I hate the term hardcore gamer... and yet I find myself using it often

casual gamer will say hey look i can play games waveing my hands around like an idiot. or wow i can change tv channels with voice commands herp derp. or i can order pizza from my xbox one and play the inferior versions of multiplats on it while getting achievements.

hardcore gamer will say wow this the most powerful home console hardware that will have superior multiplats and way more and varied AAAA exclusives with tons of different genres. or wow this have free online for all my games, or wow this console allows me to play offline and used games as well with no extra fees.

All these terms become so cliche - wonder if people actually know what they mean by them.

Hardcore gamers are people who made it through Ravenholm.

I dont get to play games as much as i would like to anymore but i HATE casual games.. I cant stand phone games or motion control titles.. I need a controller in my hands & a game that requires skill & thinking to complete.. Not just point & shoot or dancing around getting points.. To me, shooters are casual games but to each his own..

Well I love games so I can spend hours playing Forza or Uncharted, but I will sometimes find myself playing paper toss on my phone all day.
