Top 50 Best TryHard Names And Nicknames

The right gamertag can really change how the opponents approach you and your team.

Gamers are not always defined by their gameplay, but also, by their unique OG.

OG means original gamertag. A gamer with a wonderful gamertag can make themselves appear as a noob or a formidable opponent in a game.

There are many gamertags that gamers pick up to define their playstyle or sass. Most of these names are made up of characters and numbers to make it sound really cool. Many of the gamertags also end up being channel names for Twitch TV or YouTube. You can also keep these gamertags as cool PS4 names. Here's a list of some of the top channel names for TTV (Twitch TV) and YouTube and gamertags.
