A True Gamer is one who consistently spends time playing PC and/or console games, at least three to four times per week. Hours spent playing can vary from only an hour per session to multiple hours per session. This consistent behavior must be present for a long period of time (i.e. more than 4 –6 months).
A True Gamer plays to have fun with the game and to have fun with friends. He/she enjoys winning, yet mostly is concerned with the pleasure of the entertainment.
A True Gamer also usually makes time to “fit in” a little time to play, no matter how busy he/she is. Playing games is fun and relaxing for the True Gamer.
A True Gamer enjoys playing a game AFTER finishing it; maybe not spend the same number of hours as before beating it, but will not sell the game after completing the main objectives.
A True Gamer DOES NOT buy a game, play and beat it in a span of one month, then never plays is again, then continues on with his/her life (this person could be considered a “regular gamer” or a “recreational gamer”).
More details regarding the “gamer” genre:
- A Gamer is one who plays PC and/or console games; one that may only play a game “once in a while.”
- A Recreational Gamer is one who plays only a select few types of games (e.g. sports, RPGs, or first-person shooter) and will only play the games when it is convenient to him/her (a.k.a Casual Gamer)
- A Hardcore Gamer is one who dedicates all free time to PC and/or console games. This person DOES NOT h...
Read the first post. i would like to add some following statements:
a person who does NOT enjoy laughing at other people's corpses, and doesnt write "crap" "shit" "fuck" or "noob" in game.
when a gamer gets killed, he does not get pissed. he understands that he CAN be beaten, and says: "wow, youre pretty good" or "good job, you have nice skills"
he does NOT say : "omg ur a pfukin r-tard you cant do sheet i was actually leting u win omg piss of go fu*k w/ur dog, shite noob"
-notice the E in the word SHIT.-
this happened to me once in Guild wars; the dude put me on Ignore and called me names. typicall 11 year old non-gamer attitude. True gamers are cool and stay cool.
Look, listen, and learn. Being a true gamer isn't about playing every game," A TRUE gamer plays from the HEART." They Play Games the way their supposed to be played. They don't play halo online to get 1st place all the time, they play because they want to. They play to play. And they learn from their mistakes and slowly they become better and better, THAT'S WHAT MAKES YOU A TRUE GAMER. Not all that other BS.
Your're playing Halo you keep getting killed by the same guy. Like i said learn from your mistakes, observe that player watch his/her moves. Give him/her some props say something like your good man then maybe ya'll will team up in another game. THAT'S AN EXAMPLE OF TRUE GAMING RIGHT THERE, being a team even though your on the blue he/she's on the red. Not being a big noob like when someone keeps killing you you say "YOU DUMB MOTHER F'ER STOP SHOOTING ME YOU WORTHLESS PIECE OF", yeah well you know. Don't do that it's bogus and people are going to think you're every bad word in the dictionary. So there you have it. Straight from the true gamer himself.
There are a lot of definitions for this word and pretty much most of them are right, but they're all leaving out a vital detail : Gaming isn't just playing one company's systems and only the systems of that one company. To be a true gamer, you accept that a good game is a good game and you shouldn't give a crap what system it's on.
Guy 1: I only play games for PS3.
Guy 2 : Not me I'm a true gamer. I play all good games. Xbox, Nintendo, Play Station, PC, whatever.
A collective mythical being, largely based in fanboy rhetoric, whose attributes and opinions change to match the speaker's views. Also known as "Real Gamer", "tr00 gamer", or any misspellings or variations thereof.
Sometimes used by self-proclaimed "hardcore gamers" when trying to convince other greasy individuals of the evils of casual gaming.
Gamer: xbox leik totally blows. everyone knows that the TRUE GAMERS are moving to PS3. see u l8r xbots
Gamer: all the REAL GAMERS hate where the wii is taking us: CASUAL JUNCTION. don't buy one, galaxy sucks anyway
A Truegamer is someone who spends a significant portion of his time playing computer games, whether on a games console (PS3
etc) or on a PC
. Likewise, a Truegamer spends a large amount of his income on computer games and related stuff (hardware, peripherals etc). Most of all, a Truegamer NEVER cheats in an online multiplayer
setting. Once you do that, you give up your status as a Truegamer, for good.
Anyone who uses an aimbot
, a wallhack
, or uses any other kind of cheat to win against opponents in an online multiplayer setting, is not a Truegamer.
A True Gamer is someone who likes to play a lot of video games on PC AND Consoles, especially Action-RPG, FPS, TPS, BTA, Survival Horror... he prefers the hardcore games for the challlenge and the fun, with the controller of his choice, but without motion controller.more...
On PC, a True Gamer always try to play in the best conditions, 60 images per second, the best image quality with settings between high and ultra in 1080P or more, so for his goals he will buy a new graphic card every time necessary to always be on top.
Also, a True Gamer buys every big consoles, the ones which are made by Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo (but not the Wii), he buys them always in the early years of sales, and to play in priority to exclusives titles.
A True Gamer refuse to play casuals games, refuse to move his body for playing, so he refuse to play with motion controller like Kinect, Wiimote or PSMove because theses are made for casuals gamers to play casuals games like Wii Sports.
Outside some cases, a True Gamer never starts a game of nowadays in normal or easy mode, he always take on minimum hard difficulty, or even survivor if available.
At the same price, a True Gamer always prefers games in box, and prefers games that you can play offline, so he's happy to know he can still play in 20 years.
A True Gamer always want the next generation of consoles to be a lot more powerful, not Underpowered.
A True Gamer prefers mature games and male characters, like Kazuma Kiryu in Yakuza series.
