Steam High Five Shows Us Variety of Gaming Interests

Variety is the Spice of GAMES.

Since the term “gamer” was first used to refer to people who play video games, that particular niche has expanded exponentially to include such a wide array of people that the designation holds about as much significance as referring to someone as a movie-goer (gamer rolls off the tongue much better than that, though, doesn’t it?). While those of us that would withhold the title from all but the elite, this may be a point of frustration. But who can argue with the vast variety of games that have come about to satisfy such diverse interests? Who wants to fit into a rank-and-file designation anyway? Here is today’s small variety:
