    Judging from your post count, you clearly like to spend more time interacting with digital people than real ones. If that works for you, fine.

    As far as the pre-teen with bad grammar telling me that I'm the reason Wii doesn't have decent online play:

    I've played videogames since 1987. I've owned every major system except PS3 and all different types of games. Because of my support for the industry, I am a reason the Wii, 360 and PS3 were made along with you and everyone else than loves and purchases videogames.

    However, the Wii is the first system to me that doesn't start to feel like work after a while. It's always a pleasure to play, like videogames are supposed to be. They're meant to be a distraction, not some life-consuming addiction.

    So am I not a hardcore gamer because I don't want to play strangers online? If yes, then fine. I'm not hardcore. But I have a lot more friends than friend codes. And I'm happy with that.
    "Kids, let me tell you about another so-called "wicked" guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas, and he didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was... I forget. But the point is... well, I forget that too. Marge, you know who I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?"

    So if you have nearly 4'000 your automatically in this category no matter how long you've been here?

    Nice judgement right there buddy.

    I haven't actually yet stated if online or not matters to me so I'd prefer you don't judge me by that.

    Casual doesn't have to be a party game.


    Edit: I never said being casual was bad.

    I told you... You really do have poor grammar, Jam.

    Now, I think that online play is what people are looking for in a game, it takes competition to new sorts of levels. Sure, there's lots of people who disconnect but, c'mon, they're way better than all the "real" friends I have, even though I really don't have that many. In fact, my friends can't play games, I look for online play to play against them.

    Also, I'd like to match up the skill of my online friends for kicks. Y'know if they were good at a game I'm going to trust their opinion on other aspects, and I'd associate them with genres, unless they're just good at everything. If you don't know my specialty in games then you just haven't seen me bragging all over this site yet... Hard thing to picture.

    Okay, there's big headed losers like myself but if someone can shut me up then fair play, it's all harmless banter. The fun of competing against someone that isn't a computer is great, as computers always have a stuck level, and everyone knows the harder computers are always possible to defeat.

    I've came across a few hackers, but much more disconnectors in games, and that's what really annoys me because they don't get into the spirit of the game. The whole idea of online play isn't flawed, it offers me a little variety and competition in my games, not monotonous agony facing off easy computers.

    Oh just online play makes me view different aspects of my game, lets me get the full potential, you can always pick up a few hints and tips with it. Plus, the more you play them the more you improve, maybe those people who are actual impossible to beat are reachable if you warm up on some other players.

    Neh, not much of a rant from me today, but I'm shooting blanks.
    I love you, Adam.

    That I suck at everything? Meh, you would of found out sooner or later.

    He was talking about me then switched to this:

    As far as the pre-teen with bad grammar telling me that I'm the reason Wii doesn't have decent online play

    ^^

    Ah yes sorry, I was skimming. I didn't see the words "As far as the pre-teen...", indicating a switch in the target.

    I hope you don't think I was pointing at you when I asked the question "what's wrong with being a casual gamer" I was just asking in general - it seems like people try hard to not be classified as a casual gamer.

    I love you, Adam.
