - an NES game from "back in the day". Pronounced "Zex-is". People well ketch they @ss to say this right and used to say "XYZ"

X3xyz - current gamertage on LIVE. Changed it from "shivad33" because of an @sston of requests from my twitter page when i said i was on MW3.

finalb00st - the original old........OLD gamertag for PSN. I think I've been using this since 2005 on PS2. Used to be a big car man (not anymore) and was all about turbo...yeesh. Name stuck and just too lazy to change :)

My PSN name originated from my likeness of the Devil May Cry character, Vergil and his DarkSlayer style. Having played DMC 3: SE for years since its release, I've gotten really good with his gameplay and only have Dante Must Die to SS rank in completion. I added Trini because it will I'm proud of my nationality and the fact that I've yet to see anyone play DMC as good as I have.

Well once the Thread open oui!! ^^

I was Originally Forscythe on these Forumns.....Reel Metal Head.....but that is another story...

Real Name = Imran

When i was young i was called imie by family and Girls.....;)

Then i read Ali Baba and the forty Thieves in Primary school ...My Family happens to be Ali...so I kept going around and shouting "OPEN SAYS IMIE!!" (Early Dovahkiin shout FTW! ;)

Also I'm a Massive Muppet / sesame Street /Jim Henson Fanatic!! So i modified it to sesimie.

Recently i saw these awesome Pics of Sesame Street Fighter pics.... So I'm now known as [GATT]SesimieStreetFighter

tbh, i don't really like my GATT name. i didn't put much thought into it when i signed up so many years back. if so many ppl didn't know me by it, i would have requested it changed. :(

Din know this thread was around nah lol.

When i first joined gatt i used firstname+lastname format lol, accustom using that when signing up for most things.
 So how did i end up with my current name?

Well when i now join gatt, ah sweatty up d scene with ah beast machine that blow out everybody score. And certain men on here, cough, arcman, cough, captawesome, couhg couhg, and a few others, didnt believe meh lol. And wanted visual proof that the machine was indeed mines. Some serious validation checks was going on back in them days, things get rel lax now lol.

Anyways, i was required to take pictures of the rig, so as extra proof i write up meh name and the quote "believe in the messiah" on some computer page and stick it all over d machine / monitor. I then posted my photos.
Hell, look i just find said photos on meh gatt page:





...Memories, lol.

People start calling meh messiah and i guess it stick since then. My initials is MH, so i capitalize the MessiaH, and since messiah so common, had to add ah extra 'a' for most sites/games, so i end up with MessiaaH. I then started using the name for all gaming/tech oriented forums, and it became my tag for games as well, sc2, dirt, etc...

Well as a gamer of many games,  I consider it a "special" trait for me. I even wowed a few of my cousins in playing certain games (by performs certain actions which is required, showing/improving my skills and adding more to my "Games Completed" list.  I also do believe that we, as gamers, are all special in some way, don't you agree. Hence, with a passion for gaming, combined with respect, humility, love for other gamers alike (and others in general) and unity in doing what I and many others do best, by the grace of God, TheSpecialOne came into GATT's (and the world's) existence. Peace, love, unity, loyalty and respect all the way!  :hello:

I came up with mine since 02, was feeling poetic and couldnt find a word that properly described the confusion i felt so i created one "PsiVal" - Psi to represent the logical thought of the mind and Val short for Valentine my birthday to represent the Heart and the illogical thought process. putting them together = Chaos or Harmony. So out of that i sued that as my callsign as when i entered a game (usually FPS at this time) i lived to screw with the enemy or cause Chaos and while playing game i was always at peace so it was my Harmony... It a Unique name that was never taken so i continued using it in most games i play.

WebDiva was a job title I had when I worked for an internet company in Seattle back in the day.  It was printed on my business cards. I added the "trini" to distinguish myself from all the other webdivas out there.

So I play this game called league of legends and back then my ping would round off to 999 on bad days and I had a previous gamertag called slimlix (still use from time to time), so, one day i'm stepping onto the battlefield after having a hard day at work and a beautiful break up and my net decides lets give him that 999 ping, i'm like wtf dan this is my reward for such a day PERFECT!!!! Back then BBM was the thing and my ex is pinging down my phone and after all the pings she types "so i have to ping you 1000 times to get a response" and from that day forward i was known as 1000ping

My last name is Corbie and in school I was relatively big compared to my schoolmates so they used to refer to me as goonta therefore I came up with the gamertag Corbiegoonta.
