Primarily used as a term for a person who plays video games. Various levels of gamer exist, though this term is usually used for two groups:

1) People who have a life that is based around gaming to a point where they have no outside life. Usually obsessed with MMORPG games like World of Warcraft.

2) People who have a hobby of playing video games and take enough time to be good at them, but do not let them absorb their lives. Contrary to popular belief, these people are functioning human beings. They have jobs, friends, and enjoy some other parts of life.
1) "Dude, I haven't seen Dave in a few days. You know where he has been?"

"I think he said something about trying to get a few mages to 80 or something. I don't know, I never talk to him. He is such a gamer"

2) "Hey dude, wanna play some Left 4 Dead later?"

"Sure, why not. Have to go out with my girlfriend tonight, but after I should be free."
