So how would you define hardcore gamers? and what games (any gaming format) would you think or say they play that most people don't?

Maybe somebody who games in tournaments for money (AKA e-sports.) I don't know, I don't really like breaking everything down into subcategories. You're a gamer or you aren't.

Someone who plays a game to be good at it, rather than just having fun. People who play in Tourneys and Competitions to earn a living for example.

Core gamers are people who play a decent variety of games on dedicated platforms for fun.

Casuls are people who just play generic modern military Shooters (Especially on consoles) or Phone/Web/Facebook games. I'm sure there's somethng I've left out.

People that play all sorts of games, and have a modicum of skill. Not like people on Reddit who only gush over the latest flavor of the month narrative crap fest.


I'll play anything.

To me, a Hardcore gamer is someone whose primary hobby and pastime, is gaming. Not someone who only fires up Angry Birds while taking a dump. Someone to whom playing for 2 hours straight is "a good warmup."

I have heard different people use the term for different things.

To me, they are the people who do not exclusively play the more mainstream focused games. While many people use a much more strict definition, I notice that when people from " the industry" are talking about "the hardcore gamer" this is what they mean.
