A gamertag is a person's online persona over xbox live.

You need to pick it wisely as Microsoft will try to get as much money from you as possible because it costs 10 dollars to change it.

Also there are unwritten rules when it comes to creating your gamertag.
Rule #1: It may contain at least 1 marijuana reference.
Rule #2: It may or may not (your choice) reference alcohol or boobs.
Rule #3: It must have 3 x's somewhere in the gamertag (perferably at the beginning and the end)
Rule #4: If you are 12 years old and are planning on playing halo 3 all day after school until your bedtime you must put MLG in the beginning of your gamertag.
Rule #5: You must, MUST make it look you're so retarded that you spent your whole time as a baby in a washing machine.
Here are some examples of gamertag you might want to use.

An Xbox or PS3 made "Online Account" with a word from the dictionary pretty much, Basically any word made into a name is an "OG Gamertag" Example: Dog, Cat, House, Truancy etc.. HAVING AN X BEFORE A NAME OR 4 LETTER THAT MAKE NO SENSE IS NOT OG.

It is a funny joke of altering the layout of your gamertag on Modern Warfare 2 to look different. You and make it say something funny like "I R Pro" in blue or say "MLG is Gay" in pink and black. You can also include other charaters like X, A, B, Y, RB, LB, R, L, RS, LS, Dpad buttons in there.
"Dude your gamertag is so annoying with those LB and RB buttons. When you talk they flash on and off all over my screen."

"I really hate faggots who think they are so cool by using modded gamertags."

"Hey kid how'd you do that with your gamertag?"
"No"
"Tell me!"
"No shut up!"
"TELL ME"
