The only videogame I play is World of Warcraft, I play it a lot but I'm in no means a gamer. To me, gamers are a social group that are unified in videogames and the joy of playing them. They geek about the latest Assassin's Creed, they worship Legend of Zelda like a religion, they judge every new videogame with a fine-toothed comb while others silently nod to themselves.
- Own no other gaming systems, only a laptop
- Never played Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, and dabbled in Mario 64 when it first came out.
- The last shooter game I played was Gears of War 2 back when it was first released, I played it a lot with my friends at the time.
- I was a little old for Pokemon when it first came out, It never caught on with me or my friends, my now wife introduced me to it a few years ago and I love it, but haven't played it since summer of 2012.
- Dont have a Steam account, Gamestop account, etc. etc. Only pay for WoW.
I play WoW as a casual but do play whenever I have a lot of freetime. Between raising a new family, working full time 50 hours a week and spending time with my friends I don't have time to play anything BUT WoW. Prior to WoW, I rarely played any videogames or read about them, though I'm up to date on all things WoW. The last game I played that wasn't WoW was Super Smash Brothers Brawl on a Wii during Christmas, I didn't know where any of the buttons were.
People make the instant conclusion that I'm a gamer because I play WoW, then get irritated when I don't know what Ocarina of Time is, anything about Halo nor do I know anything about PAX or Comiccon or anything.
I'm ranting because I got accused of being retarded, stupid etc. etc. Internet insulted (oh my) because I could only list about 4 of the logos in this picture
I don't want to be associated as "a gamer" as cool as some of them are, because I simply do not enjoy playing videogames. WoW is a rare exception because of how attached it became to my life.
