It was the year 1994, I was currently seven years old, and completely addicted to video games. At the time I had played many different types of games, but I was never introduced to an RPG or a Final Fantasy game. That fact would soon change and this is when my journey begins. This is the story about where I found the name that I would use for many years of gaming.
It all began when one of mine and my brothers friends, Michael, had purchased a game called Final Fantasy 3 for the SNES. We were long over due for an all nighter at the time, so it was decided to play this new game. Michael came over that night with box in hand, and I could tell at first site how epic this game would be. You just can't beat the smell of a new cartridge with freshly printed manual along side it. After smelling that amazing manual there was only one thing left to do... play!
As soon as we put the cartridge into the slot, we push the power button, and our epic journey began. I was completely enamoured with the game, the story telling, the style, everything. I have never played a game like this one. We would switch off and on playing the game, and I was amazed at this new type of game i was experiencing. Anyway, throughout the adventure we would be accompanied by more and more companions. This isn't something I do now; however, back then we decided to rename the characters. We named one Mike(Michael), one Tony(Brother, Anthony), and one Vince(Me, Vincent). At the time I never even knew the real name of the character who I was named. In fact, I didn't learn the name of that character until I started to play a game that came out 4 years later.
Flash forward to the year 1998, I was 11 years old, and learning about a new type of game experience. This new experience was an on-line game, a game called Star Craft. When I clicked on multilayer I had to create an account. There I sat with the cursor blinking in the Name input. Name? I thought to myself. I didn't want to use my own name, because I had the choice to use a name that I wanted(although Vincent is a pretty cool name). I thought back to that one night 4 years ago... what was the name of that character I renamed? I began to research and discovered the name of the character that was renamed to Vince.
Ever since that day I use or have the name Sabin in all my game names. The name Sabin is the actual reason why I developed this site. I wanted to know when the name Sabin would come available, and by using this site I was able to know when it would be available. I'm happy to say that I finally have that name Sabin in League of Legends, and I hope that this site can now help you.
