id highkey love to hear how you got your PSN name because mine was a
poorly thought out “I want a nickname and no one will actually give me
one so I’ll go by Jinx” and now i am Tired of it and finally broke down
and used the free change. Now I wanna lowkey make it something Cyberpunk
Well, since you asked. (I hopped on my laptop just to answer this ahdasjdsa)
Okay, so, back in high school (2004-2008), was primarily my Xbox 360 gaming days. And once I got one, I was stuck on a good gamertag and until I cam up with something, I just used one of the generated ones.
So, fast forward a few months when I somehow managed to make friends that wanted to game online with me. (My boys as I used to fondly refer to them.) Back then, we would play Halo 3, Left 4 Dead, and Split/Second (which, to this day for me, is the best car racing game I have EVER played). And one of my friends, Bobby, looked at my generic name when he invited me, Jacob, and Leon over to his house and was like the hell is this Destiny?
And I was like *shrug emoji*
So he just looked at me for a second, before signing me out and creating a new GT for me. Mind you, I wasn’t into Final Fantasy series back them. I knew of it, mainly FFVII ofc, but not quite a big fan just yet. And 13 is my fave number (tho 15 is my next for obvs reasons LOL).
From then on, whenever we gamed online, they would primarily call me Final. (Usually when we were playing with other players on the team) if not by my first name.
And it’s just…stuck and now I use it everywhere as a way to recall some of the best times in my high school life.
(When I got my PS3, the name was unavailable and I was sad so it was BigBlueBox13 for a time. But once PSN said we could change our names for free one time, I immediately switched it to Final_Destiny_13 bc I’m so attached to it.)
We lost contact after college but last I remember he got married. I have with all of them, but I remember my boys every now and then and hope they’re doing well. Lots of good times we had screaming at each other. (Them @ me bc I always shot them in L4D by accident sfhskjfsdkgjdxkjgdx)
Go for it! If so, let me know or send me a friend request with it. :3
I don’t really game online much anymore due to how much I was harassed back on the 360 days when the boys couldn’t join me. The usual sexiest, yOuRe A fAkE gAmEr GiRl GeT bAcK tO tHe KiTcHeN sorta shit that immature boys who felt threatened that I “encroached” on their hobby would do. (Still do, I’m sure. It just gets real old, real quick. I am here to have fun and maybe make friends but now you’re being a straight up asswipe and I hope that every mild inconvenience ever will occur to you for the rest of your pathetic and miserable life, you useless piece of soggy breadcrumbs.
Can you tell I’m still salty over it 15-16 years later?)
But I’m willing to take up multiplayer stuff again. Have for a long time tbh. I just don’t have a headset for my PS4. Would probs have to use Discord until I do. lol
