A person who plays videogames as an active hobby.(not to be confused with a passtime or casual entertainment)


lolwut, I play football and soccer as an active hobby. But i would not call myself as sportsfigure because I do not play professionally. If you play something as a "hobby" you do it for entertainment purposes only.


A: Not true. Lots of people do something for a hobby because they want to get into it.
B: You're still a football player and a soccer player. Just not professional.

Gamer: A person who plays video games.


Yes. That pretty much covers it. If gaming is the hobby that you turn to when there is time to kill. A "gamer" is what you are.

Someone who regularly plays video games.

Anyone can play a video game for like 2 hours a month, I wouldnt consider them a gamer.

I play SF:AE semi-competitively and I don't consider myself a 'gamer.'

A gamer is a person who enjoys playing games but obviously have a bit more of an interest in it. I mean a person who only plays one game a year or plays Angry Birds on the train is hardly a gamer. It would be like saying that I shoot a basketball for 10 minutes every month and try to say I'm an athlete.

These days, all the kids are playing M rated games while the adults are lining up for Pokemon. Which game is a kid's game now?

For me it means a new generation of self entited whiners and complainers who feel the need to define themselves by the hobby that eats up most of their time, despite the fact that very little of that time is spent on actual video games, and most of it is just lurking around the internet searching for more rumors or business figures to moan over until the next redundant FPS comes out for them to whine and complain more about.

Back in the 80s and early 90s, people played videogames, but they also went outside too. Sure as hell didn't define themselves by the hobbies they had. Kids today...

But to be fair ALL generations will always think they're better than the new one.
