Join Kevin Butler In Celebrating "Gaming Is..." Day on Twitter

Sony marketing frontman Kevin Butler has declared today "National #gamingis Day" on Twitter, and he wants you to join him.

At Sony's E3 2010 press conference, actor Jerry Lambert - better known to gamers as Sony's "Kevin Butler" character - stole the stage (and the show) to give an impassioned speech on what gaming really was. Gaming was "staying up until 3am for a trophy that isn't real ... but IS!" Gaming was "girls who know the way to a guy's heart is through a melee attack."

Yes, it was a pre-written speech by a clever marketer delivered by an actor, but that didn't mean it didn't strike a chord with gamers everywhere. We all love games, don't we? Of course we do.

Now, it's well known that we here at The Escapist are rather fond of the Kevin Butler campaign, so when the Kevin Butler Twitter account declared today "National #gamingis Day" and encouraged people in the Twitter-verse to start tweeting what gaming was to them, we thought we'd hop on board.

If you have a Twitter account, why not chime in? Remember to include the #gamingis hashtag, and throw your two cents into the pool: What is gaming to you?

I'll start: Gaming is breaking your mouse-clicking finger and learning to use another finger to play TF2 and Diablo.

Well I for one am not going to, because I found that speech stupid and cheesy.

#gamingis holding it in just a bit longer! Nature can wait, the universe needs saving!
Incidentally, anyone ever get a hernia?

#gamingis refusing to be bested by the hardest diffculty setting. Even it takes all week, you WILL beat that thing!

#gamingis something far too complex and meaningful to be summed up in 140 characters or less.

#gamingis telling yourself just 5 more minutes than you look at the clock and its been 3 hours.

I just noticed, that guy has really short arms.

Hehe! National Gaming Day! Now if only they would let me stay at home for it lol

Gaming is better on the 360 than the PS3!
JK Gaming is having fun no matter what platform you're playing on, and hopefully someday it'll be just one platform or games will have multiplatform multiplayer

#Gamingis saving the game so you can leave and then spending another hour on it.

#Gamingis is in another castle

#Gamingis being more awesome then humanly possible

I'm gonna be honest...I thought once i clicked on this it was something about Justin Beiber talking about gaming...you can now hit me in the face for it.

Gaming is giving your girlfriend the second controller to collect stars in Super Mario Galaxy and counting it as 'bonding' time :)

Gaming is for me to pound my opponents into the dirt and befriend and pound them into the dirt once again.

"Peter, you can't believe everything on the internet" - LOL

Well I will not use Twitter, but I will say it here.

Gaming to me is about exploring fantastic new worlds. Doing things that many only dream of. Its about the adventure into a brand new land, and coming back with many stories to tell.

Don't have Twitter. Never have, never will. But here it is anyway.

#gamingis some of the best moments of my life

#gamingis art. Suck it, Ebert!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

#gamingis putting off work for just five more minutes...well, maybe another half-hour won't hurt

Also, his real name isn't Kevin Butler? Huh.

#gamingis being in a universe where you are in control.

Gaming is.. Showing Dr. Wily it doesn't matter how many robot masters he makes, We will always be the weakness.

#gamingis saying 'Just 5 more mintes', then realising it's 4 in the afternoon and you've missed lunch.

#gamingis spending more money on video games and consoles than food and other real-life necessities.

Hahha, anything you do together counts... my GF tries to get into game, but she's just not very good.... we just beat Super Mario Bros. Wii together, but she spent a lot of the game in a bubble :).
