OCN is full of elitists who need to step off their PC pedestal. A hardcore gamer is simply someone who takes gaming a bit more seriously, and plays games more often. It doesn't matter if it is a PC or a console, and there's no reason somebody cannot love both.

Got in 1986:
Commodore 64
Intellivision

1988:
Intel 8088

1989:
NES

1991:
SNES

1992:
486 DX4/33

And on, and on. I'd argue that you're not "hardcore" unless you enjoy games on multiple platforms.

this fits my definition of a "hardcore gamer" but i still wouldn't be very proud of calling myself a kind of guy who takes video games very seriously and plays too much of them, so go ahead and argue who deserves the title of being a loser OCN. lmao at all yall

there's a disconnect between industry lingo and acutal lingo us gamers think.

in gaming, there are 4 categories:

1. core
2. social
3. educational
4. casual.

hardcore means core which means pretty much every game that is talked about here.

So... that makes a "hardcore console gamer" a person who over-indulges in less complex games that require less skill and less learning that have been trimmed down to run on hardware that's been out of date for nearly half a decade. Sorry, but everything in there doesn't seem to point to anything hardcore. Sure, you can call them avid gamers, obsessed gamers, stupid gamers or just call them console gamers, but I hardly think the 'hardcore' label applies to anything about console gaming except how much you no-life in front of a TV. Yeah, that much is hardcore, but I wouldn't call it hardcore gaming. lol
since when does skill have anything to do with being considered "hardcore"? I suppose if you mean that if someone plays a particular game really well, they are hardcore - but in that definition or application of the word: then your little rant on skill becomes invalid.

And actually yes, there is alot of skill whether you think so or not that goes into alot of console games. There are some super amazing CoD players even if they play on the 360.
And your logic makes no sense when you say how much they have no life infront of a TV just because they play on consoles. How does that make ANY sense at all? Just because they play on a different configuration of hardware then someone else on the PC means that they have no life? That has got to be the WORST illogical garbage I've ever heard with someone bashing console gamers.

You guys are taking this all wrong. What he meant by "hardcore" was the lineup of motion sex games that are coming for the Kinect.

Anyway I that's nice for xbox but the for the pc microsoft basicly treats it like the bastard child. It knows it made it but doesn't claim or support it.

I wouldn't consider those really "hardcore", I was thinking more of ArmaA style games.

Well I didn't read all of it, I don't really agree with the sitting in front of the TV no life part.

I withdraw my statement sorry. I saw you say you agree and I just cant fathom anyone even making a connection between the two, because it's the same thing as saying everyone has no life because we're all essentially doing the same thing: gaming.
