I was thinking about this the other day, and I realized that I only have 1 gamer friend, and that is my younger brother. I know people that play games, but most of them are the kind of people that only play COD or believe something like prototype is way better than something like GTAIV or Skyrim or Metal gear, and are mostly interested in running around destroying stuff rather than beating the game, so I wouldn't consider them gamers.I used to have a bunch friends who did play all kinds of games but since I changed schools I haven't seen them a lot.
I'm an active person, I workout almost every day and for the longest time I've had very little time for gaming. Unintentionally or not, most of the time I end up hanging with people that are like that, more interested in sports, cars, girls, and well, Not games. And when ever I meet a gamer and I try to befriend him, he seems nervous, but mostly when I try to get them to try something else, so we can still hang out even if we're not going to be playing, is when they pull away. I think is because my other friends are also there, and even though I'm talking games with him, my friends conversation subjects can be a little superficial.
Its odd not to have people to talk about how cool the first dragon fight in Skyrim was with anyone else but my brother, but I'm glad hes there. We can talk and play games and even have similar humor.
What about you guys. Do you have gamer friends?
