Re: Lets take back our games, a call to arms for decent men.

Do golfers consider minature golf, golf? I'm no pro at gaming but those are just not games in the realm of pc games or console gamers.

Though as I said I'm not considering smart phone games and farmville as games.

Why not?

Because if someone posted something about some gay Facebook app game in this forum it would get deleted.

Perhaps they aren't 'real' enough for your definition, but I don't know of a different term you could use to describe what they are.

You could, but couldn't a 'real' game be labeled thus?

Sure. So could watching paint dry for some people.

And 2 kids running around playing tag is also considered a game.

Anyway, it's better to just split it into casual games vs (video? hardcore? console/PC?/something something) games.

They're all games but there's still some difference.

Exactly. PC games, console games, handheld games, social networking games, casual games, etc. They're all games, and anyone who plays them is a gamer.

Everyone games, not everyone is a gamer. Did you catch the nuance?

I would have said the exact same thing to you in reference to this:

It's like you're arguing with yourself!

Yeah... got me.

It really depends on the context of how you throw the term around. PC gamers have a stereotype, but what makes online games addictive (the competitive aspect) is not unique to PC games.

I get your point. But I think when people call someone a gamer, they're thinking more like the people who post on this and the console board, and less like my mom, who (in her words) "does farmville on facebook". She also likes Twilight; I don't think that makes her a horror movie fan.

Ernest W. Adams seems to be afflicted with ADHD and is mentally ill.

F-in shit rambles on forever, poorly constructed... That whole thing can be summarized in like 2 paragraphs tops.

Good god... learn to focus your thoughts before you write that diarrhea down...

Most women do not game.

Welcome to 1982 I guess? I'd better let the GF and my sister know, they'll be heartbroken. Last stat numbers I saw they made up between 25-40% of the market depending on the genre and the system.

Second life is not a game.

Any EVE player could credibly accuse all of us of not being real gamers.

Why is 50 shades of grey so popular?

Some would consider the process of courting, copulating, and discarding a 'game'....
