I don't know what would classify somebody as a "hardcore" gamer. The amount of games owned and or played. How interested and invlolved you are in gaming. How many hours a week you devote to gaming.How much knowledge you hold about games and the industry. Or if you play online with other players. All of these or a combination of these or if you just really like to play games.
When can you truly call yourself a HardCore Gamer? Can you even call yourself one or does it take a gaming community to "knight" you as a Hardcore Gamer? When do you transition from a casual gamer to become a hardcore gamer? How many and what different classifications of gamers are there?
Often do I see the name in magazines, news posts, and gameshows. So I ask you, the gaming community: writers, editors, reviewers, previewers,and of course gamers: What makesone a "Hardcore" gamer?
