(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.

Example 1: At first it was suspected that the bomb in the journalist's house was the work of Al Quida, but when it became clear that the journalist in question covered video games, it was clear that it came from gamers.

A gamer is a person who think that he has spent so much time playing games that he deserves a title: Gamer

The gamer is usually some type of regualar game user with his main focus on competative gaming. A gamer plays to win and like to talk about their top score, lvl, gear etc etc.

Gamers, as has been said, are usually playing online, since singleplayer wont give them satisfaction of saying that they are better than you in a certain game since it does not contain a mulitplayer function.

Places you usually see gamers in are: WoW, LoL, HoN, TF2, BF2, MW, MW:BO and online minigames that has a score board system.

Gamers also buys all kind of "gaming equipment" for there computer, such as : Keyboard with light coming from it and extra set of button, Mouse with light coming from it and extra set of buttons and a large mousepad for 100 $.

The main diffrence of a gamer, and somone that plays games are that gamers are usually self indulgent assholes that play for win and top score, wheras the regular player just plays for fun.
