    Re: true gamers

    i agree with what tsurara just said...

    i don't actually agree with the "true" in true gamer...it's just "hardcore-than-thou" statement, i take the true more literally...

    i play a lot, from consoles to handhelds to WoW to D&D...no matter how dated your games are, no matter how jurassic your consoles are, no matter how many games you've finished 100%, whether you cheat or not...you're a gamer...you don't need to be hardcore to be called true enough....we're all gamers out here...

    Re: true gamers

    myself i consider myself a gamer becuase i have played over 63 rpgs for play station
    ,nes snes n64 and so on and i have beat them all with out a walk throiugh yeah i
    used them for after i beat the game to get things i missed.

    my favorite game was ff7 and i have yet to obsess over another game before
    that that mmom and those other fancy words dont mean anyhting to me
    heck where i live they dont have partys for anything,but for me a gamer is somone
    who can play a game and take something from it and compare ii to other games.

    you have to have game standerds and i put all the games i play
    up to the standerd of ff7

    Wow, for a second I thought I had gone back a decade or two to when there were Console Gamers, PC Gamers, Pencil & Paper Gamers, and Table Top Gamers and never the two (four?) would meet. They all considered themselves the only true gamers and everyone else just had a silly hobby. I am so glad that now just about everyone I know "cross-platforms", life is so much more interesting that way.

    A real gamer? Anyone who has taken a half an hour (or more) to try and convince someone else that whatever it is they do play isn't just some "childish game of make believe"

    Re: true gamers

    I for one think i'm a gamer. That might shock some people cause i'm a girl, but i just like to play video games. I've watched my brother and sister play since i was little and have wanted to play too. I wouldn't say i ama true gamer, but at least i play tons of different games. RPGs, fighting, sports, stagity(however you spell that dang word)pc , and many more. I have love games since i was little. I realy don't know what makes a true gamer. I think that you just have to like video games. Doesn't matter what kind.

    Re: true gamers

    Just like what tsurara said, its the type of consle you play the most. If your a person who plays different console alot does this make you a true gamer. Does playing a gameboy advance or a playstation or a xbox only and all the time make u a true gamer.

    Re: true gamers

    Noticing a few females standing up & taking up the title of Gamer. Good to see. Heck, If I get this thing gaming again & then get my new one, my sister will become my sniping backup in BF2142. It doesn't matter what gender you are, your a Gamer if you love playing games for entertainment. Consoles Gamer, PC Gamer, Board Gamer, Tabletop Gamer, as long as you in it for the fun, then it's cool.

    Those guys who play purely to win though, they slip away from the title of Gamer to me. That's when you're in danger of becoming an A$$hole Elitest. Games are designed so people can have fun. I get blown away on BF2142 pretty often, but I still enjoy it. My Blood Angel successors & Tau occasionally end up as nothing than a speed bump, but it's just a game. I've met & played a few A$$hole Elitests, even learnt how to play 40K against one with my Marines, & it's never fun their playing for. Mind you, their attitude does make each victory all that much more sweeter...

    i kinda have to disagree here ... i play for victory and i'm having fun with it .. i feel very relieved while winning on others (i feel guilty many times though) but that doesn't make me unworthy to be called a gamer ...
