Hi there SwampyRat02079. To answer your question, yes: Each account does need to have it's own profile in order to play online. Now, here's the thing: You only need the paid Gold subscription on accounts that want to play online or watch Netflix, Hulu, Youtube,
etc. If you want a gamertage that can play games offline but still have a gamerscore and acheivements, then you would do well with a free Silver account.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
