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."

(n.) a "Gamer" is someone, male or female, who plays video games often. There is no limit to certain games, nor is there a limit to certain consoles. Playing on a computer does not make one more of a "gamer" than one who plays on different consoles. Someone who plays shooter type games does not make them more of a "gamer" than one who plays racing games, either. There are different types of gamers who play different types of games at different lengths of time.
Jimmy is a gamer, he plays Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto regularly on his Xbox 360. Billy is a gamer too, who is always playing a variety of indie games and Minecraft. Jimmy says Billy is not a gamer because indie games are not hardcore. Billy says Jimmy is not a real gamer because he still plays on a console. Both need to go suck a cock.
