Imo, a gamer is someone who continues to play games, no matter how big, small, famous, indie, or otherwise.

I dont believe someone who says they "played that mario game one time" or "played Tetris once" and then never games again is a gamer.

My aunt is a gamer, my grandma is not. Why? Coz my aunt plays games every now and again, my grandma? Only once.

A gamer hAs all available consoles otherwise he will be labelled as a fanboy for a certain preference right?! Oh well, I'm on a budget due to bills and partying so I just have a ps3 and that fulfills all my gaming, music and movie needs.

I'll never fault a person for only owning one console for financial purposes or because they only need one.

I will do it, if its simply out of blind loyalty to a company, and ignoring everything else out on the market.

A true gamer IMO
Is some one who Is open to most genre's and actually cares about the Industry and the quality of games being released

I couldnt agree more. What, why, and how another gamer plays does not effect me. So who cares? Im proud to label myself a gamer, simply for the fact that i love video games. I grew up playing them, and i shall grow old playing them.

I try not to label others. I have found that you will always end up sounding stupid and insecure.

Gamers have a passion for gaming. That is all.

Could be one game, could be one genre, it could be hundreds of games and every genre.

a real gamer is someone who enjoys other games beside call of duty and madden

The whole point of the article... was to curb attitudes such as this.

Enjoying Call of Duty and Madden makes you the same as someone who only enjoys Final Fantasy or Mario or puzzle games.
