After watching the [URL=http://g4tv.com/videos/45233/ECA-PAX-East-Panel-2010-With-Hal-Halpin/]PAX East panel discussion with Hal Halpin and Adam Sessler[/URL] from Xplay (G4TV) this morning, I was left thinking about some of the topics that were discussed. One of the topics Hal and Adam touched on was the word 'gamer' and the connotations that can be made from affiliating or even identifying with this demographic or social group. Adam made some very good points about the use of the word 'gamer' when he described how gamers are almost "doing themselves a disservice" by deliberately separating themselves from the vast majority of people who are now exposed to some form of entertainment that comes under the umbrella of a game or video game.

If I had to define what type of gamer I was by looking at my gaming habits including the amount of time I spend playing games, I'd probably be considered a 'hardcore' gamer. But compared to some of my friends who play games competitively, I'm not really that hardcore. However, if you compare my gaming habits to say someone who plays Farmville on Facebook every couple days, I'm definitely not a 'casual' or 'social' gamer either. We've come to understand and identify with so many different definitions of what being a 'gamer' is because there are so many variables to consider. There doesn't seem to be one true definition that everyone agrees with.
