A gamer is a person who plays both offline and online video games, either casually or professionally as an e-sports competitor. A gamer can also refer to someone who plays physical games (e.g., board games) as a hobby.

Some gamers play a variety of titles, while others focus their efforts on a specific game. Gamers have many platforms to choose from, including computers and video game consoles, or portable devices, such as tablets and smartphones.
