You really don't know the meaning of the word GAMER.
I play emulated games on my phone: sega genesis, nintendo, super nintendo, playstation, gameboy advance and dreamcast.
I also play games with my rig.
I also play board games.
I also play pen & paper games.

A gamer is someone who enjoys gaming and does it as a hobby or profession. And it doesn't extend only to PC or console gaming.

This is my personal feeling...a gamers hobby is gaming. Really the only reason I think I ever started PC gaming was because my source of people to play pen and paper roleplaying and board games dried up, but now I'd never stop it if I ever able to get a table top group going.

However, if you are only playing games on your phone and/or playing light Flash games on a PC and/or only playing board games...I don't call you a gamer. That describes my wife precisely and she would make no claims of being a gamer. She'd likely be offended by the term.

A person that only plays games on a high-end PC would be called a "PC Gamer" in my opinion...and change the prefix for whatever type of gaming they do. There are also many levels of gaming in side each "catagory"...just like with anything. A person who pays $8 for 10 minutes on a local go-cart track should not be put in the same league of racing as a person who has built their own dirt track Modified class race car. You can't just lump every single person who has ever played one round of angry birds on an old iPhone in with some one running a high-end GPU and overclocked system and plays a minimum of 20 hours week. If you're going to play the game you got to wear the uniform...and buy the equipment.

Perhaps it sounds like I am overthinking this...but really it is a knee jerk reaction. "Oh you only play on a console?" I am talking to a console gamer. "Oh you have 40 different games on your hone?" I am talking to a casual gamer. Oh, you get together each weekend to play Magic: The Gathering? I am talking to a group of virgins biggrin.gif

All percentile numbers are sensational...17% might sound like a lot, but what was that? 2 frames more a second?

I'm sorry to tell you that I'm more than aware of this as I am the OP.
I was just stating an opinion, actually.... a fact.

According to Webster:

gam·er noun \ˈgā-mər\
: a person who plays games and especially video or computer games

: a person who is game; especially : an athlete who tries very hard to win games, competitions, etc.

So yeah, a gamer plays games (any kind, but mostly VIDEO GAMES). Lets just stop the nonsense.

In regards to Mantle I would like to find an article which states a release date for BF4 patch !
