Family members show you photos of their holiday; you show them demos of your clanmatch.

The missing ceiling tile in the corner of your office may harbour a nest of headcrabs.

A news report is titled 'Quake Warning' and your first concern is that your favorite server has gone down.

you know ur a gamer when you are im'ing ur WoW buddy with the funist ones on the list. When you know more people online then you do in the whole country. when ur litening to techno music while chating about this thread to your WoW buddy and writing this post. When you memorize every single name in the credits for Final Fantasy 7 and have built a shrine for each person( note i don't actually do this but i don't doubt someone does). When you start ranting about having to get up from your game becouse you need to make ramen, even though you have all the food you need stored in you desk.
