For me, it was beating Mike Tyson's Punch-Out.
What makes a "gamer" in your eyes?

Someone who enjoys playing games. Be it board games, card games, video games, etc. If it is among your main hobbies, I'd call you a gamer.

Good answer.

What is your "proudest" video game accomplishment?

(Didn't beat Tyson till 88 or so...)

Anyone who plays various games, a lot. Typically games more than 8 hours a week minimum.

If you believe used games are the industries problem, then you sir or ma'am are a fool.

This. If you have to come up with any answer other than "play games" then I think your heart is in the wrong place.

I'd say getting level 50 in Halo 3 by honest means. That took forever.

Someone that plays and enjoys a variety of games and immerses yourself in the culture and/or community.

If you only play COD or Sports games, you're not a gamer. You're a dude/chick that likes video games.

Just like there is a difference between people that like movies and movie buffs.

Won't touch any game that isn't 1080p/60fps

imo, anyone who plays videogames as a hobby. doesn't matter if you're hardcore or casual, or what system you have. it doesn't matter even if all you have is a smartphone, if you download FFT, tetris, clash of clans, or even angry birds, as long as you game for the pleasure and not just with the intention to pass time quicker, I consider you a gamer.

I don't really consider people who play card/board games, gamers. I'm not sure what i'd call them, but for me, the term is synonymous with computer electronic gaming.
