Vox Pop September 2013

shandog137 illuminates an important subject on our identities as gamers. Classifications tend to divide people into groups while at the same time grouping similar people together for distinction. It's an embedded part of human psychology to separate other people into categories, and then to evaluate how much someone is characteristic of that group.
Gamers do this all the time, particularly when the rules of games tend to bring out from players their more competitive side and rank each other by their prowess with games. I believe that Yossarian29's definition of a "gamer" as someone who wants to have conversations about video games is an apt one. I consider myself a "gamer" because I play many different types of game genres, own a wide variety of consoles, spend a good portion of my disposable income on games, and well, it's my damn job!
