Are You A True Gamer? 30 Signs That You Are

Are you a True Gamer? It seems like an odd question, but with the flood of casual games for both Facebook and iPhone not to mention the Wii’s popularity among the non gaming crowd it is actually a very appropriate question.  Now, anyone who so much as plays a video game could call themselves a “Gamer” but we know they are nothing but posers. Soccer moms flinging cutesy birds around their iPad doesn’t take the same skill as slaying a dragon in Skyrim. Are you a True Gamer? I am, and I’m damn proud of it. For those of you still unsure if you are or not, I’ve compiled a list of 30 signs that will let you know whether you or someone you know is a True Gamer. In the past I have done a similar list of 25 things, but here on Leviathyn you get an extra 5! Now don’t fret if all of these don’t apply to you, after all I have been pwning noobs since the Colecovision. Maybe you have heard of me, I’m Tony the Gamer Dad and this is my list of 30 signs that you are a True Gamer, just like me!

    Looking up to Billy Mitchell either makes you a true gamer, or some sort of spider-alien who is still learning human customs.  Definitely one of those two.  🙂
