In studies on contemporary Japanese culture, they use "Gemu Otaku" in the sense of "video game nerd", "game freak".
- Is this an academic term only or do people actually use this term in Japanese everyday speak?
- I was wondering, how is it spelled correctly? Or at least commonly? Many sources read "Gemu Otaku", Google Translate spits out "Gēmuotaku" or Gēmu no otaku".
- How is it written in actual Japanese, i.e., not romanized?
