1We Learn a Lot from Video Games

Will he switch in an electric-type to combat my Togekiss? Should I switch into my Excadrill then? Will he anticipate that I predicted his move and switch into a water-type? Powerful prediction skills I'm learning right now... - keycha1n

WHAT I LEARNED FROM GAMING:
Mario:if someone steals your girlfriend/crush, just stomp on the head of everyone in sight.
Ratchet and Clank:If you kill as many innocent people as possible, you get a new bonus.
Kirby:If somebody steals your cake, just eat them. Then eat your cake. - Garythesnail

3Casual Gamers Aren't Lame

We can have just as much fun while being relaxed and not getting stressed while playing.
You can still be considered a good gamer without playing the harder and tough games.

Playing Mario Kart instead of Need for speed mean nothing it's just as fun!
NHL Games are just as fun as FIFA
Party Games aren't terrible to play
Pokemon games are just as fun as playing Metal Gear Solid
Grand Theft Auto & Saints Row are just as fun as Call of Duty or Halo - Curti2594

It bugs me when people say that just because you prefer one kind of game to another, you're not a real gamer. Or because you are a girl, you're automatically not interested in things like Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto etc.
It ticks me off to no extent. We are not lame - just different

I never thought for a moment gamers were lame. Highly strung perhaps... - Britgirl

4Not All Online Gamers Are Jerks or Mean Spirited

Many gamers get criticized because of a select few who are way to serious player or bullies or whiners or cheat or hack. The people who act ridiculous are actually an embarrassment to most people who play Video games. - Curti2594

5Some of Us Actually Do Other Things Besides Gaming

Not all of us stay locked in our rooms for a massive amount of hours only gaming. Like I actually get up and need a break from the system. In other words I'm not closed off when I game! I'll remember to eat or talk to people - Curti2594

6Streamers Are Incredible

The ones who put the time and effort into it are outstanding. It can also be Gruelling on the Gamers themselves!
Streaming Video games can also make you money too!
TwitchTv & Steam are the main 2! - Curti2594

7We Have Emotion & Heart

Self explanatory but we Gamers have feelings and actually care aboot others and ourselves.
People assume we're self centred pricks but they obviously don't take the time to give them a chance. - Curti2594

8We Have Relationships

True friendship or love have been built by loving gaming it helps introduce you to other people who share the same passion. I remember hearing there was actually once a Wedding that took place during an Xbox gaming session.
Also Great Friendships get made when gaming too! - Curti2594

9We Know What Sports Are

Everyone assumes oh cause you like video games that means your basically allergic to athletics.
I play Video games but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't care aboot some sports event happing on T.V.. Plus there are actually Video games based of Sports. - Curti2594

10We Have Strong Opinions

Most Gamers aren't Clueless to the outside world or reality. We usually play video games to avoid reality as much as we can so we don't get caught up in craziness. But you could find a good argument for more topics from Gamers. - Curti2594
