I personally don't have a big number of them. Just a few that I could call up to play a game with. 
 
What about you guys/gals/robots?

Only 1, but he sucks at games and never wants to try anything new, and generally makes me angry when it comes to games. It took me forever to convince him to play Mass Effect, I let him borrow it and he didn't play it for months.

like 2, but whenever we hang around with the purpose of playing video games we always get distracted. I don't know who any of the dudes on my friend's list are though.

I play video games almost every friday after school with 3 of my friends.It's a great way to relax and have fun, after an annoying week of school.

A few friends for sporadic games but we talk more about games than play them together. It's usually my brother that I play the most with. We have similar sense of humor and skill so it's never a dull moment. Oh, and I'll join some coworkers in some Call of Duty action every now and again.

Almost all my friends are gamers. Some are more hardcore than others, but we all love games.

That made me laugh really hard for some reason, but then again it's almost 3 A.M. and everything is funny to me at this time.
 
I have 2 gamer friends. One i met my freshman year in college. The other I met my sophmore year in college and it's creepy how much we have in common, but yet still find ways to have the dumbest arguments you've ever heard.
 
 I’m also part of a PS3 clan. Bunch of cool people there. Thankfully no ‘meat heads’ or any other stereotypical jackasses you’d meet online. Normally I’m not one to join ‘clans’ because from my experience, they tend to focus on one particular game or genre, but I joined this one because they play a bit of everything. From SSF4 to GT5. Black Ops to Red Dead. Most of the time, it’s hard to not find someone to play with.

Every fucking person I know loves to play video games. It kinda blows because everyone would rather play at get-togethers rather than online, so when I'm online and their online and I send them a request to play a game they usually go "Just come over, we got food/beer/whatever" even though they know I have to go to class/work earlier in the morning than they do. But it's cool.

I know of no REAL gamers. The closest I've come is to a guy who likes to play RPG's like Fallout or Fable and a guy who likes to play Starcraft and some RPG's. Everyone else plays Call of Duty and NBA 2K something.

I'm in college, so they most have like a console.
 
But as for people who play as much as me? And aren't just playing one game or just CoD. Like maybe 6.

I have about 3 or 4 friends that play more than just COD or Fifa. Almost every guy will play fifa in university in england.

No, and it kind of sucks.  Well, I sort of do.  All of my guy friends play sports games and FPS, but that's about the extent.  One used to love platformers too, but only Nintendo makes those now. 
 
Aside from that, the guys and girls in my group all play Rock Band, You Don't Know Jack, Mario Party, but nothing deeper than that. 
 
Out of my good friends, I'm the only one who plays anything like Mass Effect or Metal Gear Solid or Dead Rising. 
 
It's nice being popular and socially acceptable and all, but I'd like it if any of my good friends were as "hardcore" about gaming as I was.  I've got some distant friends or associates that are, but no one in my group.

I wouldn't say I have too many or too little; I have the right amount. A good mix of people to talk gaming politics with, but at the same time not an overwhelming amount that I feel suffocated.

Many of them with ranging levels of dedication. Alot of my really good friends from back in early highschool were just like me when it came to games (obsessively crazy). Now other friends I have now play current games plenty, but have no prior history to video games before the end of the life cycle of ps2.

Zero! Think I've only ever had about 1 friend who liked games a lot, and a few acquaintances in middle school, and the 1 friend kind of grew out of it when the ladies came into the picture. Never really thought too hard about why my friends weren't gamers. Possibly because I've never met anyone who played games who also was fun to hang out with. It's way more fun to use friends for running around almost killing yourselves.

Not counting that almost all college/university guys will sit down for some CoD... I have 4 or 5 gamer friends (and 2 are girls, yay). I am still probably the most hardcore one by far, though it's been some time since I've been able to really sit down with a game due to real life commitments, so maybe not anymore.

Yeah, all of my friends play video games, with a few that actually show a great depth of knowledge about them. We also have the same likes and dislikes, opinions, etc.

I went up through high school with no gamer friends. Then I had a ton...then college and I had way fewer, and now I have a pretty good amount. I guess I'm trying to say it'll equal out.

Depends, there is a guy on my Steam friends list that I'm very close with and is the closest thing to a friend I have ever had, but if you mean people I know and interact with in person then none.

I'd say it's about split down the middle, half gamer friends and half non-gamers..  But I never really get a chance to play with any of my gamer friends very often, with some of us going to different colleges (or not going to college at all) and jobs and all that, it's kind of hard to get together and play games.

Practically everyone I know plays games of some sort but there are only one or two I'd call gamers.  I have a few acquaintances, people I know through other people, who game regularly but I wouldn't call them friends.  I fell out of contact with someone I would have called a gamer friend because we lived on other ends of the country.  I have a brother who games (mostly shooters) and that's about it.  All my other friends are like me, grown-ups who (unlike me) do not "game".  Being a game enthusiast in my age group is unusual and it carries a stigma.

Then there's the family too, mom and dad both play games a lot.

None. I'm 32, so that puts me in a demographic where there is a lot less gamers.

Not to the extent that I am no. Well, just one really. Most of my mates will quite happily sit down to play CoD or FIFA though.

One of my friends is a hardcore gamer like myself but only plays pc games while my main gaming platform is the ps3. The rest don't really play videogames but when we gather at my house we spend hours playing Zombies in COD or Borderlands co-op.

I used to have nothing but gamer friends, more or less. That's changed a lot in more recent years, but I still have a couple buddies that I can game with if I choose.
