A game name is a name (usually a pseudonym) adopted by a gamer, of console or computer preference, used as a main preferred identification to an entire gaming community. Usage among people is most prevalent in games with online multiplayer support, or at electronic sport conventions.

RationaleEdit

The reasons for a player using a game name are similar to those for actors using stage names. As the usual form of address in multiplayer games is not by a person's real name, some are prompted to think up a creative and unique alias that they wish to be universally known as.

Screen names differ from game names in that they're primarily used to identify a user account in a computer system, rather than provide an alternate name for a player. The only exception to this is if a player chooses to make both the same.
