A comic about grinding   
Rating: 6.5 / 10.0
by MisteryoLH
July 24th, 2014, 12:51pm
After reading 47 chapters, I see that this comic is stalled. Seems like the author just loves his MMOs, particularly the grinding part. The little bit of plot that we thought we had was an illusion, and seems like nothing will get out of it. Be prepared to face the MC fighting lots and lots of chapters worth of monsters and commenting how cool it is to be living the game while he levels up.

There is a serious lack of writing skills by the author. Nothing ever happens.

The Gamer, a review after reading 44 chapters.

Being a huge fan of both video games and mangas, a combination of these two would be just up my alley, so for that reason I had high hopes for The Gamer. In the 20 or something chapters, it had me captivated. It had a fast pace, the characters are somewhat enjoyable and the MC grows stronger at a steady pace, which I find satisfying to watch. But the story has now been extremly slow, with very few twists and turns, which the author could easily put write into the story. There are also a lot of plotholes, but I'm willing to skip that part, as long as it starts rolling along quicker. I hope the author fixes this ASAP, so I'm going to hold off on my judgement till 'bout chapter 50.

Pretty Good.... Need to catch up on the chapters.

Being a casual gamer myself, this webtoon is like my ultimate fantasy--and the author has done a good job of depicting everything thus far.

It's still a pretty new series and the plot has not advanced very far, but I hope it will endure the test of time! Go, the Gamer!

p.s. lately all my favorites seem to be Korean webtoons... (i.e., Tower of God, Cheese in the Trap, Noblesse, Fairytale of theDemon Lord, Wake up Deadman, ...)

A painfully slow story that feels like a grind and mediocre artwork combine to make The Gamer an easy series to drop. Some particular things I hated about the series included...
  • The author's need to explain every detail regarding the main character's gamer ability. The adage, "Show it, don't tell it" seems the best way to describe this failure in storytelling. 40 chapters in and the characters' still can't stop repeating, "this must be because of your Gamer ability.
  • The characters themselves are !@#$ing boring. The main character is repetitive, his best friend lacks personality, and the black magician's daughter is forgettable outside of her curse. Everyone else might as well not exist for how little the series cares about them.
  • The strange bits that don't belong.
    Spoiler (mouse over to view)
    The Ogre's Tigerskin panties being the most recent case. It's a stupid gag in a series that doesn't need it.

Literally, its one of the best webcomics i have read and since im a gamer myself i enjoy it x10 compared to a no gamer.
Even tough that there are a few mistakes from the illustrator in this webcomic regarding some skills of the protagonist, they are passable. An example to this would be the soul recovery that without soul stone should say only hp recovery. this was a mistake that was mentioned in later chapters.

I think this webtoon is really refreshing. I think that maybe people are expecting to much from something that only has 30 some chapters so far. After reading everything that has complex and long and dragging plots that go on forever, The Gamer is light and refreshing. It is also sort of funny when you catch the little jokes and references thrown out there.

Something that I like about this that isn't like others I have read is that instead of the main character being transported into a game or living in a reality where everything is a game, the The Gamer has it where only the main character sees reality as a game and no one else. That's pretty unique and different to me so I don't know why people are complaining so much.

But all in all I think it is pretty good.

Fun, Lighthearted Read

Tbh, this is a story with a little originality, but I don't think it is all that original. Though what really matters in my opinion is the story execution since finding a completely original story is difficult nowadays. So far, all I can say is that it's a fairly lighthearted read with some funny and enjoyable parts. If, you are a lover of lover of RPGs, then this webtoon is for you, or even if you haven't ever played a RPG in your life, you may still enjoy learning about the different principles of RPGs. There's also some references to Tower of God as well which I personally liked. One thing that the webtoon is lacking, is a good storyline, or atleast a sense of where the story is going and it's mainly only been focused our main character living his daily life with a special ability. You won't be finding a incredibly deep story from The Gamer but it's still a fun series so far.

Fun but Nothing Special   
Rating: N/A

People giving this a high rating are probably not used to the multitude of Korean RPG-based novels that fill word count quota with stat stats and more stats and how awesome the hero is compared to the rest of the world, and how hardworking and dedicated he is. The only difference is the medium and the setting being the real world. I am not dropping this yet, since it is still too early and so far it has been entertaining despite the nagging sensation of having read the same thing elsewhere.

Really fun but people are complaining

I really like The Gamer, its an entertaining read and I look forward to it every week or so, but like with SAO there's a fence between people absolute fanboys and those that say its boring and unoriginal. I mostly have a problem with people complaining about a series being similar to another and how this somehow makes it bad.

So first, the story is about a gamer who gets powers like from a game, except not magic but the actual console (and some magic too) along with skills and an (awesome) inventory window. For me this is a first but there may be others who have seen similar works, big deal, nowadays its becoming hard to create a truly innovative story that deviates off from typical genres or cliches, that doesn't make it any less enjoyable.

People say its slow paced, maybe some people want action all the time but I like how this isn't really building up anything special (there may be some but I'm just enjoying it). Its just the every day life of an in game gamer, there'll probably be something happening later but for now I'm enjoying this kind of atmosphere.
