Gamedar: The ability to spot gamers


November 7, 2007.

On that day the word “gamedar” was born. Much like “radar,” or its second cousin once removed “gaydar,” “gamedar” refers to someone’s ability to spot a gamer. One need not be a gamer to possess gamedar, like how one need not be a football player to know that this year’s Patriots are The Truth.

Were you blessed with gamedar (or any other “-dar,” like “polishdar” or “republicandar”)? What makes it possible to spot other gamers, aside from the Mario hats and Night Elf tattoo and how can I learn this skill?
