I might be taking this a little too far outside of the box, but I'm curious about what Schema.org type to use for a user-profile on my site.

On the front page for instance (http://www.findgamers.us), a random gamer profile loads every time the page is loaded.

Would I use the Person type to make that structured data?

Yes, you could use the Person type.

For a dedicated user profile page (i.e., one user per page), you could use the ProfilePage type:

<body itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ProfilePage">

  <div itemprop="about mainEntity" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">
