Mobile Gamers Are Gamers | Cracked.com

The biggest gamer you know is not your teenage cousin who has failing grades and intense social anxiety because all they do is play League of Legends. No, it’s someone you think of as barely tech literate, someone you’d never think of as a gamer. Heck, they don’t even think of themselves as a gamer. The most hardcore, dedicated gamer you know is your auntie who is addicted to candy crush.

We, the NPR listening, matcha sipping, critical thinking, snobby gamers of the world need to get off our high horses and come to terms with something the business big wigs have known for a while now: mobile gaming is gaming.

In all the rowdy, idiotic, self-important discourse that comes with being that dirtiest of classifications, “a gamer”, casual gaming is often left out of the conversation. But it’s time to acknowledge our brethren on the go. Having paid thousands of dollars for a honkin’ rig with enough RAM to upload your grandma’s consciousness does not make you more of a gamer than the baby child tapping away at the latest update to Idle Miner Tycoon. The fact that I paid my buddy Darnell extra to pay a scalper extra to get my hands on my precious, beloved Playstation 5 does not make me more of a gamer than my mom who regularly stays up until 4:30 in the morning absolutely CRUSHING games of solitaire.
