With the release of games for both I-Phones and Facebook flooding the market, the sheer amount of people playing games has exploded. By definition, anyone who plays a game could be considered a “gamer” even if flinging birds at pig’s houses is nothing like slaying dragons across the land of Skyrim. To help you figure out if you’re a “True” Gamer — or just a poser — I put together this list of the best ways to know if you are a true gamer. Feel free to comment and add to the list. Also, be aware, some things may not apply to you simply because you’re too young to have experienced it. Don’t fret, I’m sure there are plenty of things you consider part of being a “True” Gamer that I’m too old to even understand.
