All you have to do to be an ultra gamer is come home and play a game for 1 hour every weekday? They should also state the max number of hours the "Ultra Gamers" play. There is nothing "Ultra" about 5 hours a week, more like "Ultra Casual". If this is what is considered alot for consoles, then 100% of PC gamers are the "Ultimate Gamers". My Grandmother plays POGO games for 4 hours a day, I used to play Atari at her house, she's my hero.
