How to know if someone is a gamer

#21KillerTrufflePosted 10/24/2013 10:25:44 AM
And for the triple-post win (unless someone ninjas this), ALL of the words mentioned are actually both nouns and verbs.

Game (verb): Play games of chance for money; play video or computer games; manipulate (a situation), typically in a way that is unfair or unscrupulous.

Golf (verb): Play golf.

Bowl (verb): Roll a ball (or hoop) along the ground; play the game of bowling; move rapidly and smoothly in a specified direction.

Guess I was wrong about the definition. Still, it's silly to call yourself a gamer in my opinion.

To Love : Lover...
To Sleep: Sleeper...
To Sin: Sinner...
To Rule: Ruler...
To Game: Gamer...
To Play: Player...

Or you could go it this way:

To Govern: Governor...
To Dominate: Dominator...
To Impersonate: Impersonator...
To Counsel: Counselor...

It's actually the most basic way to form nouns out of verbs that apply to action verbs.

No sillier then calling yourself a (INSERTHOBBYHERE)er.

I'm confused... are you saying that the definition of "counselor" is "to counsel?" Because that sure isn't the case. A counselor is "one who counsels." Same for every single word you posted - the "to" should be replaced with "one who," and each word should have an s on the end. One who loves. One who games.

No, he's giving how you would modify each verb in order to make it a noun, just as you did above.

Ah. I get it. I guess it was just worded in a confusing way.
