Are You The Games You Play?

From EGMR, "I regularly wonder what defines us as gamers. Are we the games we play, or not? Normally this is a topic I often stray away from because it’s so broad in its nature and discussing it can be quite troublesome. I think often gamers become preoccupied with the games that other gamers play, and see it as some sort of indicator about a gamer’s status as a “gamer”." (Culture, Dark Souls, Half-Life, Half-Life 2)

I'm a gamer "someone who plays games" i'm NOT a hardcore gamer (my idea of a hardcore gamer is someone who plays EVERYTHING) I like rock hard challenging games (which some may think is what a hardcore gamer is, I don't)

There's loads of supposedly great games I haven't played, Final Fantasy 7, pretty much every game on the Xbox, only ever played one Zelda game on the Gameboy, not played Half Life 2 for more than an hour (PS3 version sucked)

I'm just someone who doesn't need to be surrounded by gaming, I don't need to play everything, I play what excites me which isn't a great deal to be honest, other than the Witcher 3 (I would like to add The Division but i've lost faith in Ubisoft)

The only time I can recall buying a game based on other peoples opinions is Demon's Souls, I normally look at something and KNOW within seconds if it's for me or not, so i'll comment "meh, that Titanfall looked awight, probably something I would rent" which would be my HONEST opinion "WHAT, you're just a fanboy mofo"
