There are two ways to classify gamers, by time and genre.

Time: The basic and easy to define archetype.

Casual: These gamers often log less than 20 hours of play time a week

Core: The bulk of gamers, the play usually between 20-30 hours a week

Hardcore: These gamers manage to log 30-40+ hours a week. I fit into this genre.

-SubCore: Gamers that would be hardcore, but are restricted on time, because of parental/girlfriend/boyfriend interference.

Lead: These are the gamers you see at the top of the leaderboards, and statistically, for most games, these people work less than 20 hours a week. for most games this is the line you don't want to cross.
