A New Breed, A Hybrid: The Casual Hardcore Gamer

"Casual games have done something wonderful. No. Seriously.

It is cold and wet and rainy. I am inside and it is night. The week is ending, varsity is under control and for a brief moment, I feel at peace. I enrobe myself in my favourite hoody and my warmest pants, I prepare the most glorious cup of tea and then nestle in front of my computer.

My chair creaks, my desktop hums and whirrs, crickets start a choir. Silence."

- Jake Woolf (eGamer Columnist) (BioShock: Infinite, Dishonored, Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Casual hardcore... I like the term because I think it actually fits a majority of gamers out there. Far more so than just Hardcore or Casual does.

Because calling people who like to play "gamer" is just too difficult.
