A “gamer” is someone who plays interactive games, such as video games or tabletop games. The term includes those who do not necessarily consider themselves to be gamers (i.e., casual gamers), as well as those who spend a significant part of their leisure time playing or learning about games. It also describes people who work on methods to gamify technologies relevant to gameplay. There are many gamer communities around the world. Many of these take the form of discussion forums and other virtual communities, as well as college or university social clubs.
