    ...You've actually played all 999 levels of Populous

    ...You've spent more money on your game station and library then you have on your car

    ...You've learned how to play your favorite game music on an instrument

    ...You've literally gotten to the point where you can play a game level with your eyes closed

    anyone got any more?

    But I'm not even close to a true gamer

    you know you're a true gamer when you've used up 85% of your life force blowing into cartridges.

    Ummm... In the middle of a conversation you say 'Loading, please wait.' Then stare into space for 10 seconds?

    Oh sure, you can play the main theme, but what about the others? That takes true devotion to crazy ass concept gaming.

    When you realize that most of Sony's star games are giant piles of crap. Metal gear, Final Fantasy, all those terrible naughty dog games, the generic crap that isn't even worth mentioning (which is bad, since "generic crap" makes up about 99% of sony's star titles), all of them suck. It may also occur when you realize that generally, japanese developers are incapable of introducing a decent narrative these days, especially one that isn't presented with all the skill of a high school film student, and are ALMOST incapable of new ideas, though there are some exceptions.

    God no. I won Populous in a cereal competition. I gave up when that bint got trapped and I couldn't use her powers.

    I don't have a car... so I guess I do spend more money on games

    I have the MGS theme on my phone... does that count?

    I could play MGS2 asleep, let alone with my eyes closed.

    ...You buy a penny arcade shirt that says "Jesus is my guild leader".
    ...You go on a 20 minute rant about how EA is the work of f**king Satan.
    ...You go on a 40 minute rant about how casual gamers are ruining games.
    ...You pay for WoW.
    ...You pay for FFXI.

    You know you're a true gamer when you vote politics based on games.

    ...you boycott EA.

    ...you hate California.

    ...you want to know Warren Spector's opinion before you make your own.

    ...you're not impressed by tech demos.

    ...you know how to build your console.

    ...you've downloaded all the Half-Life patches.

    ...you know which engine your games use.

    ...you know that nothing's ever "confirmed".

    ...you expected Duke Nukem Forever to come out before it was actually a joke.

    ...you buy the SE of all games.

    ...you never buy used.

    ...you quote your heroes quite frequently.

    ...you can guess when the next game in a series will come out before it's announced.

    ...you actually play Morrowind.

    ...you skip meals and sleep to keep playing.
