You are not a hardcore gamer cause you play casual shooters, MLG isn't hardcore, playing ONE game isnt hardcore.

A videogame enthusiast who does not care what system he/she is playing on, as long as the game in question is both fun (read: controls well, intrigueing and inventive gameplay, ect.) and challenging. A hardcore gamer realises that there is merit to many games on a variety of systems and often owns all of the currently available systems.

One variation on this term would be Insane hardcore gamer: A gamer who owns as many videogames as he/she can possibly get his/her hands on, often never finishing even half of what he/she owns, and also seeking out deals on famous/favourite/rare games just so that they can be added to his/her collection.
Jerry is a hardcore gamer, and owns over 200 games on 9 systems. He is always looking to expand his collection.

a casual gamer minus a girlfriend, wife, job or some form of satisfying social life. They are mostly teenage boys, but some are grown men with the mentality of the average teenage boy.

note: they also never left the house or spoke to another human being n person during that entire 48 hour period.

A nicer way to say "Virgin until the age of 37"
John is a hardcore gamer. He spends all his money on video games and has no friends. He constantly bitches about how his favorite RPG's soundtrack is sub-par compared to the last game in the series on IRC chatrooms with other losers like him. Despite their constant bitching, the video game companies do not give a shit about their lousy opinions. He has never made contact with a woman that is not his mother. Ever.
