Real Gamer (My definition)
1) Willing to give any game, if it is half decent, a shot, not deluded by some FPS superiority complex, PC elitism, or Xbox/PS3 fanboy syndrome
2) Doesn't bag on game without even playing it
3) Doesn't call them self a "real gamer". If you are a real gamer, people can tell by the way you talk/play
4) Willing to accept new ideas in a sequel if they're good, and not bag simply cause it changes the way you play (i.e adding armor abilities to halo reach made a lot of people butt hurt for some reason)
5) Plays more then 1-2 genre, and doesn't try to compare games that aren't the same (i.e Call of Duty vs Halo, completely different genres, so don't compare)
6) Doesn't just hop on the bandwagon, has legitimate personal interest in a game that they want to buy

I have a somewhat decent gaming computer, a PS3, an Xbox 360, and a Wii. I can pretty easily point out the things i like and don't like about each and i really see no reason to bag on any one of them just because my friend's say i need to pick a favourite. To me the main point about being a real gamer, is that you are unbiased to anything gaming related. These days, the gaming community is contaminated with fanboys of all kinds making stupid excuses as to why "Call of Duty is sooo much better then Battlefield" or "HAR HAR XBOX GETS RROD ALL THE TIME". Seriously people need to stop jumping on the band wagon and think for themselves, and this goes for all of today's consumers, not just gamers.

That's perfectly fine, it's not your slice of pie and you tried it. What i hate though is how people give all these lame ass excuses as to why it sucks, like the fact it doesn't any good games. It has good games, but just because it doesn't have super mainstream shooters and stuff doesn't mean it's worse

Definition of GAMER
1 : a player who is game; especially : an athlete who relishes competition

There is no such thing as a fake gamer, so as long as they fit the definition above, EVERYONE is a real gamer.

Agreed if the person that likes games I have no problem with. If the person is being a complete douche about people who play COD and halo just GTFO why are you excluding people from playing games, stop hating and start playing.
