Im just interested in seeing what people define real gamers as in this community.
Someone who completes the game with 100%. He collects every possible items and stuff with no cheats. He doesn't skip scenes although he watched them. He doesn't eat, he is on infusion. And he sleeps with his one eye opened.
Someone who pulls an all-nighter for a game.
a person who keeps on playing the game IN the dreams whene he is asleep.... or can play in his sleep XD
I think I'll go with anyone who has played any game again after already beating it 100% in the past
Any gamer that exists in a physical sense.
Anyone who really enjoys playing and takes time to beat game properly, actually I don't think you can define "real" gamer..
Plays the game and is dedicated to finish it.
Ditches the game if it's too hard, but will play it again after a while
Plays it already when it's available and when it's obtained by the player.
Plays the game to the fullest
Will have all of the gaming facilities that he can have
Is a temper
Will not back down from any game (but #2)
Will not cheat to "cleanly" finish the game.
Someone who spends their entire day inside playing video games all day.
Finishing at least two or three games a week.
Fortunately, that's not me!
not what i expected but pretty similar.
@toni &destructobot: people seem to be using the term "real" gamers alot now, especially with the wii and ds. People are bringing up the argument that nintendo isn't designed for "real gaming" anymore. so i just thought what a "real" gamer is.
In that sense it would be easier to define what a "real gamer" isn't.
A real gamer isn't a toddler, a kid that doesn't usually play video games, or (with a few exceptions) either of those children's grandparents. Nintendo is trying to get a bigger market by appealing to people that don't want a challenge or real depth of play, they want their systems to be more like the jumble on the comics page of the newspaper, or like a coloring book. More like a toy or a deck of cards than a real video game.
In terms of sales they have succeeded, but they have handed the serious video game market to Sony and Microsoft in the process.
I think of a "real" gamer as anyone who plays "real" games. I mean, from watching that King of Kong movie, you don't have to play on the latest hardware with 1080p graphics and whatnot to be a gamer. Anyone who can spend countless hours mastering a video game must be "real" gamer, right? So if your realm happens to be on the Wii, who am I to say, "Oh, you're not really a gamer. That's just casual gaming." That's so ignorant and elitist.
Maybe someone who likes games?
Uhm, plays games every waking second? Also eats food that is blended through a straw and drinks from one of those awesome hats, and has his sofa as a toilet. (ugh, reminds me of all those sofa topics)
A real gamer, cant be define with words but only by her (or his) actions. There are some attributes that a Real Gamer possess though, but just because someone possess one or several of those attributes doesn't mean they are a "Real Gamer".
One who does not see different consoles; only opportunities to expand their gaming experience.
One who will not pass up a game because game review sites say it's not good.
One who will not pass up a game because users on other sites say it's not good.
One who will play a game to play a game.
A real gamer would be playing his/her video games rather than spending their time on a site like GBAtemp.
not necessarily. wouldn't they come here to: discuss the game, ask for help, help others, brag about how they beat it, complain about it, etc..?
My bad, I read "HARDCORE" gamer for some reason when I glanced at the topic title, not "real" gamer.
Not sure what a "real" gamer means but yea any casual or "real" gamer would visit this site for all the reasons mentioned above.
Websters dictionary defines real as... not artificial.
a gamer... that is not artificial.
