I think I have an interesting stance on this. While I wouldn't call someone who plays Clash Royale or whatever all the time a "gamer," a game is a game nonetheless and thus they're admittedly undeniably a gamer. 

 

Also "gamer" is a stupid term.

 

EDIT: Also wouldn't call myself a gamer even though I play games on a computer, on my phone, and on my 3DS. I don't play enough games with enough frequency, plus I hate the term gamer. I have a "gaming" keyboard but I didn't get it because it's called gaming. Same goes for mouse.

Yes, Gaming is gaming. Doesn't matter how you consume your interactive media.

Same as you can be a gamer if you play arcade games.

Those #PCMASTERRACE people can really just stop this. If you play games on your console, your a gamer. If you play your 3DS, your a gamer. If you play your NES, your a gamer. If you play a game, your a gamer...

Does the term "gamer" even matters? Do people think that term makes one a better player over the other? Seriously, unless thats for some sort of professional orientation, in the gaming industry, i dont understand why its relevant.

I think it came from people that think people who play games on a computer is not normal and is nerdy and SHOULD DIE! (sorry,I got carried away...). It's like people that call you a nerd when you can use technology...

I feel sorry for Nvidia, because people hate that Nintendo consoles are under powered in this age. Maybe they shouldn't have made a deal with Nintendo...

Thank you. Someone gets the memo. People think nerds are lonely, desperate, weak people...

People don't understand the difference between:

 - A console that knows what it is and priced accordingly.

and

 - A console that tries to be a $2000 state of the art gaming system.

 

The deal with Nintendo has nothing to do with the hardware decision by Nintendo. Nintendo goes to Nvidia, and says: "We are looking for this, with these requirements, at this price ideally, and we want this many... what can you do for us?". If Nvidia goes: "Oh, you are targeting the game console to be $300, so your budget for the CPU/GPU is $50... ok here is a GeForce 4 MX!!! LOLz!", then this isn't Nintendo fault (assuming that they get similar hardware for the price with other manufactures).

 

Nvidia chips are known to be expensive. They don't sale things for cheap to anyone. Why do you think every console switched to AMD? AMD offer is cheaper for the same performance (and now helped further with their APU chip). Nintendo is clearly done with AMD and IBM after a VERY long relationship. As a consumer, we can only hope that Nvidia is open to actually moving their Tegra chip and giving a good deal and not be greedy here.

If you play any interactive video game on a occasion, you are a gamer in my book.

Calling a person not a gamer because the phone game is perhaps too primitive to your liking or is on a phone, is like calling a person that likes to play racing games, or fps, or whatever genre you don't like as "none-gamers".

 

Gamer is a gamer. Creating the environment of "You are not worthy enougth to be called a 'gamer' ", is silly, it only divides people which doesn't encourage them to play other genres, or interested in trying to under "gamers". The "elitist" mentality is what creates failure and monkery against another group.

 

For example, people laughing/insulting at eSports, people laughing/insulting at "gamers", and the reverse is done. Heck, I believe, that Linux lack of growth in the consumer market and on PCs is due of the mentality that the community has of not being opened, and as a result, in the PC space, Linux has not really grown since the 90's. Very sad.

 

Whether you play on console, mobile phone, or PC you are a gamer. If you like Nintendo games, then excellent! If you like Angry Birds! Awesome! If you like Witcher 3, COD, or DOTA, or Need for Speed, it doesn't matter, you are a gamer, and all are welcomed, at least in book.

 

NOTE: When I say "gamer", I am talking about in the context of video games. But if you play board games, card games, slot machines, you are a gamer as well.

Sadly, yes.

But IMO it depends what you play.

 

I for example play GT2 on my phone with an emulator, or pokemon sapphire/ruby.

Which are games because they require at least an understanding what you are actually doing.

 

With most mobile games sadly, that isn't the case. If you can let a robot play the game with a couple of simple If X then Y functions, it's not a game...
