There are a lot of definitions of the fabled casual gamer and I find all of them wrong. Imo, this below is the most accurate description of the casual gamer

Casual gamer is a person who enjoys games with less depth and thinks it's perfectly ok to think a very simple input game like flappy bird is the best game ever made.

Casual gamer is also a person who says 'but I don't have the patience and don't want to spend all that time to play this complex rpg all the way to the end'. I might just play a little cod here and there.

A hardcore gamer is a person who plays through and enjoys immensely a complicated non mmo rpg and tries to complete all side quests as well.

A hardcore gamer is also someone who looks for more in a game than jumping over obstacles or pew pew pew.

Agree or disagree?

Agreed somewhat.

Casual - someone who play games occasionally and don't keep up with gaming news aside from games that has heavy marketing behind it.

Hardcore - someone who follows gaming news closely and when he plays a game he enjoys, he wants to understand all the intricacies.

I think casual gamers are people who aren't very competitive about their games and who don't devote a certain percentage of their time or money into gaming.

Unless they're not a virgin, nor a basement dweller... but they still enjoy hardcore gaming.

Doh!

Not taking Gamefaqs seriously since 2004. Gamefaqs mods are a joke.

There really isn't a definition for hardcore or casual gamer. I avoid using the terms because they really don't mean anything and each person will interpret them differently. To me, you either play games or you don't.
