you aren't a hardcore gamer unless you shop at gamestop

I'm sure they'd love to get people to think hardcore gamers shop at gamestop. To me though this means "i'll do whatever it takes to get my fix, even if it means overpaying for used products".

I remember when it was funcoland...actually hell... I used to buy my C-64 games at Babbages in my local mall (which I read in the wiki article is where Gamestop got their start, which I did not know). I guess I'm prehistoric hardcore!

Just some executive prick trying to get in bed with hardcore gamers since he knows they spend the most money.

Casuals are rarely gonna spend money on gaming outside of $1 apps or a Wii which comes with Wii Sports.

If 4 hours per week is considered hardcore, then I would be considered addicted.

This guy doesn't know anything about hardcore gamerz. REAL hardcore gamers don't even buy games. They use the pure power of their superior imagination to create their own games in their minds, then write them directly to hard disk platters in binary code using only a magnetized needle and their impeccable reflexes.

people still buy games at stores? Weird.

"I play about 4 hours of videogames per week"

Thats some hardcore gaming right there.

Yeah I read that and thought "man this is a serious gamer, how can we not take him seriously" But I had about that by the time I left for work this morning.

lol fours hours a week... if that's hardcore than what does 40+ hours put me into?

This guy:
Oh god there's not enough liquor and therapy in the world to undue that.
