    I've asked this before but never understood....

    What is so attractive about the inclusion of Wolf in ones Gamer....Tag? Is it some internet trend im not aware of? Do you just like Wolves? Is it that you think I sounds cool?

    I want to know why? Im not trying to insult or target anyone.

    From my own personal stand point I would not include Wolf in any of my Gamer Tags or what ever because I think it is cliche.

    However Im more often than not wrong and many things I say are stupid.

    So what is you reason for it?

    Oh and if the mods think this should be else where please move it. I thought posting it here would get this thread seen by members who actually use Wolf in thier User Names....

    Really. The thing that I don't get is people with random letters and numbers, maybe it might mean something to them but It just looks weird to me.

    I have rarely seen anyone with wolf as well. Though I will say if I did have wolf in my gamertag, really I think I would go with TimberWolf and then some random number mostly because I was a big mechwarrior fan many years ago.

    What I don't get are the people who have gamer tags like- xX(username)Xx or zZ(username)Zz. What's with the freaking letters around the username (ignore the paraenthesis). It drives me nuts seeing X's or any other letters that go around the username.

    I am assuming that the (username) part of their username was already taken, and they started adding stuff around it so that they could use it regardless.

    Maybe but there are many of them, to many that I don't think all of them have usernames taken that they like but rather they like it while it just drives me nuts for some reason. It just looks dumb to me with the letters around their names.

    Typically people do that so that they can guarantee getting the name they want without having to worry about the system saying "name already taken." If you were to make a new account and try to name it "Gwyn," that'd probably already be taken either by some Dark Souls fan who beat you to the punch or someone who's actual name is "Gwyn" or "Gwen" or something. So you just add something seemingly random like the middle four numbers of your birthday and "Gwyn1241" becomes alot less likely to be taken despite the fact that you can just ignore the numbers and call your character "Gwyn."

    Letters around a username is usually because the original username is already taken and it looks better than having your username followed by a string of numbers.

    I don't have Wolf in my GT, although i had planned on using it in my GT at first. The reason to it though, was because wolves happen to be my favorite animal, and i can relate to their behaviour, so it would just kind of describe me.

    I ended up with xFingeR PaiNtx only because everything i tried was taken and i happened to be using the bloodprint of a hand as an avatar on another forum at the time, so i just thought i'd go with something more friendly than ''Bloodprint of a hand'' or something silly like that. Shrug

    I actually considered changing my GT to Knight Solaire or Iron Tarkus, place my summon sign on the same spots as them, depending on the GT i took, and then just troll players with 2 Solaire/Tarkus for the lulz. I just don't want to pay to change for some one time fun though.

    Min PSN name is Mr_Okami123 or some thing like that. I don't have, but one PSN friend. So I tend to forget what my name even is.

    Okami Amaterasu is a Japanese wolf god deity. Okami is also one of my favorite games of all time.

    Ya. I hate the XxXNAMExXx. Its just...its stupid looking. The wolf thing is just due to people tryin to sound 'cool' most the time. Same deal as. 'Assassin'. 'Ninja'. And. 'Dark'. Anything like that is just a lack of creativity most of the time. Not to start a console war here, but im sooo glad i'm ps3. I make alternate accounts all the time for fun, or to troll people. You gank on me, ok fine, i'll make a character with your name, but change the. I, into a l. Mwhahahahahaha... captial i, and lowercase L. Or something like that and then INVADE THEM with what looks like their own name..blows peoples minds. Then when they msg me, i msg them back the EXACT same thing via copy/paste just removing the RE: MAX TROLLAGE!. Poor xbox peeps. Microsoft is screwing you guys.

    But back on topic. I've made friends just based off initial creative names i've seen. And vice versa. But i do have friends with the 'XxXnameXxX', and they HATE IT. But they have trophies etc on it so they keep it as their main anyway.

    I Don't know about the wolf thing, but I'm sure some of the XxXnameXxX people are straight edge as that is a symbol for straight edge
