Where I got my gamer tag/tags: First, some back story. My OG gamer tag on PS3 was RibbedForHerPleasure. I thought it would be good for a laugh, which is was at first, but lead to numerous annoying messages. I was starting to get tired of it, so I decided as I had no games purchased under that account, and only one major online game played (COD: MW2), it was a good time to switch it up when I switched to a new online game (COD Blops).
The problem then became two-fold. 1. I'm not very creative, especially with names, and 2. The number of players on PSN. After many failed attempts at a new name a thought crossed my mind. Some friends and I had just watched True Lies (one of the greatest actions movies of all time!) the night I decided to change my PSN name, and we all thought that CrimsonJihad (the name of the group Arnie takes down in the movie) would be a solid choice. As CrimsonJihad was taken (duh!) we all racked our brains for minutes before one of us (I forget who) realized Scarlett is a shade of red, just like Crimson! The rest, as they say, is history.
While we all thought the choice was great, my friends and I failed to realize a few key factors at the time. Mostly how few people would make the connection to the group in the movie (that many have probably never seen), and how ignorant some people can be. Fortunately it's rarely (if ever) been an issue since I stopped playing COD games. That said, given the current social climate, there is a part of me that would love the chance to change it.
So that's the story of how I got my gamer tag.
