I consider myself a gamer. I have spent a lot of time playing ever since I was kid. Even now I play at my workplace and risk pretty much. It's one of my favorite activities and I wouldn't give it up.
The very first video game I picked up was "Putt Putt" on PC. It sounds ridiculous now because it was a kiddy game, but I was six years old at the time and fell in love with it. From there I moved onto consoles. I have not been separated from video games since. I suppose I could call myself a gamer. I do play video games daily and spend most of my money on them...hehe.
Currently, I'm pretty obsessed with "Dragon's Crown," but my favorite game is Dota 2 at the moment.
Well, haven't we all started with "stupid" childish games? But the gaming industry has evolved, and so did we. It's amazing to see how much time could change everything.
I also play some old games which I used to play when I was a child. Only for the feels, and to recall the memories of those beautiful times. Poet me.
I wouldn't say I'm a hardcore gamer or anything, but I do think that I'm a gamer. I prefer PC games since that's where most of the games I own are. Otherwise I'm a playstation person.
Im a fan of alpha and beta testing games, i was a long time lineage 2 player and am playing tera online until archeage and star citizen comes out. if you play any of these games in retail/alpha/beta let me know
