Casual vs. Hardcore

PC IGN put out this interesting piece on findings from the gameplay characteristics of casual & hardcore enthusiasts.

Of course the study was conducted by the Casual Games Association (CGA), so it found that everyone is a casual gamer and only less than 15% of the total population (every person on Earth, not just the U.S. mind you) is considered a hardcore gamer.
Soooo...um....yah...the thing is that the CGA is looking to support growth in the casual gamer market, given that they are the Casual Games Association. It's kinda like the NRA doing a PSA on the benefits of handguns. It's not like they're an unbiased source of information.

Whoops, here's the right video I was looking for.

But, then again, who isn't biased. I'd be hypocritical to say that I wasn't biased towards truth, freedom, and the killing prowess of a Black Talon cartridge. In my case, I think I fall into the hardcore camp, then. Whew. So glad I got that off my chest.
