I truely know what you mean. Although growing up with a younger brother who was massively into nintendo, magic and all that sort of thing, I can catch whiffs of the gamer chat and recognise a few words. A bit like hanging out in a foreign bar where you know how to say 'hello may i please have a drink or 3, thank you.' And that's about it.
That said, I do love cards, backgammon, chess, word games. Minesweeper was a favoured timewaster in the college computer labs. And if we are to include the real life 'games people play' well...
