Because the gaming experience can so often be just you and your controller—or maybe a few friends—it might be hard to believe that gamers come in the millions! As a behemoth of an industry, the video game experience is worldwide. But there are definitely games that have stolen the hearts of millions, creating international bonds between people who may not have ever come across each other before. Video game baby girl, boy, and gender-neutral names celebrate these bonds, the medium, and the pure joy in playing them....
There are approximately 3.24 billion gamers in the world! Video games can unify—and divide, but let’s avoid our own version of the pineapple-on-pizza debate—people from all over the world and different walks of life. And some of the most celebrated games in the world can find a home in this list! From The Last of Us to plenty of Final Fantasy to Grand Theft Auto V, these video game names come from different origins to represent the vast array of people playing and loving them.
This list leans heavily on the PlayStation and Nintendo side of things, but all console love is welcome here. These video game names are a celebration of the brilliant video games that have had an impact on players from all over! Though these 15 video games are distinctly not indicative of the entire industry, they do represent games with some of the most accolades and characters. And if they’re not your favorites—yet—maybe give them a go after favoriting your top choices!
By choosing a video game baby name, you’re giving baby the love you have for the game and them in one little title. Picking one of these is also a way to share a long, long goal with baby right from the very beginning! By choosing a video game baby name, you’ll share your favorite memories and gear baby towards a life of being your gaming buddy.
