I think we've all grown very attached and in some cases even known to other users to an extent by our usernames. Most of us have used our usernames outside of Giant Bomb and some of us have carried them as an online moniker for quite a while, but supposing one day you had to change your username to something completely different from what it is now. I'm very happy as Gamer_152 but if I had to change my username I think I'd probably choose the name Superintendent. What name would you choose?

Yummylee, to go with my PSN-ID. It trades the cool of Abyssfull for sexy. X)... or sleazy, maybe. 
 
aChaChaCha is another, too. Just as a tribute to the classic comedy quip ;P

I really don't know. I'm tired of this one after so long but I have no clue as to what I should change it to.

Probably Bryneaux or Brynomite. That's what I use on just about everything else. (My real name is Brian and these are nicknames, as is Castro.)

I go by my real name on some sites, first and last name, so sometimes my username is C.Kent or variations of that, and people always think I'm a Superman nerd :(

You could be a nerd about worse things, so that's not too bad.

I had an argument with a guy on youtube, and all he was doing was calling me "gay" and "lame" for being a Superman nerd, despite it being my actual name. :(

You could be called John Smith and there'll still be someone calling you gay and lame over youtube. That's a jab at the youtube community, btw, not me saying that you're gay and lame no matter your name ;P

True that. But I shouldn't have used my real name. Many people make fun of me for apparently being a Superman nerd, even though my username has no connection to superman. It's just my name.

Then that means your parents are nerds, which gives hopes to nerd everywhere. You are living proof that nerds can have sex.
 
If I had to change my username, I'd replace the underscores with spaces. If you're a dick about it, then I'd change it to Video_Game_Paragon, since that class is the combination of King and Paladin. Got that back at level 25.

CH3BURASHKA ==> ch3burashka. 
 
At the time that I made my gamertag, I wanted to go with "cheburashka", but some asswipe is squatting on it (still hasn't logged in). I changed the "e" to a "3", but aesthetically didn't like the change in character elevation, so I capitalized all of it. Later on, I read an article in a PC Gamer which psychoanalyzed gamertags, and pegged me as an attention whore. I'm quiet and restrained on the outside, but could totally be classified as an attention whore. My name now reminds me of this shameful badge of shame.

I would probably go with just Conn, I didn't consider it an option when first signing up but I though of it later and when I checked I was surprised it wasn't taken. Probably wouldn't though, I use this name for lots of things. Some fucker took it on Steam though.

I would say that more people know me as AltF4 than as HellBrendy. The latter I use where AltF4 is taken, like on Xbox Live and PSN, or this site for that matter.  
 
I would actually say that more people know me as AltF4 than Erik, my real name.  
 
So, if I could, I would change to AltF4. That nick, compared with my Cats avatar, is well known on norwegian gamerforums. I have even been recognized online in TF 2 by people I don't know.
