No. We're all gamers.

The videogame fan base is well known for its snobs, in all camps. I did detect a hint of condescension in the OP too. The reality is, gamers come in all shapes and sizes. Some play only certain genres, but are quite passionate about those genres. Some, myself included, enjoy a variety of genres, but are married to none. I wish I had that kind of passion for a particular genre, so hats off to those CoD fans. However, condescension is uncalled for. There's such a thing as crossing the line, and burning bridges only serves to make one unpopular with everyone, but those who have the same views.

Anyways who wants to play some COD!

 

For real I like alien mode, but hate playing with high levels as they leave me nothing to kill.

 

I'm about level 17 or something and play on PS3.

 

Lets do some "real gaming" gamers!

 

I'm for serious though, add me on PSN.

I hope not. I severely dislike the vast majority of FPS games.

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


COD gamers aren't real gamers. They're mainstream/casual gamers. Nothing they say has merit. BF gamers are becoming just as bad now that BF is becoming the new "flavor of the week"

You know you're not a real gamer when you start off a gaming discussion with "Yea I play games. COD and Battlefield". You're the equivalent of someone who says they're a big movie goer and just lists summer blockbuster superhero movies as points of reference.
