Types of Computer Gamers and Online Gamers

Everyone knows at least one gamer, your best friend, your recluse neighbour, the man down the road in the big house, your mother, your grandmother. But do you know what type of gamer they are?

This article will attempt to outline the various types of gamer so next time you see them, you can correctly identify the type of gamer they are.

Casual Gamer

A casual gamer is a player whose interest in gaming is limited, they tend to lean towards easier styles of play and don't spend hours at a time on specific game. Casual gamers are predominately females and enjoy interactive games such as those where you may progress a character through a virtual world, or where you directly control the character via motion sensors.

Hardcore Gamers

Hardcore gamers spend many hours perfecting their style of play on each game, they tend to play games that require much more user involvement and take much longer to complete in-game goals such as achievements and quests. Many hardcore gamers have a competitive mindset when it comes to playing online, each trying to better their opponents and gain positions in online leagues and competitions.

Pro Gamers

Professional gamers play video games for money, some even play professionally for a living, earning large sums of cash for winning competitions. Pro gamers are the best of the hardcore gamers, usually specialising in a certain game or franchise of games. Some pro gamers can earn over $150,000 a year from competitions and endorsement by electronics and gaming companies. Pro gaming is big business is South Korea and Japan where competitions are stream to hundreds of thousands of people.

Newbie / Noob

Noob is a slang term for someone new to gaming, a certain game or someone who is a much worse or amateur player. It is often used as an insult in game "look at that noob, he doesn't know what he is doing!"

Retro Gamer

Retro gaming is coming back in a big way. People are remembering the original and addictive games they played as a child/teenager and want to relive some of those moments. Many old console emulators are available online these days so the retro gamer can download their favourite old-school games and play on their new modern pc systems. Along with emulators lots of people are actually digging out their old consoles from the attic and getting right back to how games used to be played.



This list is exhaustive and there are many subsets of each type of gamer, but hopefully now you'll be able to easier identify the gamer type in each of your friends.

I like to play every type of game online. But enjoy Flash Games and Free Action games.
