I dont know of any instance that gaming is to be nerdy or geeky or anything. Mostly its just plain cool if you have 30 games or more. This is not the 80's. Offcourse the're are kind of nerdy people out there. But whats a nerd anyway. Its a declassified term. Its whats used in highschool, or somethin like that. Yeah sure u should'nt scream about the world that youre a "hardcore" gamer or somethin. Its the same as screeming on the street "I LOVE TO MOUNTAINBIKE AND MAKE LOVE AS A HOBBY!". That also would seem as to being weird. So dont worry dear thread starter, as long as you dont make youre hobby (any hobby for that matter) the beginning of a sentence

Gaming is becoming a cool thing these days anyway, what with games like San Andreas, Half Life 2 and so on, there really popular with everyone. If someone asks (and have asked) me what i do in my spare time i'll say i play video games, and nobody cares, they just go "oh, cool." .... its really not important to anyone who has half an ounce of maturity.

since im out of school i cant really say that i play football anymore, i play maybe once a month but its not a big thing. i dont just go and say "hey ima hardcore gamer" and when i say that i am i say it with some humor so thet know im not really hardcore but i just love gaming. anyone know what im saying?
I get you. Some people on here, no offense, are just full of crappy small minded advice. Don't act something your not, just channel what you are into something useful. Talking to anyone, don't come up and say "I'm 1337", just start a normal conversation, then when they suddenly say "I'm having a problem with my PC...etc.", help them. They'll think better of you for it. I know what your saying but don't say hardcore, just say "yeh, I love games or something", more casual like.

Well its cool if you play games like those (CounterStrike and World of Warcraft as well). Any other games are looked down upon for some reason. (I love HL 2 tho)

Heh, I don't even kid around with stuff like that. :p That's right up there with saying "pwned" or "noob" out loud.
what is a hard core gamer anyways. is it someone who plays all day every day or someone thats been playing for a long time and likes to play.. i've been playing videogames for a long time and i'm quite good at all games because if u play one first person shooter you've played them all..as for all games... there all the same. as for appearence back then when u played games u were a nerd but now everyone plays videogames if u go to a cyber cafe u see all kinds of people playing. everyone plays videogames
I always walk up to girls and introduce myself by saying "Hey, I'm Lord Sephiroth a lvl 40 Paladin I have over 150,000 gold, fancy a chat?" Unfortunatly they often either tell me to "Shut up and leave me alone" or "You geek get away" So for now I'm just working my way up to lvl 60 so they know I'm pr0, I also intend to get more gold, I mean ladies sure like money, or so I've been told. Soon I'll be able to pick her up on my warhorse too. Most girls aren't 1337 enough for me and they become uncomfortable when I keep shouting "Pwned" in the movie theatre and "Boom Headshot" when someone kills someone in the films. I don't understand women ... Women can be such n00bs sometimes, I guess I'm too pr0. One day I'll find someone 1337 enough hopefully a level 60 Elven rogue but ... one can only hope.

w00t_w00twhat is a hard core gamer anyways.
Hardcore gamers is a term used to describe a type of video gamer. Hardcore gamers are gamers who like to play games more than watching TV, going out, et al. They are also the driving force behind the games market because they play more games & own more games than your average video game player.
This term is also used to describe games who value gameplay over graphics. In theory, a hardcore gamer doesn't care if a game has bad graphics as long as the gameplay is good while, in theory, a casual gamer will not play a with bad graphics even if the game is fun.
Hardcore gamer is also used as a derogatory term when it is used in comparison to a casual gamer.
