I hear complaints from hardcore gamers about how casual gamers ruin the industry, so what does it take to qualify as a hardcore gamer? Hardcore gamers if you don't like the "casual games" or the current trending games, why not go on steam, buy Garry's Mod and try making your own games, or playing indie games. These are good games, but there's alot more fun gaming experiences to have. I don't mean to pigeon hole gamers and I am for the most part against it, but I think we all should try to identify more as intermediate gamers and make a scale with numbers on how dedicated we are to gaming instead of making it one or the other, what are your opinions on this?
