If you’re the kind of person who likes to play video games, you might be a gamer. Even though this sounds obvious, a lot of people have become gamers without knowing it! Do any of these signs sound familiar to you?
You reach for snacks while gaming
You reach for snacks while gaming. You are not a gamer if you don’t need to eat while playing online games. If there were no food involved in the game, it would not be fun at all.
You need to eat healthy snacks, not just junk food. If you are going to spend hours playing, it is important that your body has enough energy to keep going throughout the day and night and so on until dawn breaks again (and sometimes even longer).
You need a lot of snacks with you at all times just in case someone else needs one too!
You can’t survive without your laptop
You can’t live without your laptop. It’s not just a cliche—it’s true. If you have an important task that needs to be completed, like writing a paper or doing some research for work, your laptop is there for you. Your laptop has saved your life before and will continue to do so in the future. You love it more than any human being on Earth.
For all of these reasons, I think most geeks would agree: we are gamers at heart!
You don’t know how to use a TV remote
If you are a gamer, chances are you don’t know how to use a TV remote. You are not comfortable with the TV remote. You don’t know how to change the channel or turn off the TV or even turn on the TV. You do have one in your house but it’s just another item of décor that no one uses and doesn’t serve any real purpose in their lives (except maybe as a paperweight).
You spend half of your day with headphones on
You spend half of your day with headphones on.
If you live a gamer’s life, then the first thing that comes to mind in the morning is “what should I listen to?”. Music, podcasts and audiobooks are some of the most common forms of entertainment but if you are into gaming then there is no better choice than watching videos or movies. And if your goal is to spend as much time as possible behind a computer screen then it does not matter what else is happening around you: just put on your headphones and get lost in your favorite game.
You watch the World Championships (for Dota 2, LoL or any other game) like it’s the World Cup Soccer finals
You’re a gamer if you really care about your favorite game, and you watch the World Championships (for Dota 2, LoL or any other game) like it’s the World Cup Soccer finals. You can enjoy the game in a number of ways:
- Live online
- On TV
- In person at stadiums around the world
- On big screens in public places such as bars or theaters (or just on your big screen at home)
- On small screens on mobile phones when you’re not able to get out much due to work commitments/family responsibilities/the economic situation
You always need the fastest Internet
If you’re a gamer, there’s a good chance that your internet speed is higher than average. It needs to be because gaming is all about fast responses and quick action—and no one likes a lagging game.

Your smartphone has many games installed – but you rarely play them.
Do you have many games installed on your smartphone? Have you ever played them? If your answer to both questions is “no,” then it’s possible that you are what we call a gamer.
The term “gamer” can be confusing because it has different meanings. Some people believe that only those who play computer games like World of Warcraft or Call of Duty can be called gamers; but others say anyone who plays any game at all is a gamer—even if they only play Candy Crush Saga once in a while when they’re bored on the train. Whatever definition of “gamer” makes sense to you, it’s clear that some people spend much more time in front of their computers than others do.
So why do some people collect hundreds or thousands of games on their phones but never use them? Why do others spend hours playing Clash Royale or Candy Crush Saga when they could be doing something productive instead? In this blog post, I’ll discuss six reasons why some people decide not to play the games they download onto their smartphones:
Your life is similar to a gamer’s life, but maybe you should leave that laptop and go outside for a fresh breath of air.
If you find yourself spending more time on your computer than you do with people, then it’s likely that your life is similar to a gamer’s life. And I’m not just talking about playing games.
The truth is, many gamers are introverts who prefer to stay indoors and play video games all day. They don’t really like going outside because they’re afraid of being judged by others or not fitting in with them. This makes sense because most people who are social butterflies tend to be more open-minded. As such, they will judge a person based on what he/she does and says rather than how he/she looks like or dresses up when going out for a walk in public places (e.g., parks).
If this describes someone close to us—whether it’s ourselves or someone else—then there are things we can do about it as well as ways we can help them get out from behind their computers once in awhile so that they can enjoy the world around them again!
So, what is your answer? If yes, then you are like me or one of my friends: a gamer. Your life is similar to a gamer’s life, but maybe you should leave that laptop and go outside for a fresh breath of air. Just for a minute or two!
