Hardcore vs Casual Gamers

Hardcore vs Casual Gamers

It’s quite difficult to determine what a hardcore gamer and what a casual gamer actually is, as there are a few factors to take into consideration when comparing the two. Factors like how much they play and what types of games they play.

When I first thought of what a hardcore gamer is, I initially thought of a chubby teenager/young adult sat playing World of Warcraft in his parents house 24/7. But that is not the case; I think to be considered as a hardcore gamer depends on what games you play and how long you play them for. For example, if you have just bought the new Call of Duty game and you spend all day and night playing multiplayer it, even taking time off of work or college to play it; this would make them a hardcore gamer in my eyes. If someone bought the new CoD game but only played a few online matches a day, I would class them as a casual gamer.

Also when I thought of what a Casual gamer is at first, I imagined a middle aged man, sat playing Facebook games or playing Solitaire, but once again that is not the case. People tend to think that the Game Farmville is a game that only casual gamers play, but this game can get very addictive and people can spend hours and hours on end just trying to get the best farm. Which would class them people as a possible hardcore gamer because of the amount of hours they dedicate to games like that.
