I don't feel oppressed, so no I'm probably not a true gamer.



Graphics matter, but it's like you said, not make or break. Last game I played was Hotline Miami 2, which looks very retro. Good game, but very frustrating for a spaz like me.

As far as frames per second, I always take 60fps when all things are equal. However, it'n not that big of a deal for me to play in 30 FPS. I'll give you an example. I loved Project Gotham Racing on the Xbox, which ran at 60fps. Played it quite a bit. Eventually, Project Gotham 2 came out, and I immediately noticed that it ran at 30fps. The graphics were improved, so the frame rate was cut. Was let down at first, but eventually I ended up liking Project Gotham 2 more than the first game because it was simply the better overall experience.

Then Project Gotham 3 came out on the 360, and was easily the best looking in the series AND ran at 60fps. But I didn't like it as much as Project Gotham 2 at 30fps. Won't get into why and give a full review, but yeah, there you go.

As far as Nintendo goes, I've many of their systems, but it's been a while. Last portable I had was a DS and a DS Lite upgrade, and the last home console I owned from them was the Gamecube.

I agree 100% and yes, I am a true gamer. Good video.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Didn’t watch the video but I have a feeling that I am not a true gamer by whatever your definition is.

mmn, I don't really see wanting better performance, let alone caring about it, is solely related to "millennials". I've been wanting better performance for years, nhence why I upgrade my hw, or buy a system with better performance. I like pretty visuals, as much as I love artistic stylish choices, but I also highly value performance, and I have my own set of standards that I live by.

There is no such thing as a "true gamer", because that lends itself highly to the "true scostman" fallacy. There is no written book on how to be a "true" gamer, because that itself is entirely subjective.

I'm just a gamer who loves artistic visuals and pretty graphical details, but also loves nice mechanics and performance gains. Just because you don't care for some of them, does not make them any less important.

Also, I find it a bit off, that someone can be labeled a true gamer, for owning Nintendo products, as if all og gaming is Nintendo only. That's opinion based, not fact.

"True Gamers don't care about Frames Per Second." ... "I can't really tell the difference (between 30/60fps)"

*closes video*

I get your points, but I don't agree that this makes someone a "true gamer". In fact the majority of these points apply to people who barely play games at all.

Those that very rarely play games don't care about graphics, nor do they care or even notice FPS.

But I like your point about playing games from more than one system/company. I'd just hesitate to label people as "not true gamers". Don't know what other term you could use though.

apparently I'm a true gamer because I own a Gamecube, which I almost exclusively used to play Soul Calibur 2

but then again I'm not a true gamer as graphics and smooth framerates are important to me and because I'm a millennial - that said I did love/play Demon's Souls/Dark Souls on PS3 and those games had severe issues in that department and I do play quite a lot of 8bit/16bit style games



I have owned 15 systems in my life, I consider myself a true gamer. And I couldn't care less about graphics. Katamari is still one of my favorite games.

Hmm. Maybe I'm looking back with rose colored glasses, but I never found the frame rate problems in Demon's Souls to be severe. I do remember it happening, but nothing persistent.

At a glance, it looks like breaking boxes was an issue. :)
