There are some arenas so corrupt that the only clean acts possible are nihilistic

Yea seriously. It's like not even standard for me to go 4 hours at a time without standing up from my gaming throne. Totally not at all.

If I get less than 20 hours a week I'm doing it wrong :) Gamestop is fine but hardly for the hardcore. I think us pc gamers are more hardcore with our digital distribution. Play games while downloading other games while taking a dump, surfing the net and listening to music all at the same time. Its not just me, don't pretend like you are above some angry birds while droppin a deuce.

You have to consider that in console land a hardcore gamer is someone who plays call of duty and madden more than 7 hours a week and buys each edition every year. A casual gamer is probably a non 12-25 year old male who owns a wii and plays wii fit 30 minutes a week.

There's a reason gamestop doesn't carry pc games anymore.
