I love the fact that grrl gamer is the most hated-upon in the bracket there because of her place on the respective axises (Skill and Faggotry). Surely there's more despicable groups on there.
I suppose, if any, I have parts Rec Gamer and WoWfag in me. I don't have as much time play as I used to, and do play WoW fairly regularly. Not to the exclusion of my 360, but it certainly cuts down on my gaming. And I'd like to think I'm more versed in video gaming in general than either category, and certainly was a console generation or two ago. Back on maybe the N64 I'd call myself a Pro Gamer. Pretty good without taking it seriously, and just good enough to challenge those who took certain games much more seriously. Anymore, not so much though.
Going by that list - 'PRO GAMER' has me down to a tee.
27, have all consoles and a nice PC, Plays everything (for example, i started a new Mass effect playthrough especially for the release of ME2, Just clocked Bayonetta and starting in a harder difficulty, and vigourously play MW2 min 4 hours a day.) And i hate Sports games (Madden/fifa/pro'evo.
Although...i do shout "BOOM" when i land a cracker of shot when i snipe. So maybe 80% 'Pro Gamer' and 20% 'Ass Clown' hybrid.

I think I suit the elitist gamer category best. I'm pretty bitter and easily angered when it comes to gaming. Usually play and behave like an ******* in any sort of competitive play. If I ever "hold" back in a pro-gamer esque manner, it's just so I can humiliate my opponent even more in the next fight. Slightly older games hold a certain appeal to me, not retro-games but many from the late 90s. Own most consoles and play active only the PC. Only thing that's a bit off is that I play my Computer and console equally.
I own all three concoles, play all three, have two gaming PCs, play on both, I''m 26, I often let other people win to be cool, I ONLY play for fun, and I've been gaming since I was 3 and a half. (23 years of gaming...hmm...that's a lot.)
Pro gamer describes me best. I don't have time to play as much as I want, I'm better than most frequent gamers, but not enough to be an elitist. I don't develop any games, and I never steal games.
Everynow and then, I assclown people...and the example they gave of knifing someone right before they finally disarm, is exactly something I'd do. (Quickly followed by loud yelping from me, as follows: "Woooopty woopty woopty SHOOOOOOOP!"
Rec Gamer, I guess. I play a fair amount (not as much now as I used to though), I play a bunch of different things, and I do like casual games, though not Halo or TF2 (I quite dislike those), but more puzzle games and the like (Puzzle Quest rocks).
Pro Gamer is a decent fit, but I don't really play games with other people (and lack the hand-eye coordination to really be very skilled at most games), and I don't pirate stuff
I'm definately a cross between a rec gamer and a retro gamer. I'm a casual player who'll play almost anything as long as I'm having fun. I don't play Halo or any FPS games, but mainly racing, puzzle, RPG, fighting, strategy, and action/adventure games.
Also, I still have most of my systems and games from the 1990s.
