How can when be a fake gamer? If you play games you are gamer but some people only play casual games like bejeweled and farmville and never play any core games.

Posers can't handle my CS 1.6/Unreal/Quake skills. All these COD and HALO kids don't know crap about the good stuff. Thus, I have no respect for them. You miss so much if you dedicate your self to one genre. Same with movies, just because a movie gets 2 stars doesn't mean it is bad.

Kids on those games need to do some research on real guns.

I can't play COD for two reasons.
1) It sucks, all the new games are is a 60 dollar map pack with a impossible to follow excuse of a story line.
2) People need to realize the difference between a clip and a magazine.

You can actually blame action movies for using the term "clip" to describe a magazine.

It's also kinda sad to see what Call of Duty has become: it was originally a very serious game about the horror of war, and now it's five hours of WHOOOOOOOOHOOOOO SNOWMOBILE CHASE FUCK YEAH. They've gone from surprising realism (a friend used camouflage and a hell of a lot of patience to crawl across an entire map to sneak up on a camping sniper) to a game where you can make your footsteps silent, you scramble radar just by being near an enemy, and you can magically extend your melee range. XD

I personally think if one becomes competent enough at a game and gets paid to play games then they're pretty successful. Though a person that is addicted to gaming for the sake of being addicted and not achieving anything outside of the game status is one of the lowest of the lowest scum upon the planet.

Well, I'm a real gamer, but for certain games only. Like for the Gears of War Series, Ninja Gaiden series, Devil May Cry series, and Tales of series, I'm a real gamer. I play those games regardless of achievements or trophies, or what other people think. I've put over 100 hours of gameplay into each of those games, and I love it. Real gamers play for fun and sport. Not for attention.............................................................................Unless you're getting paid for it. lol.

i think this sums it up pretty good " thoroughly and understands them on a mechanical level"

I don't give a crap who's a real gamer or not. If you like playing games and dedicate most of your time to games then i'd say you're a gamer. On the other hand if you don't and would rather not sit and play games then you are a more social character who likes going out and about. Simple.

Oh goodness, I absolutely despise it when someone rags on me about me being a casual player and it's never because of the games I play, it's because of how I play them! So what if I don't like dealing with a bunch of trolls with online play? I bought the game so I could play it, me as an individual! I don't need someone else spitting on that kind of experience unless it's local play. Either way, causal gaming vs hardcore - doesn't exist. Makes people feel better about their hobby if they label it.

This is just another way for people to stroke their egos, flaunt and chest thump their pride. When they can't achieve anything else meaningful..
