Are you kidding me? Since when is it considered casual gaming if you don't play games online?

The term "Hardcore Gamer" applies to many things. You don't have to be 10th prestige in MW2 to be a Hardcore gamer. I'd say that if you still play classic NES games for hours on end, and you have enthusiasm for games from many time periods, then you are a hardcore gamer.

I didnt even know people thought like this. For example people playing the Demons Souls games are not casuals.

I will say that anyone playing CoD as their primary game of choice is a casual.

The term "hardcore" gamer was conjured by casual 360 gamers who wanted to differentiate themselves from the casual Wii gamers.
