The term "Gamer" is widely used, but there doesn't seem to be a real consensus of what it means. Is it just players of computer or role-playing games? What about mobile gaming like Clash of Clans and Candy Crush - does that make you a gamer? The word "gamer" can be helpful - allowing individuals self-identify as part of a social group. But people can get pretty nasty over this issue of who is and who isn't a gamer, and the debate over the term pushes the community in an exclusionary direction. So what exactly is a "GAMER?" Is it Hardcore players, casual players, mobile or console players, just people who like "Games" in general? Watch the episode to find out!
