Hardcore gaming has always been about the amount of time invested. You can't be hardcore if you don't have what most people would consider an excessive amount of time to play. Hardcore players have this time so they naturally learn/master/complete games faster. Once this happens, it becomes more about using that mastery/max level/shit in a competitive way.

I ain't saying that hardcore players are the best at the game, because there are plenty of hardcore players that are bad. If you read anything other than rage comics and lolmarkovforums, you'd have a deeper understanding of this truth.

Here's a little example that may, or may not open your eyes to what the hell you're trying to agrue against but are looking like an idiot doing so.

I had several friends in WoW that almost never raided or PvP'd, but still spent 6+hours every day 7 days a week playing the game...for 5 years. They basically ran the auction houses on a couple of servers back in the day. They were slightly infamous and when people like you would inspect their gear they would have to deal with the same tripe I'm dealing with now. These guys would handle it by opening a trade with the morons and put up 50 squillion gold.

These dudes made hundreds of real dollars, but by your shitty definition they wouldn't be considered hardcore because they weren't using their ubarskillz to pwn noobs.

TLDR; You're such an average 'leet' or '1337' gamer. Good skills (supposedly), shit brains.
I don't know who you're referring to, but i hope to god it isn't me. I'd rather not knock you down off your high horse. I'd rather not waste my time because you seem like the type that doesn't know when to quit.

I will quote myself because this doesn't seem to be getting across,

everyone has their own opinion of what hardcore is.
It's just a discussion, but it's irritating when people think that what they think is right is the only thing that's right and attack others for having an opinion

I think we can all agree that Urban Dictionary is the most reliable source for all of our obscure English word needs:

Hardcore

having an intense (often excessive) interest in or enthusiasm for some particular activity, pastime or hobby
I can't believe he went to a strip club at 12:30 in the afternoon. That's pretty hard core.

The truth is that there is no consensus on what the definition of 'hardcore gamer' really is. Mostly because discussion on the topic ends up like this thread. Oops.

There are some things that have become accepted over the years. Do a lil Google search and there's loads of articles on this subject. Having an opinion on something is fine. People are entitled to their opinion.

The problem is when people start trying to defend an opinion that is wrong, or very close to wrong. Contrary to what we are all taught in the second grade, opinions can be wrong.

Oh shucks, I was almost certain that Urban Dictionary would have the porn meaning first.

I'm gonna throw in an 'other' option too, because I think I made that sound biased.
i enjoy playing with teamwork but i dont care about stats
i like getting shit done but im laid back and enjoy it

imo stats dont really mean shit in an mmofps (in ps1 it diddnt anyways)

Of course I'm going to be playing to do well, but that doesn't mean I have to follow the "established rules" of how to play. Part of the fun is using the unorthodox.

shit, forgot about the urban dictionary, this always right. Speaking of that, who wants to taste the rainbow in the middle of an Eiffel tower with me?
