i have been wondering this for a while now..... what is a real gamer??

i just said in another topic that some people i know are not real gamers bc they only play certain online games

i been called a casual a number of times on the pokemon X board even though i have well over 1000 hours across all of the main games

did the meaning at some point change from "person who has fun playing games" to something else??

what is a real gamer???

It's hard to really pinpoint for me, but if I say I like watching sports, and the only sport I actually like watching is football, then it wouldn't really be true if I said I like watching sports. What I should really say is that I like watching football. The same could possibly be said for games. If you're a gamer, but you only play one or two kinds of games, then that might not necessarily label you a gamer.

Been there. Life in the 80s and 90s was full of "fun" moments of that sort.

A person that has no brand loyalty, and will play any genre.
Nintendrones and RPG freaks make me sick to my stomach. You're not true gamers. Play other genres without being biased you freaks.

No one who self identifies as a "real gamer" is a real gamer. At that point, you're more caught up in image than you are in gaming.

I agree with this man/woman/mammal.

A real gamer is a person who plays games, and also exists (or existed) in real life.

In other words, just a gamer.

The addition of the unnecessary word "real" is, in pretty much all cases, a boring attempt to make a "no true Scotsman" argument.
