I don't get why there's a question mark at the end of that sentence. Niche Japanese games don't sell big in the west.

Well there's Three Types of Hardcore Gamers

1. The Elitist ones that think their better because they play Obscure Games. The Hipsters of Gaming
2. The Ones that play Generic "Mature" games with Violence 'n Blood, like CoD and Such
3. The Ones that Play Good Games regardless of how popular they are, or how much "Mature" content is in the games. Sometime, Popular games ARE good.
They made a moon base to survey my standards but they have yet to make visual contact.

The people on sites like this are a very small sect of the gaming populace. All of us here are fairly into gaming, "hardcore," I would bet. We know games, we know when they're coming.

You're probably just taking what you see here and thinking "Well if it's like this here, then all people who play games must think this" when gaming is too massively popular now to do that.
Keep calm and hee-ho

Because for every 1 hardcore gamer, there are 10,000 casuals.

That's why it's called niche. Duh.

And how could niche games players be elitist? Isn't that what makes a hardcore gamer?
