A real gamer will play anything he or she can get their grubby gaming hands on. A real gamer tries all games, and discards no games based on graphics, style, developer, franchise, how "childish" or kiddie it looks, or anything other than gameplay. A real gamer eats, sleeps, and breathes gameplay.
If you like playing games, you like games that play well more than games that play poorly. This is all that matters.
If you like games, you most likely like a fighting game or 2 or 3.
If you like fighters, you like Brawl, and maybe a couple more.
If you only like one fighter, it just has to be Brawl, because it's infinitely better than the rest.
When I was younger, I memorized every move, fatality, and friendship in MK2 and 3, and even some of the babalities, and many of the secret codes. That's what separated me from my friends: I was insane enough to memorize all that bullshit.
With a superior game like Brawl however, it's not memorization of complex button sequences that separates the champs from the chumps. You each have 4 moves that are simple to use, no matter which character you are. Everybody's on the same playing field when it comes to special moves. Now you actually rely on timing, reflexes, and thinking 3 steps ahead.
Now I can barely touch traditional fighting games. They expect me to press 3 or 4 buttons in a row to shoot a fireball ever again? They're fooling themselves.
You see now, we agree on the definition. A real gamer plays many different games. So ur claim, "if u dont like brawl u r not a real gamer" fails.
If you like ur games simple and fun then good for you. But some people find "fun" in different areas, I like 20 button combos for example, perhaps a simple game might be boring after a little while.
Its the same as the claim "if u dont play GTA4 u r not a real gamer" i saw in thread. I dont agree with this either
I like technology when its moving forward..
