The opposite to a dedicated video gamer.
Casuals are generally new to video gaming and have small experience.
Common definitions of Casual gamers are...

1. Don't play games that often
2. Gamers limited to a few popular mainstream genres (sports, racing, FPS) i.e Call of Duty. They don't expand to other types of genres (RTS, TBS, RPG) i.e any strategic game.
3. Gamers who play recreationally; for fun, rather then play more competitively
4. An insult used by more hardcore/elitist gamers who believe casuals are gaming scum (for most of these reasons)
5. Gaming Rookie or Newbie (not noob)
6. Those who play more simpler games (Facebook games, Flash games, Mobile Games, F2P). See 2. as well
7. Undedicated gamers (cheap computers and console/handheld users).

It's all to one's opinion and perspective.
Also, casuals sometimes get caught in the crossfire of ''The Great PC vs Consoles War'' where the ''PC Master Race'' duke it out with the ''Console Peasants''. Though it doesn't happen usually.

4. Hardcore Gamer: I wish we had less casuals, who play small time games

Elitist Gamer: I had one on my LoL team, he was worser then nothing.

1. "Casual Gamer" - A person who plays video games on an infrequent basis. Usually these games require low time investment and can be played or discontinued on a whim.

2. "Casual" - A pejorative term used by the "gaming elite" to describe any person(s) who doesn't measure up the standards these sycophants have set for their definition of what a true gamer is. The term is becoming quite popular on forums and will no doubt replace "noob" as the new insult gamers use to insult fellow gamers.
Tom: "Dude I just logged 400 hours in FTL, and unlocked all the ships! I'm so uber l337 MLG PRO!"

Steve: "And in that amount of time I could have beaten Arkham Asylum 12 or 15 times. Why are you bragging that you wasted your time?"

Tom: "Pfff, casuals like you just don't understand."

The polar opposite of a Hipster.

A person obsessed with being normal, or is extremely attached to social norms. They are usually anal retentive, judgemental, and often force the people around them to avoid violating their comfort zones. For most, this is impossible, because the comfort zone of a Casual is beyond massive. In fact, people 50 miles away violate it by picking their nose.

Casuals are at high risk of suffering a mid-life crisis because they never experiment, and discourage those who do.

Christian parents are Casuals.
