Do you consider yourself to be a "gamer"?
>>
I DIDN'T DO IT
>>
Don't have a cow man.
>>
As a matter of fact, yes I do consider myself a gamer. And that does not make me a sexist muhsoggyknee harasser or any of the bullshit lies that sjw and gaming journalists are telling everyone.
>>
I consider myself a fuckboi
>>
I'm more of a gamesman. Gamer is too gender neutral.
>>
Children call it being a "gamer". I consider myself a game aficionado. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go pick up my fedora from the dry cleaners
>>
Yeah because I like to talk about video games with my other video game friends.

No, op.

>Do you consider yourself to be a "hobby-er"?
no i do not

I am a very big fan of them videogames, yes.
That said, the word gamer has been corrupted by the narrative and became one of those words or expressions you can never quite say without a little sting in the back of your head because it conjures a lot of technically unrelated but annoying imagery.
Such as "wicked sense of humor".

Which hurts more? Other people's shame or your own shame you have for yourself.
>>
>>322718224
For what purpose?

Seriously it's not talking about vidya without sounding autistic.

>you play video games
>yeah when I have free time from work


Also to answer OP, yes I call myself a gamer.
>>
I know the same person has been posting this image because it's supposed to be a gif and it's pissing me off that it isn't a gif

fuck you man, I need that animated

fuck you

>>322717065
Yes, I play video games on console, handheld (in the privacy of my house thanks Quentin) and PC and spend about 2-3 hours daily on vidya
>>
Gamer is a term only used by normalfags who ocasionally play CoD and Skyrim

My own shame. Especially when I'm in a boardroom filled with higher-ups in expensive suits talking about serious corporate issues and all I'm thinking about is hentai and vidya.

No, not really.

That said I do have 127hrs in the last two weeks on steam.

Gamer is like nigga, at the begining was created to offend
>>
I don't mind when the term is used to describe people who play video games, but it gets on my nerves when people use it to describe their lifestyle.
>"I am a gamer"
Then there's the whole industry devoted to marketing to these people who call themselves gamers.
>gamer glasses
>gamer gloves
>gamer grub
>gaming headphones
>gaming mousepads
>>
>>322717065
No, I do a lot of other things. I spend more time at the gym every day than vidya. I probably spend like 0.5-1 hour on vidya each day. I barely even touch my PS3 and 4 these days.
>>
>>322717065
Well I play games. What else would I call myself?
>>
I use the term Ludophile when I explain my hobby to people.

>>322718395
Exactly. Labels like gamer, geek, and nerd are dumb. You can like games without needing to be called something.
>>
I am not a gaymer. I play video games, sometimes.
Playing video games doesn't warrant a disgusting label that has a lot of negative associations attached to it.
I'd rather be called a ''fourchanner'' than be labeled as a gaymer. I do spend more time on 4chan than playing video games.

Pretty much this. If someone asks me out of the blue if I play video games, I probably already know them well enough that they know I'm a pretty average guy and not too weird. Video games would just come off as my hobby at that point.

Granted, I don't go into detail about exactly how much time I invest. 20 hours in a game is probably considered "a lot of time in a video game" to most people.

>>322717065
Although it is easily my biggest hobby I try not to identify myself with gamers in social situations
Only really my family and some friends who I game with really know I like videogames and even then I try to give off a normie persona
I play and enjoy videogames more then most people on /v/ I imagine, but I hide my power level, so only on a anonymous image board would I call my self a "gamer" and even then I hate that word for whatever reason
>>
>>322717065

what sick jams is he listening to?
>>
>>322720984
This never gets old.
Every time I see this. I like video games less.
And that is good.
>>
> considering games a hobby
Embarassing. Get a real hobby. I like vidya like I like tv it kills time and I love some forms of it, but I dont consider either a hobby.

You wouldnt call yourself a tv-er.

no
I'm just a guy
That prefers to be alone most of the time
And not deal with social bullshit unless I absolutely have to (work)
>>
>>322717065
No because I only play a video game once every two weeks
>>
>>322721607
What´s a hobby then?
>>
>>322722586
Good question. I dont know what should or shouldnt be considered a hobby, but I know whst my hobbies are. Im a wrestler/boxer.

I guess anything where you improve functional skills or produce some kind of material, but you do it for fun?
