Casual Gamer = Plays rarely and occassionally simple games such as Bejeweled, Solitare, Candy Crush Saga, etc.
Hardcore Gamer = Extremely buys and plays the heck out of most highly-rated popular games and looks down on even possibly underrated obscure games.
Tabletop Gamer = Not into video games, but board games other than ones from Milton Bradley, Parker Brothers, Hasbro, Ertl, etc.
Import Gamer = Often into foreign games outside their native country, such as importing from Japan and Korea.
Pro Gamer / Cyber Athlete = Often attempts world records, go to tournaments, etc.
Research Gamer = Often "walking encyclopedia" of gaming history, trivia, etc.
I feel like another type should be added
The Indie Gamer: plays games from small developers, but large ones too on occasion. Doesn't play 24/7 but definitely an active gamer. Sees games more as art and an experience than a time filler or competition.
Raging Gamer extremely toxic I surround my self with a group of friends who can handle my toxicity and don't get offended when I talk shit to them and we have a jolly good time I'm the guy who threatens you thru the headset
Maybe like AVGN? Who plays mostly awfully bad / very odd games.
Just normal gamer
Perhaps either same as Casual Gamer or between that and Hardcore Gamer.
@meisterman1985 I'm more like loltyler1 on YT I mostly play mmo's and shooters on mmo's I yell at the DPS and trash talk my team shooters I just yell at the enemy team cuss alot and curse my existence when I play bad which is like always I think I'm a Import Gamer at heart
I am probably more along the lines of an import gamer.
Or a collector/researcher as well.
I'm hardcore into obscure things as well.
I've imported a lot of things over the years, (heck my sega saturn is Japan region... I have the white one) have some rare ports of games, and play everything I research.
currently working on seeing the best way to play Black Onyx... really really old rpg.
Hmmm makes me think of the rarest/most expensive thing I got my hands on....
Not anything super impressive... I do have the Dreamcast Broadband adapter(Japan import)... I do use it to go on private servers for PSO every now and then. I got it for a good deal.
