Ahh gaming with babies--so much fun. I was a competitive gamer and one of the most well known stories about me was when we had to put a match on hold
because my youngest had a diaper leak on my lap, lol. My kids love the fact that I'm a gamer. In one of the games where I was a champion, it
actually really worked to my son's benefit when we moved and he changed schools. He found a pocket of friends in the first few days because I'd
bought him a Portal T-shirt. Then, when they found out who his mother was, he was catapulted to "legendary" status as I was pretty notorious on my
coast in that game.
To the OP to bring it back: You know it's bad when your community derived--not personally chosen--nickname is the angel of death as that means 13
year olds are comparing you to Josef Mengele an actual war criminal.. LOL. My monstrous reputation was pretty bad in that game to the extent that my
son, when he plays it, still has random people recognizing the tag we share and remembering me by nickname despite my not having played the game in
over a year.

That, however, makes me a great case in point against the idea that video games create monsters. My reputation in games was both as a monster and as
one of the kindest people who was always there when somebody needed a friend. If gaming were related in any way to reality, what a monster I would
be. However, it's not and that's the truth at the end of the day. Video games don't make monsters; they just lead to monstrous eye/hand
coordination and reaction speed, lol.

to in your name!!! RAWR!
