I don't consider someone who occasionally plays solitaire on their phone, or Farmville on Facebook, to be a gamer.
Definition gamer:
A gamer is someone who play games.

Definition game:
A game is structured playing, usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool. Key components of games are goals, rules, challenge, and interaction. Games generally involve mental or physical stimulation, and often both.

So everyone who plays card games, PC-games, board games, phone-games … is a gamer.
