Violence is the most prevalent theme found in Gamertags. Seems like practically everyone online is thirsty for blood, murder or revenge. If you cross their path, prepare to quake in fear at their terrible wrath.
Behind the menacing personas, however, are these players really all that thuggishly aggressive? We suspect it's mostly a front. A true badass wouldn't need to announce himself through some silly nickname; he'd let his badassery speak for itself. And if any actual killers use Xbox Live, they probably lurk beneath more innocent monikers... involving clowns. No, we predict that these seemingly violent gamers are, in reality, as meek and weak as a Doritos-munching kitten.
Dr. Frederiksen: "Saturated with aggression and deviance, this category is often the most troubling to outside observers. While they can be the choice of some truly troubled people, in most cases it is likely to be a relatively harmless way to fit in with the game culture that puts a premium on bravado. In reality... probably more conformity than meets the eye."
