Definition - What does Gamer mean?

A gamer is a hobbyist or individual that enjoys playing various types of digital or online games. Generally, a gamer refers to any kind of gaming enthusiast, but when used in IT, the term refers to those that utilize a full range of electronic or digital games.

Techopedia explains Gamer

Digital gaming is a diverse environment that can take a variety of forms - from basic games adapted from PC versions to play on smartphones or other mobile devices, to more elaborate role-playing or competitive games that work through IP networks. Most discussions between gamers focus on those that engage in multi-user "worlds" enabled by global broadband connections. However, in some cases, gaming refers to broader trends in mobile device gaming, where individual apps are popular with larger user groups.

When reviewing gamers as a community, analysts often try to understand the predominant trends of a gaming group; how new releases affect a gaming community and what drives interest in a particular form of gaming. At the same time, individuals recognize themselves and others as gamers based on factors like game playing habits, online avatar identification and game environment experience.
