Are people who like FPS the only "real gamers"?

Most of people i know play FPSs Multiplayer. They barely even touch it MP. And when i come and tell them how beautiful TLoU is, they are like why don't you play COD. You are not a real gamer.
I just don't get why people don't like single player. I believe most beautiful stories can be told through games, they make you feel and care for a character. And even if some do play, they skip the cutscenes. It's really bizzare!
They don't even buy third person games.
And games like COD are garbage, its the same game over and over and over again.
I have seen people who play GTA only for driving **bleep** cars. They don't even play any mission!!!
I had just bought one COD and then i was done with it.

 

Edit: title, for clarity

I like single player games with good story lines better than fps aswell , we probably are the limited number but any real gamer would like all sorts of games . Got bio shock on ps plus for free and must say I wouldn't of gone out and bought it but it has been very good , so I think u should always stray outside ur comfort zone aswell .

If you play any kind of video game then you are considered a gamer. Just because someone plays a different game than what you play doesn't make them no better or more of a gamer than the next person.

A "Real" gamer in my opinion, is one who takes a chance on multiple games. Not being focused around one single game or brand.

No i don't say i don't like FP person games. What pisses me is that people think if u don't play CODs MP, you do nothing.

Nah, Real gamers or I would say a true gamer knows how to play and plans a strategy, either in SP or MP. Most of real games plays single-player game depends on their choice, and when it comes in MP, they don't rant like other noobs claiming they're dominating. I was like that.

Nope. They're in no way the real gamers. I adore single player and I rarely play Multiplayer.

Single player games have a great artistic value in their graphics, storytelling, narration, cutscenes, everything.

 

It's just that a lot of people don't have or just aren't willing to invest time in stories, like those who used to skip all cutscense in PS1 and PS2 games when there wasn't any online gaming, back then. Some just wanna shoot some monsters or enemies and be done with it.

If you like playing video games a lot your a gamer. I don't think it should what type of game you play. Games are games, some are just better than others.

A real gamer is a sentient being that exists on this physical plane, and uses a portion of that existence playing video games.  Period.

 

If you want to debate the level "truth" of any self-proclamation of that designator, you're reading too much into our culture.  Also, our culture of gaming has suffered enough ostracization over the last 35+ years.  Do we really need to segregate ourselves?
