Why did you choose the username you have?

I chose Sam998 because my name is Sam and I add 998 to the end of all my usernames.

My dad gave me a pair of wings made out of some waxy substance and cautioned me not to fly too close to the Sun.

I'll show him tomorrow when I take my maiden voyage.

I just finished watching a gangster flick before making my account. "BG" stands for baby gangster and "modder" because I originally came to make GTA IV mods.

I chose mine because: Marcus sounds like an outlaw-ish name, Price because of a character called Malcolm Price, from the film, Another 48 Hours, starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy, Price is the biker that is the boss of Cherry and Willie biggrin.gif

I was watching Donnie Brasco while registering. Michael Madsen was pretty badass in the movie I thought, so I used his character as my username. Also the name kinda reminds me of Sonny Forelli, so I liked how it also gave off a bit of a GTA vibe to it too.

King Mystery because Rey Mysterio is who inspired me to love wrestling the way I do. He's why I love wrestling, why I want to be a wrestler, and he was my first favorite wrestler.
How is Rey Mysterio related to King Mystery, you ask? Rey Mysterio is Spanish for that. (Actually, it's Rey Misterio that means King Mystery, but he changed the I to a Y)

i made mine when i was 13. i had the same name on another forum and just kept it. it's pretty gay. it's mostly as a joke because i'm not a "playa" nor a gangster. i live in a mostly white neighborhood.

if i had the option to change it i would change it to CJproductions

Interesting story actually.

When I was 14, I was playing Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, and the demo movie came on.

At about 0:43, there's a screen that says WASTED. However, it went by so fast that I thought it said UNRATED, and thus my name. I finally figured out that it doesn't say UNRATED just now, when I was searching for the video. My name is a lie!

The 69 is just a random number.

I first registered under the name ryan92 which was my name and year of birth. After a few years I was able to get a name change and got it changed to Unlimited. Not exactly sure why I choose it. Decided it was time for change and was able to get another name change to my current one which is my name.

When I was really young, around 8, a friend in school thought my surname was Cloud and we both laughed over it (it's not, but I guess it sounds similar). I don't know why but I always remembered it, so I used Miss Cloud randomly as a username a while ago. It stuck and I generally use it for most things.

I believe it could also be a character in Final Fantasy ... but I didn't know that at the time!

For some reason, I just don't buy that.

I chose this name because I act like this guy when I am in COD for the lulz and to promote them some cause they are really funny.

Urgh, you're the reason I never wanted Xbox Live (I'm not saying you play on 360, it's just people like you).

I came up with my username when I was making my PSN account a few years ago. Around here people used to make gamertags and sh*t that contained their name followed by the year in the form of '2k6'. I thought it would be funny to parody this but all I got was a sh*tty username (which I use for everything because I'm unimaginative).

I nver lerned to spel. its my oen tru sham sad.gif

Actually, the name I really wanted to use was already taken. I heard 'Chosen one' in the song I was listening to and thought "that'd make a great name!" but I forgot to double-check my spelling and voila! - I spelled it wrong. Funny thing is, both variations of my username were alreay in use anyway, so, yeah... fate works in mysterious ways. Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif

As I was younger, fitter, much more idealistic and non-police-registered I was a bit interested in the graffity scene so I choosed this name as tag.
A lot of memories come across with this name for me, and for sure itīll never be forgotten in my mind.
It fits good to me cause I love the naid more than the day, so Iīll keep raidin' thru the naid. And we did some crazy sh*t in the past, mostly @ naid! devil.gif

BTW, I liked "Knight Rider" as well, always good to fight for weaker ppl that canīt do this for themselves.

On the back side of the box of the game just cause 2 it said the world which had no vertical limit and for some reason I thought it was cool.

If I had the option to change my username I would change it thrill seeker or adrenaline junkie or maybe just capitalize 2 letters in my current username.

I wanted to come up with a Mr. ______ name

Couldnt think of anything at first, but then I came up with Mister. My parents were nagging me to come eat dinner so I rushed and stuck with that name.

Obviously, my username is taken from the Lance Vance Dance, as visually described in my avatar. The 07 part was just something random.
