What Type of Gamer Are You

By Luis Zacarias

There are many types of gamers, Like variables, gamer types are not set. Some gamers can fit into multiple types. What I have learned is that no gamer is constant. Here are some examples of the gamer types I have encountered over the years. This opinion piece is meant to shine the spotlight on our disturbing trend to classify ourselves. (Culture)

I am a fat, working, married, military, hardcore gamer.

I think Angry Gamer most describes me.

"Angry Gamer – Hates all games continues to play them."

Of course I don't hate every game, but I certainly hate most of the games I buy.

Kalowest  +   1127d ago
I'm a hardcore, fat, unemployed gamer.
hotrider12  +   1127d ago
im a FUN WHATEVER game gamer.

No offence to anyone, but what's with the high percentage of lardarses commenting on this article?!

Way to go for reinforcing the stereotype; that hardcore gamers in general, are a bunch of overweight sad-sacks...

You guys forgot the Chatty Gamer - guy that won't shut up during the game.
ginsunuva  +   1127d ago
I play games for the game and because I can appreciate the art of games, not because I have to be playing games constantly for just for the sake of gameplay.
If there are no interesting games, I won't play any.

< Fat Gamer
NeotheGamer  +   1127d ago
To the person that disagreed with me, do you want a picture to prove that i am fat?
ItsMeAgain  +   1127d ago
Mate, you have to learn not to care about the disagrees. All kinds of reason why a person would receive disagrees, just don't worry about them. This is the internet, expect what is not expected.

Hence, someone could disagree with me for telling you this which you should have known already.
D_RoyJenkins  +   1127d ago
I'm a hardcore gamer
Bathyj  +   1127d ago
I guess working hardcore describes me best.

But I dont really care about achievements or trophies. I play games for the fun of playing them, not for the little "boop" reward. Would that make me extra hardcore?

I am the hardcore gamer. I have actually told people that call of duty 2 is the hardest one to beat on Veteran difficulty.
SoldierX  +   1127d ago
I believe this as well...Sniper in he tower was a nightmare.
jreeves82  +   1127d ago
To the people that gave me disagreed votes about call of duty 2 Bean the hardest to beat on Veteran I asked them this. How many of you have actually beat in all of them on Veteran difficulty you like I have?
DERKADER  +   1127d ago
I'm the type of gamer that doesn't want to be labeled. As gaming becomes more main stream these dumb labels will start to disappear.
AmkOwns  +   1127d ago
I'm a cave man gamer
Venomousfatman  +   1127d ago
I'm in a different category you forgot to include.

EPIC Gamer -- A Gamer who rises above all other categories by using no way as way. They play games and enjoy them outside of everything else.
Krew_92  +   1127d ago
I'm the type of gamer that plays video games... you know.
prototypeknuckles  +   1127d ago

Treian  +   1127d ago

NastyDaddeh  +   1127d ago

Kyosuke_Sanada  +   1127d ago

Viva piñata gamer
Tonester925  +   1127d ago
I just open my butt
BitbyDeath  +   1127d ago
None of those seem to suit me, should have one for co-op gamer. Games more often with wife and/or friends
r21  +   1127d ago
Im just a gamer :)
Zichu  +   1127d ago
I don't really know to be honest... I just enjoy playing games, Im not playing games because i work (i do work though). I enjoy achievements/trophies.

Why dont gamers just game and have fun instead of trying to be put into groups or get forced into groups.

I'm a random gamer. Kind of streaky. I'll be into a certain genre or type for maybe 4-6 months, and then be into something else a bit later.

I like all different types of games though.

Art Style & Music matter more than graphics.
AmayaAi  +   1127d ago
Sexy and Hardcore xD
J0Scorpionake  +   1127d ago
Interesting article :), Working Gamer defines me well but I must say that I'm kind of Sequels Gamer too.
