OK, if it were me, I'd say "Paul has been a gamer dork from the beginning. His hero as a kid was Hannibal, not Spiderman. He likes to play war games mostly, but will play anything given the chance. Dave says he cheats, but Dave is a sore loser :P."
I like to make games, I like to play games. I'm not so good at "throwing down" on other people's stuff.
