I am a gamer.
Don't you talk to your elders like that sonny.

"...sounds like you are a kid."

Is that why so many nerds/sheeple accepted the label gamer?

Only confused people believe having fun is age restricted.

Aren't you at least almost as old as Doctor Who too? (He was born in 63)

Crikey, you've been busy :) Same age as my first wife. I waited five years extra before sliding down the slippery chute of life, so to speak.

Because it means gambler. Also because it was never used until Interplay used it. Then some lazy column writers capitalized on it. I don't mind the term video gamer, retro gamer, etc. Just not plain 'gamer'. I hate when outsiders hijack the original monikers to suit their ends and all the newcomers and knuckleheads just go along with it.
Good point, we'll also call our 'football' soccer then just to please you ! ;)

Never heard of gamer being called 'gambler'. When 95% of people here are from the UK/Europe then surely gamer is acceptable ?!

Tell you what, i wont use the word gamer if you dont use the term 'fanny pack' as thats just plain ridiculous.

Not surprised you have a lot of anger if youre a Detroit Lions fan ;)

i'm going to be polite here and not say anything along the lines of "i hope not"... oops!

(Actually, that's pretty harsh... it's not that i don't like Carmel, it's just that having a conversation with him is a bit like talking to a Markov chainer...!)

I am REALLY REALLY shocked that he hasn't arrived here!!!!!!

After the fun that we have had over at RF - I thought this would be his next port of call. Actually, some of what he harks on about would go down very well here - and cause plenty of 'discussion' :lol:

TMR - do you know him? :o
