"Anyone who can complete a game, none of this "social" crap" - Is the option i selected!

Of course there might be varying levels: casual, serious, hardcore - or something along those lines. Whether you get games casually (once in a blue moon, or only get them every birthday or christmas), buy them as often as a daily newspaper, count down to every release like it's THE main event. You're a gamer if you play them.

I was tempted to chose the last option just so to have everyone wonder who the dumbass was. But I went with "anyone who can complete a game..."
I may be a geek, but it's one of my endearing qualities.

I'm that third person who picked that option :)

If you have the patience & get drawn into a game to finish it .... then in my opinion you're a gamer. All ages, male or female.

good idea for a poll by the way Mercury 8-)

Was tempted to select "Nerdy people who obsess about WOW" (but was going to substitute WOW for "any MMO") but decided that the "Anyone who can complete a game..." option was the best fit! :D
