While I agree, to an extent, there's no such thing as real gamer's Either you game, or you don't. The ones who buy the 1-5 dollar specials here and there? Those are time killers. Ask them if they are gamer's...they'll say no.
Now gamer's, like myself, play everything if it's quality. Yes, that includes the casual games as well. Rated M-E, I don't judge. If the game play is fun, I'll play it. IMO, more "real gamer's" need to have this mind set. Why? It's the smaller market/casual market that keeps the industry fresh, just like the mature games.
If that's your preference...cool. But the judgmental people in this industry can't get it through their heads that there's more to games than rated M super serious games. To be frank? I feel bad for the "real gamer"...as they limit their library. So many games that are awesome, but overlooked because it's not serious in tone. or not rated M.

Judging by your last 2 paragraphs we are on the same page then. Your post right here and my first one right above yours state the same thing. I was making the same point.
I used the term "real gamer" to describe somebody who would play a game like Wonderful 101 despite it not being the rated M dark gritty westernized shooter after pointing out the ridiculous bias the TC and people like him/her have for Nintendo systems saying there isn't any rated M games at all.
With that said, just like with quick 5 minute phone games and huge money sink broken mechanic social games, if a person only plays the big budget CoD and Halo like games, they're not gamers. I had a roomate that was like that and he would tell you straight up, he's not a gamer. I also have a cousin that only plays Halo, CoD and WoW and he'll tell you straight up, he's not a gamer. To be a real fan of any 1 thing, you have to be pationate about it and care about it enough to follow it and try new things. If people are only willing to play CoD and Halo that doesn't make them much of FPS fan much less a gamer.

I'm going to be buying a Wii U when the game comes out, the hype is definitely not due to being starved for games.
Because it's a new, awesome looking IP that has had rave previews from all who've played it till this point created by a man who's gaming resume wipes it's ass with practically anybody else you can name drop in video games. Wonderful 101 is a BIG game.
lol. TC is full of so much fail.
I always rush here to tell GameFAQs my problems!
Because it looks humorous. Gaming today is a twisted bitter landscape of faux maturity and teeth gnashing, where is the fun, humor and light heartedness?
As long as you're in my house, you'll do what I do, and believe what I believe. So butter your bacon... and bacon up that sausage, boy.

Sad to say it but I think I agree with this poster, though I'm not a huge Pikmin fan either although I do own both games
I like how my opinion is being trashed
