I mean, i thought Pokemon was like Mario, everybody knows who he is an at least played a game sometime in his/her life.

Thank you, gentlemen! Someday, I will repay you. Unless, of course, I can't find you or if I forget.

Nope. You're not a real gamer until you've played Pokemon.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

I think that there are people who play video games for a significant amount of time who have not played a Pokemon game.

For all you know they could just not like the RPG genre.

I've never had anyone convince me that there's any such thing as a fake gamer.

I'm not a GRRL gamer; I'm just another kid who had a Nintendo and never grew out of it.

Do you mean 'real gamers' as in 'gamers that exist in real life, on our plane of existence as physical entities'? Or 'real gamers' as in 'gamers who are the legit, real deal, gamers who really care about video games as a decently large hobby in their life'?

Pokemon isn't really a qualifier for "real gamer." I mean honestly pokemon is one of the most casual series ever.

So people who say they play games but they don't?

Trust me, I know what you mean, but this "real" gamer mess is really silly. "Hardcore" and "casual" is a bit more favorable but to me it's all making a rift where there doesn't need to be.

Where do you even draw the line? What if someone played all phone games, but they'd beaten the original Mega Man, just as a arbitrary example? The whole thing is stupid.

But yes, it's completely possible for someone who most consider a "real" gamer to have never played Pokemon.
