I used to think the term "casual" was an insult but as I took a look at my life and saw that I have a wife, kids, a job and a life that JUST happened to involve "casually" playing video games like Borderlands 2 that I realized that I may have a problem.

If anyone else just "casually" plays this game, please post here. I could use the support...

I don't really want to lose my wife, kids and normal life but I am afraid if I want to stop being a "casual" I may have to do so. After all I think that is step three in recovery from being a "casual".


I too am a casual that suffers from this disease known as "a life". I hear some Scientists in Germany are working on a cure but until then I go to regular treatments... These treatments include playing borderlands for more than 1 hour at a time and regularly putting off due dates along with family... Soon my friend we will join the elite gamers... Soon... soon.


I must join this treatment program! Thank you for the heads up Steve. We all need to stick together to beat this disease of casualness.

2 cents.

This game doesn't require enough skill to even allow the term "casual" to be used in the context people use it for on this board.

A fighting game. A competitive multiplayer fps. A racing game. Things that require a certain amount of dexterity and know-how. But saying a borderlands player is casual is like saying a tic tac toe player is casual. It's just ... unnecessary. Lol.

I think you are correct but I am still confused that the term is still, often thrown around slanderously on this board;-)

I am sorry everyone but I should have thought of this before I posted this topic...

There is an easy way to stop being a "casual" and I will share it with you all. This morning I got up and wanted to play some Borderlands 2 so I simply went out and bought a tuxedo. Sure it took me a few hours to be fitted and some cash to rush getting it tailored but as I am now sitting down to play, in a cummerbund, bow tie and tails I finally feel I am not just a casual gamer.

I feel much better about myself for not casually playing this game,
