An old school gamer to me is someone who truly appreciates classic games. I get so sick of hearing people say (not anyone here but generally speaking) " that game is so old" or " the graphics suck" etc about classic games from the 8 bit days and such. Quite a few realize that some of the great games that are out today are a result from a lot of the classics from way back. Metroid, zelda, Mario, Sonic, Castlevania, Mega Man, Street Fighter( the list goes on and on). Yes as we all know, games these days are better in graphics and processing power but a lot of games today lack what a lot of games had back then.... FUN!!!! I am proud to say that i still play nintendo games just for that very reason. Games like Zelda for the nes are timeless, it still holds up very well to this day Double Dragon is still the best beat em up to date which is one of my favourite of all time.. A true gamer knows great games regardless of their age or time.
what makes an old school gamer?

what are old school games? pac man? asteroids? Street fighter 2?
i had a c64 computer so does that mean i am old school?
hang on, is it good to be considered old school,
"yes, i am an old school gamer. i have wasted all these years playing games"
I think thats true in some ways or something like that,
In my opinion,
An old school gamer is someone who has played games since the beginning. I think because of the diversity of many systems, we can define many old school gamers.
If we got gamers from the atari age like myself, then we're really old school. But someone from the psx era can be seen as old school itself. They really like old games and try to find them.
practically enjoys every game and tries to find the enjoyment in it. They usually give games a chance and don't turn it off after playing it for 3 minutes just to give some hope for the game for making it good.
The Old school and True gamer definitions are varied depending on your opinion
