An all-inclusive term to describe the maligned, often-misunderstood group of people that regularly
engage in video, computer, or tabletop games.
Though the percentage of people
in such activities
in recent years, a certain stigma still surrounds those elite few who can call themselves "true gamers". These are the people
you see getting together for a rousing session of Dungeons & Dragons once a week, or who you will regularly
see planted in front of a TV or computer monitor, immersed in the bliss of gamedom.
This is not to say gamers are the bespectacled
the stereotype has long
been. We are everywhere, in many
shapes and forms. We live and breathe the likes
of Halo, Warcraft, Unreal Tournament, Mage: The Ascension, and more. And the gamer is here
I like Halo 2, but that Paul is a real
gamer. He skipped class and beat it in two days!
Participants in the tabletop roleplaying game Dungeons
the title of "gamer".
