Can we take the word "casual" out our vocabulary, plz?

It's being overused and misused so much, that it has little meaning to me everytime I hear it.

Agreed. If a game is popular and accessible then it's casual. If a game is a b**** to figure out and very counter intuitive then it's the GOAT and must be defended as if it was a religion that you started.

No. What we can do is start using the word correctly though. Casual is just a word. It represents a concept. That's how communication works. If we stop using that word, that doesn't mean that the concept of "casual" suddenly doesn't exist anymore.

A lot of people feel the same about the word scrub but I'm quite fond of it regardless.

Looks like you've already removed the word "of" from your vocabulary, why not just be mute?

I would like to point out the stupidity of this response, but it would be too easy.

Then what would we call Casual fridays? That seems like a horrible idea.

I agree. We should start calling it "handicapped". What's your favorite handicapped game?
