Entirely depends on a) how you play the games (you could be "hardcore" and not necessarily care about trophies) and b) what plats you have (you could be casual and still have 10 plats).

Treating games like unpaid work, isn't the sign of non casual gamer. It's more of a sign of an OCD gamer

Considering, at least as far as I'm concerned, that casual and hardcore are essentially terms that denote the amount of time you spend playing games, I believe it's impossible to say either way.

You can't directly correlate play time to trophy acquisition. So I'm gonna have to say neither is accurate.

"Cute" is a kiddy euphemism for "Sexy".
Online is the worst thing to happen to gaming.
#5DarkSymbiotePosted 11/10/2013 4:50:40 AM
Deny because many games have outrageous requirements.

Deny. There are plenty of people out there who have over a 100 games played on their psn account with only a plat or 2. I wouldn't call that person a casual.

Considering most platinums require you to grind for hours leveling/finding collectibles/doing the same stuff over and over again, nope. I'd say ''real'' gamers don't care about a virtual trophy.

Lol, trophies? Get a life. I don't even care about trophies on my favorite titles.
#9TriangleMasherPosted 11/10/2013 5:22:23 AM
Hell no. Examples:

Most DMC Truestyle players don't give a crap about trophies, especially when you can just cheese through them with items.

The best of the FGC don't care either because playing on SP = weaker opponents when they could be practicing polishing their BnB's in training mode with Super AI turned on, infinite health to calculate damage variations, faster match resets, and the like. Or they could fight online against opponents to get better at matchup reads.

I got 3 platinums back to back then never cared about a trophy since. Very very boring and I am more proud that I can beat Contra 3 and Castlevania 3 without a gameover than I am of earning those 3 plats.

Huge deny right there. Infact I don't think there is any 1 thing that makes someone a casual or a hardcore gamer. Even if I had the world record speedrun on a game, I feel I could be more casual than someone who's played 1000s more games than me and is above average at them. Hardcore gaming is more of a lifestyle than a feat imo.
