Why are people so against being labeled as being a casual or hardcore gamer?

There are casual movie goers and movie junkies.
There are causal sport fans and hardcore sports nuts.
There are so many hobbies and interests that have their own casual and enthusiastic fans, why not gaming?

Seacrest Out.

Because labeling is shallow.

Generally, people hate being labeled period. That is, unless they label themselves.

No idea. I don't consider myself to be "hardcore" because I do enjoy a lot of casual games. I just think of myself as a hobby gamer. My hobby extends into board and card games, including both casual and "hardcore" board and card games.

When I label games as casual I'm not trying to be insulting about it. Just labeling games as what they really are.

I don't care. Call me casual. Call me hardcore. I genuinely do not give a s***.

Just let me play my damn games.

If life seems jolly rotten, there's something you've forgotten...And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.

Here's the analogy I like to use to explain Hardcore vs Casual: Some people use TV to watch a Football game, others use TV to watch a Football movie. Either way is the correct use of the TV.
