Anyone that follows trends exclusively and buy into the big money titles since they're 10 aren't gamers.


Why is it wrong to play the better games?

So how would you define hardcore gamers?


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."


This.

with how casualized and moneygrubbing the console industry has become, i find it hard to even classify any console gamer as being "hardcore".


Yeah, because there are no casual games on the PC whatsoever. Nor do PC publishers and devs worry about profits at all.

Get over yourself.

I'd say anyone who plays more than a few hours a week, and they typically play more than just one genre of game.

Anyone who throws up and continues to play. I've done this twice in 8+ years of alcoholism.

I think a hardcore gamer is somebody who plays video games while listening to Black Flag or Minor Threat.
