A gamer is someone who plays games someone who owns a gaming device is a gamer

No it isn't.


A gamer is someone who plays more than COD and GTA and will even take time out their day just to play for a few hours. 

A casual gamer is someone who will play only a few times a week if they even have time with games such as GTA and COD seeing that they are so easy to learn its pathetic. 


Casual Gamer, can you see the word there, a casual gamer is still a gamer, a casual one that plays games casually. There a different types of gamers but they are still gamers. the only way for someone who owns a gaming device not to be a gamer is if they never use the device for games.

What is the difference between a gamer and someone that owns a gaming device?

One wants the smug satisfaction of being 'superior' due to the fact they play video games. The latter just plays video games.

A gamer has video games in his blood. A casual gamer is looking for something to do. 


At least, they;re the differences to me. Personally, I'd say I'm a gamer because I have a nice collection off games, consoles, and I'm not a fanboy arsefag

I consider myself a gamer. I'm a member of a gaming forum. I anticipate release dates. I worked for Xbox Support previously. I have a collection of games of over 50. I read about games and I'd converse with friends a lot about gaming. Am I a hardcore gamer? In a sense, yes. However, it's not my life. I'd be at the very low end of the hardcore gamer scale.


Casual gamers, may enjoy a few titles and complete them. They'd even finish them. However the casual gamer is probably has the biggest demographic so they really vary.
