    Late to the party, but here is a small primer by xkcd on choosing a good password:

    Many gaming sites have been hacked since 2015. A few of the top of my head, Not all of which are on HaveIBeenPwned.com

    Xbox-Scene.com
    3dsiso.com
    pspiso.com
    dev.dota2.com
    360icons.com
    Abandonia.com
    AimJunkies.com
    Arma3-Life.com
    ArmyForceOnline.com
    BandaNaimcoGames.com
    Habbo.com
    Minecraft.net
    DDO.com
    DLH.net
    FlashFlashRevolution.com
    Game-Tuts.com
    And many MANY more.. (Some of these breaches are even unreported!)

    This is why you should NEVER reuse a password. And if you're lazy person at least change the damn email pass to something different.

    Hackers are trying to hack you 24/7, If you're not going to protect yourselves then I'm sorry but you kinda deserve to be hacked. Gone are the days you can use 123456 on a million sites.

    If you're still using the same pass CHANGE IT, NOW. > https://www.strongpasswordgenerator.com/

    Did you know a password is pretty much like a door key/car key nowadays? If you don't want your prized car being nicked or your house being robbed change the locks (aka passwords)!
