Gaming in this era surely had evolved and became more than it really should be since its first splash way back in the 80's. It exceeded its main purpose of erasing boredom in our life. Gamers now are not only comprised of nerds and geeks indulging in their digital fantasy, in fact,  everyone of us can be considered as gamers. Gaming now is more than just a venue of entertainment, it has already secured a step into the stairway of our lifestyle.

Most of us certainly know who Mario is and his power-up 'shrooms, some of us bunny-hopped at De_Dust (Read: Counterstrike), stayed up late while playing NBA 2k11 with a buddy while chugging a bottle of beer during breaks, and if you're a 90's kid, you definitely know what "up down, up down, left right, left right, a b, a b, select start" means.  

So, with the legion of gamers flocking all over, we tried to classify them with their game of choice, their special skills and even, yes -  their fashion sense. So hit the gallery below and see what kind of gamer is in you. Select start, brother!
