I personally relate very strongly with this story. It's only flaw is there is only 15 chapters! Top pick of 2013!

The lighter version of Dice

The premise reminds very strongly of the DICE: The Cube that Changes Everything - another webtoon that was started several month earlier then The Gamer.

The Gamer is most certainly the lighter one of the duo, though while losing the grittiness of the Dice the Gamer has picked up a lot more cliché and predictability.

Time will show if the Gamer will beat the Dice or the vice versa.

This webtoon is definitely one of my top 5 finds of the year 2013. It is also very close to my inner self, and somehow very precious because of that. If you like RPGs, this is a must-read. Heck, even if you hate RPGs, as a manhwa this is worth every minute you spend on it. The author is very skilled, cuz he doesn't bore you and keeps the story moving while not making it seem rushed or anything.

this has alot of potential with a very unique and original idea. based on the name i originality thought this was one of those stories where the mc was a gamer geek which he is but instead of magically transporting into the game or being stuck in one his "real" everyday life is a game. u know that running gag of how real life has the best graphics but shitty gameplay well this would be a case where the real life has just updated its gameplay and features. well story was as u can tell is very promising art is pretty good as well but what really got me hook with this story was the curiosity of how strong the mc would get like he has abilities coming out of his wazoo left and right just from the most trivial of things. make me wonder what other powers he gets n how he gets it. its a pretty good read.

But I always thought that if I had to build my character I'd learn as much skills as possible instead of focusing on a couple specific skills. The more skills the more fun you know? It looks like as of chapter 10 he might be gaining that ability and that gets me really excited biggrin

I quite like this webtoon. It's informative but not boring, there's action but also plot and the MC is funny. Read it if anything game related intrigues you.

Potentially the best ability ever!

The story seems to head towards a generic shounen action, but the MCs ability is a very original one. His ability is the same time super awesome and constant cause of comedy.
I don't expect anything really unique story-wise, but I'm really interested what the writer can get out of this ability later on.

This one might turn in to something big just because it caters to the hidden desire to become a game characters, that a lot of people have.
Curious how the author will play this good hand he has been dealt.

This series has immediately grabbed my attention from the description, and I wondered how the author going to play around with this interesting idea.

From the first chapters that I've read, I can tell you that we are up for something amazing and different, I already love the main character of this series, he feels realistic and smart.

This series already has couple of foreshadowing from the first couple chapters, and the pacing just feels perfect.

The art is good and you will find yourself not caring about it since how good the monologue is.

All in all, if your looking for an original story with Shonen elements, then check The Gamer right now.

I'm very excited to read more of The Gamer, it definitely has the potential to be one the best Manhwa ever.

I love this series so far. It started out a little slow, but most do. It has great potential, and is setting up to become something much bigger than it is now. I look forward to seeing where this story will go.

Has Potential

It seems like it has potential so far. The story seems really unique with the world suddenly turning into a video game. There's not much to look at yet because the story is still in its introduction phase of the manhwa.

I'll give this a 8/10 for now.
