I would say that I am a hardcore gamer all the way. I buy and beat games like crazy!
Casual, as I just randomly pick some game and play it for a while, and usually only once or twice a day. Usually ends up as Wii Sports if I could be bothered, or Guitar Hero or Kingsom hearts

I'm casual as well.
Both. I get only a couple games a year but play them all the way through and they are pretty deep. Zelda, Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy, etc.
fairly hardcore, sometimes i loose track of time.

I'm not even gonna fake the other. I'm a hardcore gamer. I spaz out when I don't play a game in a week. I have to beat games better and faster than my friends (and do with most of them). I take a lot of my time out. For example, Christmas Day I got Final Fantasy XII, I played it the whole day and next day, then I stumbled upon this forum and got me into wanting the wii more, but still.
I finish every game I get. Unless I get bored and think the game is retardedly tedious. Which I do from time to time (never was able to finish GTA:SA..)

I'm in between casual gamer and hardcore gamer. I tend to be a hardcore gamer on certain games on the PC like Counter-strike, or WoW, but normally I'm a casual gamer when it comes to console games. I think that will all change when I get my hands on the Wii.
i think that kids under the age of 14-15 are excluded from the hardcore category (including myself). with the occasional exception, we rely on our parents to buy new games, and unless we have really rich parents we can probably get 1 game per month, giving us more time than we need to finish the game.
i think that the wii will really boom with the online... thats when the hardcore gamers will really stand out...
