    I catagorize a hardcore gamer as someone who spends an excessive amount of time/money on computer games. saying mmorpg players arent really gamers is gettin too technical for my liking. Society in gereral doesn't care...
    Much like the way you will find My Chemical Romance CDs in the Rock/Metal section of HMV when they're actually "emo" / "screamo" or whatever - thing is no-one really cares... And those who do need to get a life...
    To me someone who is gonna buy a ps3, an xbox360 and a wii is a hardcore gamer. Someone who owns a ps2, a gc, an x-box and a sh*t load of games for each console is also in my book - pretty hardcore. (unless you are a kid and your mum/mom bought you them. Then you are just a spoilt brat)
    People who spend 500$ on a new gpu twice a year are pretty hardcore. Categorization is made for convenience and to be less vague.. Telling someone that My Chemical Romance is "rock/metal" isn't going to give them the slightest idea of what the music is actually like.

    Dude you sould take those comments a little tongue in cheek. I myself am level 28 Wow. and play hl2/counter strike. But if you think that playing WoW aint a geeky thing to do then we are clearly on different wave-lengths...

    Ditto, if you knew me and my roomates IRL you would never guess that we ever do stuff on the PC, or that we use to play WoW religiously. PC gamers tend to be more closeted about there playing.

    But if you think that playing WoW aint a geeky thing to do then we are clearly on different wave-lengths...
    Playing WoW in general isn't geeky, it's how you react to the game that can make it geeky. And like i said, you can't really lump MMORPG players in with PC gamers. Because there are tons and tons of MMORPG players who have never been into another pc game in there life. I could personally name off like 10 who were never into any type of gaming.



    And my point being in all of these posts, if that it will all meld with PC gaming. Game consoles are more and more becoming melded with PC's and eventually PC processing will(pretty much already has, just not widely on the market) catch up with game consoles. PC gaming was and is the future of hardcore gaming.

    Geeze is this thread about is WoW geeky? Lol I think it is - but its just one mans opinion. None of the guys I play football with - or work with - or drink with - or even the musicians I know play WoW.
    Most play console games though and even pc fps some of them.

    Unfortunately for your argument, Scotland doesn't make up for too much of the gaming world.

    Eventually PC games will be played on HD-DVD or Bluray, and they will be protected in the same way ps3 games are.

    PC gaming will continue as its always done, or it will decline. Pcs are too technical for the majority of the population to accept. When I put a playstation game in a playstation console - I know its going to work. I'm not going to have to go into the options and tailor my settings to compromise between graphics/gameplay and fiddle with settings. Also playing with a controller developed for games - and not typing - makes a lot more sense don't you think? Also you only have to upgrade every 4-5 years instead of every year to play the latest pc game.

    Exactly why PC Gamers are NERDS. They will complain that the Blu-Ray drive containing, Ps3 is $600 then turn around, go to CompUSA (or wherever nerds shop) and buy a $600 graphics card to stick into their $2000 PC that still doesn't have a next-generation disc drive. Makes complete sense... no seriously... it does.
