We know there are literally thousands of other gaming sites floating around the internet, but our goal is approach this market differently and offer passionate content with a great sense of humor that makes you want to stop by and visit everyday. We take what we do very seriously, but we wouldn’t continue if we couldn’t have fun with it. We also understand that you may not appreciate what we do right away. We’re not some crappy pop song you can hear on the radio once and sing along to it. We’re the sophisticated track that takes several listens to appreciate, but eventually becomes one of your favorites.
We Love Video Games
The main reason we started What’s Your Tag? is because we all love video games and the experiences that go along with them. Some of our fondest memories are the moments of our childhood that we spent playing with friends and family. Together we could tackle any challenge and overcome impossible odds, but for us it didn’t always have to be a social affair. Playing a great game by ourselves allowed us to be fully immersed in spectacular worlds filled with fascinating characters. The art and passion that goes into game development can honestly be overwhelming sometimes, but that’s what makes us so attached to the medium. Video games are something we can all share and we love sharing that connection with our readers.
But What Exactly Do You Folks Do?
We do as much as we possibly can. Our crew is fairly small, but that’s the way we like it. We all share an intimate connection with the website and possess the same vision for it’s future. Originally What’s Your Tag? started off as a simple weekly web comic highlighting the adventures of Mileson and Kafka Luck. We’ve since expanded our selection of content and now provide video game news, reviews, commentary, and a strange variety of other shenanigans. To the untrained eye, this may seem like a traditional news/review site, but after browsing our catalog and reading a few articles, we think you’ll find it’s much more. No other site in the world delivers the same offbeat brand of humor as our comics or the fan favorite, JaPokeHeeMon.
I Don’t Get the Name…
What’s Your Tag? started off as an inside joke between a couple friends and I. We took the stigma of the awkward gamer nerd having trouble flirting with the ladies and completely reversed it, turning “what’s your tag?” into a pickup line. When you see a hot gamer chick at a bar, forget asking for her number, just ask for dat gamertag. We loved this concept and decided to use it as the name for our website. Asking questions is the key way to start conversations and that’s what we’re all about. We love talking with our audience and frequently ask for their opinions and input. Our weekly Nerd Wars! segment is completely devoted to community interaction. If you’re interested, here is the origin comic of What’s Your Tag?.
Why Don’t You Cover a Wider Variety of Subjects?
When we say we’re passionate about video games, it doesn’t mean we’re passionate about all video games. We try to focus on content we’re legitimately interested in and excited about. We all have our favorite genres and that’s what we prefer to cover. Having a strong personal connection with a project makes it that much easier to write about. We’re not going to cover FIFA or Flappy Bird just because it’s the flavor of the week. We’re going to highlight material that we believe in and want to see succeed. Our reviews and opinions are completely honest and we stand by what we do.
TEAM XBRO? But What if I Play Other Stuff?
One of the running jokes of What’s Your Tag? is that we’re all hardcore Xbox fanboys. We embrace generic bro culture, Xbox, and Mountain Dew in an ironic way and that’s just kind of our thing. TEAM XBRO is simply an outlet for like-minded individuals to get together and talk about the games they love and organize adult play-dates. You don’t even need to own an Xbox to participate. Wanna throw down on some Killer Instinct or maybe organize a raid in Final Fantasy 14? Perfect. Just join the group and slap up a post. Everyone is welcome and we encourage our regular readers to join.
“Gamer” is Such an Ugly Word
We’re not fans of the term”gamer.” In many ways it’s a derogatory term that’s used to describe someone in a very one-dimensional way. We’re human beings with unique tastes, lifestyles, and hobbies, so please don’t reduce us or anyone else to a single word. You wouldn’t call someone who watches movies a filmer or a movier, would you?
I hope this gives you a better understanding of What’s Your Tag?. We pour our heart and souls into this website and hopefully it shows through in our content. If you like what you see and want to help support what we do, feel free to drop us a comment or share an article. We also love seeing new followers, so be sure to watch our exploits on Facebook or Twitter.
A huge thanks to everyone who’s stopped by and made what we do possible. Your comments and encouragement have kept the dream alive and we would have nothing without your support. You’re all super rockstars with tight bodies and everyone should be jealous of your awesomeness. There is no better feeling than popping online and seeing a bunch of positive comments from you guys and gals. What’s Your Tag? may only be a small fish right now, but hopefully one day it grows into a whale or something poetic like that.
Hugs and Kisses,
Miles Dompier – Chief Editor/Founder
