Many of you know me as Gordon but in actual fact, that’s not my real name. It’s my alias online.
It all started around 10 years ago with the game Half Life. It was the most awesome game I have ever played. It tells the story of a silent hero Gordon, his quest to stop an alien invasion and make it home in time for dinner.
What I love about the game is that there are no cut scenes in between levels. Everything unfolds by itself as you proceed through the game. Gordon never spoke a single word in the game. It gave you the feeling that you are really in the boots of Gordon from a first person perspective witnessing all the mayhem.
The game was so awesome I decided to adopt the name Gordon whenever I play games like Counter-Strike. So what’s with the ‘ator” suffix? Well first off, I did not copy from Japanator. I believe Japanator was started in late 2006, I registered my nickname Gordonator at a local forum in mid 2004. Anyway many years ago I came across someone by the name of Kevinator at another forum. I thought it sounded pretty cool so decided to add ”ator” to my nickname as well.
And there you have it, the not-so-secret origin of my alias. This post will be made into a “About Me” tag which I will put up in the near future. And lastly thank you for wasting 2 minutes of your life reading about me.
