An online gamer guy will typically rather talk and chat with you than play games with you.
If he likes you, he will be more concerned in getting to know you than in playing the online game itself at the time of your interaction.
Take this into account the next time you both play a game together online.
Gauge his behavior.
Is he primarily interested in the game?
Is he primarily talking about the game as the both of you are playing or is he talking about you?
When an online gamer guy doesn’t like you, his focus would primarily be in the game and not in chatting with you, about you, during the game.
Another way that you can tell if an online gamer guy likes you is if he tends to be online when you are.
If you have noticed that almost every time you are online, he coincidentally happens to be as well, this is a very strong sign that he may like you.
What he is essentially doing is making time for you.
He is actually rearranging his own schedule to coincide with your own.
That is him really trying to put himself in the position where he at least hopes that you notice that he is online and begin a conversation with him.
Also, an online gamer guy will tend to praise you quite often.
He may always try to encourage you.
He may see your numbers and praise them.
You will notice that he tends to try to lift your spirits up as much as he can.
He may even ask you for tips for how you were able to reach a certain level on a particular game even if he may be way better in that game than you are.
An online gamer guy would also typically start trying to play games that he knows that you tend to play even if he may not particularly like those games himself.
You may notice that when you look at the games he plays, many may actually mirror yours.
This is a very telling way to know that an online gamer guy likes you.
In life, this would be regarded as mirroring someone else’s behavior due to romantic interest.
In body language this can be shown through mirroring posture.
However, being that this is the online world, the equivalent would be him mirroring the games you play.
You will also notice that he will try to master them.
He will try to master them in order to make himself look good in your eyes.
He is hoping that when you notice that not only is he playing the online games that you tend to play but he is also good at them, you may be impressed and be more inclined to talk to him.
An online gamer guy would also ensure that he knows your stats by heart.
You will notice him actually reciting your specific stat numbers on online games you play.
He will give you this kind of information without even having to look it up.
He may bring up those stats right off the top of his head as the both of you converse online.
This is him showing strong interest in you to the point where he actually knows where you stand statistically in different games by memory.
Understanding this will help you gain some insight into how an online gamer guy thinks.
An online gamer guy who isn’t interested in you wouldn’t bother memorizing this kind of information unless he was just one of those really competitive kind of gamer guys.
These are all ways for you to know if an online gamer guy likes you.
If you like him, ensure that you respond to his advances.
The more you engage in conversation with him and show interest in his stats and his life, the more likely he will pursue you and ultimately ask you out.
