...They Are The Worst Kind of Gamers

Ironstar: Core gamers can respect almost any genre of gaming, hence, their appreciation of the art, and hobby that is gaming. Believe it or not, there are far more non-core (casual) gamers than there are core gamers, core gamers being ones that are likely reading this article right now. I think "real" gamers are the coolest people on Earth; we are just the most rational kind of human species. The reason why I feel core gamers deserve more "praise" is because, day-in and day-out, we're gamers.

I beg the differ. There are core gamers, then there are real gamers. Core gamers get every COD that comes out every year and plays only that and madden. Real gamers have all systems, plays a wide range of types of games, wether it be a board game, iphone app game, psn titles, pc, or nintendo games. Core gamers are the ones that sit on this site all day talking about how great their 360 but yet only play multiplats. Core gamers swear up and down Fable 2 is better than Fable 1.

LOL! Believe it or not, casual gamers are the ones that actually buy games. They are the most important group of gamers this gen. If it wasn't for them, publishers would have probably gave up on gaming, and we wouldn't be getting half the hardcore games we have now because the cost of making most hardcore games doesn't hardly bring them much of a profit. Publishers make the most money from cheaply made, and without the casual gamer, gaming as we know it would be in its death bed. The recession has alot to do with that as well.

Core gamers and casual gamers are two completely different type of gamers. Casual are the ones that buy Madden and COD yearly, core gamers are the "real" gamers. You're basically making the same points as in the article, but your references are entirely wrong. Casual gamers are the reason why developers have shy'd away from hardcore games, because they intimidate casual gamers.

My reply would have been "just look on this website for the worst kind of gamers"
Point proved already

I doubt both of you even read the article, STFU, people like you on N4G take everything at face value.

DMason3028d ago

So what about the group of us who enjoy all games, including COD and Madden? I've played Demon Souls but I also pick up 2k and Fifa every year. You believe that these companies are striving to make playable art for us? Yes and no, because the gaming industry is a business.

You make core gamers out to be elitist snobs. Can't we just play games and not make the distinction between gaming "classes"? This isn't the caste system.

A hardcore gamer is the one that devote a lot of time to play video games and prefers to take significant time and practice on games, in contrast to a casual gamer but a casual gamer can spend hours or days on a games without ever mastering them.

For example those interested to get every achievement or trophy in a game. Another example are those who like to compete in events, tournaments and form clans to compete with others.

A casual gamer is somebody that play video games to just have a moment of fun.

A Loyalist Gamer is the one that just play and follow an specific console, game or developer. They always try to justify why what they play or have is the best and only best shit ever and that only exclusive games are real games. What they do and foment is division and have the mistake to believe that they are real gamers. If you follow their typical believe then games like PAC MAN, Marvel vs Capcom and many other similar game that do not compete visually with games like Uncharted, Mass Effect, Halo Reach, Gears of War, Killzone, or RAGE for example they just believe or proclaim that they suck. They claim to be graphic whore but they don't have knowledge of what is art. Also they believe that is a game its not an exclusive is not good.

Question: Is Rage or Crysis 2 a multiplatform game or an exclusive?

Real gamers are those who don't care about console/platform, brands and graphics they can have fun in every great game that have a great game play and story.

Question: Do you remember that 1st time when you played Halo 1? What hook you up to the game? The graphics? The Game play? or the Story? Did you knew back in those days about the talent of Bungie? Did you knew anything about Halo before? SO WHY THE FUCK DID YOU KEEP PLAYING AND FINISHED THE GAME? Did you said "oh its not a ps2 console or ps2 game i am NOT playing this shit"?

You actually wrote something I agreed with. I didn't agree with every point but enough to hit the agree button.

I want to add my own caption to that photo: "Yeah, GTFO you stupid droids. Kinect will pwn Sony and will be the final nail in PS3's coffin. That's a FACT!!! Now get outta here, this is my ball pit at Chuck E. Cheeses"

@ Timerland

Oh I'm sorry officer, please don't cite me. I'll be more careful next time if you let me go...

Some people take their hobbies a little too seriously.

Magna Farta3029d ago

...just a "worst" kind of person.

Most fanboys and other people who rip on other people for having different systems are at heart just really bad people. Weak-willed, callous, and quite frankly failures of individuals that would rather see someone else with nothing than be happy with what they themselves have.

TheBuIIetSponge3029d ago

You got to justify your purchase some how. Most people can't afford more then one system, then something nice pops up on the other console so they convince themselves it shit and they don't want it.

Count3029d ago

Or fanboy in general.

telekineticmantis3029d ago

Only an Xbox fanboy can hate a Sony fanboy that much

Armyntt3029d ago

Fanboys ruin gaming on the conversation level but at a consumer level they are needed from a financial level.
