Seriously, this. What the hell does "core gamer" mean? It's supposed to be some sort of marketing term used by people in the industry to explain their target audience. Meanwhile, random internet blowhards misappropriated the phrase as an elitist self-descriptor because they think it sounds cool to be part of a non-existent clique of gamers.


Core gamer is the term for the people who built up the console manufacturers and software publishers before they stepped on them and trampled them in hopes of getting more sales through casual gamers. Nintendo's the worst offender but you see it a lot in recent years with lots of companies wanting some of that casual buyer crowd Call of Duty has going for it (ie, look at what Resident Evil has become).




the ps1 and ps2 whre verry casual consoles you know

Not catering to the "core gamer" is a good thing.


Why? That's a strange comment coming from someone on an internet gaming message board.


I can't speak for anyone in this thread other than myself but I ****ing hate the "core gamer". He is the reason why FPS have regenerating health and awful single player campaigns, why computer-style RPGs are removing statistics and builds so it can be easily picked up and played, and why so many games are so goddamn serious.
