What is a ‘Facegamer’? Originally, I found the word on the Urban Dictionary, which defines it as “A particularly annoying kind of Facebook denizen who, knowingly or not, posts their idiotic game scores, ad nauseam, so that you have to scroll down reams of posts to see anything other than chickens#$t in Farmville, or the like, even though these are supposed to be the people you’re interested in hearing from.”
I read that and thought to myself – “That’s ME!” I’d like to think that nowadays, a Facegamer is anyone who REALLY LIKES their Facebook games.
I made this site to share with my fellow Facegamers – all the things here are things that I’m interested in, and that I like to use personally.
If you find out something interesting before I do, please share it with me and I’ll post it on this site with a credit to you if you want. You can also choose to be anonymous. Just let me know.
About the Writer:
The Facegamer is Jacqueline Simon, who is a life-long video game a holic. Ever since her dad let her play his (now-vintage) Bally home entertainment system, that’s all she’s ever wanted to do. Eight-Bit Nintendo games are still a warm, loving memory of youth. And although she’s contracted the fatal disease known as Adulthood, she continues to love and admire video games (and their creators) with childlike wonder. You can reach Jacqueline by email at jacqueline ((at)) thefacegamer.com, or use the contact form at the bottom of the page.
