1. A Hype Casual is a person who only plays games that are hyped up and are popular. They also care for games that only have good graphics.
2. A Hype Casual does not know what true gaming is and probably entered the scene of gaming when the xbox 360 came out.
3. They lack knowledge of gaming history and tend to dislike any game that doesn't even appeal to them *regardless if they played them*
4. Most of all they lack patience and because of this they are not able to defeat games on harder difficulties.
These people aren't considered gamers.
