Alex being the only gamer anyone knows seems statistically odd.

Anyway, it does seem like Cristophe is actually turned on by thinking of Alex. Though if he wasn't at full mast before, i wonder how Nadine was able to enjoy the love making.

While I like the plot moving (and sorta confirmation that Cristophe is excited when it comes to the thought of Alex present during his sex), somehow the dialogue doesn't feel right...
Eh, never mind.

Speaking of boning the wrong school, how long have Eloise and Nadine been there?

My guess is he went from excited to super excited :p

When one thinks gamer, they think really into games, not just "plays Madden" People don't consider people who play games on their phone as a gamer either. We also don't know how big his school is, though, one would think Marie would be mentioned as well, not just Alex.

Except that's not true, people that play sports games are considered gamers, especially since you usually need a console to play.

There are people that are elitist about it, but in general people that play sports games are considered gamers. Especially since a lot of them now have a "story mode", like NBA2K's My career mode.

Uh, not really. Sports games (especially series titles like Madden) grind out titles so frequently and with so little true effort and innovation that, while technically games by definition, they're not played by actual gamers. Or, at least, actual gamers don't just play sports games (they might dabble now and then). Call of Duty is heading in that direction as well, but hasn't quite gotten there yet. I mean, call it elitism if you must, but if all you ever play is Madden and CoD, then your experience with games is so limited that you really don't know the broad scope games can have.

There's also the casual/hardcore division to consider. If sports games ever got into that scale, they'd be at the far bottom end of Casual, with stuff like X-Com and Dark Souls way up at Hardcore. Even if they don't know it yet, Nadine and Eloise really want someone at least in the middle of the scale.

I've known people who played just sports game and they never considered themselves a gamer.

Same with those who played every facebook/phone app game.

In fact, they were usually quite ready to say they weren't gamers. I know people who play phone app games more than I play a MMO and they're all "I'm not a gamer. They're like geeks and losers." :p

Also heard that from someone who just played Second Life, which seemed odd :p

There's a mentality to being a gamer. Just playing sports games, generally isn't it. Alex and Marie...they're gamers. :)

I still hear "Computers are dumb" from people who can't live without their phones :p

That sounds like elitism and gatekeeping, especially since i'very seen and heard the opposite.

Cool, because that's what it is. Because no offense, who are you to judge?

It's like saying you're not real fan if you're new to a film series or just got into a more recent game in a franchise.

Anyone that plays a game is a gamer. Even if it is just fighters, platformers, shooters, RPGs.

You also forget people buy games that fit their free time. Like sometimes ones job will only allow you brief breaks where you'll only get enough time for a quick online session and obviously not something as time consuming like a Legend of Zelda game or any JRPG.

But most importantly, it seems rather dickish to judge people on what they enjoy playing.

I had kind of figured the last panel was after Taps played.

And the same applies to you. Who are you to include everybody who's ever touched a gamepad in their life? Just owning a console doesn't count.

Being a gamer is a mindset, not an action. Fighters, platformers, shooters, RPGs, those all apply. I mentioned very specific series, ones that are mass-manufactured to release multiple times a year, following a set formula of production, with little to no difference between each release. Would you say someone is a pizza aficionado if the only kind they ever eat is store-brand frozen pizza? Mass produced, no variation, standardized recipes. How about a 'music lover' that only listens to the latest pop ear-worm? You're not a gamer unless you actually try to understand what's behind the action, even only a little. And if you dig into most sports games, there's nothing there. Picking plays completely at random is as valid as any other plan. Why bother?
You also fail to forget people buy games to fit their free time. Like sometimes ones job will only allow you brief breaks where you'll only get enough time for a quick online session and obviously not something as time consuming like a Legend of Zelda game or any JRPG.
There are tons of games out there that only take 5 minutes per play session. Hell, Minesweeper counts, old as it is. Go look around in your store of preference, you can find quick games anywhere if you want to.

Being a gamer is a mindset, not an action.
Debatable, there's a reason the term "casual gamer" exists.

There's a lot shades of gamers, there's the casual crowd, the AAA-consumer crowd, the hardcore crowd, the competitive crowd, etc.

Any of those last 3 would, if not branded as a "gamer", at least be referred to as someone that plays games, so I still think it's a bit contrived that our Lady of school-banging found no one that knew any gamer or gamed himself a bit until now.


Anyway, Eisu has a knack for producing some of the hottest panels of the Pixie Trix lineup. :-bd

I'd think that the big point about the "definition of a gamer" argument is whether those people call themselves gamers. Or does that etiquette only apply to sexual identities?

Anyway, it seems that Christophe hasn't been able to entirely resist the lure of meaningless sex with eager hot girls yet. Hope that he doesn't start suffering self-disgust over it... And ah, the virtues of long hair when keeping a comic from the horrors of nipple depiction.

Well, we knew that Christophe had found that he had a bit of a confusing unexpected thing about Alex. (The guy's adolescent-jock instincts are evidently still strong enough that he can't just say "Oh heck, seems I'm a bit bi" and roll with it - though I guess that knowing Alex as a straight platonic friend would make it a bit awkward anyway.)

I assumed that he was just going into his refractory period and, umm, softening up slightly, post-orgasm, when the thought of Alex caused a resurgence.
