casual gamers make up the silent majority of computer and console game players that:

1, use pc and console games as a means of socializing or to connect with friends rather than as an achievement or to further their reputation as a skillful game player.

2, are by definition inferior in skill to any hardcore gamer.

3, do not play casual games.

4, play mainly console based games due to their ease of setup and "plug & play" capabiliy.

5, inherently feel a need to confront hardcore gamers due to their own inferior skills and the hardcore gamers inherent need to prove victorious.
Any casual gamer that successfully challenges a hardcore gamer is not a casual gamer, but a hardcore gamer in denial.

Obviousy, all gamers are bound by the desire to win at any given game, there would be no point to any game if that were not true, but the over-riding desire to connect with other individuals, be it close friends or distant aquaintances define the casual gamer.

Hardcore gamers have a generally negative, and often derogatory view of casual gamers, looked upon as the plauge of the video game industry. While hardcore gamers are in the minority of gamers they provide an invaluable resource to developers on both the hardware and software end. Without the hardcore gamers passion and dedication to the art, we would not have the quality games that are available today.

Since the purchase power of the casual gamer determines what becomes a best seller, it is understandable why the hardcore gamer has such contempt for the group.

The science that studies video games, the study of video games.
Going far beyond the mortal uber-nerd, the videogameologist has written a 90 page abstract on why we choose Ruy over Chun Li while playing SF2 even though she's damn hot.
