Gamer for Life, yo. I kind of consider boardgames, cardgames, dicegames, pen and papers, even sports activities to be in the same category as video games, as far as "games"/"gaming" goes. Playing games is in fact what make someone a gamer. There are only two things that have ever successfully temporarily stopped me from playing a game mid-game, 1) a woman. (Whether that be my mother when I was really young, or a sexual interest while I was growing older. These days, sometimes, I am not even sure if that would take me away from a game). 2) Work (this could also include school). That is self explanatory. I guess the third would be a physical disability preventing me. --- This message was made with recycled electrons.
Modern gaming? I got close to quitting many times, getting closer and closer each time. Dark Souls pretty much "saved" me.
No matter what though, I'll always play my favorite games, and I can always explore backwards too. Aaaaand there is the fact that I work with programming, web-based but still, if I want to branch out and make my own game I can in the future.
