So, Who’s FaythFuI?
Gamertags on PSN/Steam/Xbox: FaythFuI (with an i at the end…)
I’ve been known as FaythFuI for over 8 years now. I selected this name for my love of the word “Faith”. Now, my view of having faith isn’t related directly to religion, but moreso to courage (which fits with this site, now doesn’t it?). The word faith to me means having the courage to step forward into the darkness and still hold true to yourself, no matter what comes your way. We live in a world where we are constantly stepping into the unknown; having faith that you’ll make it through this darkness is why I go by this name – I try to remain as “FaythFuI” as possible through my life.
Tagline: Truly Outstanding…
This tagline came to me about a year after being known as FaythFuI. Truly Outstanding (while it may sound cocky) is meant to represent being an individual that is outstanding in a way that is separate from the norm. I consider myself someone who always tries to think outside the box, and I pride myself on my differences. I’m a little weirder and crazier than the usual, which in my mind, makes me an individual that stands outside what we typically see. Basically this line represents my desire to stand out, be different, and make people think. I never want to fade into the face of the crowd because what I have to offer to the world is too important to me. The ellipse at the end of the phrase represents that I always have something else to say or add – there’s always more I can give to the world, and that’s why I hope to uphold myself as a ‘truly outstanding’ person.
Head canon: Claire Redfield from Resident Evil
Claire Redfield is confident, sassy, and compassionate, and I identify with her character very much – Her sense of realism and her unwavering resilience against the hardships she faces is wildly inspiring to me, that’s why I chose her to represent my face on the internet/my gaming content. She’s also a character in the series that got me into gaming, so she’ll always have a special place in my heart.
Nicknames: Fay, Fayth, Fwee
‘Fwee’ was an additional nickname given to me by many of my gaming friends who like to joke that my name isn’t ‘FaythFuI’, but ‘FaythFwee’ since the last letter in my name is an ‘i’. I embrace this ridiculous name because it really encompasses who I am.
Color Scheme: Dark Blue/Black/Cyan/Teal/White
My color scheme for most of gaming/internet content has been black, blue, teal, and white. Alongside that, I usually have lightning/smoke aesthetics as compliments. I’ve always adored this color scheme for some reason (my entire computer set up is blue and black), and find it represents me as a person very well – it’s dark, but also vibrant in nature, which fits me to a tee.
Primary System(s): PlayStation and PC
I’ve been a PlayStation and Sony fan girl ever since I was able to pick up a controller (I even have the PlayStation buttons tattooed on my ankle!) I fell in love with gaming through this system and it will always remain my favorite. Although I’m also a PC gamer as well.
Note: There are so many games I love, so I’m just putting the basic names to represent my love for the whole series (for those that have multiple installments).
Feel free to ask me about which in the series I like best though!
Resident Evil, Mass Effect, Dark Souls, BioShock, Skyrim, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Tomb Raider Reboot(s), Destiny, The Last of Us, Portal, Half-Life, Undertale, Okami, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sly Cooper, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon, Guild Wars 2, Bloodborne, and many more.
The game that got me into gaming:
Resident Evil 4 – One day, my dad and I went to the game store and he put Resident Evil 4 in my hands. He looked me in the eye and said “this one’s really scary, you think you can handle it?” 14-year old me nodded excitedly and honestly, the rest was history. I’ve been RE4 probably 10 times through, and still love it to this day.
Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon – Of course these two are my childhood favorites since I grew up with a PlayStation 1!
