Oh, I see. I just classify those who play games professionally as "pro gamers." To each their own!

It's in the dictionary. I hate it when people use internet slang and whatever but 'to game' is sanctioned English language.

I don't say "I game." I say "I play games."

I don't like the term gamer, or professional gamer, either. Professional? Hardly.

Hahaha! Wtf, thats like someone saying "I internet" XD

Yeah, that's silly. I'm a gamer, or I play games, is different. But some shitty add that says "DO YOU GAME!?", no.

I also agree with you Dissolve. I hate game as a verb, gamer, hardcore, and casual. I don't really know why (or it is too late for me to verbalize it), but I really hate those terms.

I don't use: gaming, gamer, game (verb), hardcore (in reference to players), noob or lol (actually said in conversation) - but I don't mind of other people do... I just can't do it myself.

I'll use the phrase alot, it takes to long to say games, and most people associates games with video games.
If I say, lets go play some games, people assume video games, not board games, anyway..

I'm with you Dissolve. When I hear a non-videogame person say that, I usually cringe.  I cringe when a "gamer" says it too.

Haha, I feel you, dude. I think it's pretty lame, along with a lot of other words people that play games say. It makes me feel kind of ashamed to go to places like Gamestop, so I totally avoid it if possible.

I'm not into it either. And 'gamer' is the dumbest thing to ever be said since the PR people,who don't even play games decided to label us as such, its not something we started, its a label and almost feels insulting to me. People don't go around saying "basketballer" "footballer" "game player" is what I prefer,or someone 'who plays games'
